Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AFE4404
I installed and carefully assembled the the hardware boards (sensor and micro-controller). After going through the procedure to disable signature enforcement given here earlier, the I see AFE44xx EVM on COM6 in the Device Manager. The device dialog driver tab says:
AFE44xx EVM (COM6)
Driver provider: Texas INstruments
Driver Date: 9/6/2010
Driver Version: 126.96.36.199
Digital Signer: Not digitally signed.
When I launch the AFE4404 EVM GUI from C:\Program Files (x86)\Texas Instruments\AFE4404 EVM GUI\ it still does not work. I get the same old message as I got before I got the driver installed without signature:
An error occured while communicating with the device
Press Continue to Simulate Communication
Press Stop & Close to Exit
When I select Stop and Close the GUI hangs and I have to kill it in Task Manager. If I select Continue to Simulate Communication I get the GUI with multiple tabs including data acquisition, but I don't get any contact with the actual hardware boards. When I press Switch 1 on on the micro-controller board the Device Manager resets properly and show the board. It seems that there is actual data exchange between the micro-controller board and the Win 10 laptop via USB. The lights on the boards come up so it looks as though the EVM kit is in good order.
Is this project actually still active? Do I have the best driver? 2010 was a while back.
Any thoughts on how I can get this evaluation kit actually running on Windows 10?
