nRF5 action!

    Well, as you all know, on the atmega328p you can read the 1.1v gap voltage using the battery voltage as the reference voltage, by doing analogRead(A0), and from just that one measurement then calculate the battery voltage by doing a little bit of math. So, I'm just wondering what the code is to do the equivalent of that (using 1.2v instead of 1.1v) on the nRF52832.

    If supplied with less than 3.6V you can do it with ADC, 1.2V voltage reference and 1/3 prescaling.
    But I've only looked at the theory yet.

    For this, you can use the implemented hwCPUVoltage() function. Reading the voltage costs nRF51: 260ยตA/20ยตs | nRF52: 700ยตA/3ยตs

    hwCPUVoltage()

    I'm finally installing Visual Micro, because I hope it will help me quickly find where all these functions are defined. With all these new layers, the Arduino IDE is just no longer cutting it.


  • Hero Member

    LOL. Well, Visual Micro found it alright, but just in the wrong place. It found it in MyHwAVR.cpp

    good choice ๐Ÿ‘
    for nrf5, the function is located in MyHwNRF5.cpp

    I tried this function call on an nRF52 DK, and it seems to work. I then tried it on an Ebyte module, treated as an nRF52 DK "board", and it reported zero voltage. So, probably I just need to do a pin mapping so that it reads the voltage on the proper pin. But which pin/mapping would it be? I thought that Vcc wouldn't really be mappable to anything but Vcc. I guess whichever analog pin (if that's what it is?) is connected to Vcc on the nRF52 DK is the pin I need to find and re-map to its equivalent pin on the Ebyte module. Hmmm.... I'll have to look into which one that would be.

    Actually, something different may be going on. Here's the function definition:

    uint16_t hwCPUVoltage()
    {
    	// VDD is prescaled 1/3 and compared with the internal 1.2V reference
    	Serial.println("Inside hwCPUVoltage function.");

    	// Restore LPCOMP state
    	NRF_LPCOMP->ENABLE = lpcomp_enabled;
    
    	return (sample*3600)/255;

    	NRF_SAADC->CH[0].PSELP = SAADC_CH_PSELP_PSELP_VDD << SAADC_CH_PSELP_PSELP_Pos;
    	NRF_SAADC->CH[0].CONFIG = (SAADC_CH_CONFIG_BURST_Disabled << SAADC_CH_CONFIG_BURST_Pos) |

    	NRF_SAADC->RESULT.MAXCNT = 1;
    	NRF_SAADC->RESULT.PTR = (uint32_t)&sample;

    #else
    	Serial.println("Unknown MCU!!");
    	// unknown MCU
    	return 0;
    #endif
    }
    

    One, perhaps likely, theory would be that it doesn't recognize the MCU, which would explain why it returns the value of zero. Well, to debug that, I added the Serial.println(...) statements into the library code (see above) in an attempt to see which of the if-else branches is being taken, but none of the Serial.println(...)'s were printed! Here's a sample of the output from the Ebyte Module:

    I'm not quite sure how to interpret that, but pretty clearly it doesn't contain the println's that I was expecting.

    Any theories as to what's going on?


  • Hero Member

    Bracketing that and setting it aside, I do now notice this line in the BatteryPoweredSensor demo sketch:

    int BATTERY_SENSE_PIN = A0;  // select the input pin for the battery sense point
    

    So, if I map that A0 in the sketch to the A0 of the Ebyte Module, then maybe (hopefully) the voltage measurement will work on the Ebyte Module. I'll give it a try.


  • Hero Member

    Unfortunately, after I add:

    #include <mySensors.h>
    

    the locus of control goes somewhere else (I guess the gateway or something?). Anyhow, it makes this very hard to debug.

    For instance, the pin of interest is PIN_AIN0. I can't find where it's defined, and I can't print out its value either, because of this locus of control issue.

    Anyhow, I think I may wait for others to get up and running with their modules, and start facing the same issues. Maybe then we can help each other figure this stuff out.


  • Contest Winner

    @NeverDie I don't know why the println() doesn't work. There is an "DEBUG_OUTPUT(x, ##VA_ARGS)" macro, you can use when debug is enabled.

    NRF_ADC is the nRF51 ADC and NRF_SAADC is the ADC of the nRF52. They are defined when "nrf.h" is included.

    What board type have use used for your tests?

    The nRF52832 Ebyte Module.

    I just re-read your question and realized you were asking something else than the question that I answered above.

    Answer: nRF52 DK is the board type, because I wired directly to P0.06 as its Tx pin on the Ebyte nRF52832 Module.

    I'll try that. Maybe it will be a little less of a learning curve than Visual Micro yet still do what I need.


  • Hero Member

    I just now did a brute force hack of the MySensors BatteryPoweredSensor sketch, where I copied and renamed the hwCPUVoltage function from the library and then called it from within a tight loop so that I never lose the locus of control. It worked!

    Besides that it can now do println()'s, the other good news is that it looks like I won't need to change the pin assignment.

    Too bad the demo sketch only transmits one byte of voltage information, rather than two bytes.

    @NeverDie said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    I tried this function call on an nRF52 DK, and it seems to work. I then tried it on an Ebyte module, treated as an nRF52 DK "board", and it reported zero voltage.

    I have tried the hwCPUVoltage() function with an Ebyte and an RedBear module. Both modules are reporting the voltage.

    Breakout board for the Ebyte nRF52832 module is now completed:
    https://www.openhardware.io/view/436/nRF52832-Breakout-Board#tabs-comments



  • @NeverDie Dam you why would you make it so wide? can it fit on a single bread board?

    Also how did you get those so fast?


  • Hero Member

    @Mike_Lemo said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    Dam you why would you make it so wide?

    In 20/20 hindsight, you're right. At the time I designed it I had huge concerns that the range on the nRF52832 might be awful, because the Adafruit nRF52832 feather that I tested had poor range. So, I gave it a very large ground plane to see if maybe that cured the problem. Only later did I receive the Ebyte module, which turned out to have good range even by itself.

    can it fit on a single bread board?

    Sorry, you'll need two.

    Also how did you get those so fast?

    OSH PARK averages around two weeks for me. That's the main reason why I buy from them.

    Thanks! Good to know.

    Just realized it has 2 extra I/O on the side, and the SWD are only pads on top, which makes 8 I/O available, it's much more interesting than the NRF51822 version.


  • Hero Member

    @Nca78
    Is there even a way to program the nRF51822 version? I'd have to check, but I don't recall the two SWD pins being on its pinout.

    That's good news. There must be something wrong with how I'm doing it. Which board type are you using for the Ebyte module?



  • From what I understand the NRF52832 has some kind of enforcer that allows different serial hardwares to be assigned to different pins

    Now using the arduino IDE I want to use the I2C pins that are assigned hardwarely to different pins here is the situation

    I have one PCB that has SCL connected to pin 20 and SDA to 21

    and another PCB that has SCL connected to pin 11 and SDA to pin 12

    I want to define the enforcer for the pins within their dedicated sketches without running around to the internal arduino files and change the pin assignment for each upload to each board.

    How'd I do that? I assume you'd have to do some thing like that in the upper side of the personal code.

    #define SDL...(Something else I don't know ) 11
    #define SDA...(Something else I don't know ) 12


  • Hero Member

    I think I have a better hypothesis as to what's going on in my situation: the ebyte module is getting hung-up trying to establish communication with the serial gateway. Looking at the output of the serial gateway, it looks as though it is receiving packets from the Ebyte module. However, looking at the Ebyte output, it thinks it is failing. So, the Ebyte never quite gets out of the "establish communication link" mode.

    This doesn't occur, though, if I use an nRF52 DK, instead of an Ebyte module.

    So, what might explain this is maybe the MISO pin on the Ebyte module isn't mapped right.

    @d00616 Would you please share the pin mappings and board type that you are using for your ebyte module? Since you are having success, I think that will fix the problem.



  • Does anybody know why the function tone() doesn't work for the nrf52?

    @Mike_Lemo could you be slightly more specific than "doesn't work"?



  • @mfalkvidd said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    @Mike_Lemo could you be slightly more specific than "doesn't work"?

    apparently it doesn't recognize it says tone wasn't declared in this scope

    That's how the line looks tone(BUZZER_PIN, BUZZER_TONE);
    BUZZER_PIN = 26
    BUZZER_TONE = 3000

    @Mike_Lemo if you mean the stuff described at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Tone it's because it only supports the following mcus:

    Some further evidence in support of this hypothesis (from: https://github.com/mysensors/ArduinoHwNRF5๐Ÿ˜ž

    Most components, like UART, SPI, Wire Bus, of the nRF5 series chips don't have a fixed pin mapping.



  • @mfalkvidd said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    @Mike_Lemo look it up? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_portability#Effort_to_port_source_code

    Well apperantly this function uses a PWM pin at 50% duty but the frequency varies according to the functiong user parameter now I just know how to active a PWM pin at 50% duty but not how to acces the NRF52 registers to change the frequency of the PWM.

    I don't realy know how to access the registers you see at the product's PDF and the other process.

    Does the nRF52 mcu communicate with its radio using SPI, or some other bus? Or are all the radio registers simply memory mapped?

    Well, if the mcu uses SPI to communicate with the radio, then I simply need to define which SPI "pins" those are. Attached is the pin mapping file that I used to successfully map the pins for Rx and Tx.

    @NeverDie if I'm not wrong you managed to connect the Ebyte module to your MySensors network, no ?
    I did it anyway and it received data.
    Radio is internally connected inside the nrf52 chip so I don't see how a module could have a different mapping ?


  • Hero Member

    Yeah, that's what I thought originally, and it probably is true. I'm just grasping at straws to understand why the "board" type seems to be affecting the radio communications. I'm also completely new to the mysensors way of handling radio, so that's getting in my way. I'm might have to try something more barebones before I can make sense of this.

  • Hero Member

    I've confirmed it now. Even if I comment out all apparent radio message sends, the mere act of including:

    #include <MySensors.h>
    

    results in a loss of control by the sketch itself to something within MySensors that wants to establish communication between the node and the gateway. Not even sure how that is happening. In any case, it is just overcomplicating the debugging, and I really don't want that right now because it is effectively hanging what I'm trying to do. ๐Ÿ˜ 

    For now, all I want is a simple send packet--like either the mirf or the twh20 libraries have for the nRF24L01--with no complicating factors. Is that too much to ask? I can probably find that somewhere within the library, but how do I turn-off this loop that it's in where it's repetitively trying to establish the initial communication with the serial gateway?

    @NeverDie said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    The registers are memory mapped, the data transferred with "EasyDMA" into the memory.

    The SecurityPersonalizer defines '#define MY_CORE_ONLY' before including 'MySensors.h'. In theory, you can use the radio functions defined in 'hal/transport/MyTransportHAL.h' directly. I had no luck with this, but I haven't invested time to debug this.

    You have to install the "MySensors nRF5 Boards" package. In the examples section for this package, you can find two files (MyNRF5Board.h + MyNRF5Board.cpp). Add these files to your sketch and compile it using "MyNRF5Board nRF52822" as you board.

    The registers are documented in the Infocenter and the bitfields.

    I don't realy know how to access the registers you see at the product's PDF and the other process.

    To access the registers, you have to add '#include <nrf.h>' to your code. Mostly the hardware is accesses by NRF_HWNAME->REGISTER

    Doing PWM is a little bit complex. The code is different for nRF51 and nRF52. Look into wiring_analog_nRF51.c and (wiring_analog_nRF51.c)[https://github.com/sandeepmistry/arduino-nRF5/blob/c98a190eb34c0247eb8e0764a6367c7f9e51d2fc/cores/nRF5/wiring_analog_nRF52.c#L214]

    If you clone this code, for nRF52 you have to use another timer, like TIMER2, because you can't define the interrupt routine twice.

    So I'm trying to program the S4AT modules and I have the ugly message

    That's probably when trying to use this function that I managed to unlock&erase the EByte module "by mistake" ๐Ÿ™‚

    The only problem now is the range seems to be very bad ๐Ÿ˜ž
    Less than 10m with just a brick wall and it fails to completely send the presentation messages.
    EBytes nrf52832 module works well in the same conditions, same for their nrf24 modules.

    [Edit] in fact not that bad, it works ok when changing the orientation of the module. Could be due to the funky wiring but my bet is it on the tiny antenna design. My gateway is an old through hole nrf24 clone so range should not be a problem in an appartment with a PA/LNA gateway.

    Unfortunately, and in contrast with the nRF52 DK, the new Ebyte module I just programmed is behaving the same as the Ebyte I've been experimenting with. No change.

    The arduino-nrf5 port only implements functionality documented in the official Arduino Reference but mostly not more functionality available for SAMD :-(. Additional functionality like BLE or using included hardware must come from external libraries like MySensors.

    A good way to implement the tone commands is to fork the arduino-nRF5 repository at github. Change what you need and create an pull request with reference to the Arduino reference.

    At some point, I had to re-arrange the libraries though (don't remember which files or which ones) to get all this stuff working. Before that, it wasn't finding the files. Actually, I think this would be a good topic for discussion, to make sure we're all doing it the same way. If we're doing it differently, it might make cross-checking each others attempts more difficult. Also, maybe there's a better way than the brute-force way that I did it.

    If anyone has interest, I can post how my libraries are currently structured. If nothing else, it would be a starting point for discussion on what to do (or not to do).

    It hasn't been easy, I'll grant you that. I get the impression d00616 probably does most of his work in Linux, and so some of the disconnect with the Windows IDE probably stems from that. Once we get the basics ironed out, though, I expect things will go more smoothly. In fact, I think we're almost there. A lot of the work for sleeping, measuring source voltage, etc., has already been done, which is far better than starting from scratch. And there's even example code, which helps tremendously.

    Good news! Interestingly enough, the MockMySensors sketch seems to work fine when I load it onto the Ebyte. What a relief! So, I may try hijacking that sketch to convey voltage measurements instead of the BatteryPoweredSensor sketch that mysteriously hasn't been working on my Ebyte modules.

    The Nordic SDK is more complete than Arduino-nrf5 at the moment, but there is no compatibility with MySensors.

    The good news, with SDK 13 the 'Nordic Semiconductor ASA' License was changed. The old ASA was the reason for me to rewrite the complete ESB protocol. Now the license is much less restrictive. I think now the way is open to integrate SDK code into arduino-nrf5 or provide SDK based arduino-libraries.

    I can't change the way of Windows driver handling, but when there are Windows specific issues then they bust be fixed.

    You mean way more complete every thing is accesable there and there is an example for everything and I didn't use my sensors anyways

    No. I mean if you want to use the Nordic MCU with BLE and you want to access the whole hardware without developing drivers, then the Nordic SDK is an option. For special requirements like tone() you have to develop your own routine for Arduino or SDK.

    If you want write code which is compatible with other Vendors or want use MySensors then the SDK isn't the best choice.

    The arduino-nrf5 targets to provide the Arduino language. I think this is mostly complete. MySensors brings additional support for enhanced pin output modes and the random number generator (no SoftDevice support here).

    Accessing the internal MCU hardware must be added via Arduino libraries. With the new SDK license I think it's possible to put parts of the SDK into libraries supporting Hardware which is not specified in the Arduino reference.

    If you want to develop BLE applications with portable code, there are open source implementations like http://mynewt.apache.org/ which are designed to be portable.

    Good news! The hwCPUVoltage() function measures the Vcc voltage on the Ebyte module in millivolts. I'm able to send that as a barometer reading using the mocksensors sketch, and it arrives all the way into Domoticz, where it is logged and graphed. So, obviously I need to streamline that a bit, but the proof of concept works. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Hero Member

    Quantization error on the hwCpuVoltage() function appears to about 14 millivolts, which is a nice little improvement over the atmega328p. Measurement accuracy appears to be well within those bounds.

    Next step is to measure voltage on an analog pin using an AnalogRead. Not sure if the reference voltage is Vcc (as it typically is with the atmega328p) or something else for those measurements.



  • Given new Arduino Primo contains a buzzer connected to nrf52, we might expect tone() function to be compatible with nrf52 very soon

    Strangely, if I do, say, analogRead(A4) on the nRF52832, all I get back is a 10-bit number, not a 12-bit number. i.e. the number never exceeds 1023. That can't be right. Should I be using a different function call to get the full 12 bits on the nRF52832?

    @mfalkvidd said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    @NeverDie looks like you need to call analogReadResolution first https://github.com/sandeepmistry/arduino-nRF5/blob/425e719af8d85b543def01e49a6ef4048525dc59/cores/nRF5/wiring_analog.h#L74

    Thanks! That did the trick. Calling analogReadResolution(12) once in Setup() routine, I now get back a 12-bit number (i.e. up to 4095) thereafter when I do an analogRead(...). ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Hero Member

    So, just did the experiment, and here are the results. Supplying 3.3v to the Ebyte Module, a voltage of 3.0 volts on A4 yields an analogRead(A4) of 4095. Less voltage on A4 yields a lower number.

    So, generalizing, I suspect that the reference voltage for analogRead() is Vcc-0.3.

    So, you either know Vcc, because of a voltage regulator or something, or else you must call hwCpuVoltage() to get what it is. Then, subtract 0.3v from that, and that's the reference voltage which corresponds to an analogRead() return value of 4095.

    I just did a quick and dirty measurement on the current consumption of the nRF52832 Ebyte module during sleep, and it measured 10 milliamps. I measured it using a uCurrent Gold. That's very high current for most battery powered applications. Can someone else here please measure it also and either confirm or refute?

    I invoked sleep with this from the mocksensors sketch:

    	wait(SLEEP_TIME); //sleep a bit
    

    Perhaps there's a way to invoke a deeper sleep than that where less current is drawn?



  • @NeverDie
    Try

    sleep(60000); // Sleeps for a minute in deep sleep
    

  • Hero Member

    @rmtucker said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    sleep(60000); // Sleeps for a minute in deep sleep

    Thanks! That's a big improvement. I'm now reading 51uA. I did the measurements on the Ebyte nRF52832 module, powering it at 3.3v.

    However, to be frank, that's still rather high compared to, say, an atmega328p with a RFM69 radio, which can have a combined sleep current of less than 1uA.

    Is there anything more that can be done to lower the sleep current further?



  • @NeverDie

    Is that a bare board with nothing connected (Not even serial)?


  • Hero Member

    @rmtucker said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    @NeverDie

    Yes. It's the bare Ebyte nRF52832 module. The only connections are Vcc and GND.



  • @NeverDie

    Theoretically it should be around 1.9uA


  • Hero Member

    Interestingly, I just now tried the same measurement with one of these nRF52832 modules instead of the Ebyte module:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/nRF52832-Bluetooth-4-1-BLE-Module-M4-Transparent-Transmission-SMA-512K-FLASH-64K-RAM-pass-through/32798522093.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.KKA3PF
    and during sleep it measured 6uA. Quite a bit lower!

    Anyone know of a module which tests even lower than that?

    Have you tried sleep and wait for an external interrupt instead of sleep and wake on timer?
    Just in case it is the lfxtl that is causing the problem.

    Haven't tried that yet. Is there a library functional call for that, or do I need to start addressing the registers directly? With this new mpu, I feel like I'm learning to walk all over again.



  • @NeverDie

    Try

    sleep(digitalPinToInterrupt(10), FALLING,0);
    

  • Hero Member

    @rmtucker said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    @NeverDie

    Try

    sleep(digitalPinToInterrupt(10), FALLING,0);
    

    Unexpected result: using that as the sleep invocation, the infor-link module measures at 14ua while sleeping. i.e. worse, not better, compared to the 6ua measured earlier.


  • Hero Member

    Looks as though the infor-link is using an A620N crystal:
    0_1501938448961_infor-link_foto1.jpg
    I tried to see if I could find a datasheet for it, in the hope of learning what its current consumption is (or, at least, should be). Unfortunately, though, I couldn't find a datasheet for an A620N.


  • Hero Member

    Maybe it doesn't matter, because in looking at the actual module I received, it appears to use a different XTAL anyway: A649N.

    0_1501940347295_inforlink2.jpg


  • Hero Member

    Maybe from a current consumption standpoint, not using an external XTAL crystal, but rather relying on the nRF52832's internal resonator would draw less current? I know that's true for the atmega328p. If so, then that's a trade-off worth examining more carefully.



  • @NeverDie

    Sorry i have been a little distracted because my waveshare BLE400 and jlink just turned up.
    Took a little time to get it running but i loaded up the mockmysensors sketch with all the sensors un commented and pow all 30 odd sensors showed up in domoticz which made me chuckle.
    Anyway post your sketch for the consumption testing and i will put it in and see if it works on my board.
    The only problem is i can not unplug it from the Ble400 because i have no way of connecting wires to the core board because of the smaller pitch pins.

    I selected the board "Nordic nRF52832 DK" in the board manager.
    You'll need a separate serial gateway running for it to communicate with, or else it will never get to the section where it sleeps.

    @rmtucker said in nRF5 Bluetooth action!:

    The only problem is i can not unplug it from the Ble400 because i have no way of connecting wires to the core board because of the smaller pitch pins.

    For the current measurement, just program it with the above sketch on your Waveshare, then unplug your module from the BLE400 board and power it using a GND dupont wire and a Vcc dupont wire connected through your uCurrent Gold, or whatever it is that you're using to measure current. I should think that would work, wouldn't it?

    alt text

    Or do you only have the main board without the smaller plug-in module?

    It actually looks like a nice setup.



  • @NeverDie

    When you unplug the little board it only has 1.27mm spaced pins and they are not standard dupont size so shy soldering to them which would mean i could not plug it back in to the BLE.
    Anyway i am only using a crappy multimeter and with it plugged in and running your sketch i am getting 140uA but i will find a way of unplugging it so hang fire.


  • Hardware Contributor

    @rmtucker you could try to just solder 2 tiny wires on top of the board for vcc and gnd pins so you don't mess with the connectors for plugin it back on the main board ?


  • Hero Member

    @Nca78
    Agreed. It sounds as though the bigger problem is going to be his crappy multimeter, if that's all he has. Maybe a good time for an upgrade?



  • @NeverDie
    Ok with my crappy multimeter i am getting 4-5uA with just Vcc and Ground connected.
