rprintfStr("bfin") // -------- Start Blackfin Camera------- // Set the value of colour bin 3 to a range of RGB values ;COLOR min,max; colorSetRGB(&min,10,0,0); colorSetRGB(&max,255,10,10); blackfinSetBinRange(&camera, 0, &min, &max);int numBlobs = uartGetByte(camera_uart);// this as well blackfinCountPixels(&camera, 0,20,30,20,30); // and this numBlobs = blackfinDetectBlobs(&camera, 0); ;rprintfu32(numBlobs); ;rprintfCRLF(); delay_ms(1000);
now i notice that there is another pin next to the rx and tx of the axon thats labeled g i assume this is ground does this need to be connected to anything or what?
and the output was this for the current code and just 0's for the other two example ... bfinFFFFFFFF
is it possible that accidentally connecting the blackfin's tx to the axon's tx and vice versa render the blackfin unusable
GPIO_H0 to the ground in the top right corner. Thats really it right?
is there a way to check if its broken or places to check for continuity to see if its working properly
i have ordered the usb to serial device so that i can attach the blackfin to Hyperterminal http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/391 i hope when it gets here my problems will be solved
If I remember right the firmware for using the standard Matchport wireless set up is configured for 2500kbps and the firmware for standalone uart usage is at 115kbps.
It almost sounds like it's transmitting with a non-standard baud rate . . . Gibberish is what you get when you're using a baud rate that's close to the actual, say within a factor of x20.
i also plan to call surveyor but as you said i don't know if they have tech support
