  1. Just got to the bottom of why my AD1 wouldn't show up on any system I connected it to, the PCB mounted Micro USB connector has completely lifted off the board and pulled up 4 of the 5 pads with it. Really disappointed as this unit has probably had less than 100 connect/disconnect cycles. There was not enough solder on the tabs that hold it on the PCB, it's come clean out leaving slots in the solder pads. I'm not sure how I'm going to repair it, I might re-house it in a Hammond case with a captive USB cable, BNC panel mounts for the analog inputs and wavegen and banana posts for the power supply (I've never used the digital I/O). I'd Recommend anyone with an out of warranty AD1 open it up and check the MicroUSB connector and reflow the mechanical mounting tabs before it goes the same way. Pete
  2. Following up my problem above. I installed Waveforms on a Windows laptop plugged in the AD and found it worked, moved it back to the two Macs and it worked. I'm not sure if the firmware upload on the Mac's broke it but I'm up and running now. Peter
  3. I'm also having problems with the AD Two different Macs, Mini and Macbook Pro. Both see the USB device in the System Report under USB but when Waveforms 2015 (latest version downloaded today) opens the device is not detected. I've tried various lengths of USB cable and directly into the USB ports as well as through a powered USB hub. Peter
  4. +1 I'd like this too. Matlab is overkill and a too expensive for my needs.
  5. Finally a chance to contribute some knowledge back, albeit very simple. Yes you can use any USB A to Micro USB cable of whatever length suits you up to the usual maximum lengths for USB. Pete
