C5509A core(CPU domain) suspend problem(use HPI multiplexed boot)

Hi,Anyone can help?

I'am debugging a hardware system based on 5509a chip and got a strange problem,it trouble me many days.

My system use HPI multiplexed boot mode(hard set the BOOTM[3..0]),the system clock use a outside OSC circuit of 20M.

The host can access the DSP DARAM very stablely(I test it by writting the test code and then reading it back for comparison many times,and never found a fail),but the DSP can't boot successfully stablely(success ratio is about 50%).

The test program code is so simple,just toggle a outside LED controlled by XF pin:

label: BCLR XF


B label

I connect a emulator to debug the problem.When the dsp fail boot to run,I run CCS tool to connect the dsp,and I found sometimes the dsp halt in bootloader section(rom),sometimes it halt in my simple test program code.The PROBLEM is :On any situation,the dsp core reject to run(use the CCS 'run free' menu command),I inspect the PC register,find that it never change,and I can't even change it manually by CCS GUI.The same time ,I can watch DSP's cpu registers,program & data memory normally.When I quit CCS program,the HOST can continue to read & write the DSP correctly,without reset the DSP.It seems that only the DSP core(CPU domain) is suspended.

When the dsp success to boot and run,I connect the CCS to the DSP ,I can step debug run the above simple code normally.

By the way,I use a core voltage of 1.6V. EMU0,EMU1 pins pulled up by a 10K resistor to DVdd respectively.
