AD-FMCMOTCON1-EBZ MathWorks FOC IP controller will not go into closed loop mode

Hello! I am having better luck with my AD-FMCMOTCON1-EBZ, but I have gotten stuck again while trying to use the matlab controller in closed loop mode.

I followed the instructions to build the bootable SD card and update it to the lastest software using Zynq Quick Start Guide [Analog Devices Wiki]


I followed the instructions at the end of

AD-FMCMOTCON1-EBZ IIO User Guide [Analog Devices Wiki]


The script seems to get stuck while calibrating the encoder offset. It shows $OFFSET_DEC '/' $OFFSET_ERR, and $OFFSET_DEC keeps decreasing, or sometimes it increases. But it just keeps going and never seems to be satisfied. How do I fix it? Does the matlab closed loop controller require the optical encoder?


Here is the output of the script:

root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/usr/local/bin# ./

Initializing the FOC controller...

w: reg[0x100] = 0x3

w: reg[0x120] = 0x0

w: reg[0x11c] = 0x51f

FOC controller initialized. Select Run in IIO Scope and hit Enter to continue.
