Hello All

I am using SPI0 for communication and I want to use Chipselect 6 (as in our hardware design).

But in MBD Toolbox the CS is limited to 0-3 where.

How shall I manage/overcome the limitation of the toolbox?

Help is appreciated.

Hello abhishek.kumar@chassisbrakes.com‌,

You are right - this is a limitation that we'll fix. I'll post a patch for it by the end of the week, so you won't need any workarounds; it will work like the others CS work now.

Kind regards,

Razvan.

Hello abhishek.kumar@chassisbrakes.com‌,

I have updated our library so we have all CS present. Can you please confirm everything is working on your end? I have provided here a self extracting zip (like we do for our community patches), so all you have to do is select the root directory of our toolbox - you should be then asked if you want to overwrite some files. If this happens, then the patch is working and the path you inserted is correct. I would recommend you to save  a copy of mbd_mpc574x_ec_toolbox as backup (the old version of our library) - you can just rename it as mbd_mpc574x_ec_toolbox_old. 

Now the CS pins should be dynamically updated (CS0-7 should be present for your part in the Pins tab).

Kind regards,

Razvan.

Dear  constantinrazvan.chivu

The update is good for configuration block, but for the transfer block we only can select til CS_3. (see snapshot)

So it does not solve the problem as of yet. 

Maybe a small oversight.

Hello abhishek.kumar@chassisbrakes.com‌,

You are right - it was an oversight on my part, sorry for that. I'll get back in a few moments with the transfer block fix as well.

Kind regards,

Razvan.
