DLP NIRscan EV: Only 3 buttons displayed in the Homepage

Dear TI community, 

After powering-up and getting to the homepage, the Download Scan Data Files and the Slow Scan buttons are missing. I am using Win 7 and Chrome.

I made no other installation than the RNDIS driver

Thanks a lot for your insights!

  • Hi Frederic,

    Are you able to take a regular scan? Is the SW/FW on your EVM completely up to date?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Hi Paul

    Thanks, I installed DLPR350PROM-3.0.0. How shall I check for SW/FW versions?

    Scans function but only in the 1350-2050 nm range

    Regards

  • In reply to Frederic Kosmowski:

    Hi Frederic,

    I think the issue is that the NIRScan EVM is not compatible with the newest version of the DLPR350 FW, you need v2.0. Do you have a copy of that FW you can load onto your device?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Thanks Paul,

    Seems like only a V3 is available online. I did get a CD-Rom with the
    device but I believe these are Linux softwares.

    Where can I find that FW?

    Best regards
  • In reply to Frederic Kosmowski:

    Frederic,

    Version 3.0 of the DLPC350 firmware should work with the NIRscan Application software v2.x. The NIRscan Application software requires v2.x or greater of the DLPC350 firmware.

    Just to summarize,

    • The software for the NIRscan application is available at this page. Scroll to the bottom under Available Versions. There are two versions one for Windows PC and one for Linux PC. Follow the directions in Appendix C of the User's Guide. Appendix C.1 shows how to create the SD card for a Windows PC.
    • The firmware for the DLPC350 is available at this page. Download the DLPR350PROM_V3.0. Follow the steps in Appendix C.3 to upgrade the DLPC350 firmware.

    Best regards,
    Pedro

    Dear Pedro,

    Thanks for your answer.

    Following Appendix C.1, I managed to create a SD card that was renamed 'BEAGLE BONE' and contains 2.19 Mb of files.

    Then, I tried to follow Appendix C.3 but there is no reaction (GUI not displaing) )when plugging the device (point 4).

    The C:\Texas Instruments-DLP folder contains the following:

    DLPLCR4500GUI-2.0.0

    DLPR350PROM-3.0.0

    NIRscan_2.0.0

    Kind regards,

    Frederic

    Frederic,

    Sorry for the long delay. When following appendix C.3, you're not able to get the GUI to open? In the DLPLCR4500GUI-2.0.0 folder, is there a .exe file that you can click on? I would also recommend that you download the latest GUI from the DLPLCR4500EVM page.

    It is good that you can create the SD card - once you can connect to the GUI, things should go smoothly.

    Hi Paul and thanks for your answer,

    In the DLPLCR4500GUI-2.0.0 folder, LightCrafter4500 is the only available .exe (others are application extensions).

    Still no reaction when plugging in, any idea?

    Thanks for your quick feedback

    Frederic

  • In reply to Frederic Kosmowski:

    Hi Frederic,

    Please accept my apologies - it's been a while on this issue and I would like to clarify where we stand:

    Right now, if you click on Lightcrafter4500.exe to run it and then plug in your NIRscan EVM, the GUI does not recognize that there is a connected device?

    -Paul
  • In reply to Frederic Kosmowski:

    Hi Paul,

    No, it doe snot. Either by launching DLPLCR4500GUI-3.0.1 or DLPLCR4500GUI-2.0.
    The Sd card is on the device

    Thanks for your help!
