Download to flash with Codewarrior

Started by mfilippa77 December 3, 2005
Hello people,

I am downloading my software with the debug button in codewarrior. The
target is a 56F800DEMO board (56F801).

Codewarrior indicates 782 bytes of code and 7 bytes of data, but
downloads 1300 bytes (as shown in dialog).

What are these extra bytes going to the DSP?

Thanks
Mariano


Hi Mariano,

My guess is that the code and data you are seeing is just that which
shows up in the project manager windo. The other data is the runtime or
libraries being added but you can look into the link map to be sure.
It will tell exactly that's going where.

Also note that the DEMO board uses a 568013, not the 801.

I think I found it. Please correct me if I am wrong.

The project manager window shows data and code size in KWords. The
dialog that shows the download process to the DSP is showing in
KBytes. Probably that is why it is showing twice as data being
downloaded to the DSP.

What do you mean when you say the DSP in the DEMO board is a 568013?
The DSP reads DSP56F801FA60. The DEMO board is a DSP56F800DEMO. Is
it really a 568013?

Thanks
Mariano
