Guru Meditation Error: Core 1 panic'ed (Cache disabled but cached memory region accessed)

Postby MinePro120 » Tue Sep 15, 2020 6:08 pm

Hello there! Here's my code :

#include <WiFi.h>
#include <driver/adc.h>

#define AUDIO_BUFFER_MAX 1600
#define SSID "***"
#define PASSWD "***"
#define PORT 6120 // IANA unassigned port

uint8_t audioBuffer[AUDIO_BUFFER_MAX];
uint8_t transmitBuffer[AUDIO_BUFFER_MAX];
uint32_t bufferPointer = 0;
int sleepCounter = 0;
bool transmitNow = false;
WiFiClient client;
IPAddress host;
hw_timer_t * timer = NULL; // Timer
portMUX_TYPE timerMux = portMUX_INITIALIZER_UNLOCKED;


void IRAM_ATTR onTimer()
{
portENTER_CRITICAL_ISR (&timerMux); // ISR start
int adcVal = adc1_get_voltage (ADC1_CHANNEL_0); // Reads the ADC
uint8_t value = map (adcVal, 0 , 4096, 0, 255); // Converts the value to 0..255 (8bit)
audioBuffer[bufferPointer] = value; // Stores the value
bufferPointer++;
if (bufferPointer == AUDIO_BUFFER_MAX) // When the buffer is full
{
bufferPointer = 0;
memcpy (transmitBuffer, audioBuffer, AUDIO_BUFFER_MAX); // Copies buffer into a second buffer
transmitNow = true; // Sets the value true so we know that we can transmit now
}
portEXIT_CRITICAL_ISR (&timerMux); // ISR end
}


void deepSleep (int sec) // Deep sleep in seconds
{
Serial.print ("[DEBUG/ESP32] Going to sleep for ");
Serial.print (sec);
Serial.println (" seconds");
Serial.flush ();
esp_sleep_enable_timer_wakeup (sec * 1000000);
esp_deep_sleep_start ();
}


void setup()
{
Serial.begin (115200);
WiFi.mode (WIFI_STA);
adc1_config_width (ADC_WIDTH_12Bit); // Configures the ADC
adc1_config_channel_atten (ADC1_CHANNEL_0, ADC_ATTEN_0db); // Connects the ADC 1 with channel 0 (GPIO 36)
timer = timerBegin (0, 80, true); // 80 Prescaler
timerAttachInterrupt (timer, &onTimer, true); // Binds the handling function to our timer
timerAlarmWrite (timer, 125, true);
timerAlarmEnable (timer);
pinMode (LED_BUILTIN, OUTPUT); // Status LED
}


void loop()
{
if ((WiFi.status () != WL_CONNECTED) || !client.connected ())
{
digitalWrite (LED_BUILTIN, LOW);
if (sleepCounter == 30) // Sleeps 30min after 15min of inactivity
deepSleep (1800);
int timeoutCounter = 0;
if (WiFi.status () != WL_CONNECTED)
{
Serial.print ("[DEBUG/WIFI] (Re)connecting to network");
WiFi.begin (SSID, PASSWD);
while ((WiFi.status () != WL_CONNECTED) && (timeoutCounter < 30))
{
delay (1000);
Serial.print ('.');
timeoutCounter++;
}
if (timeoutCounter == 30)
{
Serial.println ("\n[DEBUG/WIFI] Connection timeout");
sleepCounter++;
}
else
{
Serial.print ("\n[DEBUG/WIFI] Connected with IP : ");
Serial.print (WiFi.localIP ());
Serial.print (", at ");
Serial.print (WiFi.RSSI ());
Serial.print (" dBm");
}
}
else
{
host = WiFi.gatewayIP ();
Serial.print ("[DEBUG/WIFI] (Re)connecting to host at ");
Serial.println (host);
while (!client.connect (host, PORT) && (timeoutCounter < 30))
{
delay (1000);
Serial.print ('.');
timeoutCounter++;
}
if (timeoutCounter == 30)
{
Serial.println ("\n[DEBUG/WIFI] Connection timeout");
sleepCounter++;
}
else
{
digitalWrite (LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);
Serial.println ("\n[DEBUG/WIFI] Connected to host");
}
}
}
else
{
sleepCounter = 0;
if (transmitNow) // Checks if the buffer is full
{
transmitNow = false;
client.write ((const uint8_t *) audioBuffer, sizeof (audioBuffer)); // Sends the buffer to the host
}
}
}

,which is a modified version of the code found here : https://www.hackster.io/julianso/esp32- ... mer-52bd7e, that works fine. So, whenever I upload the code to my WeMos WiFi&Bluetooth Battery, the esp32 restarts almost immediately with the following log :

The backtrace is different in each crash. I tried using backtrace decoder with no results. But I found out that if I uncomment the line "WiFi.begin (SSID, PASSWD);" the sketch works as expected. Things I tried based on google search results :
1) Checking the power supply (my board comes with a 18650 battery I could use to power it without using my PC).
2) Using ESP.eraseConfig () (the ESP class did not contain this function though)
3) Using WiFi.persistent (false)

If the crash is different but goes away if you disable WiFi, it probably still is a power supply issue. Can you check the LDO on your WiFi board? There's a known issue where some boards only have a LDO that can deliver 150mA or so, causing the ESP32 to crash when you turn on WiFi.

I did some more testing. I moved the WiFi.begin() to setup() and used only WiFi.recconect to loop(). Works fine now. So I guess it's not power related.
