Software / Re: Webbotlib Studio FBoot only works the first time!
« Last post by Hero I on October 09, 2014, 08:39:05 AM »
In the Webbotlib Studio FBoot window there are two check boxes. One labeled "Program" and the other labeled "Verify." The window pops up with both set on by default.

I decided to test by setting and unsetting these check boxes to see what results I would get. Here are some of the results...

Attempt Program Verify Result 
------- ------- ------ ------
   1      on     on      OK
   2      off    on      OK
   3      on     off     fail
   4      off    on      fail
   5      on     off     OK
   6      off    on      fail
   .       .      .       .     
   .       .      .       .     
   .       .      .       .     

So, it looks like I did get some success after the first attempt, but it was hit and miss. I could not discern a pattern.

I'm hoping this new information will help you determine what the problem might be.

I'm assuming when you used the bootloader and program that I sent you, you attempted the programming of the Axon II all from a Windows 7 64 bit computer? Is that correct?

Yep - Windows 7 (Home Premium) 64 bit

Yep - and that's how I have stuff. But for me everything works!!

Given that we are both using the same version of FBoot on the board (written by another supplier - ie not Webbot nor SoR but from a 3rd party), and that a bootloader from the pc end can only upload a flie (ie Webbot and everyone else just use the API) then I'm very confused why it works differently. Since WebbotLib Studio is going through the same comms API as any other bootloader client (fboot command line or McUber) then I am mega confusd.

Perhaps its the same when using other software at the computer end? Or do you get success when using A.N.Other programmer? Or does everything fail?

Have you considered working with a local Robofest or First Robotics team?

I disconnect my AVR Dragon programmer after programming the bootloader.

When using Webbotlib Studio's FBoot, there is nothing connected to my Axon II except for the USB cable and power source.

Have installed your attached bootloader hex file
Set fuse settings as specified in my setup ie 512W_7E00
I can then program your project hex file, and others, as many times as I want - all successfully - using the FBoot bootloader.

The ONLY way I can get it to fail  is to leave the hardware programmer, AVRISPMKII, attached to the board - as it causes a RESET during programming. Appreciate you are using the Dragon programmer (but I dont have one - so hard to compare).

So am somewhat at a loss why you are seeing something different.

Clutching at straws then you may need to unplug other/all hardware - as I have nothing connected to my AxonII when testing this - as I have no idea what your hex file does. Devices that control RESET or have high power needs (hence may put a large  drain on a non-charged capacitor could cause the bod to reset the board ) are the main suspects.

But for testing it would be best to disconnect all devices. If that works (as it does for me)  then try adding devices back in until it fails.

Attached you will find the bootloader that I'm using and my program.

Misc / disabled person needs help with setting up microcontroller
« Last post by dmehling on October 07, 2014, 04:12:35 PM »
I am a physically disabled person, and I have some simple electronics projects I would like to build in order to help me operate some devices.  For example, I need a way to turn pages on a Kindle.  I was thinking of mounting a servo on either side of the device in order to push the buttons to turn pages.  However, I cannot do this myself, and I don't know anyone who can do it.  Are there companies or individuals that will set up a microcontroller that is interfaced to a servo, or any similar kind of electronics project?
