Hello,

I'm a beginner trying to follow the EtherCAT SSC example provided within the DAVE local library store (example here).

I've gotten to implementing the process_app code which sets the state of the LED and propagates the input data. However, upon rebuilding the project, I get the following build errors:

5383.attach

5384.attach

5385.attach

I've checked the manual pin allocator for the main program (ECAT_SSC_0), and Pin 85 (P4.0) and Pin 84 (P4.1) are not referenced anywhere, nor is P_LED1, P_LED2 nor P3_4. The pin mapping view also indicates that these pins are non-feasible for mapping.

5386.attach

I have tried changing the timer to a CCU8 timer as I've heard this is connected to those pins, but this has not done anything. I've got a feeling I've somehow generated the slave-stack code incorrectly, but not sure how.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi James,

I am not able to access the link given by you - but is the project "ETHCAT_SSC_XMC43" => ?

Have you followed the steps provided in the "Getting Started - XMC4300_Relax_EtherCat_APP_Slave_SSC Example_V3.3.pdf"? Here is the attachment of the PDF => .
This document provides the detailed steps in getting started with the code example. Before proceeding ahead with building, make sure the pre-requisite steps are performed.

Best regards,
Nikhil

HI Nikhil,

Thanks for the response. I can confirm "ETHCAT_SSC_XMC43" => ETHCAT_SSC_XMC43.zip is the project, and have followed the instructions lain out by the V3.3 pdf. Still getting the same issue unfortunately.

Best

Hi James,

I think that the generated sources aren't getting generated properly.
Could you delete the generated files, and then generate code by DAVE > generate code, and then try to build your project?

Hi Nikhil, unfortunately that's also not solved the problem. Is there an example project available that is already configured for the XMC4300 without the declaration issue?
