First question asked Welcome!

I'm having trouble initializing the quadrature decoder resource. I've followed the initialization snippet in the HAL docs, but the initialization fails.

P12_6 and P12_7 are GPIO pins, so it seems like this should work. But when debugging the failure, it looks like cyhal_gpio_enable_output fails when called by cyhal_quaddec_init. Is there anything I'm missing here?

cyhal_quaddec_t rotary_obj;

void rotary_init(void)
{
	cy_rslt_t rslt;
    // Initialize the quadrature decoder object. Does not use index ('pin' is NC) and does not use a
    // pre-configured clock source ('clk' is NULL).
    rslt = cyhal_quaddec_init(&rotary_obj, P12_6, P12_7, NC, CYHAL_QUADDEC_RESOLUTION_1X, NULL,
                              1000000);
    CY_ASSERT(CY_RSLT_SUCCESS == rslt); // init fails here
    // Start the quadrature decoder
    rslt = cyhal_quaddec_start(&rotary_obj);
    CY_ASSERT(CY_RSLT_SUCCESS == rslt);
}

Hi @lh ,
The initialization snippet provided in the HAL documentation is correct. The init failure occurs due to the incorrect pin selection in application code.
P12_6 and P12_7 are GPIO pins, but not all pins are routed to Quadrature Decoder block of TCPWM. That's why cyhal_gpio_enable_output fails when called by cyhal_quaddec_init.

 

Identify the following properties for appropriate pin selection:

  1. Follow the Device Datasheet's Alternate Functionality Pin Mapping Section.
    Look for: peri.tr_io_input[u]: 0 where u is the signal number under ACT #12
  2. Also Check the Schematic file and verify that Pin is not connected to any other peripheral devices. Example: For cy8cproto-062-4343w kit P1_0 is connected to CapSense Button, hence not available for QuadDec Funtion.

(Only the pins satisfying both 1. and 2. are routed to Quadrature Decoder Block of TCPWM)

Example: For cy8cproto-062-4343w kit the Quadrature Decoder supported pins are P8_0, P9_0, P9_1, P13_0, P13_1 …

I have also attached a working example project, do take a look. Here the Pins used are P13_0 and P13_1, this also works with P9_0 and P9_1, also with P8_0 and P13_1.

Hope this answers your query.
Thankyou
