ACE Remote Control

This is a landing page for up-to-date information and examples pertaining to the ACE remote control feature. This feature allows a user to control ACE and evaluation hardware from other languages/applications.

For documentation on the remote control interface and methods, please look under the Help menu in ACE.

Python

Large Data Capture With AD9208

Currently 1GB of data can be captured with the ADS8V1 and 2GB of data can be captured with the ADS7V2 using the AsyncRawCaptureToFile transaction. The following example shows how this transaction can be used from a Python script with the AD9208 evaluation platform.

Setup: AD9208 board connected to ADS7V2 or ADS8V1 motherboard. ADC clock = 3GHz, REFCLK = 375 MHz

Python Code:

import clr
import sys
import os
import time

# Connect to ACE using the remote control client
sys.path.append(r'C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\ACE\Client')
clr.AddReference('AnalogDevices.Csa.Remoting.Clients')
import AnalogDevices.Csa.Remoting.Clients as adrc
clientManager = adrc.ClientManager.Create()
client = clientManager.CreateRequestClient('localhost:2358')

# Load the AD9208 plug-in
client.AddHardwarePlugin('AD9208-3000EBZ')

# Navigate to initialization wizard and set to one converter
client.set_ContextPath(r'\System\Subsystem_1\AD9208-3000EBZ\AD9208')
client.NavigateToPath('Root::System.Subsystem_1.AD9208-3000EBZ.AD9208')
client.SetWizardParameter('initwizard','jtx_m_cfg','0')
time.sleep(2)
client.ApplyWizardSettings('initwizard','Apply')

# Navigate to capture wizard and set the number of samples to 500MSamples (1GB)
client.NavigateToPath('Root::System.Subsystem_1.AD9208-3000EBZ.AD9208.AD9208 Analysis')
client.SetWizardParameter('captureWizard','validatedSampleCount',str(2**29))

# Divert the output of the ADS7V2/ADS8V1 to a file
client.AsyncRawCaptureToFile(os.path.expanduser('~\Desktop\largeCapture.bin'),'test','false','true')

# Wait up to 5secs for the capture to complete
client.WaitOnRawCaptureToFile('5000','test','false',os.path.expanduser('~\Desktop\largeCapture.bin'))
