3.2.3 Hardware Installation
At this point, attach the EVM to an open USB port. The EVM can be plugged directly into the port or
attached at the end of a USB extension cable (type A, not supplied). At this point, the power LED should
be lit. Any RFID tag corresponding to a supported protocol can be detected and is indicated by the
corresponding LED.
3.2.4 Software GUI Installation
The software GUI is the file named TRF7960EVM_REVA_GUI_V1.1.zip. It can be unzipped using a
standard unzip program and is a self-contained executable. Create a folder where desired on the host PC
and unzip the executable into that folder. The program can be run from the folder, or a shortcut can be
created and placed on the desktop of the host computer.
When this software is used with the TRF7960 EVM (Rev. A), the program automatically detects the COM
port. The selected COM port is automatically displayed in the text box next to the Select Port button.
In case the program could not detect the COM port, enter the COM port number (e.g., COM3) in the
Select Port window at the bottom right of the GUI as shown following, and click on the Select Port button).
Next, click on Device Manager, then click the + sign next to ports to expand the ports:
