FC 8.2 + PIC32MZ + USB HID

Post by ronaldlijs »

Hi Ben et al,

Thought of posting this problem here... I've trying for some weeks to get USB HID working on PIC32MZ1023EFE100 without luck. I've tried different things on the batch also without luck...

I've followed the instructions on a Word Document (PIC32 USB Instructions.doc) from 2017 that I found on the Forum referring to Harmony 1.11 (which I found and downloaded - although current Harmony version is 3.x) and Flowcode 7.x (which at the moment its' Flowcode 8.2 I'm using), but compiling doesn't work and well, was just wondering how to get USB HID component to actually work on PIC32MZ and FC8...? Would you have some documentation about this?

Problem is that the Word document talks about FC7 and the FC8 folders are totally different than FC7... :-(

Althought the CAL elements in my FC 8.2 install are under:
C:\ProgramData\MatrixTSL\FlowcodeV8\CAL\PIC32BIT

I had copied the harmony files in this folder. I have copied the harmony files AND the USB files that are under
C:\ProgramData\MatrixTSL\FlowcodeV8\CAL\PIC32BIT
into:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode\CAL\PIC32BIT

And now the first error does not appear any more. However it now complains about MX_MANF_NAME_P32 and MX_PRDCT_NAME_P32, I suppose these need to be "MZ" instead of "MX"?

Anyway, hope this helps as I have no clue how to fix this one...

Any help at all? We are now totally stuck with this, without USB we can't use our hardware :-(

Hi Ben,

Is this semething that can be fixed soon? We have tried many times playing with the batch files and settings to get this sorted without luck :-(

Hi Ronaldlijs

What kind of hardware do you like to connect?
Did you build it?

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

(I've noticed you are a PIC32 user frmo some of your posts)

Linux system... we had this system working flawlessly on PIC16F1454 + dsPIC33EP, we have now migrated to PIC32MZ (FC8 supported) and USB doesn't work at all :-( Bit of a nightmare as we are totally stuck without USB support.

USB HID was the least of of our concerns when we moved to PIC32MZ as we were expecting it to work out of the box.

R

And yes hardware has been built of course. No issues there.

Problem is when compiling FC8 USB HID component, it simply doens't work and errors out.

Hello,

We have made some progress on this and it looks like it's something we can fix. I've not had time to fully sit down and investigate it myself yet so I'll try and do this early next week for you.

Ben et al,

No problem, take your time! I've got Harmony 1.x, 2.x and 3.x components installed on my system so if any testing is needed on my end I can assist too...

Cheers!

Hello,

Yes I've been investigating further. It all works fine for v7 but we had to change the location of the CAL and component directories on v8 which is adding an extra spanner to the works.

Have you installed Flowcode and the compilers in the default locations?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 8
C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode\Common

If so we may be able to easily fix this. If not then we may need to come up with a new way to make this work.

I'm meeting with a collegue tomorrow who has been exploring this problem and has it working on their machine. There are a number of things that need fixing so we will hopefully be able to solve all the issues tomorrow.

Sorry again for the delay.

Right I think we're there now.

I have made some changes to the USB HID and USB Serial components and pushed these to the update system.

You will also need to extract the attached zip file into your PIC32 compiler folder.

https://www.matrixtsl.com/temp/pic32_USB.zip

Finally you need to go into the Build -> Compiler Options menu in Flowcode and create two new compiler options from the default.

In the compiler tab change the strings to the following.

HID
Location: $(compilerpic32)batch\PIC32compHID.bat
Parameters: "$(chip)" "$(srcdir)" "$(target)" "$(family)"

Serial
Location: $(compilerpic32)batch\PIC32compCDC.bat
Parameters: "$(chip)" "$(srcdir)" "$(target)" "$(family)"

Then simply make sure the right option is set to be the default.

Let me know how you get on.

Hi Ben

Ther are many XC32-GCC.exe.
Where is the correct place to copie the 2 folders "batch and harmony"

Hello,

The two folders should be placed just inside the PIC32 folder.

Hi all,

I'm afraid I have not tried myself the new USB HID component on PIC32MZ yet as we ended up using a dedicated PIC18 for extra €2 just for the USB HID communication with the PC...

It would be great to have USB working on PIC32MZ with FC though...

Regards!

We can use PIC32MX here as the circuit will be mostly for interfacing, it doesn't need all the MZ features or power... we just needed CAN Bus, USB and many peripherials...

So I have tried PIC32MX530F128H with the USB HID Component and compilation works fine :D
I will go ahead with this MCU and when the boards arrive will report back if USB HID has any issue. It looks as the issue is with the PIC32MZ devices...

On a side note, we've been using PIC16F1454 for the USB interface as it's a $1 MCU and we interface via serial to the PIC32MZ, works perfectly wellm but it's added cost, another MCU to program, etc, etc.

The issue with this setup and Flowcode, if an issue at all, is that we can only set the Transmit Packet Size to 12:
USB_Packet_Size.jpg
USB_Packet_Size.jpg (11.6 KiB) Viewed 623 times
If we go beyond 12, the program does not compile. Why is this important? Well, for a keyboard like implementation, it sets the amount of "keystrokes" that can be sent simultaneously via the USB stack to the PC. I am eager to try PIC32MX with Flowcode and raise this value to something much larger. I have seen other implementations with PIC32 devices where up to 64 keystrokes can be sent at the same time.

Thanks for your efforts!
