ADC32RF45EVM: Direct programming interface without app

Part Number: ADC32RF45EVM

Hi Team,

My Customer is working with our ADC32RF45EVM + TSW14J56EVM, they would like to know if there is a way they can directly interface it with our C++ test suite for automation? Is there an API document and/or library available? I.e. which methods does the EVM GUI use to communicate with the board, set the necessary registers, etc?

Looking forward to your inputs

Regards,

    Renan,

    We are looking into this.

    Hi Renan,

    For HSDC pro (TSW14J56EVM) automation manual and examples, please refer to files in HSDC Pro installation folder:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Texas Instruments\High Speed Data Converter Pro\HSDCPro Automation DLL\Manual and Examples" 

    We don't support automation of ADC32RF45EVM GUI. But it is possible to program FTDI chip (USB) on ADC32RF45EVM directly using C++. Please refer to FTDI website for this.

    Hi Vijay,

    Thank you for your reply on this inquiry.

    Unfortuantley my Customer already knew about the HSDC Pro Automation DLL.They also realized that they need the DAC3XJ8X GUI to program the DAC which they also evaluate. In total they will be having three programs in the background, of which only one can be somewhat controlled by the test suite. They also notice that it seems that the programs are created using LabVIEW, and they think they could figure out the interfaces ourselves. Is it possible if we can  provide the labview projects/VIs to them that create the executables of HSDC Pro, ADC32RFxx EVM GUI, and DAC3XJ8X GUI?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi Renan,

    Can the customer use automation VIs for devices GUIs as well? This will allow them to automate GUI reg write and read. 

    We can't share the LabVIEW project as it has lot of TI specific architecture implementation and complicated to document.

    Hello Vijay, thank you for your answers so far!

    Regarding your question: "Can the customer use automation VIs for devices GUIs as well? This will allow them to automate GUI reg write and read."

    Yes we would be happy to directly read/write the EVM/ADC/DAC registers if this is what you mean. That should more or less allow the automation particularly of the setup procedure that is currently still done by hand via the GUIs. If you could provide us those VIs that do that, we could have a look and hopefully figure out how to go forward from there.

    Thanks again and best regards,

    Hi Emanuel,

    You can find the automation VIs in below folder in the computer with AFE32RFxx EVM GUI installed. 

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Texas Instruments\ADC32RFxx EVM GUI\Automation Function APIs
