Hi Sean,

I receives the boards today. Everything is in order.

I'd have a few questions though:

1* Looks like the ADM1025 evaluation board needs an external power
source. As far as I can see, there are only 3 pins used on the parallel
port, so no power can be drawn from it (as it is the case with the
ADM1032EB). What is strange is that the power LED sometimes *does* light
up as I plug the parallel port. How is it possible? Am I missing
something?

Anyway I'll go and buy a power supply tomotrow, then I'll be able to
play with the board :)

2* Is there a fundamental difference between the ADM series and the ADT
series?

3* What does it take to a chip to be "ACPI-compliant"? For example the
ADM1032 is tagged "ACPI-compliant". I wonder what it has that other
chips don't.

The ADT7468EB is a monster! Impressive. I gave it a try using the USB
access. Quite complex in fact. I'd need to read the data sheet I guess.
One thing at a time though, and the ADM1025 has a higher priority.

4* Looks like it can be plugged in a PCI slot? Is it safe to use in a
regular PC?

5* Is this chip likely to be found in computer systems?

Thanks a lot for the boards :)
