Part Number: AFE7422EVM

We have followed  the steps as per the user guide and installed both HSDC Pro and AFE7422(2.2.7 version) exe files. For installing labview internet access was allowed and labview software was also downloaded and got installed automatically.

Settings were updated in HSDC Pro GUI and AFE GUI. After setting the mode while running the sequence it is showing Error code 7.

What is the possible solution?

    Can you please send me a snap shot of the GUI error you are seeing. Also send me a snapshot of the advanced panel in the GUI. 

    Thanks

    Sir,

    Error 7 was solved when we tried in another laptop and the following error has popped up when using internal clock. screenshot of the same is attached.

    AFE version is 2.2.7 and HSDC Pro version is 5.0

    Julin, 

    Are you getting any errors in the AFE74xx GUI during device configuration? 

    Can you try a few things for me. 

    1. Verify that you only have one High Speed Data Converter folder in the Texas Instruments folder in your C drive. Reference the path in the following. 

    2. Uninstall HSDC pro. Delete the HSDC Pro folder in the C drive. Restart PC. Re-install HSDC Pro. 

    Let me know if either of these options did the trick for you.

    Reply: instead of Error 1097,following message is observed while sending tone in HSDC Pro GUI.

    Note:mode selection(Mode 4 Tx),sample rate was entered as given in the user guide screenshots

    Julin, 

    I am not able to replicate your error on my setup. Where are you downloading the version of HSDC pro you are using? Can you right click on the High Speed Data Converter folder in your Cdrive, select properties and let me know the size of the folder. Can you also verify that the voltage and current setting to your TSW14J57 EVM are correctly set to 12V, 4A limits. Do you only see this error with Mode4 alone or Have you tried any other modes? If you have not tried to verify other modes, Can you try programming the AFE using Mode6, using Mode6 ini files in HSDC pro and see if that works. 

    Thanks

    As discussed TSW14J57EVM  set to 12V, 4A limits, output has come ,after sometime it has reached more than 2.9A and a smoke was observed near FB14/U23. Immediately board has been switched off.

    One more observation found is that once current touched 2.7A Power failure red LED started glowing brightly.

    After going through the schematics design files from Texas instruments site online, we tried to trouble shoot the portion where fumes were observed. FB14 was short and TP55 was open and found the area intact with respect to schematics.

    So we have powered on again today with 12V, 2A limits and all the LEDs are glowing as required and no further fumes are observed. But the output is not there.

    Whether we have to switch back to 4A limits again and experiment?

    Pls suggest

    Julin, 

    You can try again but its possible that judging by the issues you have seen, the TSW14J57 board in your possession is not reliable. If you increase the current limit and still there is no output, please request a replacement from whoever first provided you the EVM.

    Thanks
