rf_port_select does not work

Category: Software
Product Number: iiolib

Good morning

for this

ret = iio_channel_attr_write(phy_chn_rx, "rf_port_select", rxcfg.rfport);

I get a -22

Other settings for the rx channel work

The 

 phy_chn_rx = iio_device_find_channel(phydev, "voltage0", false );

gives the channel for rx. This one works.

Additionally is of value to assign settings to altvoltage0 or altvoltage1 for the PLUTO?
It seems they are not available ...

Thank You

Pietro

  • On the Pluto, only the A Balanced inputs are used.

    Therefore the other settings are locked - please see here:

    https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux/blob/master/arch/arm/boot/dts/zynq-pluto-sdr.dtsi#L248

    You should be able to control the RX/TX LOs using altvoltage0 or altvoltage1.

    When you iio_device_find_channel() you need to make sure that you look for an output channel...

  • Hi 

    Thank You for the assistance. I will follow the indication.
    I have further questions.
    I want to reread the attribute.
    A list of what happens:
    1. iio_channel_attr_read( phy_chn_tx, "rf_port_select", (char*)txcfg.rfport, 10 )  -> -10014
    2. iio_channel_attr_read_longlong( phy_chn_tx, "rf_bandwidth", &txcfg.bw_hz ); -> -22
    3. iio_channel_attr_read_longlong( phy_chn_tx, "sampling_frequency", &txcfg.fs_hz ); -> 0
    4. iio_channel_attr_read_double(   phy_chn_tx, "hardwaregain", &txcfg.gain_db ); -> 0 but gain = 2600000
    5. iio_channel_attr_read_longlong( phy_chn_tx, "frequency", &txcfg.lo_hz); -> -2
    6. iio_channel_attr_read(          phy_chn_rx, "rf_port_select", (char*)rxcfg.rfport, 10 ); -> -5
    7. iio_channel_attr_read_longlong( phy_chn_rx, "rf_bandwidth", &rxcfg.bw_hz ); -> -10053
    8. iio_channel_attr_read_longlong( phy_chn_rx, "sampling_frequency", &rxcfg.fs_hz ); -> -10053
    9. iio_channel_attr_read_double(   phy_chn_rx, "hardwaregain", &rxcfg.gain_db ); -> -10053
    10. iio_channel_attr_read_longlong( phy_chn_rx, "frequency", &rxcfg.lo_hz); -> -2


    The attributes were written previously with return code 0.
    I suppose I should reread the same values. What happens?
    Where are the return codes ?
    Thank You

    Pietro

  • Attribute values written may have different read values if the value is not possible. If you want to get the return code look at the doc for each function you call: http://analogdevicesinc.github.io/libiio/v0.24/libiio/index.html

    -Travis

  • Hi Travis

    Thank You
    I suppose if the value is different simply I get the value but not the error.
    Can You tell me which file to open for reading the error codes?

    Thank You

    Pietro

  • Hi

    I just tested the iio_strerror()
    For all of the codes I have Unlnown error..
    Just help
    Than You

    Pietro

  • Can you provide the specific libiio function and error code?

    -Travis

  • Good morning Travis,

    It seems there is no way to attach  files.
    I dump here the source. Sorry it is long..

    The setup of the pluto is here. The calls to the IIO_LIB are prepended with a IIO_lib_itf.

    Not one of the readout is correct,  

    Thank You

  • Can you provide a simple example in just C?

    -Travis

  • Hi Travis

    The initialization appears correct ..
    The readout is totally out of order.

    printf("* Initializing streaming channels\n");
    tx0_i = iio_device_find_channel(tx, "voltage0", true);
    if (!tx0_i)
    tx0_i = iio_device_find_channel(tx, "altvoltage0", true);

    tx0_q = iio_device_find_channel(tx, "voltage1", true);
    if (!tx0_q)
    tx0_q = iio_device_find_channel(tx, "altvoltage1", true);

    // Up to here it is correct

    // Now I want to read and nothing works

    struct stream_cfg txcfg_read;


    {
    txcfg_read.rfport = " ";
    txcfg_read.bw_hz = 0;
    txcfg_read.fs_hz = 0;
    txcfg_read.gain_db = 0;
    sz = iio_channel_attr_read(tx0_i, "rf_port_select", (char*)txcfg_read.rfport, 10);
    int err2 = iio_channel_attr_read_longlong(tx0_i, "rf_bandwidth", &txcfg_read.bw_hz);
    err2 = iio_channel_attr_read_longlong(tx0_i, "sampling_frequency", &txcfg_read.fs_hz);
    err2 = iio_channel_attr_read_double(tx0_i, "hardwaregain", &txcfg_read.gain_db);
    }

    Thank     You

    Pietro

  • It looks like you reading channels from the wrong device.

    For Pluto there are 3 relevant IIO devices...

    Can you start with the iio_info command?

  • Is this the outcome?

    This example is working for streaming it does the initialization without any problem. I just add the lines of code for reading what is already written. 

    Can You modify the example for streaming and show this  API work?

    Thank You

    Pietro

  • So Michael was referring to the IIO devices that you reference for pulling back information. You can use iio_info and iio_attr to examine what is available. First I would start with iio_attr to list the devices as so:

    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -d
    IIO context has 5 devices:
    	iio:device0, adm1177: found 0 device attributes
    	iio:device1, ad9361-phy: found 18 device attributes
    	iio:device2, xadc: found 1 device attributes
    	iio:device3, cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc: found 0 device attributes
    	iio:device4, cf-ad9361-lpc: found 0 device attributes

    The devices cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc and cf-ad9361-lpc are the controls for data streaming and DDS control. You can tell since they have scan elements (that's an IIO concept for buffer management):

    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -s -c cf-ad9361-lpc
    dev 'cf-ad9361-lpc', channel 'voltage0' (input, index: 0, format: le:S12/16>>0)
    found 6 channel-specific attributes
    dev 'cf-ad9361-lpc', channel 'voltage1' (input, index: 1, format: le:S12/16>>0)
    found 6 channel-specific attributes
    
    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -s -c cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc
    dev 'cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc', channel 'voltage0' (output, index: 0, format: le:S16/16>>0)

    dev 'cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc', channel 'voltage1' (output, index: 1, format: le:S16/16>>0)

    Since you don't specify in your code how "tx" is created, our guess is that its not from ad9361-phy.

  • So Michael was referring to the IIO devices that you reference for pulling back information. You can use iio_info and iio_attr to examine what is available. First I would start with iio_attr to list the devices as so:

    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -d
    IIO context has 5 devices:
    	iio:device0, adm1177: found 0 device attributes
    	iio:device1, ad9361-phy: found 18 device attributes
    	iio:device2, xadc: found 1 device attributes
    	iio:device3, cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc: found 0 device attributes
    	iio:device4, cf-ad9361-lpc: found 0 device attributes

    The devices cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc and cf-ad9361-lpc are the controls for data streaming and DDS control. You can tell since they have scan elements (that's an IIO concept for buffer management):

    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -s -c cf-ad9361-lpc
    dev 'cf-ad9361-lpc', channel 'voltage0' (input, index: 0, format: le:S12/16>>0)
    found 6 channel-specific attributes
    dev 'cf-ad9361-lpc', channel 'voltage1' (input, index: 1, format: le:S12/16>>0)
    found 6 channel-specific attributes
    
    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -s -c cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc
    dev 'cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc', channel 'voltage0' (output, index: 0, format: le:S16/16>>0)
    found 4 channel-specific attributes
    dev 'cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc', channel 'voltage1' (output, index: 1, format: le:S16/16>>0)
    found 4 channel-specific attributes

    The ad9361-phy is where all the main control attributes for the transceiver live:

  • Hi Travis

    I changed the call to the read this way

    err2 = iio_channel_attr_read_bool( iio_device_find_channel(phydev, "voltage0", true), "rf_bandwidth", &pluto_ad9361_phy_attrib.voltage0_out.filter_fir_en ); // wrong
    iio_strerror(err2, buf2, 200);
    err2 = iio_channel_attr_read(iio_device_find_channel(phydev, "voltage0", true), "rf_port_select", pluto_ad9361_phy_attrib.voltage0_out.rf_port_select, 20 ); // wrong
    iio_strerror(err2, buf2, 200);

    Now all of the readings are working. But the difference is the channel is inlined every time rather than recycled from a variable. It should not make any difference but ... That's it.

    Thank You

    Pietro

  • Reusing a channel pointer or re-creating it does not matter.

    -Travis

  • Thank You for this support. I am trying to learn  just doing.

    I have a different behaviour or the command 

    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -c ad9361-phy

    I get 

    dev 'ad9361-phy', channel 'altvoltage1', id 'TX_LO' (output), found 8 channel-specific attributes

    dev 'ad9361-phy', channel 'voltage2' (input), found 13 channel-specific attributes
    dev 'ad9361-phy', channel 'out' (input), found 1 channel-specific attributes

    I do not access the attributes of the channels. How to get the same result You have?

    Thank  You'

    Pietro

  • I am trying to get the channel attributes but I do not get.
    Is there a different version?

    Thank You

    Pietro

  • You are missing the dot "." at the end of the command. Needs to be:

    iio_attr -u ip:pluto.local -c ad9361-phy .
