New RFM69 driver error

    Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.
    This report would have more information with

    Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

    Thanks in advance.

    Never seen that error. Did you try to compile for a different arduino? Are you using mysensors 2.2?

  • @gohan said in New RFM69 driver error:

    Did you try to compile for a different arduino?

    It seems to work fine for the Adafruit Feather Wings when selected.
    The error only comes up when I switch the board to the Uno for the ethernet gateway.

  • Mod

    What arduino ide version do you have? What Arduino Boards Definitions are you using? Did you try compiling for pro mini?

  • Hardware Contributor

    hmm, I think there is maybe a little bug.

    I don't remember how exactly works uno/nano ethernet gw in softspi mode. When I tested it, I used hw spi for both.

    Just to be sure, have you modified the gw sketch? (it's good habit, for helping, to post the problematic sketch so we can check defines).

    If that's the case, that

    could you try to change two lines in the following file:

    • path is your Mydocuments\Arduino\libraries\Mysensors\drivers\rfm69\new\RFM69_new.cpp

    It's quick&dirty (not digged for a cleaner solution), but you just need to hack 2lines, for a simple test.

    Line 46, change:

    #if defined (SREG) && !defined(SPI_HAS_TRANSACTION)


    #if defined (SREG)	&& (!defined(SPI_HAS_TRANSACTION) || defined(MY_SOFTSPI))

    And finally, line 50, change:

    #if defined (SPCR) && defined (SPSR) && !defined(SPI_HAS_TRANSACTION)


    #if defined (SPCR) && defined (SPSR) && (!defined(SPI_HAS_TRANSACTION) || defined(MY_SOFTSPI))

    This should compile, I have no idea if it will run ok as I have no time to prepare a test setup for the moment.

    Please tell if it's ok or not. I hope this will help

    Arduino: 1.8.5

    @gohan said in New RFM69 driver error:

    What Arduino Boards Definitions are you using?
    Arduino AVR Boards 1.6.20 (for my Uno with W5100 Ethernet shield)
    Adafruit AVR Boards 1.4.12 (for the Feather boards 32u4)

    @gohan said in New RFM69 driver error:

    Did you try compiling for pro mini?
    No as i don't have or use Pro Minis

    It does compile for my Nano sensor just fine.
    So far the error's only occurred when trying to compile for the Uno.

  • Hardware Contributor

    I think it happens because of the softspi define, in the w5100 ethernet gw sketch.

    could you try my test above please ?

  • @scalz
    Your modifications seemed to have resolved the issue.

    Also I've made this modification to MyTransport.cpp so it resets the radio on init:

    void stInitTransition(void)
    	#if defined(ADAFRUIT_RFM69)
    	pinMode(9, OUTPUT);
    	digitalWrite(9, HIGH);
    	digitalWrite(9, LOW);

  • Hardware Contributor

    reset is already implemented in rf69 driver (see here )
    in your sketch you just need to define it like this

    #define MY_RFM69_RST_PIN  your_reset_pin

  • @scalz
    I've updated my sketch to include that for the new driver. Thank you.
    I had to use that mod for the older driver.

  • @scalz Trying to update all my nodes to the new driver, getting this on the gateway now:

    3 TSM:INIT
    4 TSF:WUR:MS=0
    5 RFM69:INIT
    11 RFM69:INIT:PIN,CS=4,IQP=2,IQN=0,RST=9
    116 RFM69:PTX:LEVEL=5 dBm
    122 TSM:FAIL:CNT=1
    124 TSM:FAIL:DIS
    126 TSF:TDI:TSL
    128 RFM69:RSL

    Same sketch as previously posted (with RFM69 verbose defined for more info). Any ideas?

  • Jumped the gun on a "fixed" post 😞

  • I have the same error as @firstof9. I have tried all the combinations of arduino (uno, nano) and rfm69, rfm69hw and node, gw sketch and nodemanager... but always got this SANCHK FAIL error...

    I solder all rfm69s to nrf2rfm69 converter by @tbowmo

  • Hardware Contributor

    If i understand it well, i think firstof9 issue is solved.
    Regarding yours, please post more infos else we can't help much.. : hw used, sketch so we can check your defines&code, logs..

    Note: it is not recommanded (explained in mysensors docs) to use rfm69 which is not 5V tolerant (3.6v max), with uno/nano which are 5v signal levels boards (SPI is running 5v). For this you would need level shifting board.
    Maybe your modules are not dead because of these tests but better be careful.
    To be sure, about your modules&sketch, you could try with arduino mini pro 3v/8mhz boards.

    SANCHK FAIL means you need to check wiring or change module

  • @scalz thanks for advice... I connect modules like sheme on mysensors and watch only for Vcc to be 3V. I try with NodeMCU for gateway and pro mini for node and modules are OK. I use NodeManager for sketches.

    But I have another problem. If I use on both (GW and node) rfm69 the range of connection is about 10 -15m trough the wall. So I try to extend range with use of rfm69hw. If I use both hw modules there is no connection even nodes are one by another. If I use one ordinary and one hw module, the range is max. about 1m.

    Node is connected through FDTI and NodeMCU is on USB.

    For node I use :

    // RFM69 radio settings
    #define MY_RADIO_RFM69
    //#define MY_RFM69_FREQUENCY RFM69_868MHZ
    #define MY_IS_RFM69HW

    //#define MY_RF69_SPI_CS 10
    //#define MY_RFM69_ATC_MODE_DISABLED

    And for GW same as this except without MY_IS_RFM69HW.

    Any sugestions?

  • Hardware Contributor


    It could also be

    • bad antennas: what's your antenna ? in case of "wire" antenna, what kind of wire do you use? It needs to be one solid core, 86mm for 868mhz.
    • power supply too. maybe not enough beefy ftdi on your node, when you increase distance and need more power to transmit.

    you could eliminate power supply point, by replacing it with 2xaa battery, or any other batt as long as you keep your vcc 3.3. it would provide a more clean power supply

    Maybe you could upload a pic of your gw and node assembly, in case we see something.

    If everything is ok, then i'll recheck hw&sw here, but i can't tell you when for the moment.

  • @scalz Negitive my issue persists using the new driver. I've had to revert back to the old driver to get around this SANCHK FAIL. Same wiring same radios using older driver work perfectly fine.

    I read some where that the issue is resolved in beta version of 2.2.1.

    @firstof9 said in New RFM69 driver error:

    I've updated my sketch to include that for the new driver. Thank you.
    I had to use that mod for the older driver.

    Why did you say this 4months ago? Does it mean you got it working with new driver at a moment?
    Then 3months later, you said you got hw sanity check error. What has changed?
    Maybe, have you updated lib and get again your initial problem??

    On other side, (if i get things right), nightbodom has no more sanity chech error but range issue now..

    Inconsistent details with hard to follow debug 🔮 , unfortunately no time actually. I'll take a look later.

  • @scalz Sorry, your changes fixed my OP problem with the compile errors. I forgot to follow up noting the TSP INIT fails and switching back to the old driver 😞
