Atmega328P + RFM69HW(868) not working



  • I need help after 3wks of trying to find the problem. Couldn't find any similar problems of the forum either.
    I have built a node using Slim Node PCB but instead of NRF24 I have jumper wires to RFM69 connected per pin numbers to Atmega328P.
    My gateway is ESP8266(LolinV3)+RFM69HW (I can ping the ip without problems) so it's probably working (Domoticz "sees" it OK as well).

    This is my node sketch. The "void before" blinks the LED okay, but then it hangs.
    I have checked radio connections. I have the normal 10K res & 3x 0.1yF caps on PCB + 1x 4.7yF electrolytic+1x 0.1yF ceramic closer to the radio.
    I built also another node, but it has similar problems.

  • Mod

    @masmat nothing happens after TSM:FPAR ?



  • @mfalkvidd Exactly. That's where it just gets stuck. The other node didn't have the void-before so it just gets stuck when I power it up.


  • Mod

    @masmat see if adding #define MY_DEBUG_VERBOSE_RFM69 at top of the sketch can give useful information
    (Link)


  • Mod

    You can also try removing define MY_IS_RFM69HW - sometimes the vendors send non-HW versions with wrong label.



  • @mfalkvidd Verbose_rfm69 did nothing but uncommenting the HW seems to have worked. I'm getting 2m range now, so probably same problem on the GW as well?

    I looked at the modules and compared pictures. They're Chinese but the smd's on the board do match the HW-version.



  • I added the NEW_DRIVER to gw and node and re-added HW-option as well.
    Now within 1m of each other I get this output from node:

  • Mod

    @masmat -46 rssi is very good signal.
    Csma measures high noise level. Iā€™m on mobile now but Search the forum for MY_RFM69_CSMA_LIMIT_DBM
    https://www.mysensors.org/apidocs/group__RFM69Newgrp.html#gaa39d55e3916acaee71754c676b6fc048



  • @mfalkvidd OK, I did research that a little bit.
    If the signal is good, why all the NACKs?

    This?

  • Mod

    @masmat nack happens either because the receiver is unable to hear the message, or because the ack from the receiver is not heard by the sender.



  • @mfalkvidd What could be causing it? The two are in the same room 2m apart.
    I have "overpowered" gw (wall wart) and node (usb+battery) to make sure power wouldnt again be the typical culprit here. Also re-verified all connections.
    Built extra sensor too but thats not working at all (gotta re-check solders etc again and bootloader&sketch upload).


  • Mod

    @masmat first step would be to check the logs from the gateway to see which part fails.

    The most common cause for problems are unstable power, unstable power and unstable power - in that order šŸ˜‰ See the troubleshooting guide at https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/666/debug-faq-and-how-ask-for-help/ if you haven't already.

     * REVISION HISTORY
     * Version 1.0 - Henrik EKblad
     * Contribution by a-lurker and Anticimex,
     * Contribution by Norbert Truchsess <norbert.truchsess@t-online.de>
     * Contribution by Ivo Pullens (ESP8266 support)
     *
     * DESCRIPTION
     * The EthernetGateway sends data received from sensors to the WiFi link.
     * The gateway also accepts input on ethernet interface, which is then sent out to the radio network.
     *
     * VERA CONFIGURATION:
     * Enter "ip-number:port" in the ip-field of the Arduino GW device. This will temporarily override any serial configuration for the Vera plugin.
     * E.g. If you want to use the defualt values in this sketch enter: 192.168.178.66:5003
     *
     * LED purposes:
     * - To use the feature, uncomment any of the MY_DEFAULT_xx_LED_PINs in your sketch, only the LEDs that is defined is used.
     * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
     * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
     * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error
     *
     * See http://www.mysensors.org/build/esp8266_gateway for wiring instructions.
     * nRF24L01+  ESP8266
     * VCC        VCC
     * CE         GPIO4
     * CSN/CS     GPIO15
     * SCK        GPIO14
     * MISO       GPIO12
     * MOSI       GPIO13
     * GND        GND
     *
     * Not all ESP8266 modules have all pins available on their external interface.
     * This code has been tested on an ESP-12 module.
     * The ESP8266 requires a certain pin configuration to download code, and another one to run code:
     * - Connect REST (reset) via 10K pullup resistor to VCC, and via switch to GND ('reset switch')
     * - Connect GPIO15 via 10K pulldown resistor to GND
     * - Connect CH_PD via 10K resistor to VCC
     * - Connect GPIO2 via 10K resistor to VCC
     * - Connect GPIO0 via 10K resistor to VCC, and via switch to GND ('bootload switch')
     *
      * Inclusion mode button:
     * - Connect GPIO5 via switch to GND ('inclusion switch')
     *
     * Hardware SHA204 signing is currently not supported!
     *
     * Make sure to fill in your ssid and WiFi password below for ssid & pass.
