Hi,
New Firmware has been released, 1.03 beta. During next days the final version of 1.2 will be released. This version is only to cover requests for many customers that need more current and PICo interface
It can be downloaded from the

Please make sure to do @factory before using it.

Changes are described on the separate file zipped with the .hex one.

PLEASE USE THIS FIRMWARE ONLY WHEN DO YOU NOT NEED THE RTC. A BUG HAS BEEN INDICATED AND WILL BE CORRECTED SOON. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING

Hello,

I've applied the provided FW on my UPiS advanced and since the update I dont see the I2C interfaces from Pi. I've done @factory, I've the FW 1.03 running
Code: Select all
----------------------
www.pimodules.com
UPiS Advanced
Firmware Version:1.03 beta
Hardware Release:VCO2
----------------------

Factory Defaults

Erasing UPiS EEPROM
Factory Setup Year:2000
Factory Setup Month:01
Factory Setup Dow:01
Factory Setup Day:01
Factory Powering Info Triger: ON
Factory Low Power Restart Time: 5 Seconds
Raspberry Pi timed shutdown is inactive
Raspberry Pi timed start-up is inactive
Real Time Clock Correction Factor set to 0 Seconds
UPiS Intelligen Automatic Battery Charger - Activated

UPiS GPIO_GEN3 defined as 1-wire

Writting data to UPiS EEPROM
Data written to UPiS EEPROM


And running i2cdetect gives me this output:
Code: Select all
root@xxx:/root# i2cdetect -y 1
     0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f
00:          -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
10: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
20: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
30: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
40: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
50: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
60: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
70: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --


I've not changed anything else my my HW design, only did the FW upgrade. HW clock worked just fine, I dont see the RTC anymore.

Any idea? Thanks

Hi, Hmm Very interesting. Give me one day to think little bit until tomorrow. We have tested it on many devices and it was working very well. Any how give me time until tomorrow evening to check it. It is embedded software, so may be a bug is some ware. Would you like to be a beta tester for a short time, so I will send you new versions of firmware directly to you, that release them on the forum ? Until we solve it.
Please confirm

Programming of the I2C with masking is very timing critical, so I expect that a small timing need to be changed.

I just put it on my RPi, and test it and is working. So, that means timing is critical, and need to be increased (make slower)

See the picture

Plebe send your e-mail to info@pimodules.com and we will check 2-3 version with changed timer value.

Hi,

I check it, and you are right. Something changed in the mean time from the version we tested and released. But now is late. My colleague working on it will be tomorrow on then we will check what is wrong and release new corrected version. But we will need time until evening.

Warmest regards

Hi,
The new (working) version is on the way. Will be released very soon - finally for public. We just making more tests in order to avoid same scenario like last time, where one of our colleagues used old library for the final compiling of the firmware.
