Get Started with Energy Management Utility Software

1

Install the Energy Management Utility Software. Run the installer and follow the instructions given by the installer. As part of the software installation, a driver will need to be installed in order for the evaluation board to communicate with the software. Accept any prompts from the operating system if permission is needed for this driver installation.

Allow sufficient time for the device to enumerate and be assigned a COM port number. Start the Energy Management Utility application. The attached board should be automatically recognized. If not, click the “Connect” button in the top-right hand corner of the application and allow a moment for a list of connected boards to generate.
