Beaglebone Black cape load failure

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDA-00560

Hi Guys,

I am using a TI 16-bit LED driver TIDA-00560E1 cape attached to the BBB.
I am using kernel image:
root@beaglebone:/lib/firmware#  uname -a
Linux beaglebone 4.4.9-ti-r25 #1 SMP Thu May 5 23:08:13 UTC 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux

The problem is the cape gets initialized on boot, but fails to be LOADED:
root@beaglebone:/lib/firmware# cat $SLOTS
 0: PF----  -1
 1: PF----  -1
 2: PF----  -1
 3: P-----  -1 16-CH LED DRIVER,00A0,Texas Instrument,TIDA-00560

The dmesg output is as follows:

    3.541199] bone_capemgr bone_capemgr: slot #0: No cape found
[    3.585195] bone_capemgr bone_capemgr: slot #1: No cape found

[    4.677491] bone_capemgr bone_capemgr: loader: failed to load slot-3 TIDA-00560:00A0 (prio 0)

What can be the possible cause for this failure? Any suggestions please.

Best Regards,
