sorry it was 5months ago; I don’t remember. probably it was just fw update
@alissa.dornbos @nayelyz can you clarify if there’s any difference between
driver:call_with_delay and if there’s any preferred function one should use in drivers?
Sorry for the delay. The team mentioned that both call the same function, however,
device.thread:call_with_delay is preferred because:
devicethread will include the specific device’s info in logging and it’s helpful during the debugging process.
- These functions schedule a function call on a specific coroutine. The driver has its own main coroutine, and then each device has one as well.
- Using the device thread helps us to keep long-running computations or buggy/blocking callbacks off the driver thread so that the whole driver doesn’t get bogged down.
