ADS131B04-Q1EVM: decode bin file?

Part Number: ADS131B04-Q1EVM

What do I use to decode the .bin file the utility generates?

  • Hi Dean,

    Would you confirm what you're looking to accomplish?  The .bin file we use in our FPGA will not function as a generic FPGA code example for the ADS131B04 because our EVM platforms implement a generic pattern generator in the FPGA which has a lot of extra overhead, setup, and configurability versus directly coding patterns to talk with the ADS131B04.

  • Thanks, Collin. I believe Dean is referring to the BIN files used to save the raw ADC data as shown below (Dean - please confirm this is what you meant).

    One option I believe you can use is a plugin called "HexEditor" for Notepad++. Honestly, I find this rather difficult to use and I'm not yet convinced how the data from the PHI controller board is being parsed and displayed.

    A more direct and simpler approach, I think, would be to right-click on the plot displaying the ADC channel data from the last capture and select either:

    1. Export -> Export Data To Clipboard. Data can be pasted directly into Excel or another program.
    2. Export -> Export Data to Excel. Data is exported directly to a new Excel file.
