I'm facing a problem of the reconnection of my TI Delfino F28379D Launchpad:
I'm building a model which inputs external data in order to control it (control loop is not done yet in the attached model). The model should work stand alone.
From time to time I want to connect it to my laptop to transfer data via simout as matfiles and progress it in Matlab. Therefore I usually build it once at the beginning with 'Monitor and Tune' and afterwards 'Connect' and 'Disconnect' it whenever I need to. This works well for me.
Obviously I don't want to keep my laptop connected to the board all the time. Therefore I'm using an Y-USB-wire to guarentee a permanent external current supply independent of the the data connection to my laptop. Whenever I disconnect and reconnect the USB connection of my laptop, afterwards I can't 'Connect' the model to the hardware anymore. By trying so I'll get the following error message:
Error occurred while executing External Mode MEX-file 'ext_comm':
Failed to connect to the target. A time-out occurred while waiting for the connection response from the target. Possible reasons for the time-out:
a) The target is not switched on.
b) The target is not connected to your host machine.
c) The application for the model is not running on the target. You might have clicked the Stop button. If the Run button is not dimmed, click it. Otherwise, click the Build button, which downloads and runs your application on the target.
Therefore I would need to 'Monitor and Tune' my model everytime I connect my laptop to the board. This would be unfavourable since it will affect my controlling loop in the background. Is there a possiblity to avoid this?
Thanks for your help and best regards
