tbehaghel, kelly: when you ran the extest, there was no sensor present, yes?
09:59
kelly
exactly, no sensor presents

Bertl_oO
tx
16:11
Bertl_oO
well, looks all good so far
16:11
Bertl_oO
the current stack ends at the interface board or at the sensor board?
16:12
Bertl_oO
i.e. did you remove just the sensor or the entire Sensor Frontend?
16:12
kelly
On the sensor board
16:12
kelly
(we remove the sensor only)

Bertl_oO
okay, good, please add then sensor now (don't forget to power down the Beta first)
16:15
kelly
ok
16:17
Bertl_oO
now lets do the following commands and upload the output:
16:17
Bertl_oO
./fclk_init.sh
16:17
Bertl_oO
./power_init.sh
16:17
Bertl_oO
./gpio.py init

16:20
kelly
https://pastebin.com/myUhWGX5
16:23
Bertl_oO
now do:
16:23
Bertl_oO
cat cmv_hdmi3.bit >/dev/xdevcfg
16:24
Bertl_oO
./cmv_init.sh
16:24
Bertl_oO
what's the output you get?
16:24
kelly
0x00000000
16:25
Bertl_oO
hmm, that's bad ... means that the sensor is still not responding to SPI
16:25
Bertl_oO
can you redo the ./pac1720_info.sh and pastebin please?
16:26
kelly
https://pastebin.com/NW7NbYwp
16:28
Bertl_oO
hmm, the N_VN voltage drops unexpectedly
16:28
Bertl_oO
it should stay above 1.8V at all times, but it seems to be fine without sensor
16:29
Bertl_oO
and it was fine on the initial test with ~562mA
16:29
kelly
yes indeed...
16:30
Bertl_oO
now we are at 777mA and it is already down to 1.68
16:30
Bertl_oO
I checked the reported voltages from last time, there it even went below 1.5V
16:30
Bertl_oO
what power supply do you use for the Beta?
16:31
kelly
the power supply that came with the package YU0506
16:31
illwieckz
joined the channel
16:31
Bertl_oO
okay, do you have another 5V 5A+ power supply at hand which you could connect to the barrel connector on the tiny power adapter board?
16:32
Bertl_oO
(just to rule out it's a power supply issue)
16:33
kelly
I'm gonna try to find that
16:34
Bertl_oO
if you are at it, it might be good to find a scope to explicitely test the SPI interface pins
16:39
kelly
we don't have this kind of power supply here
16:40
Bertl_oO
okay, no problem ...
16:40
Bertl_oO
let's do one more test regarding SPI then
16:40
Bertl_oO
unplug and replug the Beta, boot it and do the following sequence
16:40
kelly
ok
16:42
Bertl_oO
./fclk_init.sh
16:42
Bertl_oO
./power_init.sh
16:42
Bertl_oO
./gpio.py init
16:42
Bertl_oO
./power_on.sh
16:42
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:42
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:42
Bertl_oO
cat cmv_hdmi3.bit >/dev/xdevcfg
16:42
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:42
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:43
Bertl_oO
cmv_reg 90 0x5555
16:43
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:43
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:43
Bertl_oO
cmv_reg 91 0x5555
16:43
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:43
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:44
Bertl_oO
cmv_reg 92 0x5555
16:44
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:44
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:44
Bertl_oO
cmv_reg 93 0x5555
16:44
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:44
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:44
Bertl_oO
(and pastebin the output, tx)

Bertl_oO
so there is definitely a problem with the N_VN regulator, it keeps dipping down
16:47
Bertl_oO
but it seems SPI is working towards the sensor but not the reply path
16:48
Bertl_oO
let's check that once again with:
16:48
Bertl_oO
for a in {90..94}; do cmv_reg $a 0; done
16:48
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:49
Bertl_oO
the N_VN load should drop down below 100mA
16:49
Bertl_oO
(if the sensor SPI interface receives the commands, that is)
16:50
kelly
https://pastebin.com/NRWAQxx3
16:51
Bertl_oO
hmm, you didn't reset or reboot the Beta, yes
16:51
kelly
could it comes from a bad contact between the sensor and the board ?
16:52
kelly
we did
16:52
kelly
the reset
16:52
Bertl_oO
ah, okay, then let's try that one again:
16:52
Bertl_oO
./fclk_init.sh
16:52
Bertl_oO
./power_init.sh
16:52
Bertl_oO
./gpio.py init
16:52
Bertl_oO
./power_on.sh
16:52
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:52
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:53
Bertl_oO
cat cmv_hdmi3.bit >/dev/xdevcfg
16:53
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:53
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:53
Bertl_oO
for a in {90..94}; do cmv_reg $a 0; done
16:53
Bertl_oO
sleep 5
16:53
Bertl_oO
./pac1720_info.sh
16:53
Bertl_oO
(and pastebin)
16:54
Bertl_oO
and yes, the SPI issue can easily come from a bad contact anywhere in the stack
16:54
Bertl_oO
the power rail issue with N_VN worries me more though
16:55
kelly
https://pastebin.com/NkuAnuzP
16:55
Bertl_oO
okay, so no, the SPI is not working and the N_VN is now down to 1.2V
16:55
Bertl_oO
seems like a component there is dying
16:56
Bertl_oO
for the next few tests you need three things:
16:56
Bertl_oO
- a stable power supply (benchtop power supply) you can use to power the Beta
16:57
kelly
ok
16:57
Bertl_oO
- a reasonably good multimeter (5+ digits preferably)
16:57
kelly
ok
16:57
Bertl_oO
- a non conducting philips screwdriver (i.e. ceramic or plastic not metal)
16:58
Bertl_oO
the power supply needs to be attached to the Beta, either directly or via the power adapter board (barrel connector)
16:58
illwieckz
joined the channel
16:59
Bertl_oO
the multimeter needs to have 2.54mm header pins to plug into the power board (some adapter cable is perfectly fine)
17:00
Bertl_oO
the screw driver needs to fit the tiny trimmer on the power board (there are eight of them, four on each side)
17:00
Bertl_oO
you disassemble the stack down to the power board, i.e. all we need for this is the MicroZed and the Power Board
17:00
BAndiT1983
joined the channel
17:01
Bertl_oO
connected together, both powered from the Power Board connector (dual 5V 2.5A or single 5V 5A+)
17:01
Bertl_oO
I'll be back later ...
17:02
kelly
(Just before we step into the tests, we bought the sensor directly to CMOSIS (AMS) , just to check that there is no problem of compatibility, the reference is : 2E5C1PA)
17:02
Bertl_oO
that's fine
17:03
Bertl_oO
of course, the sensor might be defective, but I wouldn't jump to that conclusion yet
