 Post subject: Atom Pro 24 can't connect
PostPosted: Wed Mar 12, 2003 7:00 pm 
using ide 07.1.0.1 on a win xp computer.

test program;
temp var byte

temp = 0

for temp = 1 to 20
next

when I hit debug;
it compiles with no error,
it loads to 100%,
a pop up appears "connection lost to Atom" verify load F79b.

I can connect with one of the terminal pages and get echo's just fine.
help???

I tried loading the ide on a win98 computer and just got a bunch of "invalid path errors" when it tries to find the compiler.

The invalid path errors should be gone on win98 with the 7.1.0.1 release? Did you use that one or the old one on Win98?

The Verify load error is caused because the loader routine sent to the AtomPro failed to verify at location F79b. This is definetly a communications error(either bad data received or bad data sent back to the PC) since the AtomPro is not writing anything to flash at that point.

I guess I'll have to put the advanced settings option into the AtomPro IDE as well.

I'm having the same issue.

Three different Pros, two different boards, three different computers (two XP, one WIN2K), four different cables, reloaded the software (which is co-resident with the std Atom software and MBasic f/ MPic). I've use the wall wart that came with the board, a one amp wall wart, and a five amp (extremely well regulated) bench power supply.

(I've pretty much covered every reasonable iteration of Pro, board, cable, PC, Power supply/cube, and OS)

Program software is 7.1.0.1.

On two of the Pros, the disconnect happens almost immediately when Verify starts. On the third, it makes it most of the way through Verify, but pops up a Verify error.

The same procedures and code loads and runs fine on the Std Atom and the Atom 28 (I'm still at "Blinking LEDs and Tweaking Servos" level).

Any ideas? I'm thinking a bad batch of chips.

Thanks

Scott

The problem you are describing only shows on some PCs. Some PCs need a tighter com timing than otheres(We have 1 computer that shows the problem and ten that don't). The verify that is failing is the verify of the loader program. This indicates the timing error is in the firmware of the AtomPro. This problem has been fixed but you will have to return your AtomPros for the update. This is the one type of bug that can't be fixed in the field.

Follow-up:

I sent my Pro 24s in, they were replaced or updated and returned the same week (got 'em today).

They are all working perfectly.

Excellent service!

Hats off and Thanks!

Scott

I have an ARC32 being programmed from Basic Micro Studio (2.0.0.15), after the program has been loaded I get an error message stating 'Error Verifying c94'.

Is this the same problem as described above? do I need to return my board?

thanks
Mark

Unlikely. The post you are bumping is from 2003. The ARC32 wasnt even a glimmer in our eyes that long ago. The code has changed so much since then I doubt there is any connection. Also the arc32 has its own USB2Serial adapter built into it. This problem from 2003 was mainly because of third part USB2Serial adapters.

However, if the error is returning a random location it is probably a communications error. If the location is the same every time I'd have to same there is a problem with the flash memory location. If it is a random value your PC may be too slow or have too many other things running on it. The verify dumps alot of data back to the pc assuming the PC can buffer it all. If it can't you can get a random bad location. If its the latter(the same location everytime) you should probably send it back to us to check. You can also double check on another PC. If the same thing(and same location) happens then the baord will need to be replaced.

Thanks for the reply Acidtech, I'll investigate using another PC.

It looks like I have just encountered this same problem. I'm getting the exact same address each time "verifyload f783". Does this mean it is a hardware problem if it is what do I do now. I am using a BAP 40 only had it 2 weeks.

What is the full error message you get?
