Minitoune v2 problem

Postby G4GHD » Mon Nov 20, 2017 3:30 pm

On initial testing with "CheckMiniTiouneDriverAndFilters_V0_3a.exe", all checked out fine except for the NIM and Demodulator detection.
Error message shown was "Write_register function failure".

I assumed that there was a problem with the connections to the Serit, no solder bridges seen, so simply resoldered them in case any pads top-side weren't soldered properly.

Upon testing this time however, it reported "FT2232H has bad device B parameters, use FTprog to reprogram it."
I'm guessing here that I should've removed the module before doing the resoldering and I've either damaged or erased the module?

Any help with this will be appreciated.

Hello,

Unless you still had power on the device when you were soldering, I would think it is unlikely that you would have caused damage, unless it was a static related issue.

Here is a link to the programming of the FT2232H device, it is from a while ago but would think it is still relevant to the current Minitiouner project

Hope this helps

No power on the device when soldering of course, so I guess it was just caused by static leakage.

Module reprogammed and all is working fine now, thanks.
