ZCU1275 MTS reference design "ERROR: MultiConverter_Sync 64"

Hello,

I tried to implement the ZCU1275 MTS reference design by following the "ZCU1275/ZCU1285 RFSoC 16X16 MTS Design Getting Started Guide" but when I run the "rftool-mts" program, and select a mode the following error happens:

Thanks for your help.

Do you see any flags being asserted? Fifo overflow / underflow? Did you follow the example design exactly, or did you make any modifications to the clocking? In the past i have seen this error when our MTS clocking guidelines were not followed.

I have found the problem. By printing the metal log I saw that tiles 2 and 3 of ADC and DAC were at the origin of the error. Indeed since only 2 bullseye cable were included in the kit, I couldn't connect these tiles to the clock.

I solved the problem by modifying the rftool-mts source code to ignore theses tiles.

We are experiencing the same issues. Could you please provide some more info on the changes you made to the source code? (screenshots, line numbers, etc.) When you fixed it did it work with just the two bullseye connectors or did you have to connect all 4?

Thanks for the help.

In the Petalinux project, before building the Linux, edit the file ./project-spec/meta-user/recipes-apps/rftool-mts/files/rftool-mts.h and change the value of the macro MTS_MASK. Each bit of the mask correspond to a tile for both ADC and DAC. If MTS_MASK is set to 0xF all ADC and DAC tiles are used. If set to 0x3 only ADC tiles 0 and 1 and DAC tiles 0 and 1 are used.

If you have only connected two Bullseye on connectors J124 and J129 you need to set MTS_MASK to 0x3.
