Problems programming iCE40HX1K-EVB with OLIMEXINO-32U4
« on: October 03, 2016, 10:09:27 AM »
Hello,

I'm having some trouble trying to program the iCE40HX1K-EVB with the OLIMEXINO-32U4.

Arduino 1.0.5 (from Ubuntu 14.04 repositories) didn't work.  Arduino 1.6.12 in /opt worked and didn't require root privileges.

The SPIFlash library conflicted with a library of the same name by LowPowerLab (Moteino) so I renamed it to MoteinoSPIFlash in sketckbook/libraries, cloned github.com:Marzogh/SPIFlash as WinbondSPIFlash and made a symlink to the one I wish to use at the moment.

I checked the position of the voltage select jumper on the OLIMEXINO-32U4 and checked the voltage was 3V3 on the IDC-10 connector before connecting to the iCE40HX1K-EVB.

Then I tried to read the flash ID:

Code: [Select]
$ iceprogduino -t

Test mode
Serial: /dev/ttyACM0: Success
Bye.

$ iceprogduino -I/dev/ttyACM3 -t

Test mode
Serial: /dev/ttyACM3: Success
Manufacturer ID: 0x00 / Device ID: 0x0000
Bye.


I noticed that no LEDs on iCE40HX1K-EVB were lit so I bridged the 3V3 solder jumper on the programming connector.  Then:

Code: [Select]
$ iceprogduino -I/dev/ttyACM3 -t

Test mode
Serial: /dev/ttyACM3: Success
Winbond Serial Flash - W25Q16BV
Bye.

Reading the flash doesn't seem to work however:

Code: [Select]
$ iceprogduino -I/dev/ttyACM3 -v -r /tmp/iC40-flash.bin
read 0x000000 +0x200000..

Writing data to file /tmp/iC40-flash.bin
Bye.

Writing doesn't work either:

Code: [Select]
$ make prog
iceprogduino -I /dev/ttyACM3 example.bin
Serial: /dev/ttyACM3: Success

bulk erased.
Winbond Serial Flash - W25Q16BV

programming..
Winbond Serial Flash - W25Q16BV
prog 0x000100 +0x100...^CMakefile:20: recipe for target 'prog' failed
make: *** [prog] Interrupt

I recompiled iceprogduino to no avail.

I supplied 5V to the barrel jack on the iCE40HX1K-EVB but that didn't help either.

What should I try next?

EDIT: Could this be the issue (This from the OLIMEXINO-32U4 that I bought with the iCE40HX1K-EVB)?

I gave up in the end and wrote something for the Raspberry Pi to upload images to and dump images from the flash chip:

  https://github.com/neilstockbridge/W25Q16DV-programmer

Using this (crude) tool, I was able to upload `example.bin` to the iCE40HX1K-EVB and witness the blinky lights.

Hey,

Thank you for the RPi project! Yet, about OLIMEXINO-32U4 as programmer:

1. Did you upload: https://github.com/OLIMEX/iCE40HX1K-EVB/blob/master/programmer/olimexino-32u4%20firmware/iceprog.ino to the 32u4 board?

2. Did you stumble upon our instructions at the wiki here: https://www.olimex.com/wiki/ICE40HX1K-EVB ?

3. Did you stumble upon our Windows guide here: https://olimex.wordpress.com/2016/07/18/using-ice40hx1k-evb-under-windows/ ?

Also the rotated quartz of OLIMEXINO-32U4 is normal. This is mentioned on page 14 of the user's manual at the bottom of chapter "6.2 Clock":

IMPORTANT: If the board has a quartz crystal rotated at 45 degrees relative to the pads provided do not panic. This is normal. We have two types of such crystals – one of them requires 4 pads, the other only 2 pads. That is why we have provided 4 pads to be able to fit both crystals. All boards Olimex manufactures pass automatized optical inspection after assembly and obvious misplacement like this is impossible to occur.
