Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

Scratch that last one, I decided to remote in to my home computer and try IE having thought about the browser being the culprit and I now know it is a CHROME issue. I tried using incognito mode and still won't connect, but I switched to IE and it loaded right up. I suspect chrome is trying to load u...

Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

I will poke on this more this weekend, but I did a fresh burn of the same pi-star download and still can't get the GUI to load even with the pristine image. I can ssh in without any issues at all, so I am suspecting it is an issue with CHROME but I haven't yet dug into it enough to fully establish t...

Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

Thanks for the quick replies and knowledgable insights, I appreciate you saving me going down the dead ends. I have a dual channel scope that I am doing most of the debugging work with. Can you tell me what the interrogation packet is thst is sent to the stm chip? I can loop it back into the native ...

Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

Working on the board tonight I think I have made a few discoveries that will lead me forward. for reference, I am using a design derivative of this one, version 3 http://repeater-builder.com/products/stm32-dvm.html 1, per this document, http://www.repeater-builder.com/products/pdfs/Upgrade_STM32_DVM...

Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

I can use typical serial tools/commands to setup the port so that part should be simple enough, I think its 9600 8n1 by default. I may have an issue with the 115200 due to clock selection (higher than ideal error rates), but that will be addressed in the next version of the board. Is there a way to ...

Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

Hmm, it definitely is the right driver for my hardware as I am talking to my gps unit through it on port ttySC1. Thry disappear when i remove the overlay. Perhaps the SCx is assigned for any expansion uarts? Not sure why the 3B+ would enumerate that way otherwise, or what chip would be doing it that...

Re: (RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

I think I over explained it. The pi talks i2c to the chip I have added. This part is all good, the I2c device driver loads properly and creates 2 new uart devices in the system, specifically /dev/ttySC0 and /dev/ttySC1. Again this part is fully tested and working. I now need the mmdvm software to us...

(RPI) Changing the tty to an external device and validating functionality

Greetings Gurus, I have designed up my own board to integrate several pieces of hardware, and I am wanting to leave the native UARTs on the rpi available for other expansions, hats, etc. In this train of thought, I elected to add in an I2C to dual uart (SC16IS752) which is shared with my GPS unit. T...
