Congrats! This has been a long time coming, and is highly anticipated.

Hopefully the results will have been worth the wait.

BTW, how many years do I need to have been a member here, or how many posts, before I no longer have to wait days for my comments to go through a Moderator? (Notwithstanding the fact that no matter how many Posts I contribute here, my count always remains at 0.)

Just a wee bit annoying.

Thanks,

- Mark

Your posts should no longer need moderating, the automatic mechanism for switching this after a few posts is broken. Post counts may take a little longer.

CAN decoding is not showing correct message ID

Image
New decoding

Image
Old decoding

The message ID is 0x182 as is shown correct on the old software.
The beta software shows 0x30 40

It looks like the value need to be right shifted 5 bits.

P.S. why is my post count back to 0 ? it was over 40

I haven't had any time to test the Beta yet myself, but I have looked at the Examples, and they are also obviously incorrect. (When I first saw them, I thought they were just "faked".)

Why do I say that? Because many of the ID fields depicted have values such as Ax xx xx xx, and 9x xx xx xx. Which would be pretty interesting to hear how that's possible on a 29-bit Extended ID field. (the top 3 bits of a 32-bit Long are always 0)

So as Benno reported, the bits aren't being shifted into the proper positions. Unfortunately, with a mistake as blatant as that, it throws the rest of the decode into question. E.g., are tricky things like "stuff" bits being properly handled?

Luckily, this is something that should be easily correctable.

Can we have the data file for this capture, then we can run it through in debug thanks

Sorry, sorting out post counts for Mark_O must have cleared some others, updated now.

Martyn,

you can find the psdata file over here.
http://www.ans-net.nl/picotech/20150604-can%20crash%202%20zoomed.psdata

on http://www.ans-net.nl/picotech/
are more traces of CAN logs I made over the last years.

Feel free to test some other psdata files :D

Benno

Hello,

thank you Martyn for this new serial decoding addition.

I work mainly with SPI, I2C and SMBUS (at the moment gaz gauges BQ3060 / BQ24725) and noticed better decoding at low speed (60 kHz clock). Decoding wasn't always correctly done with V6.10 (some missing decoding values), all seem be OK with V6.11.4 beta (PicoScope 3204D-MSO).

So, thank you ! :D

Hi Martyn,

Have there been any improvements that might allow users to create their own protocols? We use three different hardware layers and use the same packet formats over all three.

Are there any plans to allow users to specify some simple rules that would allow the construction and display of entire packets rather than individual bytes/words?

e.g.
Start marker: idle > 200us
Header Length: 12 bytes
Data: everything else
End marker: idle > 200us

I'm sure you've all thought about this before... Viewing RS232/UART data in PicoScope is very cumbersome without a few simple rules to condense a hundred thousand rows in to a couple hundred packets.

PS: How many posts until a mod isn't required to review? 3-5?

Thanks!
Darcy

I will discuss this with the development team and see what they say. Thanks for the feedback, it all helps.

The post counter is broken a long time ago, the have to reset the counting manually if someone asks for it, like you do now.
