Simple Xscope project example for XK-1A?

Postby maxtorque » Mon Mar 18, 2013 6:07 pm

Hi all, I'm a newbie round here so go easy on me ;-)

I've just dug a XK-1A/XTAG2 out of a drawer and am having a play around with it. So far so, good, but i'm having a silly issue with getting Xscope to work! So, to cut a long story short, is there a published XDE project anywhere that just sends somehthing simple up to the environment? Something basic like a counter for example.

I've attempted to follow the multitudenous instructions in the documentation area, but tbh, for a newby like me, it's all a bit confusing. So i have several questions:

1) I have "imported" XK-1A.n from the library repository, and updated the links section with:

Code: Select all

<Links>
<Link Encoding="2wire" Delays="4,4" Flags="XSCOPE">
  <LinkEndpoint NodeId="0" Link="X0LD"/>
  <LinkEndpoint RoutingId="0x8000" Chanend="1"></LinkEndpoint>
</Link>
 </Links>
But do i need to "unlink" the original library .xn source somehow. i.e. tell the complier to use my modified version in it's place?


2)I have appended the Makefile with -fxscope (some documents suggest -lxscope, what is the difference?)

Code: Select all

XCC_FLAGS_Debug = -g -O0 -fxscope
XCC_FLAGS_Release = -g -O3 -fxscope
(does xscope run in both Release & debug modes?)

3) My main looks like this

Code: Select all

#include <xs1.h>
#include <xscope.h>

#define FLASH_PERIOD 10000000

out port led = XS1_PORT_4F;

void xscope_user_init(void) {
  xscope_register(1,
    XSCOPE_CONTINUOUS, "testvalue",  XSCOPE_INT, "cnt"
  );
}


int main() {
  timer tmr;
  int t,test;
  tmr :> t;

  while (1) {
    led <: 0x3;
    t += FLASH_PERIOD;
    tmr when timerafter(t) :> void;
    led <: 0x0;
    test+=test;
    xscope_probe_data_pred(0, test);
    t += FLASH_PERIOD;
    tmr when timerafter(t) :> void;
  }
 }
Build error is

Code: Select all

XK-1A.xn:43 Error: XN11156 A normal Link node may not contain a sod endpoint.
Many thanks in advance for any help!

Anyone?

Pulling my hair out now!

Tried everywhich way of combinations of:

Flags="SOD" & Flags="XSCOPE"
Link="X0LD" & Link="X0LC"
-fxscope & -lxscope


And about a thousand other ways.

All either error on "Error: XN11156 A normal Link node may not contain a sod endpoint" or compile but no data arrives in XDE

tried the UART version too, no difference

So, if anyone has a simple, working XSCOPE project for XDE / XK-1A i'd be grateful!

(if not, i'm filling the kit under B1N and going back to ARM like everyone else ;-)

Try

Code: Select all

  <Links>
  <Link Encoding="2wire" Delays="4,4" Flags="SOD">
    <LinkEndpoint NodeId="0" Link="X0LC"/>
    <LinkEndpoint RoutingId="0x8000" Chanend="1"/>
  </Link>
  </Links>
Compile with -lxscope for 11.x and -fxscope for 12.x

And the Link should be C, not D for XK-1A

Flags="XSCOPE" is supported from 12.x, it used to be "SOD", but "SOD" still works for backwards compatibility

Ok, thanks for confirming those values!

(Is it worth updating to the latest XDE s/w level?)


So, now i compile ok, but nothing happens on screen in the real time scope view?

It shows the channel in a purple coloured box, but has "disconnected" in red in the top right hand side of the left pane?

Am i missing something else important?

Thanks !

Maybe you can give Offline Scope in run configurations a try.
It seems to work better here than the real-time scope.
Offline scope saves the trace to a file. You can import it in the Offline Scope window by clicking the folder icon.

I usually use the command-line tools only and capture it to a file and then use the Offline Scope in XDE for viewing.

Oh and you did not initialize the test variable in your code.

Ok, it's working now, but very flakey. I suspect my pc is having a bit of a moment tbh, because it seems to start, captures and works, but if you pause it, it doesn't restart. I will try the offline version, which tbh is probably more use to capture the data anyway,

Thanks for you help BTW! (always a bit of a struggle with first time users lol ;-)

Exactly the same thing.
I could see activity on IXUx-IXDx pins during RUN but XSCope stayed disconnected.
Under cmd I saw:

Code: Select all

But it does not stopind aftre 5 cycles. If I made Ctrl+C, I got:

Code: Select all

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
wait (ticks=500000) at ../src/LCD.xc:20
20          t when timerafter(ts+2*ticks) :> int _;
Outputting xscope file test.xmt
but no .xmt file occured.
Do I need to check "Run XScope output server" in RUN configuration? I tried it with no success.

May I ask how did you fix the error:
XN11156 A normal Link node may not contain a sod endpoint.
I encountered the same problem as yours. Thank you very much!
