USBHost: DeviceConnectFailed Event


#1

I am using a Panda III (G80) and trying to connect to USB devices. I have successfully managed to connect to a USB keyboard.

I have also tried various other devices but with each one the DeviceConnectFailed event is thrown. Is there something specific which causes this event? I was hoping for the UnknownDeviceConnected and then have to write a handler for the device but no such luck.

I have tried numerous USB devices on my desk but it might be they are too complex (eg a combined usb soundcard and rs232).

The main device I am trying to connect is a midi controller. I have managed to connect it to a USB host shield on an Arduino and get the data stream and was hoping to do the same here.

I even tried connecting a USB memory card reader with a 2GB FAT card inserted and even that triggered the DeviceConnectFailed event.

I am calling Controller.Reset (when the following events are fired; Disconnected, DeviceConnectFailed) as an attempt to resolve another issue but no such luck. I found that once the DeviceConnectFailed event had been thrown, removing the device and reinserting the keyboard caused the DeviceConnectFailed event to be thrown again. Pushing the reset button / restarting the debugger solves it.

If I insert and remove the keyboard (fresh debug session) then all works fine as many times as I do it until I insert a different device.

The code is really simple as it has just come from the samples thus far…


Controller.KeyboardConnected += Controller_KeyboardConnected;
Controller.UnknownDeviceConnected += ControllerOnUnknownDeviceConnected;
Controller.DeviceConnectFailed += ControllerOnDeviceConnectFailed;

Controller.Start();

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have the same behavior on my G80 development board.
In my case, the problem occurs if my USB device is already connected when the development board is powered up.
I perform my tests with a DSLR camera.

If I connect the USB device after booting the development board, there is no problem and the event “UnknownDeviceConnected” is well raised.

But from the moment the “DeviceConnectFailed” event is thrown, I am forced to remove the power for a few seconds for everything to work properly.

I do not encounter these problems with the G400 development board.

Interesting… I’ve just updated the model of the board I am using as I couldn’t do it immediately due to it being my first post. I am using a Panda III which is also G80 based.

@ m1dst -
We will take a look on this!
For now, try to call Reset right after Start()


 GHI.Usb.Host.Controller.Start();
 GHI.Usb.Host.Controller.Reset();

Thanks for your reply. Just tried and it made no difference.

Once the device failed event has been thrown, no USB devices are detected until the unit is rebooted. Always throws the DeviceConnectFailed event.

The bigger problem I have is the fact the USB device won’t detect anyway.

In case it helps, here is a dump from USB Device Tree Viewer.

Language 0x0409          : "Traktor Kontrol F1"


#6

I was imagining some farm implement (Tractor/Traktor) but it looks like it’s this https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/traktor/dj-controllers/traktor-kontrol-f1/ which is still cool, but less agricultural :slight_smile:

@ m1dst -

Don’t try Reset after failed. Try at very beginning right after Start().

And try with USB thumb drive to see if we are on same boat!

With the code below I sometimes get met with “A first chance exception of type ‘System.Exception’ occurred in GHI.Usb.dll” and “An unhandled exception of type ‘System.Exception’ occurred in GHI.Usb.dll”. This happens when a USB device is plugged in and a debug session is started or once the USB is inserted. It doesn’t happen every time. Odd.

I can get a USB keyboard to fire the events and even a USB stick. I can toggle the hardware and all is well.

If I change for a USB microsd card reader the “DeviceConnectFailed” event fires and from that point all hardware (including the keyboard and USB stick which just worked) now start firing the “DeviceConnectFailed”. I now have to stop the debug session, press the reset button and then start another debug session.

As you will see from the code it can’t be any simpler.

using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using GHI.Usb.Host;
using System.Threading;

namespace MFConsoleApplication1
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static void Main()
        {

            Controller.KeyboardConnected += Controller_KeyboardConnected;
            Controller.MassStorageConnected += ControllerOnMassStorageConnected;
            Controller.DeviceConnectFailed += ControllerOnDeviceConnectFailed;
            Controller.UnknownDeviceConnected += ControllerOnUnknownDeviceConnected;

            Controller.Start();
            Controller.Reset();

            Thread.Sleep(Timeout.Infinite);

        }

        private static void Controller_KeyboardConnected(object sender, Keyboard keyboard)
        {
            Debug.Print("Keyboard connected.");
            keyboard.Disconnected += KeyboardOnDisconnected;
        }

        private static void KeyboardOnDisconnected(BaseDevice sender, EventArgs eventArgs)
        {
            Debug.Print("Keyboard disconnected.");
            Controller.Reset();
        }

        private static void ControllerOnMassStorageConnected(object sender, MassStorage massStorage)
        {
            Debug.Print("Thumbdrive connected.");
            massStorage.Disconnected += MassStorageOnDisconnected;
        }

        private static void MassStorageOnDisconnected(BaseDevice sender, EventArgs eventArgs)
        {
            Debug.Print("Thumbdrive disconnected.");
            Controller.Reset();
        }

        private static void ControllerOnUnknownDeviceConnected(object sender, Controller.UnknownDeviceConnectedEventArgs unknownDeviceConnectedEventArgs)
        {
            Debug.Print("Unknown device connected.");
        }

        private static void ControllerOnDeviceConnectFailed(object sender, EventArgs eventArgs)
        {
            Debug.Print("Device failed.");
            Controller.Reset();
        }
    }
}

Ran into this exact issue today using G80 TH module…

Simple Joystick thing. USB Joystick cannot be plugged in during power up or it will never detect, exact same symptoms as this thread (including with suggestion of Controller.Reset())

Is there any resolution to this?


#10

@ MitchT - We do not yet have a fix.


#11

Is there anything any of us can do to help move this forward? Have you been able to repro it or is it stuck in a backlog?


#12

Sigh heh…

Well… I guess I’m going to be using ~16 GPIO today… :dance:

./weller


#13

@ m1dst - We were able to reproduce it.


#14

Yay repro! :slight_smile:

If it helps any, I did notice that my USB 5v is more like 4.3v by the time the G80 takes its share and powers the flightstick. I may try shoving a proper 5V source on there.


#15

Bumpity bump bump.

Has there been any progress?

Is there a GHI board that isn’t completely USB-Host borked that I can throw money at to resolve this?


#16

What happened when you provided a better 5V power source?


#17

@ MitchT - While we were able to reproduce it, we have no work around at this time.


#18

I’ll add that I tried adding a solid, stable external power source and it made no difference to the stability of the USB Host. I’m currently experimenting with rebuilding with an Arduino Due but the experience is nowhere near as nice as VS and C#.


#19

@ John - Well that’s unfortunate.

Is there a confirmed GHI product that doesn’t exhibit this issue? IE: G120


#20

@ MitchT - We do not have a confirmed product at this time.
