Dragonboard410c+Seed 96Boards Sensors Arduino issue


#1

I’m using Dragonboard 410c and trying to follow the instruction; the program with c++ demo is working fine, but the one with Arduino can’t working…It shows can’t find Arduino connection. My console as followed:

It sounds like the Arduino bootloader installed on the AVR might be missing or corrupt.

This is recoverable using the ISP socket (P6) but would requires extra hardware. Do you own an AVR programmer or a standalone Arduino?


#3

I don’t have it… I tried two adapter boards, but the new one has same issue also…
Any instruction I can follow if I get the AVR programmer? Thanks.


#4

Unfortunately some were shipped without their bootloaders programmed (although if you’ve ordered recently it was supposed to have been fixed).

Anyhow…

Once you have a programmer hooked up they can be fixed very easily from the Arduino IDE itself. Sparkfun has a fairly comprehensive guide:

https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/installing-an-arduino-bootloader


#5

I’ll receive my programmer today. Hope it would work… I appreciate your help.


#6

I got my AVR board, but it can’t be detect by windows 10. I tried to used unsigned signature to install the driver again; although it looks detected, I stall can’t upload new bootloader…


#7

If you can’t get the programmer working on Win10 then you should be able to plug the programmer into the DB410C and used the Arduino GUI on the Dragonboard itself.

What programmer did you buy?


#8

This is the board I got…( https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/installing-an-arduino-bootloader ) It has problem to get COM port# successfully…Although I install the via unsigned signature, it became like following pic under computer management.


#9

@wayneyang2286,
Hello, as I can see your ISP programmer is not installed completely. It says “Unknown device”.
Could it be that the installation of the drivers did not succeeded?
Here as an example (but I can be wrong check what device you ordered) of a page where you can find the “windows drivers” https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9825.

I use Windows 10 with a AVR Programmer attached on pin P6 of the mezzanine and have no problems.
In your situation I would try to reload the drivers.
You should see “libusb-win32 devices” and see the device name. Do not need to attach the mezzanine at that point.
Then, once done I use “Sketch”, “Upload Using Programmer”…


#10

Hey Wayne, I’m a bit puzzled but exactly which programmer you got (the link you posted it to a tutorial and has pictures or more than one type of programmer).

Either way, if Jean-Marc guessed right and you got the Sparkfun Pocket AVR programmer you also need to make sure you select the right type of programmer in the Arduino IDE (should be USBtinyISP but your earlier screenshots show something different).


#11

@danielt
Sorry for confusing… This is the one I got. (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9825)
I tried from AVR ISP to USBtinyISP…BTW…is there any difference with Board types?
Or the only part I have to select is “Programmer: USBtinylSP” and click “Burn Bootloader”?

@jmjobin
I use the same driver, and install under unsigned signature mode. After I install the driver, the device turn from quotation mark to the one I showed in picture. Would you please share me the device list you have? Also, do I need to select comport, or just select USBtinyISP and burn bootloader?


#12

Finally, I burn the firmware via ubuntu as followed:

@wayneyang2286
For my part. I am using a device compatible to yours and use the USBtinyISP drivers as well as you and according to me we are on the right track.

But: For me it shows the “USBtiny” as a device in the Windows Device manager not as “Unknown Device #1” as yours.

I do not select the port since I program directly from my PC, select “Sketch”, “Upload Using Programmer”.
I am using Android so I am not programming from the DragonB.

If selecting “Tools” you have to select the right device as USBtinyISP as mentionned Daniel.
And from “Tools” yes you need too select the comport.
I never had to program the bootloader… so for the rest I let you in Daniel’s hands :slight_smile:


#14

@wayneyang2286
BTW: Try to follow this, on the example the hardware is older as ours but this works for our usbTinyISP.

#15

I don’t think this command programs the bootloader. It will erases the chip and rewrite the fuses but it does not write anything to the device! That is done with the second command (the one that includes the .hex) file.

I suggest that the most “robust” [i.e. hardest to get wrong :wink: and easiest to support if it doesn’t work] way to reprogram the bootloader should be something like:

  1. Disconnect the sensor board from the DB410C
  2. Plug the programmer into the DB410C USB port and into the ISP socket on the sensor board (set the programmer up to power the sensor board).
  3. Run the Arduino IDE on DB410C.
  4. Set the board to “Arduino Uno”
  5. Set the programmer to “USBtiny” (might be “USBtinyISP”, I’m don’t have my DB410C booted whilst I type this).
  6. Select “Burn bootloader”
  7. Turn everything off, reassemble and try again.

Obviously if you don’t have a display device attached to your DB410C you won’t be able to do this and will have to adapt the instruction for running the Arduino IDE running on Ubuntu instead.


#16

@jmjobin
I really appreciate your experience…I’m able to load Arduino firmware successfully via programmer, but setting of examples are using “/dev/tty96B0”. There might have some issue I have to figure out :frowning:


#17

@wayneyang2286
Great!! good work… but for the DragonBoard and Linux maybe some other Linux guru like Daniel, Lawrence King (the DragonBoard creator) as well as Robert Wolff are surely more indicated to help you I am exclusively using Android for now :slight_smile:
Why don’t you show up at 96BoardOpenHours http://www.96boards.org/openhours/ and ask some questions :slight_smile: these guys are often there at the session…
Have fun.

#18

@danielt
I tried your way to use DB410C to program the sensor board; however, it still not working. The result as followed:



Currently, I only can play arduino and Linux separately…


#19

Thanks for the clear photos. They were a big help. What is happening is that the user you are running as (linaro) doesn’t have permission to read/write to the USBTiny.

This can be fixed by running the following command in a terminal (note that this is all one line, if there is a line break when you see it your web browser has put it there):
echo ‘SUBSYSTEM==“usb”, ATTR{idVendor}==“1781”, ATTR{idProduct}==“0c9f”, MODE=“0660”, GROUP=“dialout”’ | sudo dd of=/etc/udev/rules.d/99-usbtinyisp.rules

The effect of this command is that the hotplug manager (udev) will now recognise the USBTiny (1781:0c9f), give the device read/write permissions for the owning group (0660) and put it in the “dialout” group (of which the “linaro” user is a member) whenever it is plugged in.

Having run this command, you should be able to disconnect and reconnect the programmer from the DB410C and the problem should to be fixed.

Good luck!


#20

@danielt
Here’s the result I tried…Anything incorrect?
