Help ADS1174 + 6416 DSK

Started by June 18, 2012

I am new in this forum and this is my first post. I hope you can help me.

I have a 6146-DSK board and I want to input some values through a ads1174evm connected through a 5-6K interface card. TI sent me a project that was created for the ads1274 as an example and I tried to run it but did not work. There is a tool called DSP Plugin that lets to configure some models of ADC/DAC from TI. They use it in some of their example projects (as the on of the ads1274 that they sent me) but the 1174 is not among the available devices.

So basically I want to use the McBSP port in master mode to communicate SPI (so I can read some values through the adc and store them in the DSK memory). Does anybody know any steps, guide, information, solution to make it work?. I havenĀ“t found any guide that explains step by step the process to communicate the devices.

I guess that somebody maybe has worked with similar devices and face such a problem.

Thanks a lot,
