Binaries compiled with ADS 1,2 not working..but the GNU versions are working fine!!

Discussion in 'Embedded' started by Mayank Kaushik, Mar 13, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    Im working on the AT91rm9200. I had compiled a few programs using the
    ADS 1.2 package. But ive found that all of a sudden, these binaries are
    not executing on the microcontroller anymore! as soon as i load the
    program onto the controller using HyperTerminal, the controller
    resets..ive verified that this is a logical problem, all the hardware
    has been tested using scopes etc for electrical anomalies..

    Further proof of this fact is that the programs i had compiled with the
    GNU toolchain are working perfectly!

    Whats going on???!!

  2. You are aware that when you load them into memory
    using the BootROM; you are loading them into internal RAM.
    There is an upper limit of about 12-13 kB of code you
    can download using the BootROM.

    What you ahve to do is to download an ISP program first
    (which knows about your system)
    and then the ISP program has to store the following
    files to external memory.

    It certainly doesn't. What files, what isn't working, etc.
    Articles need to stand by themselves, there is no guarantee any of
    a previous thread is available at the destination. That is why we
    quote. See my sig. below if you really must use google. Better,
    get a real newsreader.
