Questions on ADRV9026 and gui issue

Hi,

  [1] how close is adrv9009 to adrv9026. I could NOT find adrv9026 related hdl files on adi-github. So, i plan to use adrv9009 HDL reference design. can u plz throw more light on the possibility to use adrv9009 hdl files to integrate with adrv9026 device/board.

  [2] Support with zcu102 board: - is there any reason why adi preferred to integrate adrv9026 with ads9 board, but NOT regular boards like zcu102 with fmc connectors. My question is integration of zcu102 with adrv9026 board feasibility.

 [3] Followed procedure exactly in doc to connect gui to board. ensured ping [to board] works and PC firewall is disabled. leds ds801 and ds802 are illuminated.

i get this error

============================

Unable to connect to device.

Connection process failed at step: Getting device link. Exception message: Could not load file or assembly 'Fx3Interface.dll' or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not.be found.

=====================

[4] after step 3, sometimes the gui freezes.

[5] eval board does not have any onboard PA. please confirm

Thanks

    1]  ADRV9026 HDL files are not available. ADRV9009 and ADRV9026 are totally different chips.

    API's are provided for ADRV9026 , you can follow the flow followed in reference HDL for ADRV9009  and use same procedure for ADRV9026.

    2] ADRV9026 will work only with ADS9. There is no support planned with ZCU102. 

    3] Can you provide hardware details, Which chip is mounted on your evaluation board ? 

    Are you getting the errors when attempting to connect GUI to board ? Can you share screen shot of GUI .

    5] Evaluation board does not contain any PA or LNA. 

  • Hi,

    Notes: - 

      [1] I am using ads9 Mother Board + adrv9026 Eval Board.

      [2] I followed exact procedure in the UG [hardware setup page 251 to 256 and beyond] and i get the errors as listed above.

      [3] the errors which i pasted are from adrv9026 GUI. In other words, both are same.

      [4] i ensured 122.88MHz clock of 1.2V cmos is fed into adrv9026 eval board.

      [5] i ensured LED's [ds802 and ds801] lighting according to doc. also checked ping works from PC to ads9 linux.

      [6] ensured that firewall is disabled in PC and also firewall rules are bypassed for adrv9026 software gui.

    Questions:-

    [A] what else can be issue? is the source code [causing  above error] available for viewing modifying/editing. can u plz point?

    [B] I tried ssh into linux with root and root as Username and password. it did not work. let me know login credentials for ads9 linux board. Is linux not allowed to be accessed by users?

    [C] Can the linux running on ads9 Mother board can be recompiled? if so, can you please point to source code for the same? if not, can you point to latest binary images for same?

    Thanks

    Hope you are using the SD card shipped along with EVB Kit to boot the ADS9 board.

    HARDWARE KIT
    The ADRV9026 demonstration system kit contains:  The CE board in form of a daughter card with FMC connector  One (1) 12 V wall connector power supply cable
     One (1) SD card containing image of Linux operating system with required evaluation software. SD card type is 16 GB size, Type 10
    The ADS9 demonstration system kit contains:  The ADS9 motherboard with FMC connector
     One (1) 12 V, 1.5 A power supply for powering the board

    Are you able to ping to ADS9 board with IP 192.168.1.10?

  • Hi,

       i did put that information in my first post "ensured ping [to board] works and PC firewall is disabled".

    your mentioned hardware details match with the board, i have here.

    Two micro SD cards are included, "TRX" -- for ADRV9026 evaluation boards and "HSX" -- for MxFETm evaluation boards.

    Please make sure you are using the TRX SD card

    If still issue is seen please try reinstalling the GUI with X86 version. Also share GUI screen shot if issue persists.

  • Hi Vinod, PValavan,

                may this could be issue.

                All, i got is only one sd card with the entire package.

               Are these [TRX] images available on ADI website for download?

    Thanks

    Can you please share your official mail ID or update your profile with same so that we can request local sales to contact you ?

  • Hi,

       [1] i think i have the right image. I found it from dts file in the sd card.

       [2] attached is the GUI error screenshot.

      [3] regarding right sd image confirmation, i will contact Vinod on his official email id.

       

    Thanks
