COSMIC ZAP debugger connecting to M68KIT912DP25eva board

Started by jo_wan_soo May 30, 2005
We have recently purchased Freescale M68KIT912DP256 ev board for
applicatoin development. By the request of the customer, we were asked
to use COSMIC/ZAP cross compiling tools instead of Metrowerk's
Codewarrior for sw development. We were able to compile and link
COSMIC's sample project file , however, when opening ZAP debugger to
download the built .h12 file to ev board's flash, ZAP would disappear
in the middle of the downloading. Furthermore, connecting ZAP to ev
board (DP256/9s12xx256), then do flash->program/erase flash, choose to
erase any flash block also cause ZAP applicatoin to crash ! Has any of
you out there experience similar problem ? Freescale M68KIT912DP25eva
board comes with Metrowerk's Codewarrior for sw development, we have no
problem to build/ run /download codewarrior's built executable to the
ev board, so it proves that there's nothing wrong with the board or
connecting BDM cable. Any comment or hints would be greatly
appreciated ! Joseph Su


I have used Cosmic ZAP with a parallel P&E multi-link adapter working from
out of the box since day one for a long time now. Make sure you selected the
right adapter and settings for your target in the setup tab on your ZAP
application.

Well, on ZAP window, there are only 2 target boards choices
(DP256/9s12xx256) that is applicable to our eva board and we've no
problem connecting to the board, it just happened that if we did the
erase/program flash then ZAP disappear. We were using P&E multi-link
USB BDM cable, I saw a posted message on this board that mentioned
having problem with using P&E multi-link USB cable communicating with
M68KIT912DP256 board, but once switch to parallel port cable, the
problem is solved, I guess we will probably have to try with the
parallel port BDM cable then.
