  1. Hi @SpainFPGAGuy, That is normal, if you ground the rest and measure the voltage on the desired channel you will see that it works ok. -Ciprian
  2. Hi @SpainFPGAGuy, Sorry for the late response, could you please load the attached .bit file using SD or USB? It will display on the UART port (baud 9600 8N1) the value read at vaux2/3/10/11. Please let me know if this works for you. - Ciprian PS. If it works, contains an example project created in Vivado 2019.1 download.bit
  3. Hi @V94, I'm unsure how you have manged to get a bit stream with the MIPI_CSI_2 IP core force upgrade. The core needs to be updated to the 2019.1 by us first; there are some primitives which have changed. This means that it should fail at synthesis in 2019.1. Unfortunately I cannot give you an estimate when we will be able to update it to the latest version. -Ciprian
  4. As far as I can tell from your code, you are continuously reinitialize and reconfigure the XSysMon (the XADC driver). During this process, which is redundant, you are loosing a lot of samples. Try this instead: #include <stdio.h> #include "xparameters.h" #include "platform.h" #include "xsysmon.h" #include "xil_printf.h" #include "xstatus.h" #include "xuartlite.h" #define UARTLITE_DEVICE_ID XPAR_UARTLITE_0_DEVICE_ID #define SYSMON_DEVICE_ID XPAR_SYSMON_0_DEVICE_ID #define UART_BUFFER_SIZE 16 #define NUMBER_OF_SAMPLES 4500 int main() { static XSysMon SysMonInst; /* System Monitor driver instance */ unsigned int ReceivedCount = 0; unsigned char RecvBuffer[UART_BUFFER_SIZE]; XUartLite UartLite; unsigned int channel = 3; int Status; XSysMon_Config *ConfigPtr; XSysMon *SysMonInstPtr = &SysMonInst; int *sample; //External memory address to store samples sample=(int *)0x60000000; init_platform(); Status = XUartLite_Initialize(&UartLite, UARTLITE_DEVICE_ID); ReceivedCount = 0; while(ReceivedCount==0){ ReceivedCount = XUartLite_Recv(&UartLite, (unsigned char *) RecvBuffer, 1); } ConfigPtr = XSysMon_LookupConfig(SYSMON_DEVICE_ID); if (ConfigPtr == NULL) { return XST_FAILURE; } XSysMon_CfgInitialize(SysMonInstPtr, ConfigPtr, ConfigPtr->BaseAddress); XSysMon_SetAvg(SysMonInstPtr, XSM_AVG_0_SAMPLES); XSysMon_SetAdcClkDivisor(SysMonInstPtr, 39); XSysMon_SetSequencerMode(SysMonInstPtr, XSM_SEQ_MODE_SINGCHAN); XSysMon_SetCalibEnables(SysMonInstPtr, XSM_CFR1_CAL_PS_GAIN_OFFSET_MASK | XSM_CFR1_CAL_ADC_GAIN_OFFSET_MASK); Status= XSysMon_SetSingleChParams(SysMonInstPtr, XSM_CH_AUX_MIN+channel, FALSE, FALSE, TRUE); if(Status != XST_SUCCESS) { return XST_FAILURE; } /* * Disable all the alarms in the Configuration Register 1. */ XSysMon_SetAlarmEnables(SysMonInstPtr, 0x0); while(1){ /* * Wait till the End of conversion */ //print("Capturing\n\r"); for(int i=0;i<NUMBER_OF_SAMPLES;i++){ XSysMon_GetStatus(SysMonInstPtr); /* Clear the old status */ while ((XSysMon_GetStatus(SysMonInstPtr) & XSM_SR_EOC_MASK) != XSM_SR_EOC_MASK); //Four last bits are noise *(sample+i) = XSysMon_GetAdcData(SysMonInstPtr, XSM_CH_AUX_MIN+channel); } //print("Finish capture\n\r"); //xil_printf("samples=np.array(["); for(int i=0;i<NUMBER_OF_SAMPLES-1;i++){ xil_printf("%d,",*(sample+i)); } xil_printf("%d\r\n",*(sample+NUMBER_OF_SAMPLES-1)); xil_printf("end\n"); } cleanup_platform(); return 0; }
  5. @HeroGian Your question is somewhat tricky. It is doable on an ARM but as far as I can gather it's not dynamic, you either start without caches and then everything moves slower or you continue using caches. The dynamical approach is somewhat tricky because you risk freezing your OS. I you want to try that you can find more info here: There might be a better way to do it. What you actually want is just a hardware accelerated memcpy in the DDR, you could try to handle this like an DMA transfer in to DDR from the PL and use a coherency function for it. These are kernel space specific functions so I guess you will have to wirte a kernel driver for it. I strongly suggest reading about continuous memory (CMA) and coherent data transfers + the ACP port of the Zynq before proceeding. Here is a link which might give you an insight in to what and why I suggest this. Although you are using a Zynq, there might be some useful information in the ZynqMP wiki by xilinx about what you need. Sorry for not being able to give you a more coherent and straight forward answer, what you are attempting is tricky. Good Luck, -Ciprian

    PCAM OV5640 Power

    Hi @Sduru, These are BSP errors you will have to regenerate the bsp. Just right click on it in the project explorer (on the left of the main SDK windows) and hit Re-generate BSP sources. These are common xilinx SDK errors, not specific to this project. -Ciprian
  7. Hi @daeroro, #define SPI_DEV "/dev/spidev32766.0" Judging by the .dtsi this should be something else... probably something like spidev1.0. You will need to change to the right device name. To determine which is the right name please run ls /dev/ | grep spi on the running petalinux target. -Ciprian
  8. @ahmedengr.bilal Sorry I have no experience with that, you will need to look it up. -Ciprian

    PCAM OV5640 Power

    Hi @Sduru, In order to see data transfers on the AXI-Stream interface which is connected to the PCAM you will need to configure the PCAM and enable the DMA transfers to do so. This is accomplished using the SDK, therefor you will need to program and monitor the ILA as well as run the SDK program to see any changes on the ILA. I'm guessing that you have a problem with running the code which would explain why you don't see the menu on the console or any traffic on the ILA. I'm guessing that your terminal is set up properly (although using COM1 is unusual), because you mentioned that you ran a hello world project and it displayed the message on the terminal, which leaves us with the possibility that you either have an error running the code in SDK or that there is a bug which does not allow you to get to the menu part of the PCAM code. To test this please put a xil_printf("hello world\n"); at the beginning of the main function and check if it is displayed. -Ciprian
  10. Hi @ahmedengr.bilal, Like I mentioned in the previous post there is no HDMI output from the Linux side, neither the embedded rootFS provided by petalinux nor the kernel configuration we give out is set to accommodate this feature. Regarding the missing media-ctl and v4l2-ctl, you have not activated the v4l-utils in the rootfs configuration of the petalinux. to do this you need to navigate to your petalinux project folder and run: petalinux-config -c rootfs Once the menu appears you need to go to Filesystem Packages->misc->v4l-utils and activate: v4l-utils, libv4l, media-ctl. Rebuild the whole project and it should be working now. -Ciprian
  11. HI @osmaan_khan, To clarify on xillybus and XADC, we have never configured the design which they provide, therefore we don't know how to add the XADC IP to it and interface it with their linux kerne and rootfs. Regarding the VCC and the GND pins, the PMOD connector JA can be configured as XADC or can be used as a simple PMOD connector (following the PMOD standard you need VCC and GND), when using it in a XADC configuration the VCC and the GND can be ignored. All the information on how the XADC works, configurations and limitations can be found in ug480 form xilinx. For instance, you cannot measure a voltage grater 1V using the XADC, you will have to scale your voltage in order to measure it with the XADC (maybe use a voltage divider, it depends on you circuit). The XADC is a Xilinx IP which is configurable both from the IP configuration window in Vivado and trough some registers using the AXI-Lite interface, with a xilinx kernel you should have access to it if the XADC driver is active in the kernel and if the .dts is configured to include the IP. We cannot help you with this, unfortunately; you will have to ask the support team from xillybus about how to manage this. - Ciprian
  12. Hi @flying, There is a lot to unpack here. Firstly I would like to draw your attention to the fact that this post was originally started by malkauns regarding the porting of the petalinux project with PCAM capabilities to the Zybo Z7-10 board, very similar to a previous topic which you have started. If you follow the steps in the previous post by vicentiu you should have the HW configuration finished by vivado, and then all you need to run is: petalinux-config --get-hw-description=<PATH-TO-HDF-DIRECTORY> petalinux-build petalinux-package --boot --force --fsbl images/linux/zynq_fsbl.elf --fpga images/linux/system_wrapper.bit --u-boot In the Petalinux-Zybo-Z7-20 project and you should have everything working the way it's described in the projects readme. Secondly (although off topic), regarding the "the "desktop" of the Petalinux.", our petalinux project so far has no GUI in the FS(file system) therefore you will not be able to see anything on the HDMI display. The HDMI is currently configured as a pass trough, in the petalinux project, at 720p; which means everything that is sent via the HDMI RX connector is forwarded to the HDMI TX connector without processing. All of this is routed trough the FPGA, meaning that without programming the .bit into the FPGA, the HDMI will not work. For more details on this please refer to the block diagram of the Zybo-Z7-20-base-linux which is an intuitive description of what I explained here. Lastly, regarding the rest of the questions (also off topic), most are answered by reading trough the petalinux user guide ug1144 which describes how petalinux works and the workflow. I would also recommend reading up on how the Zynq processor is used in bare-metal and the role of the ps7_init files, the .bit, the .hdf and the BOOT.bin.Unfortunately going in to detail about these, would be hard without making it in to a tutorial or a step by step guide with page long explanations at every step. I hope this helped clarify some of your queries. -Ciprian
  13. Hi @Luighi Vitón, Thanks for your reply and for your heads up, I'm glad you managed to get it working. --Ciprian
  14. Hi @fangzr, It seems to me that you teacher has asked you to write a kernel driver from scratch (more or less) for a wireless module. Depending on what he expects the driver module to contain, you could either write only the driver for the module it self (RTL8812au for example) or the module and the corresponding dependencies which will make development very hard because you will need to integrate a lot in to the kernel. I have unfortunately no experience with WiFi kernel driver development, but I would take it one step at a time. Starting with understanding kernel drivers and what their role is and then looking over the WiFi kernel interface, you can read about this here, understanding the structure of it and then starting to write my own driver by looking at already existing one (RT3070 for example). I would also recommend to read about the various forms of kernel debugging like KGDB and how to do that or Xilinx has a brief step by step "tutorial" here about using Xilinx SDK for kernel debugging. It's no an easy task, Good Luck. -Ciprian
  15. Hi @fangzr, I am not familiar with RTL8812au, but I managed to set up a ath9k dongle driver for the Zybo Z7-20 with petalinux. For the ATH9K it's easier because it has the driver in the kernel you just need to activate it. Regarding the RTL8812au all I can tell you from experience is that some Wireless dongles need additional firmware, like the ATH9K, which will be loaded in to the wireless automatically over USB, provided you set up your USB port to identify mass storage devices. These should be copied in to the corresponding folder on the rootfs of your target. Another critical issue is the driver dependencies, some Wireless drivers need to have certain Kernel drivers loaded in order for them to work, like the MAC80211 stack in the Kernel for instance. Please make sure that your driver is not depended on anything else. Based on the log you have sent us, I would start with this. -Ciprian
