Issue Details

I am using an NFC test suite and I received the following error:

Acquisition Card connection error. Check if no other applications use it.
ADC Calibration inconclusive.

I checked all my connections and they're all correct. Why am I receiving this error?



There is likely a driver conflict with the acquisition card that is causing the issue.
