Topic: Arduino Due DAC0 problem (not working) (Read 8459 times) previous topic - next topic


Arduino, which uses the software reset command of the control register (SWRST) never resets the ACR as per Table 45-3.
I agree on this, table clearly says reset status 0x0 , and obviously it's not.
My understanding, based on table 46-38,
Sleep Mode
Fast Wake Up
Normal Mode with 1 Output On (IBCTLDACCORE = 01,
Normal Mode with 2 Outputs On (IBCTLDACCORE =01,
that setting ACR to 0x0 you send all unit down to sleep mode. IBCTLHx most likely control reference current level for S/H circuitry, and daccore explains itself. I can't resist  to drive all unit up, to 30F, setting max bias current for core and two S/H. My mini DSO shows no noticeable difference -).
Code: [Select]
//  dacc_set_analog_control(DACC, DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH0(0x02) | DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH1(0x02) | DACC_ACR_IBCTLDACCORE(0x01));
  dacc_set_analog_control(DACC, DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH0(0x03) | DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH1(0x03) | DACC_ACR_IBCTLDACCORE(0x03));

Some differences regarding DAC0 ...
  • After SWRST, Channel 0 is selected in the MR for data requests (USER_SEL).

  • After SWRST, DAC0 is selected while ACR status is 0x1AA (bits 5 and 7 on with unknown purpose).
    By the time DAC1 is selected, ACR status would be 0x10A as per datasheet.

  • The DAC0 pin serves as a wake-up source for the supply controller (DAC0/WKUP12). By default, DAC1 would not be selected during any wake-up event.

Note from datasheet (29.2.10 Fast Startup):
Important: Prior to asserting any WFE instruction to the processor, the internal sources of
wakeup provided by RTT, RTC and USB must be cleared and verified too, that none of the
enabled external wakeup inputs (WKUP) hold an active polarity.

With ACR at 30F ... could be unchartered slew rate. If it passes, I think it deserves getting some sleep  ;)

10 hours test pass. Probably,  writing 0x3 (DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH0(0x03)) instead of 0x2  has no difference.  
I checked what is arduino IDE using inside analogWrite - it's 0x2.
