    FX3 BulkLoop.exe/Streamer.exe ?

    milkfish1227_2635671

      Hi,

      There are a lot of FX3 example code such as USBBulkLoopAuto, USBBulkLoopManual, USBIsochLoopAuto...etc. Does streamer.exe work with all those firmware? How about BulkLoop.exe?

       

      Is there any explanation about how we use those two .exe?

       

      Thanks,

      Dick

          Hi,

           

          You can load USBBulkLoopAuto, USBBulkLoopManual firmware in FX3 and use BulkLoop.exe to test Bulkloop transfer.

          Load USBBulkSourceSink firmware in FX3 and use Streamer.exe to test the USB throughput.

            Hi,

            I just tried to USBBulkSourceSink firmware and Streamer.exe. Doesn't work at all. I have been tried on 2 PCs - Win7 and Win10.

             

            What might be the issue for Streamer.exe to work?

             

            Thanks,

            Dick

              Hi,

               

              1) Did you make any change to your original firmware? If so, can you can you please try with the original firmware?

              2) Are you able to see the streamer device in the device manager? It appears as "Cypress FX3 Streamer Example"?

              3) Are you able to see the streamer device in the control center? If so does it work if you perform the data transfer in the control center?

              4) Is it not detected in the streamer at all or just the data transfer is not working?

              5) Are you able to see this issue in both C++ and C# streamers?

               

              Regards,

                I am using original firmware code without any change and using Streamer.exe from SDK bin folder.

                 

                C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\EZ-USB FX3 SDK\1.3\bin

                  I tried with my CYUSB3KIT-003 EZ-USB FX3 SuperSpeed Explorer Kit.

                   

                  When FX3 is connected to the PC, it is recognized by the Control Center as "Cypress FX3 USB BootLoader Device"

                  If FX3 is not recognized, the device driver may not be installed when the SDK is installed.

                  Select the menu item Program->FX3->RAM to download the IMG file created by EZ USB Suite.

                  GS003190.png

                  Then FX3 is recognized as "Cypress FX3 USB StreamerExample Device"

                  GS003191.png

                  FX3 can be recognized by the Streamer application too.

                  GS003192.png

                  The "Cypress FX3 USB StreamerExample Device" is listed in the "Connected Devices" field.  You can try BULK-IN and -OUT by clicking "Start" button.
