Re: Dynamic Debugging Tool

If you look in the new default code, there are a few files that have "DDT" appended to them. I think this is the RC side of it.

Can anyone explain this to us? (Dave? This is more than we bargained for!)

Once you download the DDT zip file from the IFI web site, the instructions are found in the zip file (ddt-instructions-revnc0.pdf). After this, all you do is download the FrcCode_default_DDT.hex to your RC and the select the 'Dynamic Debug Tool' from the options menu of the IFI Loader. Now you are connected to your RC from your PC.

This is an awesome tool to use you can even look at variables in real-time. I used it to make sure my relays were working correctly before I wrote code to make them work. The DDT puts you right on the microchip allowing you to access all registers without writing a single line of code. You can also control your PWMs via the PWM Control menu. Im amazed at how powerful this tool is. I remember IFI briefly talking about it last year thanks IFI.

Re: Dynamic Debugging Tool

Check this out - Assumming an OI/RC link and the PC is connected to the program port of the RC, open the DDT, select the PWM Control window, click on the 'Remote Radio PWM update' checkbox, move your joystick (on port1), and watch the PWM data being updated on the PC. Pretty cool!
