ADIS1646X EVALUATION ON A PC

OVERVIEW

Evaluating the ADIS16460 and the AD24000 on a PC requires the use of the ADIS16IMU4/PCBZ and EVAL-ADIS. Aside from this section of the datasheet, the instruction text and graphics identify only the ADIS16460. However, all of these instructions apply to the AD24000 in the same manner. Mention of AD24000 is omitted only to simplify the text.

SETUP

The physical setup requires only three simple steps:

1. Install the DUT (for example, an ADIS16460AMLZ) onto the ADIS16IMU4/PCBZ

2. Connect the ADIS16IMU4/PCBZ to the EVAL-ADISZ

3. Set JP1 Jumper on EVAL-ADISZ

IMU EVALUATION SOFTWARE OVERVIEW

IMU Evaluation Software installation only requires two simple steps:

1. Download, unzip and install the EVAL-ADIS USB Driver http://www.analog.com/en/evaluation/EVAL-ADIS/eb.html#SOFTWARE_AND_TOOLS (click here to see the download link)

2. Download, unzip and copy the IMU_Evaluation*.exe file to the desired location on the test PC (click here to see the download link)

IMU EVALUATION SOFTWARE STARTING POINT

After the USB driver installation is complete, connect the EVAL-ADIS USB connector to the PC, using the USB Mini cable, from the EVAL-ADIS kit. LED2 (below left) will illuminate as soon as this connection is made. This indicates that the EVAL-ADIS has power and is going through its start-up/initialization process. After the EVAL-ADIS completes this process, LED1 (below right) will illuminate, indicating that it is time to launch the IMU Evaluation application. During the initialization process, several messages may appear on the screen. They are related to updating the EVAL-ADIS firmware and establishing communication between the PC and the EVAL-ADIS. Once LED1 lights up, double click on the IMU_Evaluation.exe file to launch the application.

Before Plugging Cable In LED2 = Power OK LED1 = USB Connection Established
Main Window

Once the IMU Evaluation software starts-up, the Main Window will appear and look like the following picture. The second picture provides color-coded boxes to support further discussion of each function in this screen.

The orange box identifies the drop-down menus, which provide a number of useful features.

The Devices option provides a list of products. For evaluation of any ADIS1648x product, click on Devices and then select the part number (ADIS16488, for example). The green box shows the current device selection, which in this case, identifies the ADIS16448 as the current selection.

The Register Access option provides a listing of user-configurable registers available from the part number selected in the “Devices” drop down menu. It also provides read/write access to each one of these registers.

The Data Capture option provides the core data collection function.

The Demos option only supports a 3-D rendering tool on the ADIS16480.

The Tools option provides some diagnostic tools for the USB interface.

The About option provides more detail software revision information.

The purple box identifies the output registers, which update, real-time, after pressing the Read button (see the red box for the location of the Read button).

The yellow box identifies the three waveform recorder windows. The top window contains the three gyroscope outputs. The middle window contains the three accelerometer responses. The bottom window contains the three magnetometer responses. Also, each waveform matches the color of its register (see register titles in the purple box).

Register Access

The purpose of the Register Access window is to provide both read and write access to the user registers in the ADIS1648x products. The following picture shows the appearance of this window.

The color coded boxes illustrate the different functions that this window provides.

The purple box identifies the register category. In addition to the Control/Status, this drop-down control offers access to Output and Calibration registers.

The red box identifies all of the registers that are in the current category. Click on the register name to select a register for individual read/write access.

The green box identifies the read/write control options for the current register selection. Use the hexadecimal format when writing commands to a particular register.

The Update Registers in Category button (orange box) triggers a read and display update of all registers in the current category (red box).

The yellow box identifies the area that provides single-bit command buttons, such as the ones provided by the GLOB_CMD register.

The Save Reg Settings to File command saves all of the registers in the current category into a *.csv (common-delimited) file. The Load Reg Settings from File button reads those settings back into the software package and triggers a routine that updates all registers with the values from this file.

APPLICATION TIP: The Register Access screen writes to user control registers, inside of the ADIS1648x devices, two bytes at a time. So, when configuring a register, make sure to include the hexadecimal number for all 16-bits, before pressing the Write Register button. When using an embedded processor to write to user control registers, inside of the ADIS1648x devices, each command (16-bits) writes to one byte at a time.

Data Capture

The Data Capture function supports synchronous data acquisition, based on the data-ready signal from the ADIS1648x. The following picture represents the Data Capture window, right after opening it from the Main Window and the second picture provides color-coded boxes, in order to support further discussion of each function that is associated with this screen.

The red box identifies all of the registers that are eligible for inclusion in the next acquisition process. Click on each box to include a register in the next data acquisition sequence. The box will have a check mark when it has been selected.

The green box identifies the configuration box for the name and location of the data storage file.

The yellow box identifies a number of configuration options for the data acquisition process. The Record Length is a user input for the total number of samples in a data record. Note that all selected registers will have this number of samples in the data record file, after the acquisition process completes. The Sample Rate represents the rate that the ADIS1648x updates its output register. This depends on the configuration in the DEC_RATE register. For example, if DEC_RATE = 0x0009, the decimation setting is 10, which would result in an update rate of 246 SPS. After each update to the Record Length box, the software calculates the displays the total Capture Time. The Add Header option allows the user to add or remove the header in the data storage file. The Use Scaled Data causes the software to convert the decimal, twos complement number into its representative value. For example, when enabling Use Scaled Data, the gyroscope outputs will be in units of degrees/second.

BASIC OVERVIEW

The IMU Evaluation Software is a MS Windows application that works in conjunction with the EVAL-ADIS2, in order to provide users with a PC-Based interface to most ADIS16xxx products. This platform enables observation of basic sensor functions, read/write access to all user-accessible registers and full-rate data acquisition, which is synchronous with data production of each ADIS16xxx.
