Breakpoint warning with 805EVM

Started by Bruno Tremblay January 23, 2003
Hi,

I came back on a recent project with the DSP56F805EVM and when I tried to
use the debugger I got this warning message:

Breakpoint Warning
Unable to set all the breakpoints requested. Some breakpoints may be
disabled and will not stop the processor. So, I didn't set any breakpoint, the code was working fine some weeks ago
and I had just reboot my PC. Can someone give me a clue on what's going on
with the EVM board or CodeWarrior? Thanks,

Bruno

I would check to see if you have breakpoints defined in your files and whether you are set up for hardware breakpoints or not. If you have hardware breakpoints set, which is what you should have set if you are debugging from internal flash, then you only have a single hardware interrupt to use. Debugging from external RAM has some benfits in that you can set software breakpoints and you can have as many breakpoints as you wish. But this does effect your speed of operation if you have both your program and data external. Thanks.
