    Sweeet! I just bought 10 of these and havent used them yet

    30m is very optimistic. This module is using non-spread-spectrum signalling on the same band as
    microwave ovens and WiFi, its a very noisy and intermittent channel. If you want range, go for other ISM bands
    which don't have to complete with 900W magnetrons. 5m is plausible in a domestic setting in my experience,
    maybe 10 with the lowest baud rate, though there is a version with an LNA and PA which will improve that
    somewhat, 10dB or so I think.

    @proplem - since the stack is kept in hub RAM you can access it from by reading the loop stack pointer from cog register 17.
    The top of the loop stack is only in cog memory so you only have to go back to the end of the second entry for the index K.
    : K	17 COG@ $14 - @ ;
    

    I will put it into V4.7 EXTEND for convenience.

  • Hi Peter,
    is there an example of using the PingPong Network somewhere?
    I was thinking to integrate another AVR-Micro as a sensor slave as well.

    I was thinking to integrate another AVR-Micro as a sensor slave as well.

    The main advantage of using the PingPong type network is that it provides high-speed full-duplex console access to distributed Prop chips and there are modes built-in that allow a Prop to be loaded or read transparently from within the driver too. The master though doesn't use the built-in PingPong network itself so there is no advantage in having a Prop master and non-Prop slaves using this network other than the fact that it is self-pacing and effectively full-duplex due to the ping pong nature of data transfers.

    However, the protocol is fairly simple itself and once a connection is made then data can just be exchanged as if it were point to point. I will see if I can setup a micro as a slave, I even have some old AVR devices floating around. I think I probably need to document the protocol too but I guess you've seen the video.

  • Dipping my big Tachyon toe into nRF24L01 waters

    Well I decided not to look at anything I may have done before with this chip, which really was nothing. So I sat down with the datasheet and within 5 minutes I had written my first bit of code that can read the registers and use the external DUMP word to automatically read the chip as if it were memory.
    pub !RFIO	&11.14.13.12 SPIPINS ;
    5 bytes rfbuf
    pub RFREAD ( adr cnt -- buf )	SWAP SPIWRB SWAP FOR SPIRD rfbuf I+ C! NEXT SPICE DROP rfbuf ;
    pub RFC@ ( adr -- byte )	SPIWRB SPIRD SPICE >B ;
    pub RFW@ ( adr -- word )	2 RFREAD W@ ;
    pub RF@ ( adr -- long )		4 RFREAD @ ;
    pub RF		DUMP: RFC@ RFW@ RF@ ;

    }
    

    It all worked first go and I can dump bytes/words/longs and I may include doubles to allow for 5 bytes. The reset values of the registers match the datasheet.

    Now, that's the sort of productivity we could have with P2!!!!

    @Peter, thanks a lot for the responsiveness. "K" is working fine and again I learned something more about the inner workings.

    I've got another issue which has been discussed a while ago - RS232
    My setup: IoT5500
    ..  .VER   Propeller .:.:--TACHYON--:.:. Forth V4.5 DAWN 450170727.1400 ok

    1B40: EXTEND.fth          Primary extensions to TACHYON V4.5 kernel  - 170814-1100 k
    

    Trying the following code with 115200 BAUD misled me and I was hunting phantoms quite a while until I reduced the baudrate to 9600 and suddenly it was working.
    	#15 == _rx
    	#14 == _tx
    	38400 == hc06baud                         \ default baudrate can be increased
    	word rxrd
    	word rxwr
    	#128 == rxsize
    	rxsize BYTES bufHC06

    	pub HC06.TASK ( -- ) \ Buffer data from the HC06 port - nothing else
    	\	stackHC06 SP! !SP                     \ init data stack to 0, assign stack to this task
    		stackHC06 LP!                         \ v4r5: init stack to 0, assign stack to this task
    		hc06baud SERBAUD                      \ how fast are we going
    		rxrd W~ rxwr W~ bufHC06 rxsize ERASE  \ clear rxrd, rxwr and erase bufHC06
    		BEGIN
    		_rx SERIN rxwr W@                  \ get serial byte, fetch rxwr bufHC06 index( -- 0 datadr )
    		rxsize 1- AND bufHC06 + C!         \ compute bufHC06 addr and write data to buffer
    		rxwr W++                           \ increment buffer pointer
    		AGAIN
    		;
    
    	pub HC06GET ( -- ch|0 ) \ You can read the buffered data with this
    			 rxrd W@ rxsize 1- AND rxwr W@ rxsize 1- AND <>   \ compute if the buffer is empty
    			 IF
    				 rxrd W@ rxsize 1- AND bufHC06 + C@
    				 rxrd W++
    			 ELSE 0
    			 THEN
    			;
    
    	pub HC06START ' HC06.TASK TASK? RUN ;
    
    	: HC06EMIT hc06baud SERBAUD _tx SEROUT ;
    	: HC06 ' HC06EMIT uemit W! ;
    
    	HC06START \ to start
    	1000 ms \ wait a moment at startup
    
    	HC06 CR ." CR .DATE SPACE .TIME" CR CON _tx FLOAT bufHC06 rxsize DUMP
    

    I tried 115200 BAUD but it delivered garbage in the receive buffer using an IoT5500 with direct connection from pin 14 to pin 15.

    I don't need the RS232 comm for a HC06 device as I want to communicate between 2 propellers. I'd like it 115200 baud or even faster if possible.

    Any advice to get faster?

    BTW: this serial interface code and its buffering is such a miracle - it is nearly nothing and it works. I saw buffering code in lengthes of KBytes with many errors. As Forth is Zen - this code is. (Ohh: It is copied from the forum, it's not from me :-)

    Thanks, best regards
    proplem

    Edit: For those researching for RS232 communication with tachyon: On a propeller clocked by 96 MHz ( for example IoT5500 ) this code is tested working up to 38400 baud. If more speed is needed, look for UARTCOG.FTH which can do higher rates.
    I Am One With the Forth and the Forth Is With Me
  • @proplem - V4.5 has a UART ROM which handles full-duplex as well as the HSUART ROM for high speed auto half-duplex. Have a look at UARTCOG.FTH as you can specify the buffer sizes you need at runtime etc and it will handle 115,200 baud very easily.

    @MJB - That's about all the time I had to spend on it yesterday but I will play a bit more with it today. Did you notice the $68 in the undocumented register $1E ? All 8-bits seem to be writable but I have found nothing about it on the web except that registers $18..$1B are used for factory testing.

    with "so now for the more specific code ... " I was talking about myself - not rushing you ...

    I tried writing to register 0 with strange bhaviour.

    the modules CSN corresponds to SPI CE.
    and CE activates the radio -
    will test again tomorrow

    @MJB - there was a little bug in the posted code although that was fixed up in the dropbox version that ended up writing to registers it was trying to read in the invalid $20 up range.
    Have a look at NRF24L01 in the V4.7 folder.
    I am just looking at Nordic's BASCOM code, it looks very inefficient. For instance take this bit of code that writes to a register:
    D_bytes(1) = C_Write_reg + R_En_aa                              'Enable auto ACK for pipe0
    D_bytes(2) = &H01
    Call W_register(2)
    
    In Tachyon it is simply:
    1 EN_AA RFC!
    
    The same goes for writing the 5 byte address registers, just use a double number, the register, and RFD!

    nRF24L01+ PROMISCUOUS MODE

    I'm "playing around" with the nRF24L01 in promiscuous mode and having a lot fun :)

    Anyone "played around" as well?

    Here is a quick view of what I'm seeing using an illegal 2-byte address to catch preambles, in this case I just tried $5555 for fun.
    The listing starts with a dump of the registers and each line begins with the Tachyon runtime counter in milliseconds:

  • Hi there,

    @Peter I'm fighting with UARTCOG.FTH ...

    I built a word to output the RS232 settings:
    pub .COM ( adr -- ) --- output settings to console
    \ usage: uart1 .COM
      1 LOCAL
    	CR ." ---=== serial comm parameters ===---"
    	CR ." rx     " X1  0 + C@  .
    	CR ." tx     " X1  1 + C@  .
    	CR ." mode   " X1  2 + W@  .
    	CR ." baud   " CLKFREQ X1  4 +  @  / .
    	CR ." rxbuf(sz: " X1 10 + W@  DUP . ." ): "
    	CR ." rxwr   " X1 16 + W@  0 + W@ .
    	CR ." rxrd   " X1 16 + W@  2 + W@ .
    	X1  8 + W@ SWAP DUMP
    	CR ." txbuf(sz: " X1 14 + W@  DUP . ." ): "
    	CR ." txwr   " X1 16 + W@  4 + W@ .
    	CR ." txrd   " X1 16 + W@  6 + W@ .
    	X1  12 + W@ SWAP DUMP
    	1 RELEASE
    	;
    

    It results in
    uart1 .COM

    ..
    

    What I'd like to add would be the variable name for which .COM was called. Example:
    uart1 .COM
    
    should give
    ---=== 'uart1' serial comm parameters ===---                                                
    rx     14                                                                           
    tx     15                                                                           
    
    This is again such a CFA, PFA, NFA thing I asked some time ago but things changed since a lot :-))
    Can you give an example how I get the dictionary name for a given address?
    pub FETCHNAME ( adr -- str )
      CFA/PFA/WHATEVERFA>NFA PRINT$
      ;
    
    Usage:
    uart1 FETCHNAME uart1 ok
    

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi there,
    I'm still struggling with UARTCOG.FTH.

    As I didn't use ROMS before I had to try a lot to get the UARTCOG.FTH code running which in the end failed.

    My current v4r5 kernel does not contain the UART ROM :-(
    .. " HSUART   "  FINDROM . 58226 ok                                                
    ..  " UART     "  FINDROM . 0 ok                                                    
    .
    

    I looked into v4r7 which contains the UART ROM but I hesitate to upgrade because the whole EASYFILE EASYNET shebang for my IoT5500 project would have to run.
    Only the kernel v4r7 with my v4r5 has about 200 differences. This promises upgrade difficulties.

    Is it easier to insert the UART ROM into v4r5 to get UARTCOG.FTH running? May it be just copy and paste?

    Thanks in advance to supporters,
    proplem

    Stop! Don't answer patching UART ROM into v4r5 spin wasn't difficult only a few modifications
    ..  " HSUART   "  FINDROM . 58706 ok

    Hi @Peter - COGUART.FTH is running.

    As I wanted to test the communication with minicom over 115200 Baud there rose a new issue:

    Setting the baudrate with
    115200 UARTBAUD
    
    and reading the written value back with
    CLKFREQ uart1  4 +  @  / .
    
    gave back
    115246
    
    This is reasoned of losing some decimals by the division
    Is there a way to communicate with exactly 115200 Baud via UARTCOG.FTH ?
    I Am One With the Forth and the Forth Is With Me
  • @proplem - If you happen to have a 5.5296MHz crystal lying around x16 = 88.473600MHz /115,200 = 768 etc etc. I doubt very much though that ending up with the less perfect 115246 will cause any kind of problem. Back in the day of UART chips we'd use 11.0592Mhz or 3.6864 crystals etc just to get that exact baudrate.

  • Hi proplem, this should not have any influence, because the, as Peter said in the meantime, the clock just samples the middle of every bit and we only have 10 or 11 of them.
  • Thanks to you both - so communcation should work with minicom by setting 115200 baud ?
    So the error must sit in front of the keyboard?

  • Hurray - UARTCOG talks with minicom with 115246 Baud mincom is now happy with it. I don't know what I did wrong yesterday ...
    Thanks again!!!

  • Hi there - I need a technical term:
    Executing
    long myvar
    ' myvar
    
    What is the thing lying now on top of stack called?
    I Am One With the Forth and the Forth Is With Me
  • @MJB - That's about all the time I had to spend on it yesterday but I will play a bit more with it today. Did you notice the $68 in the undocumented register $1E ? All 8-bits seem to be writable but I have found nothing about it on the web except that registers $18..$1B are used for factory testing.

    with "so now for the more specific code ... " I was talking about myself - not rushing you ...

    I tried writing to register 0 with strange bhaviour.

    the modules CSN corresponds to SPI CE.
    and CE activates the radio -
    will test again tomorrow

    I know these terms and Forth words already although I don't understand them fully. Especially and TICK I can't use. I think they don't answer my question so I try to reformulate my intention. It's a pity that there seems to be no technical term for the ' variable thing I asked before.

    After some research I meanwhile can Interactively find and output the name of the calling word like this:
    ..  pub FETCHNAME

    ..  long myvar ' myvar FETCHNAME myvar ok
    
    That's well what I wanted so far if I'm working interactively but ...

    What I'd really like to do is:
    pub ANYFUNC ( var/adr -- )
      CR ."  <" FETCHNAME ." > stood before the call" ;
    
    Usage:
    long anyvar ANYFUNC
    
    and the resulting output should be:
    <anyvar> stood before the call
    
    How can I get the ' variable thing from the memory address on the top of stack?

    Proplem,
    long anyvar
    
    does not leave anything on the stack ...
    you want
    anyvar 
    ANYFUNC
    
    ??
    so given a top of stack value - if it was a variable address, what is the variable's name?

    what do you need this funcion for ?

    what I meant to write was:
    long anyvar
    anyvar ANYFUNC
    

    What I intend to do is to get the name of a variable/word from its address.
    Why? There are several reasons:
    1. reason: (untested code - just for information)
    pub .COM ( adr/var -- ) \ output config data for serial interface
      CR ." serial port <" DUP FETCHNAME " > settings"
      \ ... code to output the register settings of the given serial port
      ;
    
    usage (just to give an example):
    uart1 .COM
    serial port <uart1> settings
    rx: 1
    tx: 2
    rxsiz: 32
    rxbuf : $1234 ok
    uart2 .COM
    serial port <uart2> settings
    rx: 3
    tx: 4
    rxsiz: 32
    rxbuf : $2234 ok
    uart3 .COM
    serial port <uart3> settings
    rx: 5
    tx: 6
    rxsiz: 32
    rxbuf : $3234 ok
    

    2. reason:
    I have a table (list) of variables addresses maybe like this:
    long myvar1
    myvar 4 + ORG
    0 DS *SOV* --- start of variables
    4 DS myvar2
    4 DS myvar3
    4 DS myvar4
    0 DS *EOV* --- end of variables
    
    These variables are set in any way ...
    Now I want to iterate over this list between *SOV* and *EOV* and send every variable in the list over RS232 to another prop.
    This looping is a thing I have to implement. I want to iterate elementwise, dereference the name of the variable according to the address and send that via rs232. I can't write that down yet but I need to dereference the variable name from its address.

    I hope it's clearer now - thanks for your help

    so given a top of stack value - if it was a variable address, what is the variable's name?

    what do you need this funcion for ?
    what I meant to write was:
    long anyvar
    anyvar ANYFUNC
    

    What I intend to do is to get the name of a variable/word from its address.
    Why? There are several reasons:
    1. reason: (untested code - just for information)
    pub .COM ( adr/var -- ) \ output config data for serial interface
      CR ." serial port <" DUP FETCHNAME " > settings"
      \ ... code to output the register settings of the given serial port
      ;
    
    usage (just to give an example):

    2. reason:
    I have a table (list) of variables addresses maybe like this:
    long myvar1
    myvar 4 + ORG
    0 DS *SOV* --- start of variables
    4 DS myvar2
    4 DS myvar3
    4 DS myvar4
    0 DS *EOV* --- end of variables
    
    These variables are set in any way ...
    Now I want to iterate over this list between *SOV* and *EOV* and send every variable in the list over RS232 to another prop.
    This looping is a thing I have to implement. I want to iterate elementwise, dereference the name of the variable according to the address and send that via rs232. I can't write that down yet but I need to dereference the variable name from its address.

    I hope it's clearer now - thanks for your help

    maybe this is shorter ...
    and you can use the solution to 1. in the loop as well
    3 LONGS myvar1
    myvar1 4 +  ORG
    4 DS myvar2
    4 DS myvar3
    
    3 FOR myvar1 I 4 * + @ . NEXT

  • @Peter, @MJB - you got it! Nearly.
    ...
    If you want to find the NFA of a variable or constant just $8000 OR before to convert it to a 15-bit literal wordcode and then do a CFA>NFA.
    long myvar
    myvar $8000 OR CFA>NFA 1+ PRINT$ myvar ok
    
    is exactly what I wanted.

    It is terrible how many posts i create to get such a simple solution - really funny, but:
    There is still one thing open:
    TABLE uart1
    ---	rx  tx  mode
    	0 | 1 | 0 ||
    ---	baudrate ticks
    	CLKFREQ 19,200 / ,
    ---	rxbuf, rxsiz
    	rxbuf1 || 32 ||
    ---	txbuf, txsiz
    	txbuf1 || 32 ||
    ---	ptr to buffer word indices (rxwr,rxrd,txwr,txrd)
    	rxwr1 ||
    
    Unfortunately here the trick doesn't work:
    uart1 $8000 OR CFA>NFA 1+ PRINT$ � ok
    
    The solution to this is what I need (but didn't know myself)
    sniff :surprise:
    Nevertheless thanks at lot to both of you.
