Thanks for your feedback. I would like to try to assist you at least getting the PIC32MZ DA working as you might expect with the apps in MPLAB Harmony.
Thanks Mike - happy to work with you as there is so much good with Harmony and the 32MZ DA that I have almost certainly decided to go with it for my new design...but would certainly be really good if I could explore more functionality through the demos :)
There are some specific setup challenges you might have, but I can state very clearly that everything should build and run as expected, with or without reconfiguration.
I want to get your feedback on which apps you are trying to use, and when you say "not working" what your specific experiences are.
OK - I will provide feedback on issues I find: no problem :)
Right off the bat I want to share with you a couple of known customer issues you may face:
In aria_coffee_maker v2.04 we released the app using optimization -O3. This was unintentional, and could lead some users with the free version of the compiler not to compile correctly. We have corrected this for the next release, and any users of v2.04 that need to should revert to the -O1 optimization level.
I found this myself, but at least the compiler errors were obvious. I activated the 60 day trial of the "pro" compiler to work around this.
In all apps we have settings for the MEB2 jumpers (J9) that may not be fully understandable in documentation. Failure to set the jumper (which is under the start kit) will result in no display which would appear white due to the backlight enable.
Yes, found this - Google sorted it for me.
We have versions that support the 169 pin "internal DDR" and the 288 pin "external DDR" for PIC32MZ DA. However we have not been entirely consistent, and some apps only offer one version or the other. Some customers that do not know the difference will target an 169 pin device app at a 288 pin board (or vice versa). This will likely build and load (if tool warning is ignored) but it would not run.
Not had this - if it compiles, it runs. I have both boards (DM320008 and DM320010) and quickly learned how to change processors and BSPs.
Please let us know more about your system and experience, and we will try to help you out.
Eval system is DM320008 and DM320010, plus MEB2 with Newhaven 4.3".
This project is to replace an existing product using an AT91SAM9261 with 320x240 TFT, using own-design drivers/software/graphics design tools/etc.
New design will have:
- 800x480 TFT with resistive touchscreen.
- SQI flash for graphics storage and, maybe, program if it exceeds the on-chip flash size
- SD card, accessible to a PC, for data captured by the product
- probably USB device interface for PC program and firmware updates, although if this can be done by Wi-Fi or bluietooth so much the better.
- probably Bluetooth (as RS232 replacement)
It is not yet useful to talk about adding in additional elements (like SQI) until we have a fundamental agreement on functionality and some way to move forward.
Let me know if you need more info.
