Duet 3 + SBC Connection Issues
jpomo10 last edited by jpomo10
Running into a connection problem when connected to an SBC
(I'm starting a new thread to get more exposure since that thread is getting quite long, and now that my issue seems to be not unique to the Jetson Nano)
I can connect to the Duet via DWC (thermistors and endstops read correctly), but I can't send gcode commands to the Duet (console just hangs forever.)
I've tried this with 3 different SBC configurations with the same result:
1). Jetson Nano (initially)
2). RPi running Raspbian (to rule out any problem with the Jetson)
3). RPi with DuetPi (to rule out any problem with Rasbian)
DSF installed without issues in all cases.
What I have tried:
1). Ensuring correct TransferReadyPin & adjusting SPI frequency in /opt/dsf/conf/config.json (SPI frequency is currently set to 2MHz)
2). trying the above SBC configurations
3). Confirming ribbon cable is connected correctly
4). Swapping to a different ribbon cable
Searching for a cause:
1). Monitoring in Debug mode yields:
jpomo@jpomo-desktop:~$ sudo /opt/dsf/bin/DuetControlServer Duet Control Server v188.8.131.52 Written by Christian Hammacher for Duet3D Licensed under the terms of the GNU Public License Version 3 [info] Settings loaded [info] Environment initialized [debug] Lost connection to Duet System.OperationCanceledException: Board is not available (no header) at DuetControlServer.SPI.DataTransfer.ExchangeHeader() in /home/christian/duet/DuetSoftwareFramework/src/DuetControlServer/SPI/DataTransfer.cs:line 965 at DuetControlServer.SPI.DataTransfer.PerformFullTransfer(Boolean mustSucceed) in /home/christian/duet/DuetSoftwareFramework/src/DuetControlServer/SPI/DataTransfer.cs:line 154 [error] Duet is not available
1). stopping duetcontrolserver via terminal causes a popup in DWC that reads "Operation failed (Reason: Transport endpoint in not connected)" In this case I tried to send M122
- Duet 3 V1.0
- RRF 3.0 (lastest stable)
- DSF on all SBC configs updated through terminal, "sudo apt-get update" etc.
My Config.g generated by the configuration tool (note: my Duet's SD card contains only the sys folder, is this correct?)

@jpomo10 Can you connect the Duet3's USB port to a computer (even the SBC) and get an M122 dump?
I doubt an M122 dump would reveal anything new - as mentioned in the other thread, I think the main reason why this isn't working is because the Jetson Nano cannot communicate with the Duet 3 over SPI (hence the "no header" error message).
If DCS is able to connect from your Raspberry Pi, please share the debug log. To get it, do this on the Pi:
sudo systemctl stop duetcontrolserver sudo /opt/dsf/bin/DuetControlServer --log-level debug
Also make sure there is no microSD card in the Duet 3.

Actually, I was looking for
=== Linux interface === State: 0, failed transfers: 0 Last transfer: 26ms ago RX/TX seq numbers: 22864/301 SPI underruns 0, overruns 0 Number of disconnects: 0 Buffer RX/TX: 0/0-0
from the M122.
BUT I think that you hit it with the SDCard. If there's a /sys/config.g file on it, the Duet3 will operate in standalone mode.

What do you mean....
You have all sys files on the sd-Card?
are you having a physical card in your duet3 board?
If you work with an SBC you should not have an SD Card inserted in your duet-board.
If so, please take it out and try again...

I mean... the SD card would probably explain it. I see what I missed in the documentation now. Thanks for pointing it out.
Thank you for your help on this, aswell! I'm glad it was simple, but I'm sorry to take us around in circles.
Still not working on the Jetson, but I'll adjust SPI frequency as you suggested and see if I can get anywhere.

@jpomo10 always a pleasure 👍
