Please check the registry settings for the display.
I have attached a document for calulating the values from the datat sheet
The 'config' value of the display settings set the polarities.
Please see the display settings document for the NetDCU8 from our download area for details.
Did you connect both HSync/VSync and DE to the display? On many displays this doesn't work properly.
25Mhz should be ok for the display.
Please look at the Clock and Sync signals and check if they have the right polarity.
Did you measure the clock? The clock is not freely setable, it is the divided bus clock.
So only 20, 25, and 33 MHz are usable for VGA resolution. Try different LCD clock values until one of these is set, e.g. try 24, 25, 26, and 27 to get the 25MHz.
What is the display resolution? Due to limited internal bus bandwidth only resolution up to 640x480 is supported with full refresh rate.
Try lowering the pixel clock to reduce the refresh rate and see if this helps.
BLUsbDownload() not implemented yet
EbootUSBReadData() not implemented yet
as you can see USB download is not yet available in your EBOOT, so you have to download with Ethernet.
Please provide the EBOOT output if it doesn't work.
The 10 pin connectors on the PicoCOM startinterface have RS232 level and you need a null moden cable to connet to the PC.
See starterkit hardware documentation.
Which baudrate do you use?
38400 is the standard baudrate for F&S products.
You can try it, but the PicoCOM has not so much GND pins, so you can get EMC issues.
All new processors need 5V on the USB detect pin for proper function.
It is not possible to use USB Device without this pin.
The NetDCU14 has 3 serial port, two without and one with handshake signals.
You can configure the handshake lines as an additional port, so you have 4 ports without handshake.
But you cannot have 2 two serials port with handshake.
We only have line-out, no amplifier.
In other projects we used LM4880 and LM4861 as amplifiers.
Do not power the amplifiers with the 3.3V used for the PicoMOD, else you will have noise.
It is crucial to have a clean power supply and to route the analog signals away from all other signals and power supplies.
We don't have noise on line-out.
What are your mixer settings?
Best practice is to set the mixers in the codec to maximum level and adjust the amplifier to the desired volume.
Also the sound files should have a sufficient level.
This gives best results.
The NetDCU14 has no pull-up on this pin, this is wrong in the documentation.
NDCUCFG and debug output are on the same COM port.
You can enable/disable the debug output in EBoot with 'O'
in NDCUCFG you can do iot with 'serial debug on' and 'serial debug off'
The partition for the kernel is too small, you have to change it.
Press 'P' in EBoot, then set size for OS-Image larger than kernel size (e.g. for XIPNKPC4_CORE_CF2_121029.bin set it to at least 20).
I would set it to 25 or 32 if you don't need the space in the FFSDISK, so you can install lager images without repartitioning the flash.
Just press Enter to set the other values to default.
Wait until the flash is partitioned and start the download again.
To change to Windows CE you need to boot into nboot. To do this you need to press 's' in DCUTermi serial connection and power the board.
Then press 'E' to erase the NAND Flash.
Press 'd' to download EBoot. ('Transmit Binary File ...' in DCUTermi).
Then save it with 'f' and reboot.
Now you must enter the MAC address (the serial number of the PicoCOM, starts with 000551). It is on a sticker on the PicoCOM.
If only 6 digits are on the sticker (instead of 12) start with 000551 and add the other digits.
Press 'du' to start the USB download. Load the kernel file with NetDCUUsbloader and transmit it to the PicoCOM.
After the flash is formatted and the kernel is written to the flash you have a PicoCOM with WindowsCE.
Please see attached document für troubleshooting the USB connection on the NetDCU14.
The LVDS version of the PicoMOD7A has no TTL display interface.
These pins are used for HDMI and camera.
Use the LVDS output on the side for your display.
please install lastest NBoot, EBoot and kernel.
Please see the attached PDF for USB troubleshooting.
