Cube not initializing with serial device connected

(Oleksandr Chendekov) #1

I found a fault with powering on and initializing the Cube. I have ADS-B transponder (Aerobits TR-1W), and it works well with Cube, but only when it’s powered after Cube is initialized. When it’s powered with Cube, Cube fails to initialize (Arduplane 3.9.11 both ChibiOS/NuttX). I had similar behavior with serial modem (Microhard Pico400) - Cube fails to initialize if modem is already powered on. We fixed this with power-on sequence, but that’s really annoys.

I’m not sure whose bug it is, but if you have any ideas, that would be helpful.

Try using a different serial port, chances are your device is sending information that is holding it in Bootloader mode

But how can it matter? Serial device can boot and sent boot diagnostic to data port… This can’t be normal behavior for bootloader - to stop boot when get data on serial. So you think it’s not a Cube bug, but Ardupilot’s bootloader?

Cube is hardware… it couldn’t care less what’s plugged in…

The firmware responds to what it’s told too

There are no bugs… use a different serial port

All it needs is “! “
That’s it…
