setup: - ADS9 Mother board + adrv9025 rf eval board + software gui + 122.88MHz reference clock to J613 connector.
background: - single ended clock of 122.88MHz is provided to the J613 connector. Ensured clk is ~7dbm [as per UG].
issue: - PLL lock failure issue in GUI [screenshot attached].
[a] i dont see any LEDs illuminated on the AD9528 chip on RF card. is that expected?
[b] there is no info on jumper setting in UG for RF daughter card? should it be left default?
Hi ADI Team,
 can i get more info on this issue?
You are able to connect to the board as below, but while programming (Program in red) you are getting above error , Is my understanding correct ?
UG 1727 has details on Evaluation board bring up. (https://www.analog.com/media/radioverse-adrv9026/ADRV9026-System-Development-User-Guide-UG-1727.pdf)
Once powered on the red led will come up in few seconds and it will be on for approx 4 minutes (until the system boots). Once booted you will see green connected message in GUI as shown above.
There are No jumper settings change required. Default should work.
Please share full GUI screenshot if issue persists.
Thanks for reply.
Default did not work [after powerup].
The program button was red.
 I had to do Device->Update->Platform Files and then wait for board to reboot.
 After reboot,the program button was activated and i did hit program button.
 now i see the MMCM/PLL lock.
what does step  do and why the board went for reboot after everything is poweredup and gui is connected?
You will get a update platform file message, if the GUI version is new compared to the existing platform files.
For now, i am good with this bringup. Thanks for quick replies and support.
