Cant program MC9S12DP256B

Started by Andrew Lohmann March 8, 2005
Hi, I am having difficulty programming a new target board using MC9S12DP256B
processor. This is the first time I have used this particular processor,
but for using it on an axiom EVB, which programmes fine. I have been
using MC9S12E128CPV in an number of target boards successfully.

I use Cosmic C Zap with P&E multilink12. In Zap - Connect I have
selected 9S12xx256, and the BDM connection is made ok. The problem is
that Zap repeatedly reports Error writing to memory...... When I get
through acknowedging the error many times and the flash completes, my
target application seems run ok. After I have reprogrammed a few times
the target application fails to run, althouth the BDM connection is
fine. I made another target board and this seems to show the same fault.
It is as if the flash is faulty.

I have not had this difficulty with any of my other target boards using
MC9S12E128 with Zap - Connect set to 9S12xx128. My circuit is much the
same for both processors, but for pin out, the addition of a reset
MAX803 and pull-up resistor, and VREGEN connected to 5V on the "DP"
processor.

Have I got a doggy batch of processors - seems unlikely, what could I
had done wrong?

I'm new to this, but as a TA for an Atmel based Micro course I've
seen similar problems when students changing chips with different
flash sizes and forgeting to set the development (codevision AVR)
software accordingly. I would check that if you haven't already. Taggart6 --- In , Andrew Lohmann <andrew.lohmann@b...>

Taggart6 I think the settings are fine, Cosmic have looked at the Zap connect,
linker and map file for me. The first time I ran Zap it was not set
correctly. My EVB programmes fine, as does Cosmic's target which they
tried for me since my first email. Also voltages look reasonable around
my target.

correctly. My EVB programmes fine, as does Cosmic's target which they

Additionally (since I sent the email above) I have tried programming an
MC9S12DG128B using code and settings for another target based on
MC9S12E128, but the programming failed repeatedly, but the application
runs a bit (it should not run more than a bit anyway because it is meant
for another target). I conclude that my circuit is at fault, but what
have I missed that is different to an MC9S12E128?

I changed the BDM to a P&E Multilink12 parallel BDM instead of my USB
BDM, and the all three target's program fine. I can understand that my
E128 does not have a problem as its said to have a better BDM interface,
but it is strange that the older EVB seems ok, but not to worry.

I will now need to get another BDM interface cable.
