Part Number: AFE5816EVM

Dear Professionals, 

We have been developing 16 channel ultrasound system by using TSW1400EVM and AFE5816EVM. It is working well. I configured DTGC of AFE5816 device as internal non-uniform mode from HMC-DAQ GUI. I can read a register of each Bank.  However, I can not change /write/ any data to the register. How to write a data to a register of a Bank? May I use burst mode, in this case?

I have some question about AFE5816EVM device, I little bit confused. We have AFE5816EVM version Rev.C /MHR012 REV C/. I read documents the device only support LVDS interface and not support JESD240B interface, is it? However, the board can be soldered a FMC connector /J60/ in bottom side of this EVM. If we solder this FMC connector, Could we use JESD204B interface and/or LVDS interface?

Thank you

  • Hello Enkhbat,

    It is not straight forward to switch to JESD interface with the AFE5816EVM.
    We recommend that you get the AFE58JD16EVM if you would like to use JESD interface.
    Also TSW1400EVM does not support JESD204B interface. You will need the FPGA data capture card TSW14J56EVM.

    Thank you for your support,

    I got it. Also, I configured DTGC of AFE5816 device as internal non-uniform mode from HMC-DAQ GUI. I can read a register of each Bank. However, I CAN NOT change /write/ any data to the register.

    My question is 

    How to write a data to a register of a Bank by using HMC-DAQ GUI? May I use burst mode, in this case?

    Hi Enkhbat,

    To change the DTGC memory contents using HMC-DAQ GUI, you can run a script in HMC-DAQ GUI similar to the one attached to this post.

    Make sure it is a .cfg file.

    Sincerely,

    Olu
