TIDC-BLE-TO-WIFI-IOT-GATEWAY: Cannot format SFLASH and program the board

Part Number: TIDC-BLE-TO-WIFI-IOT-GATEWAY

Hi

I'm trying to get TIDC-BLE-TO-WIFI-IOT-GATEWAY up and running... but i'm encountering so many issues.

I've scoured the internet looking for answers but there doesn't seem to be any solution to this problem.
I've made sure the COM port is correct and I'm using serial(UART) Interface for communication.

Below is a summary of what I have tested on 10 different PCB:

1.) Formatting the SFLASH keeps failing.
2.) Service pack programming fails.
3.) Binary download fails.
4.) Get version seems to return the correct version.
5.) List file system shows 0 blocks on the serial flash capacity.

Keep in mind that I did not change any components in the BOM. I followed the reference design to the teeth.
I have exhausted all options, please help.

SFLASH Formatting

Result: Failed.

  • Hi Vic,

    It seems that you have a problem with the "erase" (and maybe with the "write") procedures but not with the "read".
    I'm not aware of anything that will lock the "write" operation.
    Does the reference platform works?
    what are the exact changes that you made on your board? do you use different flash?

    Br,
    Kobi

    Kobi,

    I've solved this issue after going through the schematic and taking a closer look at the board.
    It was actually a hardware problem.
    I can read and write with no issue now.

    Thank you for your help!
