PSoC 5, 3 & 1

Hi,

Trying to read ADC values, utilizing the debug function.  But it seems , that I cannot use the add watch button, to read the value from the variable.

I am using PSoC 5LP CY8C5888LT*LP097.

The Code:

include "project.h"

int main(void)

{

    // CyGlobalIntEnable; /* Enable global interrupts. */

    IDAC8_1_Start();

    IDAC8_1_SetPolarity(IDAC8_1_SINK);

    ADC_DelSig_1_Start();

    ADC_DelSig_1_StartConvert();

int8 output;

    /* Place your initialization/startup code here (e.g. MyInst_Start()) */

    for(;;)

    {

      if(ADC_DelSig_1_IsEndConversion(ADC_DelSig_1_RETURN_STATUS))

    {

        output = ADC_DelSig_1_GetResult8();

    }

  //IDAC8_1_SetValue(75);

        /* Place your application code here. */

    }

}

You need to just declare the variable above the main()

Eg:

int8 output;

main()

{

Your application

}

Hi Tamas,

Declare the variable 'output' as a global variable.

Hi again,

I can now add the watchpoint. But unfortunately it does not show the correct input values - from the voltage supply.   From the watch point  I get a value of -37, the reference supply from the psoc is 4.7V.

Below ADC configuration.

Hi Tamas,

If you are not expecting any signed numbers for the variable (negative values), declare it as unsigned integer.

Eg: uint8 output

Hi Bragadeesh,

Better results now. Though, at 1V i am getting a value of 214 ((4.7V/1023)*214 = 0.98V) and at 4V I am getting 96 ((4.7V/1023)*96 = 0.45V). I have no idea why - is because i am using ADC_DelSig_1_GetResult32() at a 10 bit ADC?

I found the mistake, I was using uint8.
