System Setup & Evaluation

The development kit is delivered with a set of accessories required to put the system together and get it up and running in no time.

This is what you'll find in the development kit box:

  • 1 x AD-APARD32690-SL board
  • 1 x AD-T1LUSB2.0-EBZ 10BASE-T1L to USB adapter board
  • 1 x PROFIBUS (1x2x18AWG) cable for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) connectivity
  • 1 x USB 2.0 cable

Application Development

The AD-APARD32690-SL firmware is based on ADI's open-source no-OS framework. It includes the bare-metal device drivers for all the components in the system as well as example applications enabling connectivity via the 10BASE-T1L interface for system configuration and data transfer.
