Author Topic: [FT4232] FT_GetQueueStatus returns non-expected number of bytes in receive queue  (Read 858 times)

Hi, all!

I'm using FT4232 for JTAG. I'm using opcodes 0x39 and 0x3B for data in.
I'm expecting 9216 bytes (9KB) of data but the number of bytes in receive queue FT_GetQueueStatus gives me varies each time.
Once it's 9100, other time it's 9180 etc. Rarely I get the expected value.

What may be the issue? I tried to use smaller chunks, but still get incorrect values...

Would be glad for any help!

Found a solution by reading the buffer in loop until expected number of bytes is received.

Code: [Select]
while (totbytesread < 1024 * 9) {
do {
ftStatus |= FT_GetQueueStatus(ftHandle_A, &dwNumOfBytestoRead); // get the number of bytes in the device input buffer
} while ((dwNumOfBytestoRead == 0) && (ftStatus == FT_OK));

ftStatus |= FT_Read(ftHandle_A, mf_buff, dwNumOfBytestoRead, &dwNumOfBytesRead);
mf_buff += dwNumOfBytesRead;
totbytesread += dwNumOfBytesRead;
