|IMU Evaluation/EVAL-ADIS Product Support List|
Vibration Evaluation Software installation only requires two simple step:
1. Download, unzip and install the EVAL-ADIS USB Driver (click here to see the download link)
2. Download, unzip and copy the Vibration*.exe file to the desired location on the test PC (click here to see the download link)
After downloading the EVAL-ADIS USB Driver file, extract the SDPDrivers.exe file from the zip file, into a convenient location and then double click on it to start the process.
When the setup wizard opens, click on Next to start the installation process
Click on Next to accept the default driver location.
The process will involve at least two progress bars that look like the following:
If you encounter this type of message during the process, click on Install to continue with the installation.
Once the installation has completed, click on Finish to complete the process.
Download to the Vibration Evaluation Program package from the EVAL-ADIS home page, under SOFTWARE AND TOOLS (Click here to access). Extract the *.exe file from the zip file and copy it to any directory on the PC.
Plug the EVAL-ADIS (with ADIS16xxx/PCBZ device installed) and wait for both LED1 and LED2 to illuminate on the EVAL-ADIS. After LED1 and LED2 illuminate, double click on the *.exe file to launch the Vibration Evaluation Program and access the Main Menu.
You might see the appearance of a Window that indicates a search for an SDP device (USB), but this will disappear quickly. If this error message appears, click OK to proceed to the Main Screen.
Click on Device, located on the left hand side of the Menu bar, at the top of the Main Screen, to select the appropriate DUT (Device Under Test). In this example, the ADIS16228 is in use. Note that some of the Menu bar options appear in a lighter gray color, to indicate that they are not associated with a particular device. For example, all of the Network options presently only apply to the ADIS16229 at this time, so they will appear in the lighter gray color when either ADIS16227 or [adi>adsi16228|ADIS16228]] options are in use.
The ADIS16227, ADIS16228 and ADIS16229 all have four basic modes of data collection: manual time domain, manual FFT, automatic FFT and automatic time domain. Inside of these products, these modes are typically related to the settings in the REC_CTRL1 register. The Main Screen offers a drop-down selection menu for these modes, along with a Start button to begin operation. At this time, only use the Manual FFT or Manual Time Domain modes in the Main Screen.

Select the Manual FFT mode in the drop down selection menu, then click on the Start button to trigger a single data capture/analysis event. After the data capture and analysis process is complete, the results will appear in the waveform plots.

|REVISION||RELEASE DATE||SUMMARY OF UPDATES|
|v1.3.0||Coming in February, 2014||Full ADIS16223 Evaluation Support|
|v1.2.0||Coming in January, 2014||Full ADIS16227 Evaluation Support|
|Improve USB Connectivity (some have reported loss of USB connection)|
|Expand Periodic FFT mode options for all supported products|
|v1.1.7||12/4/13||Added partial support for the ADIS16227 (Periodic FFT mode not supported)|
|v1.1.6||11/1/13||Extended the wait time to 4 seconds, for each sensor in the Network Scan|
|v1.1.5||N/A||This version corrects a sizing problem in the main waveforms, along with a couple of bugs in other windows.|
|v1.1.4||N/A||Updates for internal use only|
|v1.1.3||N/A||Added delays to Periodic Mode Exit routine register writes.|
|v1.1.2||N/A||Added a dialog box for a user to specify the Update Interval of the Network Periodic Mode.|
|v1.1.1||10/11/2013||Corrected the GUI to indicate “not busy” after a communication is canceled by the user.|
|Added exception handling routines to prevent a program crash and to show the Reconnect Dialog if the USB is disconnected.|
|Expanded the vertical axis range options on the FFT plots (Main Menu) to go down to 0.0001g|
|v1.1.0||N/A||Added “Scan All Channels” option to find nodes that are on different frequency channels|
|Expanded the vertical axis range options on the FFT plots (Main Menu) to go down to 0.001g|
|v1.0.3||9/10/2013||Set the plot scale to +-2g for the first switch to time domain data. This ensures that data is visible on the plot. Subsequent plot mode changes set the scale to the previous user selected value for a particular mode.|
|Set the Mode combo-box to ‘Periodic’ or ‘Manual’ when a demonstration mode is selected. This ensures that the plot mode is appropriate for the data displayed during a demonstration loop.|
|v1.0.2||8/21/2013||Add sensor node selection tabs to Register Access and Alarm menus|
|NOTE: First version posted online at www.analog.com/EVAL-ADIS|
|v1.0.1||8/15/2013||Updated register names to match the ADIS16229 datasheet|
|Increased period mode sleep cycle time to 10 seconds|
