    PX4 flow sensor is not working in Pixhawk 4's I2C A port. Any idea?

    @sujiv0 3 common issues; flash with the correct code, power with dedicated UBEC and use a rangefinder (yes you need it to get the code working)

    @sujiv0
    @patrickpoirier51 As I mentioned discussion, the same is working in I2C B port (UART& I2CB) with same configuration. And it's not giving data when I'm changing from I2CB to I2CA

    Any help with porting to SPRacingF3 board?
    Stephen Dade
    @stephendade
    @jonmendenhall - the F3 boards do not have enough flash memory to hold the APM firmware. Need at least 1Mb flash

    Hi, I'm confusing about how to power a servo with pixhawk 4.
    I connected the signal to OUT7 and +/- to a BEC and didn't work.
    Then I connected the negative of the servo to the negative bus of pixhawk and smoke appears on the servo :(
    Here is a wiring diagram:

    Hi, I am looking to build custom power distribution board to fit my drone that can handle the 120 A of all ESC. Do you know any good supplier ? Pcbway and jlcpcb only allow 3oz boards and I don't want to have a large board

    Hello, I am switching my hardware to the cube black. I've read on the forum that bulletin about some trouble with some versions of hardware. I wanted to hook it to mission planner and see if it says the warning. So far it hasn't throw it but I am not sure if it is because I've uploaded a firmware built from source. I used BlackCube target on waf, is that correct? I noticed also CubeBlack+. With arduplane built from source mission planner doesn't give any warning. I've tried to upload the firmware directly from mission planner but somehow it doesn't detect the board. Should I be sure that my hardware is not affected by that bulletin? Thank you very much.

    i have a pixhawk1 with a broken off usb connector....I am unable to update ardupilot releases. I have tried hooking up via the USB port pin output (vin, d-, d+, g) and none of my linux or windows PC detect it....i try flashing via serial port using an USB-TTL converter and no luck either....i was wondering if I can flash the latest ardupilot hex via ST-LINK device? but I need to locate the proper pins (SWDIO, SWCLK)...is this possible?
    David Sastre
    @Davidsastresas
    I think in Pixhawk1 those pins are exposed on the PCB. You should be able to upload the firmware directly by them, in the ardupilot firmware download page, I think you need to flash the firmware with bl version if I am not wrong.

    Hello, I'm trying to port Ardupilot code to STM32F779.In list of supported hardware board i could not find this exact board. The nearest board i could find was STM32F777x.
    Can anyone mention the list of steps that i need to follow to port my code to STM32F779?
    Also please mention how to verify whether or not my code has been ported successfully to the said board. Thanks in advance..
    Andrew Tridgell
    @tridge
    @syedhammadhussain I would guess that 777 and 779 are very similar. Quite likely you can treat it as a 777 for initial port

    Hello, I'm trying to use two digital airspeed sensor (ms4525) with i2c splitter and I plug it into Pixhawk4's port i2c. In mission planner I read correctly after the values of airspeed.
    My question is how Pixhawk4 could read it despite they have the same address (0x28H) and connected to the same i2c port(bus)

    Thanks in advance.

    @patrickpoirier51 nice! what interface? uart?

    @davidbuzz
    @syedhammadhussain - the core file you need to get right to do a 'port' is called hwdef.dat, and there is basically one of those for every port/board... as tridge suggested find something that is as clase as you can to your cpu type, and them adjust it . https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/tree/master/libraries/AP_HAL_ChibiOS/hwdef
    ... and my guess is that this file based on the 777 is the most relevant point to start from..

    I am looking for cheap/budget logic analyser Wich one would you recommend ?
    Peter Barker
    @peterbarker
    @Silvanosky saleae if you can afford it (check to see if you qualify for their discounts). saleae knockoff if you can't.
    Charles Villard
    @Silvanosky
    @peterbarker thanks that was the brand I saw many people had in ardupilot devs and I did not know that they do discount for students. Has the Logic 8 enough sample rate ? I never used this kind of device but I think it would be very usefull to debug all my protocol programming
    Buzz
    @davidbuzz
    there are very cheap chines clones of saleae around, generlly work fine too.

    Which is the correct place to ask doubt about Here2 GNSS Module?
    sujiv0
    @sujiv0
    I connected I2C bus of Here2 Module to Raspberry Pi and checked for I2C devices. Surprisingly it detected "0x0c" (AK8975 series) instead of "0x68/9" (ICM20948 series). Is this the expected compass?
    Charles Villard
    @Silvanosky
    If I am not wrong the ICM20948 has an AK09916 as compass
    sujiv0
    @sujiv0
    @Silvanosky Yeah, you are correct. But how to get the other sensors (gyro & accel) if the active I2C address of ICM20948 is 0x0c (which is nothing but the I2C address of AK09916)?
    auturgy
    @auturgy
    Here2 mimics the i2c compass, it doesn’t actually present the sensor directly. There’s an stm32 in between, so you’ll have to write a firmware for that to access the full icm20948, or ask Hex to give you a firmware that does that.
    Charles Villard
    @Silvanosky
    The icm20948 use I2C passthrough to access the compass, you communicate on some registers on 0x68 and it will forward to the compass. You can configure the ICM20948 to get all the data for you and so read all data in one buffer (Gyro + Accel+Mag) so you avoid multiple request
    sujiv0
    @sujiv0
    @Silvanosky while connecting to Raspberry Pi, I'm not able to detect device with 0x68/69 over the bus. Only 0x0c is present in i2c bus. I have no idea to change the active I2C address
    @auturgy how to access the STM32? Any idea. @proficnc Is there any firmware available so that the required data (9DOF) are available over I2C

    @tridge Here are the new specs for the OpenMV H7 capabilities : Cam RPC Interface Library Released
    MAY 12, 2020 POSTED BY: KWABENA AGYEMAN

    New OpenMV Cam Interface Library
    As there's been nothing to do but stay at home and work we've been getting a lot of coding done lately. In particular, there's now an Interface Library for the OpenMV Cam!

    The new OpenMV Cam Interface Library lets you control your OpenMV Cam over:

    Async Serial (UART) - at up 7.5 Mb/s on the OpenMV Cam H7.
    I2C Bus - at up to 1 Mb/s on the OpenMV Cam H7.
    SPI Bus - at up to 20 Mb/s (40/80 Mb/s possible too) on the OpenMV Cam H7.*
    CAN Bus - at up to 1 Mb/s on the OpenMV Cam H7.
    USB Virtual COM Port (VCP) - at up to 12 Mb/s on the OpenMV Cam M4/M7/H7.
    WiFi using the WiFi Shield - at over 12 Mb/s on the OpenMV Cam M4/M7/H7.
    In particular, I sat down and debugged CAN, I2C using DMA in both master and slave mode, SPI using DMA in both master and slave mode, USB VCP, and WiFi.

    hi everyone, i am trying to port to stm32h743zi. can anyone tell me the popular sensors used by the community (imu, gps etc). i see quite a few sensors listed in supported hardware, but i am confused as to which one to choose, preferably popular and affordable. thanks.
