Rookie

Thanks for the archives!!

Rookie

For those having trouble with ST-Link

The ST Link interface needs to be set to "SWD" ...

So on the project right click on the Project - "Name"

Choose Debugger -- make sure it Says STLink

Then Choose the Option for STLink underneath and make sure it is  et to "SWD"

Rookie

Thanks for the archives

Rookie

drw36 and nicholasfillon: Thanks for the response!

Will double check my steps, but I did copy main_step4.c to replace main.c and X'ed old main.c out in the build. Also added Cycle_Counter.c/.h but I will double check those too. So you guys did get entire Step 4 exercise to work with out the TimerCount_Start/Stop, I take it?

I must have missed something. Guess I will just have to have another go at it...

Rookie

@achen95132

The ST-Link/V2 is on the STM32F429 Discovery Board (32F429IDISCOVERY) used in this class, Can you post more details of the issue you are seeing.

Also see 'Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops' (PDF) above and here http://www.st.com/web/catalog/tools/FM116/SC959/SS1532/PF259090

At the beginning, I wasted a lot of time figuring out why ST-link is not working for me.

Finally, I realize it requires additional piece of hardware ST-Link/V2.

It would be nice to make it clear from the beginning of setup.

Rookie

@Alan, be sure to have selected the ST-LINK in your debug section of the option of the project under EAWRM, in the options of the project, go to Debugger, then select the tab download and make sure the "use flash loader" is checked

Rookie

@ajbieee: do not foget to copy: main_step4.c, Cycle_Counter.c, and Cycle_Counter.h into the FPU directory where you have the source files. and then add these files into your project under IAR EWARM, then exclude main.c from the build

Rookie

@Jose_Avila  Thanks for the reply.  I have tried that.  In fact the olnly place I can't get a break point is at main?  I just get a red circle and a ding.  Not a dot.  The toggles do the same thing.

Rookie

@ajbieee - Did you follow the steps from bullet 5 slide 20 through the exclude step on slide 21? Did you miss excluding main.c or forget to copy the .h file?

Rookie

Anyone else run into this error?

Error[Li005]: no definition for "TimerCount_Start" [referenced from C:\STM32Seminar\Projects\Peripheral_Examples\FPU_Example\EWARM\Debug\Obj\main_Step4.o]
Error[Li005]: no definition for "TimerCount_Stop" [referenced from C:\STM32Seminar\Projects\Peripheral_Examples\FPU_Example\EWARM\Debug\Obj\main_Step4.o]
Error while running Linker

(also at the end of Slide 21)

Rookie

At the bottom of slide 21 when I run download and debug I get fatal error. "Failed to load ftd2xx.dll Ensure that the TI Emulation package..."

All steps prior to this worked fine (e.g. looking at the code count differences between FPU/noFPU

Rookie

Also,  can the chat area have an option to add at the bottom?  Trying to read while new comments cause it to jump down is quite difficult.

Rookie

I also think the format of this presentation was a great idea.  I've been to several of these seminars throughout my career and this was the best because I didn't have to leave my office.  I hope ST, Digikey, EE Times and others will do more seminars in this format. 

Rookie

@steve61 just click to the left of the line number

Rookie

Sorry, late start.  Got to slide 21, everything look great, but won't let me set a break point.  Just get ding.  No error messag?

Hope someone is still there.

Steve

Rookie

Yeah...mine says 72 MHz too...

Rookie

@michaelcossen. You can find/edit the CPU clock by going to:

Project/options/ST-LINK. ST-LINK is the debugger used for this board.

See you tomorrow folks.

Rookie

Nothing at post office... maybe UPS?

Rookie

It looks like system_stm32f4xx.c defines the system clock speed and is set to 180 MHz.  I just saw a couple of references inside the IAR environment that indicated 72 MHz, which I believe is the F3 series max clock speed.

Rookie

Sorry for the delayed response.  I was looking around in the Options inside IAR Workbench.

Rookie

@michaelcosson: which file are you looking at? 

Rookie

I have just been poking around in IAR, and it appears that the STM32 is set to 72 MHz, instead of 180 MHz?  Is that right?  If so, how can we change the clock speed to 180 MHz?  Thanks.

Rookie

I just got an email from EETimes that UPS has a delivery confirmation for Monday at the office. I am going to have to talk to someone at the office about sharing information like that.

Thank you for the great session.

Rookie

I just wanted to mention that I, too, will need to get my STM32 [GCC?] toolchain+IDE (etc) up and working under Linux. And also under something not altogether foreign from a dev perspective, Mac OS. cc STMicroelectronics!

Rookie

Using a LogicPort logic analyzer:

FPU off, no opt: 14.36 us

FPU off, opt (max), removed SysTick calls: 12.46 us

FPU on, no opt: 9.16 us

FPU on, opt (max), removed SysTick calls: 7.61 us

Rookie

Will check the post office.

Clearly someone does not understand the Canadain mail system. :-(

 

Rookie

Canada (Mississauga) here. Finaly my board is here :)

It's Canada post.

6 december: item has left US.

9 december: item has arrived in Canada, Mississauga.

After that it took 3 days.

Rookie

Made it through the Simulator example (Step 3) and about ready to download the (Step 4). Just really need to be able to take your time and the slides will get you there as someone else just mentioned.

Guess I will finish up Step 4 here and stop for now as Step 5 needs me to fire up my scope anyway (now where did it put that thing :)

Rookie

Thanks   for teh LINE EDITORS !!   The issue that i see is the "getting redy from session 2 to Session3" -- IAR enviroment options, and setting such line numbers, and  features. After that Session 3-4-5 can be done. Knowing the Enviromnet help.  I know some folks here they are already using IAR so they know what to Click!!!

Rookie

Thank you all and see you tomorrow.

Rookie

I think this whole course concept with the hands-on hardware interaction is a GREAT idea — thanks Jacob, ST, Digi-Key, UBM, et al for making it possible! (and for being willing to try out this experiment in the first place)

Rookie

Okay I will look into that meanwhile I am using what ever is already in Chrome.

For now I will just use another machine to record the audio or even go to tape and then digitize it.

Thanks!!

Rookie

Thanks much!!  Love those line numbers :)

Rookie

Windows Em:Blocks IDE has the firmware examples of the peripheral library setup (link on their forum), and  debugs of ST-Link


ST should talk/pay them to port to linux and supply on a flash-drive for their seminars. Would save 45 minutes installing Gigabytes of IAR

Rookie

Tools -> options -> editor -> show line number

Rookie

 

geraldfryjr

I have read on another chat that realplayer will let you save the audio stream to your local machine. I haven't felt a need to try it myself.

Is there a way to enable line numbers in the source code window?

Rookie

@GaryS471: Are there some tools around to convert/import  an IAR or KEIL project to CoCoxx/Eclipse with GCC?

If oonly... their MDK importer is for Version 1 or something -- I could not get it to work.

Don't have my board yet -- will try then.

I usually move projects by hand into or out of IAR. It's not that tough -- but you have to learn IAR to understand what to do -- either way.

If you have the $$$ -- IAR is the Gold Standard. (In case you are in the 1% wh don't know.)

Rookie

It would be nice to be able to download the wave file of the presentation available so that it can be played localy without the use of the internet as some times it gets glitchy in my area even though it is highspeed.

 

Rookie

I also got  way far behind at the "Options" selection. It wasn't clear that a portion of the code needed to be highlighted first.  Also, I had trouble following at the bottom of slide 20 - I didn't know how to place the code into the 'working directory', and spent quite a bit of time trying to find that directory using WindowsExplorer, instead of just dragging&dropping the code into the source tree within IAR.

Rookie

Thanks again Jacob.  I see now that those of us with limited experience should listen to your lecture to note the main points, then step slowly through the archived material to gain an in-depth understanding of this system.

 

Rookie

Thanks EEtimes, Jacob, Rich, Digikey et. all. This is a really good way to introduce a new product and get into the hands of embedded designers. The only suggestion I could make is to help provide easier access to a free(open source) or low cost  toolchain with specific support for the family. This is important for us small guys who don't have a lot of time to tweak existing tools.

Rookie

@MELANGILLE you will need to use the 30-day eval version

Are there some tools around to convert/import  an IAR or KEIL project to CoCoxx/Eclipse with GCC?

Rookie

@Jacob_Beningo: btw, do you know why is it that you're so time-confined? (I'm familiar with the designnews series, so it's not new to me, but I never quite understood why quite so very limited, particularly as clarity of educational instruction seems like it would be the paramount consideration)

Rookie

Can the code size version of the IAR workbench be used or do you have to choose the 30 trial version?

Rookie

For tomorrows session the slides and examples are available for you to preview

Exactly!  We have 30 - 40 minutes so between the slides and the recording the hope is that everyone can follow along.  Worst case it's just followed up after the session.

Blogger

@alive

SO in assembly there are specific op codes that are used when the FPU is enabled versus emulated when not.  So unless you write in asembly, it will be hard for the C compiiler to do this.  There are specfic exceptions and ISR for the FPU, you can monitor those.  These are explained in the App note for the FPU at www.st.com/stm32f4.

Another update on reloading the demo program. I just reloaded it after this webinar session, and the day-of-week was only wrong on the first pass (showed Mon instead of Thurs). When I reran it, it correctly showed Thurs for 12 Dec 2013.  Cheers.

Rookie

I appreciate the fast pace. 

Also, the slides are complete enough that you can go through them successfully even without the audio.

Rookie

so, easily fixable, as I see it: I'd recommend either

  • assembling the customized project src bundle(s) ahead of time for each stage

  • else, if that's not possible at this point, write up and email to everyone this evening those parts of the instructions such that we may get that all prepped ahead of time

Rookie

Thanks - this is good info. 

My only suggestion would be to update slide 13 to add the trick to get the linker options to show up. 

Rookie

IAR has excellent videos and tutorials -- see the Information centre (Help menu)

and their web site.

I rember starting out with it -- I felt trully lost for a week or two. And I used to use Eclipse and Cygwin -- so go figger! ;-)

Rookie

Hi, If you need more information on our MCU offering please go to: http://www.st.com/web/en/catalog/mmc/FM141

Rookie

Is there any way to force some part of the code to run in the FPU instead of letting it be done automatically?  Howe can one check which part is running on the FPU?

 

Rookie

Ahh yea I'm using a i7 with 16 GB or RAM so the assumption that when I'm done compiling everyone else is is a bad assumption.  Thanks for mentioning this as I will keep it in mind next time!

Blogger

Thanks. Would have been helpful to see a live screen as Jacob was going through the steps making it easier to follow what was going on.  Can't wait to get the kit for some hands on.

Rookie

Due to time I had to go a little fast but ....... please listen to the recorded session and pause as needed!  

Blogger

Thanks, good presentation- a bit faster than my machine for compile/etc. so I was always way behind, but I was able to keep track and get it done.

Rookie

@mike_impossible

check out www.st.com/stm32f4, app note for FPU.  There is a full dsp library also in our standard F4 library.  This is form arm.  Check out www.arm.com, the docs are there on how to use the DSP library in our standard library.

 

Thanks for the presentation. I look forward to working through these projects when the board arrives.  I can sympathize with those who are truely new to the discipline and offer the advice to work the projects on this and other processors so that it becomes familiar. I have been using these devices for decades and could follow even though I never used this family of processors.

Cool! thx. it's working now! 1569 cycles :)

Rookie

Great session! I had a little trouble keeping up, but I got the gist of it. Having a functional board really "brings it home". Thanks Jacob and ST!

Rookie

One of the exiciting things about this course is that it is a hands-on course online!  I think this is the first time many of us have tried something like this so expect it to only get better in the future!

Blogger

Good session. Limited time, so it has to be quite dense. Lots of example projects to explore. Written instructions very clear. As an non-US, non-Canadian, non-first-1000 viewer, I'm impressed with this very cheap, very powerful MCU board. Ordered it from RS Online. Got it next day.

Many thanks.

 

Rookie

@jxsb  Yes, IAR can execute code in simulator mode without the need for target board.

re things moving too quickly for us to follow along—I have to reluctantly agree; but I think really, it's the misc shell etc activities (eg locating files in a *different* FS subtree) are really what the problems stem from—I must confess, I'm the last person to be imagined in this situation (everything prior was way too slow for me) (and also, I went and followed through the first few exercises in the slides last night)

Rookie

CooCox forum notes lik for this board:

http://www.coocox.org/forum/topic.php?id=3714

Not perfect -- but it is free.

Rookie

Thank you. It was interesting lecture. Audio was good but no board.

Rookie
Shame my board I ordered here in the UK did not arrive. Anyway, following it ok. Thanks for the presentations.
Rookie

Thanks to EETimes and Rich, Jacob, STM, ...  Looking forwwrd to the graphics presentation.

Rookie

I HAVE TWO STATION, ONE JUST TO SEE  THE CHAT WINDOW AND SLICE, THE OTHER JUST FOR THE DEVELOPMENT, AND STILL I GOT LOST,  A VIDEO STREAMING WILL HELP SINCE WE FOLLOW, IT  IS  SO SIMPLE TO CREATE ONE, GO TO JUSTINTV, USTREAM, OPEN A CHANNEL, AND UPLOAD WEBCAST ... THEY HAVE ALL THE BANDWITH

Rookie

Thanks, informative session.

Rookie

Thanks Jacob, once the audio had an opportunity to cache it worked fine, even if I was running about 4 minutes behind everyone else judging by the chats.  SysTick worked fine, will do the IAR sim now and be back for the graphics tomorrow.

Rookie

** To all who've commented on Audio only. We do appreciate the feedback. This was a first for all of us and we'll learn from the experience. **

 

 

Rookie

Thanks,  I had some issues with IAR workbench due to pre existing installs, but other than that all has been good.

Rookie

Thank you everyone another informative lecture.

@Garys47a

The GNU stuff does seem to lag the new parts.  The F429 out a couple months.  Assume it will be there shortly

Thanks and you are welcome!

Blogger

@e7, please verify that you have the flash loader enabled. open project options->Debugger-Download

make sure that use flash loader check box is checked. 

Working my way through the slides now...just takes a little time and if you miss something like making sure that the root of the tree is highlighted it really slows you down ;)

Rookie

I would think if speed and power are an issue floating point should be avoided if not necessary?

Rookie

this is very good seminar. Nice going.

Rookie

COOCOX can support this chip. See the notes in the FORUM at their site, It is not straightfoward yet -- it can be made to work.

Rookie

@rwilliams, you are correct, it is a global

Rookie

Thank you Rich, EETimes, ST and Digi-Key

Rookie

are there docs available to learn more about using the DSP?

@craig429

FPU does use more power.  There are also exceptions that need to be handled.  The Push/Pop are longer in/out of ISR.  Other than that, it's there use it.

Thanks Jacob & ST. it is certainly a challenge to do a lab session with audio ony..

Rookie

Haven't tried with optimizations on!  It would be interesting to see but results will vary from compiler to compiler

Blogger

Session was very informative..thanks Jacob

Rookie

CoCoxx - Does not yet support F429

 

Rookie

Thank you Jacob and EETimes.

Rookie

Thank you, Jacob, ST, and EETimes, the presentation was excellent.

?How is the code dvided into the part that goes into the FPU and the part that is not?

 

Rookie

FPU could use more power  vs. more CPU instructions

 

Rookie

Jacob, another informative session ... Thanks !

 

Rookie

Thanks.  A lot to digest, but really good stuff

Rookie

Have you done the comparison of FPU vs library with optimizations on

Rookie

Thanks for your time and attention everyone!  How are the labs going so far?

Blogger

I can't go into debug mode:

Verify error at address 0x080001A8, target byte: 0x01, byte in file: 0x21

Rookie

fixed point vs. floating point   less costly s/w development and test

 

Rookie

Really need to have live video to follow effectively.  

Rookie

Can the IAR simulator execute the STM32F4 project code without requiring a target board?

Rookie

Thanks Jacob and EE Times.

Rookie

I agree with all that are struggling to keep up.  Lost you at hand on activity slide 13

 

Good presentation. Thanks.

Rookie

Thank you Guys, fun stuff

 

Rookie

COOCOX is a free IDE -- see my notes in lecture ONE

Rookie

@theokowd

The F429 has hardware Floating Point Unit which does IEE floating point.

IAR is IDE tool

Systick as a 24 bit time in the Cortex M4F core running at core frequency

Very Cool Stuff!!

Thank you Jacob!!

Rookie

Is there any reason when to not use the FPU?

 

Rookie

great presentation, many thanks!

Rookie

I was late, but you are great anyway.

Rookie

Thank you.  I can breath now.

Rookie

looking forward to the graphics labs. thanx

Rookie

 

** Thanks for attending. We're here to take your questions. **

See you tomorrow!!

 

Rookie

Can you name some examples of where the floating point math would be used versus finite point math in embedded systems?

 

Rookie

What about a free IDE for these nice devices

 

Rookie

Those having trouble

Work the labs in advance

 

Rookie

Awesome presentation. Thanks!

 

Rookie

Why does TimerCount_Stop pass nb_cycles as a parameter? It isn't needed.

STILL !!!!!!   THESE ONLINE ARE GOOD IF THERE SI A VIDEO STREAMING!!!  SO TAHT WE KNOW WHAT IN THE WORLD THE PRESENTER IS CLICKING .... AUDIO IS NOT SUFFICIENT WHEN DEALING  WEBCAST. SPECIALLY SETTING UP AND WORKING WITH EXAMPLES.

Rookie

What is the meaning of FPU, IAR, SysTick ? More time is required. Time is too short for the content is very complex.

Theo

Rookie

@wilfredo.henriquez the archive will be available to follow along long later

BETTER A VIDEO --- STREAMING SO TAHT WE FOLLOW AT LEAST

Rookie

JAJJAJAJ ---- For these online, we need more time --imposible to follow !!!!  ONLINE LABS SHOULD BE 2 HOURS AND SLOW

Rookie

@drw36 In debug: View -> Auto

Rookie

LOST now. where is AUTO?

 

Rookie

You cant display until you run debug

Rookie

Any time I open one of these workspaces, the IAR workspace is totally gray and menu options are not working.  the application also crashes frequently.  Should I reinstall IAR?  

Bottom line: 37-40% performance improvement in using the FPU hardware

Rookie

Enable the EWARM Simulator
– Project ? Options ? Debugger ?Setup ? Simulator.

Rookie

@drw36

ALT F7-->Debugger-->Driver pull down, select Simulator not STLINK

Guess this will have to be an 'off-line' activity to compare the software/hardware that is summarized on Slide 27...

Rookie

I'm having to type fast to keep up

Rookie

I don't see a simulator to choose. list empty.

Rookie

@Atchi

There is a Generate Linker map file checkbox in Linker->List tab

@ajbieee, good news, let us know if you have other issues

Rookie

Yeah...finally found the Linker...

Rookie

To be able to open the the project option you need first to highlight the project: FPU - Debug then right click on it and go to options

Rookie

@jjulian274

Make sure the FPU project is the active one

@jjulian274 - be sure to highlight the project name in the tree first.

Rookie

I CAN NOT GET  THE OPTIONS  FROM BEEN GREAY OUT ...  PROJECT OPTIONS ---

Rookie

– Project ? Options? Linker ? List ? 'Generate Linker map file

I dont see linker in options..!!!

 

Rookie

Which memory size is RAM and Flash?

My project->options has none of these fields.

Rookie

@Mike.haley, try disabling the READ attributes for the folder

 

@rob_young

Alt +F7 to open project options,

Linker->List->Generate Linker map file.

be sure open the right project: C:\STM32Seminar\projects\Peripheral_Examples\FPU_Example\EWARM\FPU.eww

 

Rookie

Yeah...no Linker on Project -> Options either

Rookie

Need help getting linker option

 

Rookie

IAR, Windoes gives me errors that it can't find "C:\STM32Seminar\projects\Peripheral_Example s\FPU_Example\EWARM\FPU.eww" even though the files are there and I can see them in Windows explorer.

Rookie

he lost me - how do I get to the Linker options?

Rookie

@wilfredo: I see wnhat you are missing: we wrote a section on this in the user manual, please go to Help -> Help Content, then go to the section 4.8 Code configuration and generation page 29

Rookie

audio perfect in FireFox

Rookie

Audio keeps dropping and I have to restart the stream

Rookie

GNU Octave link:

http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/

With apologies to any MatLab reps listening in...

Rookie

@nicolasfillion  I got  that what is missing the steps are how you used on the project, one example step by step is what is messing from session 3....

Rookie

Audio keeps dropping for me and I have to restart the stream, never had any issues before, but I may just have to wait for the archive to post at the end of the session today

Rookie

For those who cannot afford MatLab there is always GNU Octave to help with the math like IIR filters etc.

I use it on Linux and Windows.

Rookie

Did not receive the board yet and no audio...

I will evaluate it at home when the board arrive.

Thank's

Robert Lessard, Saint-Eustache (cold here to !)

Rookie

@wilfredo, the MicroXplorer is going to generate 3 files that will configure the GPIOs of your application: 

src

mx_gpio.c

mx_main.c

inc

mx_gpio.h

 

the idea is to add these files into your project and add them to the project files.

 

And call the mx_pinout_config(); function at the beginning of your main function.

Rookie

Audio- widget appeared for me after refreshing ctrl-f5

No audio again.  Didn't have any yesterday either.

Rookie

Not yet! however I am geting exposure and will later in time follow up on the course. Being able to referance the achieve and course material is perfect for delayed  comuniations situations.

what do you do with the Source Code of teh configuration
and where do you place this configuartion on a new Project.
It is graet that we can configure all the Pins to avoid issues
in multiple funtions pins, but where and how do we use these files

Rookie

Good Morniing.  Can't wait for some hands on.

Rookie

Kinda expecting that this DSP demo will take that FPU up to 100% utilization today...

Rookie

I'm enjoying them too!

Rookie

@lowfreq:  First get the COOCOX tool chanin and try that -- it will provide some answers -- assuming you are using windows.

I have used the ARM tool chain (Launchpad) and eclipse for the editor successfully -- but I used Cygwin for the compiles due to the makefiles only running correctly under cygwin (or mingw).

I left some info on the first days nortes re coocox. with links.

 

Rookie

Hello,  Really enjoying these and the board.

Rookie

Hi from Birmingham!

Hello everyone!  Looking forward to the 4th installment in this lecture series :)

Rookie

hi all, still no board delivered =(

Rookie

Devad, Sorry you having issue, just installed on Win7, STLINK driver comes up under OTHER devices, had to uninstall, and manually install, took care ofthe problem.  Check out the help slides, there are specific instructions.

I am very new to putting together toolchains. I have used IAR  before and that is

up and running. I have tried to get Eclipse to play nice with Code Sourcery Lite following a couple of prior online blog post. No joy yet. I am hoping that someone more knowledgeable will post a setup for freeware C/C+   toolchain with support for stm32f4xx soon.

Hello every one from Jackson Michigan!!

This is the part that I have been waiting for...DSP's !!!

Hmmm...now that I updated the time, the rebuilt demo program correctly shows the day as a Thursday.  Weird.  So it was only intially the day of week was wrong???

Rookie

fredrik, the Outlook calendar item that gets sent puts the reminder setting at "none" so it won't sound a bell or anything unless you change that setting in your calendar. At least that's how it has been working for me.

Staff

@rodney0 are you following the instructions in 'Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF)' - see link above the chat window

I confirm what @DPC1E said for the rebuilt demo program -- the calendar for today (12 Dec 2013) INCORRECTLY shows as Monday.  I also noticed the icons were a little different.  Can we get one without the bug?

Thanks Jacob and the sponsors for a great course.

Per an earlier post yesterday I rebuilt and loaded the initial demo program.

It is a bit different from the one delivered with the board.  The icons for the

clock and game are different and there is a bug in the calander in this version.

It shows Thursday, 12 December 2013 as a Monday.  Where can I download

the project delivered with the board?
