Because you are using JTAG mode. Use serial programming.
JTAG mode uses for access to FPGA memory directly. Our goal - to flash dedicated EEPROM memory.

I get this error with or without bootloader mode when I try Add File.
I am using altera 15.0.
Intel 18.1 has a problem which I have raised with Intel - libpng12 is what it's looking for but all recent distros have libpng16 and the libpng12.deb won't install on Ubuntu 19.04. Building and installing libpng12 from source, it complains about another library.

Hello, Sid
It looks like the bootloader was accidently spoiled.
You have to write bootloader.pof manually with byte blaster and Quartus.
If something went wrong you need to keep the power of the device and the bootloader will work inside the FPGA. If you did a reset and no bootloader in EEProm - this is crash the system and you must return bootloader to EEPROM manually.

I selected slot 0 and used Odyssey_BL_2.1/Bootloader.rbf
As it complained of a timeout it either didn't erase slot 0 or it partially erased slot 0 and timed out.

Yes, it is correct. But before change the bootloader by the same method with using bootloader 2.1 .rbf from this topic, flash to zero's slot.

New firmware flash to needed slot 1 to 3.

I do not have a direct connection, it is connected to a 16-port Gigabit switch.
It finds the device but times out during erase.
Increased one timeout value to 4 seconds, powered off and it won't power on.
Removed front panel, pressed the power on switch -- The Green LED's are on but no LCD display. So the Green LED's will go ON/OFF with the power switch, the solid Green on the Ethernet also comes ON/OFF but the IP address is not found.
I don't understand what is happening.

 # grep timeout ./BootLoader_2.1.pyw
            sock.settimeout(1)# Waiting for reply
            sock.settimeout(4)# Waiting for reply
    sock.settimeout(12)
        sock.settimeout(2)# Waiting for reply

Hi David,
Checking the procedure for upgrading is correct.
1. Power up in Bootloader mode.
2. ./BootLoader_2.1.pyw    (Address of my ODY-2 changed to 192.168.10.89)
3. select Odyssey_2_1.20_ANP.pof as the programming file.
73 ... Sid.

Small update our bootloader to 2.1 ver.

Improved stability, "FPGA ERROR" message on the display when FPGA did not started, possibility to make a reset device after change a firmware by one-click-button.

The MCU firmware update is desirable but id not necessarily.

Sorry, rbf file is here

New firmware 1.20 ANP for Thetis 2.6.7

David Fainitski
 
Edited

Hello, people.
There is new firmware based on the latest 12.0 firmware for Angelia (K5SO is autor).
It should to work fine with new version of Thetis 2.6.7

Link for downloading Thetis - https://github.com/TAPR/OpenHPSDR-Thetis/releases

Unfortunually, ATU control still does not work in this version too.

Thetis does not set General Packet byte 58 bit 1 when you push down Tune button in Thetis.

The Tune signal was commented in K5SO verilog code.

So as is. I can not to do nothing with this.

Tell me know if you will find mistakes. This is only beta version.

Re: sourcing Ody components

Marc olanie
 

Thank you David. That was not obvious 😊

 

That’s clear now. I used to protect my receivers with such a trick when I was SWL… many years from now

>The bulbs located close to RF connectors ADC1 and ADC2

 

I was trying to locate them using the pictures of you blog… I spot the location  on the pcb, on the left side of each SMA.

 

Tnks again. Be sure I’ll ask further stupid questions, as long as I don’t have the whole picture in my brain.

Hello, Mark
These two bulbs work here like fuses.
If 100W from transmitter would go to RF input, the bulb will burned.
Or, if power level will be around 20-50W, the bulb will to glow.
You can short bulb's socket but if something will go wrong you will forced to change more other components, much more expensive.

The bulbs located close to RF connectors ADC1 and ADC2

Re: sourcing Ody components

Many thanks Christian

 

Great news… I think I already have a bunch of such small I2C driven Oled displays in my junkbox.

 

About the bulbs, my question was not concerning the sourcing  (it’s written in the BOM anyway), but its function. Where is physically located this bulb in the rig ?  what is it used to ? If it’s a simple light, a white LED would probably be enough (and I’ll never have to change it in the future) .

Hi happy SDR users

I'm begining the "component hunting game" for my Ody 2... I'm afraid it won't be the only message of this thread. 
- Which kind of Oled display (ref if possible) do you use, as this device is not in the BOM 
- Who knows the location, utility and function of these mysterious "bulb" ref CM8097 we can see in the BOM ? I didn't used such components for more than 35 years (excepted for a demo of a Wien bridge oscillator)

Odyssey 2 SDR

dlwaddel@netzero.net <dlwaddel@...>
 

Is there any interest in Odyssey 2 kits?

I would propose having boards made, all the 17 or so QFN and the BGA components installed. All the other SMT components can be hand soldered. I could do a bulk buy of parts and put them into kits.

I have no idea what the cost would be. I know that when I priced all the parts to complete one of Davids partially assembled boards together, I cam up with about $550, so I expect the cost of a kit would be a little higher due to the cost of having the QFN and BGA parts installed by someone with the equipment to do that.

If interested in a kit, please let me know at dlwaddel@.... If there is enough interest, I will investigate further.
