C027_USSDTest fails when running with USB errors

Hello all,

has anyone got the USSDTest program to work from Ublox?

I've downloaded this program: http://mbed.org/teams/ublox/code/C027_USSDTest/

Steps

  1. Compile for the C027 using online compiler
  2. Save th C027.
  3. Open and mount - make sure you type /> sync on Linux.
  4. Restart modem
  5. Run cutecom at 9600 baud and watch error output.

Below is the error messages I see:

Ublox USSD failure on C027

As the output shows it looks like the USB device (modem) is not connecting correctly to the USB hub on the mbed.

Since this is all an integrated solution surely this should work out the box no?!

Question relating to:

The u-blox-C027 is a complete starter kit that allows quick prototyping of a variety of applications for the Internet of Things. The application board has a MAX-M8Q GPS/GNSS receiver and ...

I think the example works: You can see the result of the USSD command: "0393720140664"

Ooops!

Do you know why there is an error reported by /USBHost.cpp ? Even once the USB host controller identifies the device there is no further output. This log shows what I see once all libraries are updated.

USB Enumerates the device but comms stops

The above log happens most times I try. I'm still not sure why the failure happens - it's 9 fail, 1 good at the minute. I'm in good coverate (Vodafone HQ!) and on the GDSP platform (Vodafone's M2M platform) and it works fine on my other test devices.

What things can I do to help in debugging this?

Kind regards, Nicholas

I am guessing you need to add a delay between powering the module and connecting to it with USB. The modems usually need about 3 seconds to be ready to communicate over the interfaces. Try adding a delay/wait call.

The usb stack behaves different with each release, guess it is still under development.

Michael,

can you please try and run this small test program and tell me what you get on your device?

http://mbed.org/users/nherriot/code/C027_USSDTest/

It's very simple and just has a few wait statements. This casuse the whole stack to freeze. I don't even see debug statements now. I'd like to see your output. I get:

You need to indicate to the modem that you want to use USB with a call to mdmUsbEnable(true).

    printf("Starting USSD test on Ublox C027, first calling mdmPower for the modem \n");
    printf("Waiting 15 sec for modem to settle after power on...\n");
    c027.mdmUsbEnable(true);
    c027.mdmPower(true);
    wait(4);
    printf("Creating modem object...\n");
    UbloxUSBGSMModem modem; // for LISA-C use the UbloxUSBCDMAModem instead
    char result[32];
    wait(4);
    printf("\n....wait over!\n");
    printf("Sending %s on USSD channel\n", USSD_COMMAND);
    int ret = modem.sendUSSD(USSD_COMMAND, result, 32);
    
    if(ret) {
        printf("Send USSD command returned %d\n", ret);
    }

    printf("Result of command: %s\n", result);

    c027.mdmPower(false);

My network operator does not understand this request and returns "Service not available"

The strange hex dump is from printf is the USBhost.cpp line 857 where the If should be (#if DEBUG > 3)
