SAM-BA freezes

Wed Jul 14, 2010 5:07 pm

I've made my first AT91SAM9260 board.
It is based on Atmel's '9260-EK, but has no NAND flash (at least).

In file "CustomApplet.txt" (from SAM-BA) I read that I have to
change some scripts to make it work with my custom board.

Before I do that, is SAM-BA able to connect with my board, at all?
I power-on my board then start SAM-BA and select original
"at91sam9260-ek" and nothing happens - i.e. the prog freezes.

When I first started this, I've mistakenly connected RX & TX the wrong
way to the MAX3232 and SAM-BA said "No valid processor ID found".
I've connected RX & TX correctly now and SAM-BA just sits, forever.

However, before that, I should be sure that my oscillators are working.
Well, they both work (32kHz and 20MHz) but the voltage swing is very
low - between 0 and 0.5 V, is that OK? The frequency itself is OK.

I've started HyperTerminal and I can see "RomBOOT" displayed.

That means my osc is working and that I *must* change some scripts
in order to get *anything* from sam-ba, right?

Also, after typing V# I get this:

Upgrading to SAM-BA 2.10 solved the problem.

Return to “SAM-BA”
