  • Display value received from FFPGA.
  • The value received from FPGA is zero.

  • Ed suggested that we use the debug terminal on the LV panel to check if the registers are populated.
  • Checked for the output of parameter 136 (CA Pressure Transducer Reading) -> Output 0 as expected.
  • Checked for the output of parameter 135 (CA PT Readback) -> Output 0 which means the readback registers are not populated with the right values.
  • Checked other similar parameters to which changes have not been made -> still 0.
  • Parameters such as Saturation flags and Track and Hold state are old parameters that have not changed their values in sometime.
  • TODO: Look at the firmware to check there is anything in particular that has to be altered for the FPGA to sent the right values to the ARM.

Are there any updates on this bug?

  • The PT Readback was tested for issues wrt LV and compared with earlier version of LV (Ed's version as the Sat flags work in his case).
  • Tried to write a value to the register and to see if it reflected on the output.
  • The output was still 0, however, the previously sent value does seem to show up as the value entered.
  • This is because, this register cannot be written to and only read.
  • Next, tried to write a default value to the code by specifying the default value in the spreadsheet.
  • Output still remains 0.
  • The FPGA is constantly writing 0s to ARM memory and this is seen in LV.
  • Would be helpful to determine cause by uploading default value from F/W.
