How to configure Codewarrior to disable eeprom erase during downloading

Hello Experts,

I try to disable eeprom erase during downloading, so i configure in CW debugger window(File->Configuration->Load->click 'Advanced'->select 'EEPROM'). But the result is eeprom stil will be erased to 0 or 0xFF after downloading before the program is RUN.

ECU:PC9S12G128MLL
IDE: CW_HC12_v5.1_EVAL(download from freescale web)
Debugger firmware:P&E USB Multilink
prm setting:
SEGMENTS  /* Here all RAM/ROM areas of the device are listed. Used in PLACEMENT below. */

/* Register space  */
/*    IO_SEG        = PAGED         0x0000 TO   0x03FF; intentionally not defined */

/* RAM */
      RAM           = READ_WRITE    0x2000 TO   0x3FFF;
/* D-Flash */
      DFLASH        = READ_ONLY   0x000400 TO 0x0013FF;
·········

PLACEMENT /* here all predefined and user segments are placed into the SEGMENTS defined above. */

·········
   EEPROM_DATA   INTO  DFLASH;
END

 

Can you give the suggestion about this issue? Thanks

In the file tree window of Code Warrior, you should have a group called "Debugger Command Files"

In there will be a "xxx_Startup.cmd" file, where "xxx" is probably the name of the programmer that you use. E.g. on my projects it is called "P&E_Multilink_CyclonePro_Startup.cmd" 

 

Insert the following lines in the file:

 

// This command skips erasing the eeprom :smileyhappy:
FLASH AEFSKIPERASING 0

 

 

Hope that helps

Kef and Stephon,

Thanks for your help.

I modified eeprom section to NO_INIT in prm file and eeprom will not be erased. The solution is OK.

 

But i try the the second solution and it seems not work.I add 'FLASH AEFSKIPERASING 0' in P&E_Multilink_USB_Startup.cmd or P&E_Multilink_USB_Preload.cmd. EEPROM is still be erased.

Below is command window content. Is anything wrong? Thanks very much.

Grace,

 

I see you added AEFSKIPERASING to preload cmd file. Try moving it to startup cmd file. If this won't work, then maybe it is not working on S12G. I used it only on S12D and it worked.

All zeros you get because DFLASH in PRM is READ_ONLY. All variables in READ_ONLY segments are initialized. Use NO_INIT instead of READ_ONLY.

 

To make EEPROM not erased, search forums for AEFSKIPERASING. This command in debugger ini file can be used to not erase some eeprom and flash blocks.
