Sensebender Gateway error uploading the sketch



  • I have a new Sensebender Gateway with a RF69HW , and I am trying to upload the first sketch , and I am getting an error "SAM-BA operation failed" .

    Arduino IDE 1.8.2
    Arduino SAMD Boards 1.6.16
    Mysensors SAMD 1.05

    I have already tried different configuration and always getting the same error , anyone can help me ?

    Sketch uses 34968 bytes (13%) of program storage space. Maximum is 262144 bytes.

    After this error the led D5 (orange) stays ON , and I have to make two reset to have the board available again .

    Have you tried another USB cable?

    What about a simple sketch, blinking LED_BLUE (yes, there is defines for the 5 different LED colors available on the gateway 🙂 )

    void setup() {
      pinMode(LED_BLUE, OUTPUT);
    }
    
    void loop() {
      digitalWrite(LED_BLUE, HIGH);
      delay(500);
      digitalWrite(LED_BLUE, LOW);
      delay(500);
    }
    


  • Hi

    Your example gives the same error , but it loads the sketch , and the sketch runs without problems ... strange for me , this are the messages :

    Sketch uses 9784 bytes (3%) of program storage space. Maximum is 262144 bytes.

    Then I add two simple lines :

    #define MY_GATEWAY_SERIAL
    #include <MySensors.h>

    And the sketch doesn´t load :

    Did you try another USB cable?



  • Yes , 4 different . One doesn't work (the board is not recognized) , the other three give the same result / error .



  • @tbowmo Any new idea?

    @MoeAlmas

    I'm out of ideas, other than looking for bad soldering etc.
