[09:04:17] <jepler> yay, it didn't take much work to reconstitute my hostmot2-firmware building environment
[09:04:36] <jepler> hm
[09:04:36] <jepler> INFO:Security:54 - 'xc3s400' is a WebPack part.
[09:04:36] <jepler> WARNING:Security:42 - Your software subscription period has lapsed. Your current
[09:04:40] <jepler> version of Xilinx tools will continue to function, but you no longer qualify for
[09:04:43] <jepler> Xilinx software updates or new releases.
[09:16:30] <pcw_home> Ha! there are no updates to any webpack version (you are supposed to be using Vivado which naturally only supports SP6 and newer)
[09:24:18] <jepler> I won't sweat it then
[09:58:53] <jepler> PCW: in your workflow, how do you produce the .PIN files?
[10:00:05] <pcw_home> I do it from the hardware, for example mesaflash can make .pin files
[10:02:04] <pcw_home> mesaflash will make pncconf xml files also
[10:02:05] <pcw_home> one very unfortunate thing is that there is no canonical pin /module
[10:02:07] <pcw_home> name source file so mesaflash /pncconf differ on names
[10:02:39] <jepler> I thought that is what you did
[10:02:41] <jepler> it's inconvenient
[10:03:53] <pcw_home> its convenient if you want the pinout of what you have
[10:04:43] <pcw_home> its certainly inconvenient if you want to distribute .pin/.xml files
[10:06:01] <jepler> in hostmot2-firmware I had developed a way to build the pin .vhd file + some supporting files into a native executable which can be run to print the "pin file"
[10:06:07] <jepler> but that uses a vhdl compiler that is not in debian anymore
[10:21:10] <jepler> .. but yay, once again I've succeeded in flogging the old one along
[10:40:07] <pcw_home> Is it updated so it can build the current source?
[12:06:08] <jepler> looks like the last time we tried updating the vhdl source was in 2014
[12:08:05] <jepler> I recall that I got sidetracked by wanting to build the embedded processors' own firmwares, and let the perfect be the enemy of the good...
[12:09:38] <jepler> I was messing with it today because Seb wanted a firmware for 7i47-400 + one 7i54 and we thought there wasn't one
[12:14:32] <pcw_home> yeah the firmware for the embedded processors is not likely to change often, I think the last thing I did was make the
[12:14:34] <pcw_home> resolver firmware work with a100 MHz clock low so it would work on Ethernet cards
[12:16:51] <seb_kuzminsky> we're building firmware for the 7i43-400, to talk to the 7i54 (6x100W servo amp)
[12:16:56] <seb_kuzminsky> seems to be working now
[12:17:15] <pcw_home> I should add broadcast ping/UDP support to the Ethernet firmware (theres even a reserved place in the EEPROM for the netmask)
[12:17:17] <pcw_home> but I have been too busy to get t it
[12:17:46] <pcw_home> I think the 7I54 is a just 7I48 pinout wise
[12:18:01] <seb_kuzminsky> i think so too
[12:40:43] <jepler> PCW: we just ran into a problem with the alias code...
[12:40:48] <jepler> IOPortTag & x"00" & PWMTag & PWMCEnaPin, -- I/O 00 7I48 pinout
[12:40:54] <jepler> IOPortTag & x"00" & PWMTag & PWMCEnaPin, -- I/O 23
[12:41:12] <jepler> because two GPIOs have the same unit/function/pin, they get the same computed name for the alias
[12:41:22] <jepler> creating the second alias fails, and linuxcnc doesn't start
[12:41:42] <pcw_home> Forgot about that (common enables)
[12:43:19] <jepler> do you have any bright ideas about how linuxcnc should handle this?
[12:43:48] <jepler> right now our best brainstormed idea is to call the firmware broken and create no aliases about the second GPIO
[12:44:52] <pcw_home> Yeah thats one way, but sometimes is doe make sense to drive multiple pins from one source
[12:44:57] <jepler> I agree
[12:44:59] <pcw_home> does
[12:45:43] <jepler> if you don't want to call all such firmwares broken then we'd need to do something else
[12:45:51] <jepler> in linuxcnc
[12:47:00] <jepler> add an additional .#. in the case where there's more than one pin driven from the same source
[12:47:35] <jepler> (for example)
[12:48:56] <pcw_home> Or do all the alias based GPIO munging with 32 bit masks so setting pwm0.ena.io-options set all pins at once
[12:49:48] <jepler> :-/
[12:50:25] <pcw_home> since you are unlikely to need to change the I/O options of these pins, a name collision avoidance trick seems fine
[12:50:49] <jepler> I'll look at implementing that
[12:53:48] <seb_kuzminsky> pcw_home: 7i48 and 7i54 have the same interface (as seen from the fpga), right?
[12:54:09] <seb_kuzminsky> so whatever we do for 7i48 we should also do for the 7i54 firmwares that we're adding
[12:59:35] <pcw_home> yeah (well theres really no difference in 7I48 and 7I54 firmware 6 muxed encoders, 6 pwm/dir pairs and 2 enables = 24 pins )
[13:24:26] <jepler> hm2_5i20.0.pwmgen.00.0.enable.invert_output hm2_5i20.0.gpio.000.invert_output
[13:24:29] <jepler> hm2_5i20.0.pwmgen.00.1.enable.invert_output hm2_5i20.0.gpio.023.invert_output
[13:24:41] <jepler> so basically I propose that you would get this where there are duplicates
[13:24:52] <jepler> and no change where there are not duplicates
[13:24:53] <jepler> hm2_5i20.0.encoder.00.sel0.invert_output hm2_5i20.0.gpio.010.invert_output

[13:31:27] <jepler> PCW, seb_kuzminsky: for your reviews
[13:39:44] <pcw_home> looks good to me (this will also show up what the are muxed encoders on multiple connectors so the are multiple select pins)
[13:39:59] <pcw_home> s/what/when/
[13:40:25] <pcw_home> s/the/there/
[13:41:59] <pcw_home> hmm 53.7 ms latency, not good to build kernels (or at least have the installer do modprobey stuff)
[13:42:01] <pcw_home> when running linuxcnc
[13:42:20] <jepler> eew
[13:43:18] <pcw_home> I've noticed this before, at the end when it installs drivers, things go bad
[13:43:42] <pcw_home> maybe poking at the network driver

[17:01:08] <skunkworks> interesting about the pitch. I wonder if he runs exact stop mode? wonder if he has any G64P... (segment blending)

[17:06:42] <pcw_home> Maybe daisy was tweaked to sound good with the old TP
[17:09:12] <skunkworks> funny if it found an odd TP issue :)
