Hi there,

The mcp2515 switch mixed example doesn't simulate properly (the logic levels and displays do not seem to be working).
The problem exists in both the offline and the cloud TINA version 11.

The mcp2515 switch (not mixed signal simulation) works as expected.

Thank you,

Hi Stefanos,

I get an "Access Violation" message when I run it and then stop it. When it does run only one 7Seg display is working correctly. My guess is this bug is related to the "VHDL Mixed Mode" issue you experienced with the Clapper example in your other post. Please take the time to report these bugs to Tina Tech Support.

BTW, it's helpful if you post the example sub-folders when asking about an example that isn't simulating properly. This way we don't have to search for the file.  Wink

Thanks,
Chris

Hi,

As a reminder this issue remains unresolved. It seems that with the latest update, both the "mcp2515 switch" and "mcp2515 switch mixed" examples (under the Microcontrollers/PIC directory) are now not functioning.

Thank you for looking into this.

Stefanos, I'm sorry to read that. Unfortunately, unlike open source software / forums the gears of corporate enterprise will turn quite slowly.  I've been waiting for a major update to the help files for many years and many versions of Tina. I think I will be long gone from this earthy existence before that ever happens. That said, my relationship with Tina has always been a love - hate relationship. Despite that indisputable fact Tina DS is still the best bang for the buck (globally) hands down! Which is why I've been renewing my license for many years.

Hi Chris.

Yes, I hear you.

There is tremendous value to some of the most recent features that TINA has introduced (for example Verilog-AMS and SystemC). However, it seems that in some cases even basic functionality can be questionable. In any case, I am not a perfectionist by any means and ANY kind of workaround would make me happy, but I need a tool that can be reliable and predictable!

Besides Proteus and a little bit Multisim (before the NI days), nobody else even comes close to the simulation capabilities that TINA "promises". However, making it work can be a challenge. I am convinced that in some cases it is just a matter of better documentation, which in theory, should be a relatively easy thing to do.

In any case, I applaud the effort and plan to stick with TINA for a while!

:-)
