TMS320C6713 bootload

Started by bigbibby2002 November 24, 2007
Buddy,
A c6713 is designed to bootload from FLASH memory.
There are some cases:
1. As usually,power on ,we can see the address space
(0x00000000~0x000003ff).It should be filled by the data loaded from
the FLASH. But the first 4 bytes( 0x00000000~0x00000003) are always
filled by 0xFFFFFFFF .
2. In the case 1,if we reset the DSP by the CCS. Then ,the firt 4 bytes
will reload the data from flash correctly.
3. In the case 1,if we reset DSP by giving a reset signal on the RESET
pin of DSP. The first 4 bytes are filled by 0xFFFFFFFF still.
I do not know why?

First, what board is this? Without knowing that, it's hard to say... Second, are
you saying that *only* the first 4 bytes are wrong? The remainder of the 1k bytes is
correct?

If only the first 4 bytes are bad, then my guess would be that running CCS introduces
a delay that allows the Flash device to initialize. In your board design, what is
connected to the Flash device Reset line?

You might try holding the DSP in reset longer. I assume you have the DSP Reset
asserted at power-on for a period as specified in the data sheet? You might try
extending that period. 1 msec is a safe duration.

Also, normally Flash device Reset is active low -- are you sure your Flash device
doesn't need to have an initial low duration?

check your flash content
do the same but with a reset instruction in the debugger, the same as the reset but the debugger do not loose controlcheck content of memory with and without cache bypass, it can happen sometimes that you think the content is FF, but it's because of the cache
Dear dengzhibin,

A CPU Reset in Code Composer only bootloads from Flash and then halts the
DSP at address 0, while a hardware reset also executes the code.
Maybe your program/bootloader code overwrites the first four bytes during
execution?
