22 views (last 30 days)
My device is a Holy Pixhawk 6X, and I see in the support documentation provided by Holybro that Pixhawk 6X only supports PX4 1.13.1 and
later, but I see in MATLAB R2023a that Pixhawk 6X is now officially supported, but its PX4 version is 1.12.3. When I look in MATLAB's Hardware
setup, I found that my Pixhawk 6X's communication COM port(COM4) disappeared (this does not happen in versions after 1.13.1).
What should I do?
Please help me?
Thank you!

The support for Pixhawk 6x is available in PX4 Firmware v1.12.3. Can you elaborate on what do you mean by COM port disappears? When does this happen?

After I uploaded the firmware in the matlab hardware setup page (1.12.3), and then connected the Pixhawk 6X to the computer with the USB cable, the COM port of the I/O processor of the Pixhawk 6X disappeared (the COM port of the FMU processor was normal), but when I uploaded the firmware after 1.13.1 with QGroundControl Then the COM port of the I/O processor appeared!
