Core 1 panic'ed (IllegalInstruction) before importing anything!



  • Hello, everyone,
    I have a Wipy device (W01) running into the firmware Wipy 1.20.0.rc11,
    I was testing the stability of the system by restarting it every 5 secondes.
    And sometimes before importing anything, I receive this message , explaining me that I have made a IllegalInstruction.
    The error:

    rst:0x7 (TG0WDT_SYS_RESET),boot:0x13 (SPI_FAST_FLASH_BOOT)
    configsip: 0, SPIWP:0xee

    The code :

    print('------ BEGINNING ------')
    from machine    import Pin, UART, SPI, RTC, ADC, Timer, reset
    print("Main.py Machine OK")
    from time       import sleep, time, gmtime
    print("Main.py Time OK")
    from pycom      import nvs_set, nvs_erase_all, rgbled
    print("Main.py Pycom OK\n------ END ------")
    reset()
    

    Thank you for everything.

    Hi,
    I believe you are experiencing the same issues as discussed here:
    https://forum.pycom.io/topic/5765/loadprohibited-core-panic-when-initialize-wlan
    Can you review the discussion?
    There are of course slight differences between the antennas etc. on the boards (manufacturing tolerances etc) and doing a full erase using the update firmware tool might help in that regard.

    Let me know!



  • @Gijs
    I have this problem after importing the WLAN class from network
    Moreover on other cards I have no problems.
    Would it be a manufacturing defect ?



  • @Gijs
    I upgraded the Wipy to the latest , and I see the most of time a LoadProhibited error

    Only 1 device shows me these errors after an average of 10 restarts
    We assume here that the device must have overheated, or that a component of the device is non-functional.

    Did you try updating the firmware to the latest version? I do not think overheating or malfunctioning components will cause this problem.

    I did this in the past but these firmwares are not stable
    But nevertheless, I will try to update and see the difference between these 2 firmwares.

    Can you elaborate?

    I did the test on 3 different devices.
    Only 1 device shows me these errors after an average of 10 restarts
    We assume here that the device must have overheated, or that a component of the device is non-functional.

  • @Gijs I have this problem that only on 1 component.

    Hi,
    When I try to reproduce your error, it does not print the whole message,

    I believe it has something to do with the order of instructions, when I include only a little delay using sleep_ms() it does print everything.
    Now I still cannot reproduce your error however. Have you tried updating the firmware to the latest? (1.20.2.rc10)
    Let me know!



  • I add that this event only acts on a single chip which has probably been too heated
