I mentioned in my last post that the processing speed of the board has reduced after updating the software. To check that I reinstalled the previous version of ShieldBuddyMulticoreIDE and run the code using float(run time 3 sec). On the other hand the run time for recently released v1.37 was 158 sec (same code using floats only). I think there is some issue with the v1.37 as it is making code slow. Please have a look.
This is strange. Are you sure there are no double floats in the software? The Aurix has built-in single precision floating point units so float operations are very fast. Double float operations are performed using emulation libraries and these are much slower.
We will remove the double float support in v1.38 pending an investigation!
I have just received my ShieldBuddy (UK) and it is also a DC variant and so I have the same problem as Hotz. After reading the posts, I installed the latest version of the Multicore IDE and now the Shieldbuddy is not recognised by the device manager - "unknown device" - it is powered. Hitting the rest has no effect. Help please! NB the shieldbuddy was recognised, albeit wrongly, by the earlier version of the software.
Hi, if the Shieldbuddy is not recognised by the Device Manager it is likely that the DAS driver has not installed properly. This is part of the MEMTOOL Flash programmer. What Windows version are you using?
I am using Windows 10. Should I actively delete the Hitex directory before installing the new version - it doesn't appear in the Win10 apps list so it would have to be brute force? I didn't do this to begin with as I am not sure where the tool chain data etc goes.
