I have had a lot of success compiling\using multiple TI examples for the Concerto Control card, and overall I am pretty impressed. However, the template example "RT-SineFIRFFT" is giving me trouble. The quick start guide says that when the code starts it will report the IP address it got assigned through DHCP. Then you are supposed to use that IP address when connecting to Concerto with the provided GUI. However, I do not ever get a IP address reported. After I start the m3 code, it will report on the serial port "Ethernet with uIP", but never the IP address.
If I try the alternative method that the quick start guide recommends, which is to use a static IP address for Concerto and reconfigure my computer's TCP settings, then the GUI can never find the Concerto card.
It sounds to me like you are running into an issue with the GEL files. The GEL files setup the C28 core so that it can be run without being setup by the M3 in a debug environment, but this prevents the standard IPC boot procedure for the C28 from working. If you remove the GEL file from the C28 side, your code should start running as intended.
To remove the GEL file, select the C28 core in the debug window and go to Tools, GEL Files. In the window that appears in the bottom, right click on the GEL file and select remove. Reset the target, and try running the example again.
Let me know if this works for you,
Thanks Trey! That did the trick. Is there a particular reason that I need to both "Reset CPU" and "Restart" both M3 and C28 for this example to work. It seems overly complicated. In other words, is there a setting I need in CCS v5 to add so that all I have to do is "Build", "Load", and "Resume".
I suggest resetting and restarting because I know it works everytime that way. I believe when you restart a reset is issued to the processor, but I'm unsure.
While we could make a button that did everything for you, it would abstract away too much of what is going on behind the scenes and could potentially cause issues in end applications. We've tried to give customers as much visibility into this product to make it easier to understand (not that that is really easy...).
I have the same problem, however removing the gel file did not help.also the demo gui does not connect to the card.
