The SDP board evaluation system contains ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive devices. Electrostatic charges readily accumulate on the human body and equipment and can discharge without detection. Permanent damage may occur on devices subjected to high-energy discharges. Proper ESD precautions are recommended to avoid performance degradation or loss of functionality. Store unused SDP boards in the protective shipping package.
When removing the SDP board from the package, handle the board carefully to avoid the discharge of static electricity, which can damage some components.
Perform the following tasks to safely install the SDP board onto the computer.
There are two stages in the software application installation procedure. The first installs the application software. The second installs the .NET Framework 3.5 and the necessary drivers.
Before using the SDP board, verify the driver software has installed properly.
