I am looking at using the PX4 middleware without the flight-stack on a Nucleo-F429ZI board.
I have created a target board definition and added another ROMFS configuration which has an rc$ file which does a bare minimum to bringup uorb and parameters etc.
This is all working well.
I would like to use ethernet for some UDP communications. Unfortunately I cannot get this to work with PX4 and this hardware. It builds and uploads fine. However, I can’t establish connectivity with ping etc.
I have been able to use a plain version of nuttx with this hardware to successfully use ping and telnet daemons.
I have been able to hack around the av/x-v1 board configuration to run on Nucleo-F767ZI hardware. Again, this allowed me to successfully use ping and telnet daemons, this time within PX4. Unfortunately, this is a different chip target (STM32F7).
I have started to look at the differences between the new nuttx code and what is used in PX4 as it relates to this target (STM32) and network code. I can’t see any significant differences.
Does anyone have any ideas why ethernet should not work with STM32 targets when it does work on STM32F7 targets?
I am still trying to debug this, but I thought someone more familiar might know whats going on.
I appreciate I have left a lot of details regarding the exact configuration etc, I can provide this kind of info if it helps.
