Thanks, that’s what I figured.

Hi Luke,


I don't have an Apgoee, so I can't confirm that it works, but there should be nothing special necessary to enable the servo outputs (you can explicitly disable them by setting USE_PWMx to 0 though).

So I guess some of your gpio pins are dead...


I wrote a small gpio test prog for something similar a while a go (added it to master now), you could use it to test the gpio output:

<firmware name="test_progs">

  <target name="test_gpio">

    <define name="TEST_GPIO1" value="GPIOA,GPIO2"/>

    <define name="TEST_GPIO2" value="GPIOB,GPIO4"/>



That will toggle the gpios with 1 and 2Hz respectively.


Cheers, Felix

Hello all,

Per the subject line, it appears that I've got a couple dead servo ports on
the Apogee I've been working with; servo ports 0 and 3 are both
unresponsive.  I'm confident I have the aircraft configuration file correct
(servo assignments, control laws, etc.) since when I switched over to the
LISA/M, all I did was change the autopilot and IMU defines, and everything
worked correctly.  I also tested the example Apogee airframe, varying the
servo assignments, and confirmed that all the other ports are working
correctly.  I also verified continuity between the MCU pins and the signal
pins on the unresponsive ports.

Is there a trick to enable those ports, or am I probably looking at ESD
damage to the MCU?
