Re: Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board

I don't have any report about that, so it would be nice if you try and tell 
me. Very likely it will work, and if not, I don't expect major problems that 
couldn't be quickly fixed by Frank or me.

Ivan Martinez

RE: Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board

Calin,
	I tried the 6 channel version of this board and I was unsuccessful.
You can see from my message I sent out yesterday that I can communicate with
the board but it always goes to -5VDC when I command it. I am not
experienced enough with device drivers to figure out what is wrong. I hope
that someone on this reflector will see this message and look into this
problem for us. 

I will let everyone know the solution when I find one.

Re: Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board

"6 channel version of this board"???. You posted about a DDA06/16, which I 
can't find in the list of supported hardware. Which driver are you using?.

RE: Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board

I am using the cb_pcidda.o driver. The comedi documentation section 5.7
states that the 2 and 8 channels should work and I assumed that the 6
channel should work, too. It is my understanding that the 6 channel version
of this board is relatively new. I have the board specification if you need
them or you can go to www.measurementcomputing.com and download the specs
from their documentation section. 

Is my assumption correct?

Driver for NI PCI 6602...

I'm planning to use the PCI 6602 card from National Instruments 
 <http://digital.ni.com/manuals.nsf/websearch/DD0DBB6404BC139886256721007CF16D?OpenDocument&node=1123_US>
for encoder interfacing. I don't see anything of this kind yet in the
comedi source. Is somebody working on this?

If not, I guess I will give it a try in the next months. Maybe as the first
application of the counter infrastructure that is already in comedi
for some time, but that has not been used until now?

Does somebody have suggestions about how to implement/update/change
the counter infrastructure of comedi, or is the current framework
okay?

The 6602 manual on the web site above doesn't give me register
information... Where would I find that information?

PCIM-DDA06/16 (was Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board)

	I can't tell you, depends on if the hardware and registers are the same in 
that board than in the others supported by the driver. The first thing we 
have to find out, is if that board uses the PLX 9052 PCI controler (it seems 
it does, from the pic).
	As Robert and me developed the driver, all the register addresses and their 
possible bit configurations are in defines at the begining of cb_pcidda.c, 
for example:

#define DIGITALIO_BADRINDEX	3

pci_dev->resources[3] contains the base address of DAC registers

#define DACONTROL	0

Then the DAC control register is in pci_dev->resources[3]+0

#define SU	0000001

This is the octal value that set in DACONTROL enables simultaneous update.

	So next, we have to check if all those defines matches with the 
specifications of the board, or there is any difference. The problem is i'm 
quite busy now, so I can't do it for you. What I can offer you, is close help 
to make the driver work with your board.
	Keep in touch.
	Ivan

RE: Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board


I am not too familiar with your particular board.  Is it marketed as
'software compatible' with the DAS-1602/16?

The fact that you have 6 output channels leads me to suspect you probably
have a completely different register setup for specifying analog output
gain/range settings.  Also the registers that contain the output sample
data are probably totally different too.

Do you happen to have the manual to your board?  Maybe you can help out
Ivan or Frank (or me if they give me permission to hack/desecrate the
drivers.. :) ) by scanning the manual or the relevant parts that describe
the registers?  Then again maybe I can just go to the computerboards
website and see about obtaining the manual to your board in pdf format...

It is also possible that I am completely clueless as to what I am talking
about.. since I don't know too much about these boards and how they
relate to each other from a compatibility perspective.. but at any rate I
would be curious to see the register setup of your board....

RE: Analog output cb_pcidas and das-1602/16 board


Woah.  Yeah chances are that the register layout is probably completely
different (which would explain your troubles with the driver).

I am going to dl the specs now... maybe I can annoy Ivan by submitting a
diseased and ugly patch to get your board working.. hehe :)

adl-6208v, sensoray626, JR3 PCI Force sensor Card

Does anybody use one of the following cards or does anybody know which
driver could work?

ADLink PCI 6208V (AO, DI, DO)
Sensoray Model 626 (AI, AO, DI, DO, Counter)
JR3 PCI Force sensor Card

Is there a simple driver just supporting any PCI-card with DI/O as a
starting point for writing my first comedi-driver?

Thanks

The JR3 website has some code for windows, which can help you in
writing a comedi driver. I am interested in giving some help, but not
in the short term...
