Hi Jayant,

>From this documentation: http://www.st.com/stonline/books/pdf/docs/14220.pdf, the potentiometer is connected to PC4.

Looking at the IOs definition in: packages\hal\cortexm\stm32\var\current\include\var_io.h, you can sample PC4 using ADC1/14.

#define CYGHWR_HAL_STM32_ADC12_IN14             CYGHWR_HAL_STM32_GPIO( C, 4,  IN, ANALOG )
#define CYGHWR_HAL_STM32_ADC1_IN14              CYGHWR_HAL_STM32_ADC12_IN14

The adc2 test does not log any sampling results. It is used to check that the sampling rate is correct over a period of 10 seconds. The output of your test does not look good. The \0x09 is a tabulation that your terminal is not interpreting (which terminal do you use)? But the result is 0 for all channels, meaning that no samples are read. 

----------------------------------------
Samples expected after 10210 milliseconds: 10210
Samples read (per channel):
/dev/adc00          \0x09= 0

Do you have a way to step into the code? I don't clearly see how the test can complete without reading samples. Line 181 is a loop waiting for samples:

 // Read & count samples
 do {
    cyg_uint32 len = sizeof(sample);
    res = cyg_io_read(chan->handle, &sample, &len);
    if (res == ENOERR)
       chan->count++;
 } while (res == ENOERR);

You can also try the adc1 test which shall read and display the sampled data. I don't own a STM3210e boards therefore can't give it a try.

Regards,
Christophe

Dear Christophe!

Thanks for your support. I have a feeling I am getting closer, but not
quite there yet. So I appreciate your time in helping me out. Now I
have been able to add the adc io, as in the screenshot you sent using
only the cvs code. So I am not mixing anymore ecos-3.0 and the cvs.
But when I run the tests on my stm3210e eval board I do not get the
desired output. The output of adc2 test is shown below. It shows that
no samples have been read. I am also not sure what to make of the
\0x09 stuff before the '=' signs.

My goal is to be able to read the value from the potentiometer on the
board (http://www.st.com/internet/com/TECHNICAL_RESOURCES/TECHNICAL_LITERATURE/DATA_BRIEF/CD00278458.pdf
as shown on page 2/3) and eventually also from the 3 bnc connectors.
First of all, how can I know which input (BNC or Potentiometer) is
connected to which device on which channel? And secondly why when I
try to display values from all channels on both devices I receive
nothing. One of these channels must be connected to the potentiometer
no? The BNC connectors are currently left open.

Hope I can make this work.

Regards,
Jayant
