Problem when adding source files for Nios2

Post by naos »


I am using BladeRF micro 2.0 A9 ,

bladeRF-cli version : 1.8.0
libbladeRF version : 2.2.1
Firmware version : 2.3.2
FPGA version : 11.0.0

I am trying to automatically set rx frequency, gain, samplerate ect... when a reception occures. To do that i added new source files in bladeRF_nios folder and to set rx parameters i use rfic_command_write_immed() function. The code compile well and i can generate the bitstream but when i load it on the FPGA i get the following errors:

-Failed to receive Nios2 response : operation timed out
-Failed to read FPGA version : operation timed out

(When i use the JTAG i don't have this problem).

Any advance users of BladeRF here that is keen to point me to the right direction?

looking into the code, it appears that it's throwing an exception, why though?

double bladerf_common::set_sample_rate(double rate, bladerf_channel ch)
int status;
struct bladerf_rational_rate rational_rate, actual;

rational_rate.integer = static_cast<uint32_t>(rate);
rational_rate.den = 10000;
rational_rate.num = (rate - rational_rate.integer) * rational_rate.den;

status = bladerf_set_rational_sample_rate(_dev.get(), ch,
&rational_rate, &actual);
if (status != 0) {
BLADERF_THROW_STATUS(status, "Failed to set sample rate");

return actual.integer + (actual.num / static_cast<double>(actual.den));
