VOXL IO and SDK 1.0.0 on VOXL 2
Hi, I was using SDK 0.9.5 with VOXL IO where I had connected an S-BUS RC and a servo. Now, it seems that the VOXL IO is stuck in standby mode. How can i solve this problem?
I am seeing the same on 1.0.0. Any update on this?
the px4io implementation changed in px4 1.12 to 1.14... SDK 1.0.0 moved to 1.14 and the protocol busted...
We are planning to support SBUS in a SDK 1.0.1 release (as an engineer, I will say it's coming out soon, but I'm optimistic always... so I can't put a date down just yet).
As far as PWM support, we are looking at ripping px4io totally out of the voxl2io board and putting our own FW inside so we aren't tied to px4io at all.
Sorry for the inconvenience here, the support matrix got way to out of control and we are trying to get PWM/RC support back going with voxl2io properly and not use px4io which we can't control...
We can provide updates as we have them, including swapping out voxl2io boards in case you can't reflash in the field.
@modaltb Thanks for the quick response.
We are planning on using the voxl2io module to interface with our sbus receiver. We noticed that the docs said sbus is supported in 1.0.1. We had a hard time updating voxl SDK to 1.0.1. We were un able to get the update via
apt update && apt upgradeso we had to compile the deb from source. Is the 1.0.1 release officially out? also worth noting that in the voxl-suite repo we had issues installing the generated deb and only were able to install it after we removed the
even with the SDK 1.0.1 installed our IO module is blinking blue at 2hz and has a solid orange light indicating no communication to the voxl as I understand.
We can attempt to flask voxl2io, but I am unsure how to perform the flask as the docs just say "Write the 4kb bootloader to 0x08000000".
Swapping voxl2io boards is also an option if you all have something ready to go.
Thanks in advance
@modaltb are there any updates on this?
We are trying to use out Graupner radio with the voxl2 and based on this page it seems like the voxl2 requires the voxlio board to connect it.
Hi @modaltb, is there any updates on this?
@xav04 Can you try loading SDK 1.0.0 and then just updating voxl-px4 to the release candidate for 1.1.0? You can find it here: http://voxl-packages.modalai.com/dists/qrb5165/staging/binary-arm64/voxl-px4_1.14.0-2.0.55_arm64.deb. You will need to set RC=M0065_SBUS in /etc/modalai/voxl-px4.conf
I should have posted this earlier, but I was able to make my IO board work with sbus by building my own version of Px4 based on your guy's master branch. For anyone else coming across this post, @Eric-Katzfey solution should work.
