ESP Call Back / Interrupt Issue

Postby lmnewey » Sun Jul 01, 2018 10:51 pm

Hey guys

Before anyone asks "Yes i have searched for a fix" unfortunately I'm quite new to C++/Arduino and a fair few of the details in the other posts confuse me.

so my issue is, i have an ESP32 (TTGO Lora32) I'm using the default SPI for the lora and the flash. I've disabled the on-board display and i have reconfigured the "Hardware Serial(1)" to use pins 34 and 35 for a neo 6m receiver and i have MPU9250 on i2c bus pins 21 and 13. the device is taking position and mpu readings and sending them out to a lora mesh and also over BT to an android app. The GPS and the MPU9250 reads/workload where associated with core1 task and the lora and other work happened on core0. (when i started having issues i moved all the code back to core0)

In my first attempt i had no software interrupts or callbacks and the device would run indefinitely. However recently we went through an optimization and placed a lora receive callback in the code. then it randomly started doing this:

I have tried to install the ESP8266/ESP32 exception debugger in the Ard IDE but its not working :(
i beleive it is the callback causing the crash as the code has all been copied over from the original sketch's, the only fundamental difference is the call back:LoRa.onReceive(onReceive); instead of reading every time the device cycles. like in the example given with the lora send / receive examples.

Is it possible that the call back is being called multiple times, should i be taking the device out of receive mode when responding to the call back so it doesnt call again perhaps ?

Also if anyone knows of any boards with this type of configuration please feel free to suggest, i dont want to have to have this manufactured if i can help it :)

Moving this to the Arduino subforum as it seems mostly Arduino related.

Onreceive is called in interrupt context from a function that is doing a bunch of stuff that also should not be in interrupt context.

Sorry im a noob to this, i felt whats happening on core 1 wouldn't be effected by work on core 0

any suggestions for a work around ?

In ISR function you can do only simple, no time consuming operations. Usually its operation on queue or setting group flag or just changing boolean variable value. Then in main loop you can have if(variable) then do whatever you are doing now in ISR function and what is causing crash.

Ok i set the callback to mark "Received = true" and then the main loop checks if received is true and cycles accordingly.

I will data log it over night and see what happens :) FYI its twice as bad when the BT is enabled. Just an observation i data logged 3 units and even the ones with out a BT client crashed. they just didnt do it as often.

I appreciate the feedback,

Well that worked, atleast it worked for excess of 6 hours. i set it when i went to bed that the call back only toggle received = true then in the main loop it checks if(received){onReceive(int)} and it appears to be working. thanks for the help.... well i hope its fixed i disabled the GPS and MPU for the tests so lets see what happens when i re-enable
