TDA3XEVM: Load option "1 -> load raw using CCS (Scripting console)" is not working

Part Number: TDA3XEVM

Hello,

I followed the section "3.5  Load using QSPI " in VisionSDK_UserGuide_TDA3xx.pdf

But when I try to flash AppImage_BE:

- Load option 1 -> load raw using CCS (Scripting console)" : is not working.

- Load option 0 -> fread using code (RTS Library)": works fine.

There is a similar question (https://e2e.ti.com/support/processors/f/processors-forum/820551/rtos-tda3xevm-qspi-flash-in-tda3x-evm), but no answer.

Note: My PC OS is Windows, not Ubuntu.

Does anyone know the answer? Thanks a lot.

  • For option 1, you need to use "scripting console" in CCS to load the file to memory.

    Are you getting error while loading file using scripting console?

    If yes, please share the log or screenshot from scripting console in CCS.

  • Hello Stanley,

    No error while loading file, but if I use option 0, it is fine.

    I don't know whether it is related to windows/ubuntu difference.

  • Can you share the log from scripting console in CCS?

    The one you shared is the log from CIO console. 

  • Hello Stanley,

    Sorry I made a mistake.

    I thought the loadRaw command is executed automatically by CCS.

    Actually I need to copy it to Scripting Console and execute it manually. It works now.


    Do you know why when I connect the ARM core 0, the following error will show?

    I can follow the below actions to solve it.

    • 「Run」→「Reset」→「System Reset」,note CPU reset cannot solve this problem.
    • 「Scripts」→「TDA3xx Misc Module configuration」→「OnTargetConnect_API」

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hello Stanley,

    Do you have any update? Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Since you have programmed the QSPI flash with SBL and AppImage, the device will load SBL from flash and boot once power is on.

    When you connect Cortex M4, CCS will try to initialize the system by running the GEL script.

    However, since the system is already initialized by SBL, you will get some error from GEL script.

    If you don't want to reinitialize the system when connecting M4 in CCS, you can remove the GEL script from M4 core.

    Regards,
    Stanley
