Some problems in umxdot11(tx in Sora 2.0) tx failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • The UMXDot11.exe.ini was set as 

    Protocol = 802.11b.brick
    DataRate = 5500
    PayloadLength = 1000

    SampleRate = 44

    and the dos command was 

    cd F:\SoraSDK2.0\bin 

    dut start

    dut centralfreq --value 5200

    dut txgain --value 0x1000

    umxdot11 tx

    But the result is "tx failed"

    And I have checked the codes in F:\SoraSDK2.0\src\bb\UMXDot11 and found 

     HRESULT hr = SoraURadioTx(TARGET_RADIO, TxID);
        if (FAILED(hr))
            printf("[dot11b:tx] tx failed\n");

    I guess that the API SoraURadioTx was not successed. But in Sora SDK 1.6 ,it can be used successful. I don't know why.

    Hope to reply..

  • Could you provide below information for our diagnosis?

    1. What is your hardware? Single radio RCB board or Sora MIMO kits?

    2. Could you output the SoraURadioTx return value?

    3. Could you completely reboot the PC and reset the RCB board and the radio, then try again?

  • Sorry to reply too late.  

    1 Only single radio RCB board,not Sora MIMO.

    2 I have tried to add printf sentence in the code and built it using WDK,but Iwas failed I could not get the return value.

    3 I reset the RAB and restart the PC,it was still failed.

    By the way,I used it successfully only once before I posted the message,but the throught is very big.

  • I just installed SoraSDK2.0 and ran UMXDot11.exe, it can work successfully.

    this is  my operation:



    Protocol = 802.11b.brick
    DataRate = 5500
    PayloadLength = 1000

    SampleRate = 44


    command line:

    dut start --radio 0

    dut centralfreq --value 5200 --radio 0

    dut txgain --value 0x1000 --radio 0

    umxdot11.exe tx

    It can work normally!

    I think you'd better make sure the radio has been started successfully after you typed "dut start --radio 0".

  • Plus: my hardware environment is single radio RCB board. In previous version Sora needn't dut start before UMXDot11.exe, but in SoraSDK2.0, this is neccessary. And in single radio RCB board the default radio is "radio 0'.

  • Thank you. I have tried as you said. It could send frames the first time. But it send more than 50000 frames one second,about 380Mbps. It was the same as the time I ever succeed.But it was not normal. And then it could not used. This is the information.I input the command and always show  Ret :0x00000000

       [iNFO] Mode :TX

       [INFO]Protocol: 802.11b

      [dot11b:tx] tx buffer: 002e0000

     [dot11b:tx] tx buffer size:00200000

     [dot11b:tx] Gensignal return 00000000

     ....    Signal bytes = 145664

    ....  transfer, h=80050003,id=0

    ..... Tx out.

    Clean user ext

    I guess the radio was not started successfully. Maybe Something wrong with the HW driver or the hardware. When I use umxsdrbrick adhoc mode,the frame send very  very slowly.

  • I can get some information from your description.

    a. I think it's not the reason of radio, which should be started successfully.

    b. "hr=80050003", you encountered the problem that you failed to transfer from PC to RCB.

    So I doubt if your PC's PCIE could support so high speed?

  • Sorry to reply so late. I think my PCIE could support high speed like 12Mbps,for example Iperf test on SDRminiport Driver .  But displaying 380Mbps is wrong,because it is not normal.

  • Hi,

    Could you provide more information of your PC, i.e. what is the motherboard?
