It will raise all flags but only CHN_TRANSMISSION_END will wakeup your thread.

OK, I have a code in a function that sends a packet:

Code: Select all

chEvtWaitAny(EVENT_MASK(0));
eventflags_t pending = chEvtGetAndClearFlags(&cmdListener);
if (pending & CHN_TRANSMISSION_END) palClearPort(GPIOF, CONSOLE_DE);


In fact, after a time of working correctly (wakeup on CHN_TRANSMISSION_END only), it starts to wakeup thread (pass chEvtWaitAny() line) on other flags instead of CHN_TRANSMISSION_END. And from that time I see no CHN_TRANSMISSION_END set from chEvtGetAndClearFlags again.

Why?
How to handle CHN_TRANSMISSION_END correctly?

Try placing a breakpoint where CHN_TRANSMISSION_END is broadcasted.

I got where mistake is: sdWrite() followed by chEvtWaitAny() and possibility for thread to be woken up not by my event only (and pass chEvtWaitAny for no good reason, i.e. with CHN_TRANSMISSION_END not set).

Sometimes it wakes up by unknown reason with flags = 0. It passes chEvtWaitAny(), and can start next sdWrite while actually it hasn't sent previous packet. From this time it gets previous event with CHN_TRANSMISSION_END immediately after sdWrite(), so DE line rises up and falling down very fast.

I gave up at this point and finished by patching interrupt routine, adding hardcoded line for falling DE line down, instead of playing games with events.
I can get fully asynchronous behaviour of DE line such way, and I can do something useful in my thread instead of just waiting for event.

Thank you for helping me!
