Program i.MX RT685EVK using SPSDK

I'm trying to use SPSDK to program a firmware image onto the i.MX RT685EVK, but `blhost flash-image` fails with:

Response status = 10200 (0x27d8) Memory Range Invalid.

I must have missed something, should I maybe use nxpdebugmbox directly to program the on-board flash  ?

Hi Ivo,

I do not know if this issue was resolved. I'm trying MCUxpresso Secure Provisioning tool v6 with MIMXRT685-EVK board. I have selected "Flex SPI NOR/MX25UM51345G" (same configuration as Marek Vitula above) and I do not find any problem. I can program the plain image both using UART and also USB.

 There might be problem to configure the memory twice, try to reset the board before each programming cycle.

Note: MCUxpresso Secure Provisioning tool internally uses SPSDK applications (blhost) to communicate with the processor.

Marek

Hello Ivo,

I see a problem with your script. The Macronix Octal SDR memory you are trying to use is connected to port B on evaluation board. It means that you have to specify the second configuration word.

In case you encounter a memory cumulative write error, it means that flash was already programmed. You have to erase it first using the blhost flash-erase-region command.

Thanks, that does get me a step further, although programming the FCB or erasing then still fails.

Hello Ivo,

Regarding the first problem you have encountered. The first part of SRAM is reserved by ISP, that's why the command ended with "Memory range invalid" error. The SRAM should be accessible from address 0x0001c000. You should use the write-memory command instead and specify the address.

Regarding the external memories configuration. To use an external memory device correctly, the device must be enabled with the corresponding configuration profile. If the external memory device is not enabled, then it cannot be accessed by the ROM ISP command. The boot ROM enables specific external memory devices using a preassigned memory identifier.

FlexSPI NOR memories can be configured by 32 bit configuration word.

1. First step is to write the configuration word to SRAM using the blhost fill memory command. Refer to the table "FlexSPI NOR Configuration Option Block" 1069 in the RT6xx User Manual.
blhost -u 0x1FC9,0x0020 -j -- fill-memory 0x10c000 4 <configuration word>

2. Call the configure-memory commmand that tells the boot ROM to generate the whole FCB (512 B flash configuration block) and configure the FlexSPI.
blhost -u 0x1FC9,0x0020 -j -- configure-memory 9 0x10c000

3. The ROM also supports programming the generated FCB to the start of the flash memory using a specific option "0xF000000F"

blhost -u 0x1FC9,0x0020 -j -- fill-memory 0x10c000 4 0xF000000F
blhost -u 0x1FC9,0x0020 -j -- configure-memory 9 0x10c000
(program FCB to the offset 0x400)

The second step is missing in the attached script, that's why it failed with "Invalid argument errror". Because no memory was configured, so the FCB block could not be programmed.

Thanks nxf46245, those pointers were very enlightening.  I missed the "ext_memory_setup.sh" script generated by the SEC tool.

However, I still have trouble replicating the commands generated by the SEC tool, with the command line tools from the SPSDK instead:

Hi Ivo,

If you are trying to program OTP or connected flash devices then you need to be working via a serial interface that is supported by the i.MX RT685 ISP modes. At this point we support UART, USB-HID, SPI or I2C for this device. You cant use SWD for this because debug can be (optionally) disabled for security reasons, plus not all device configuration is available through SWD. If you are using an NXP EVK then you can access these directly, or if you are using your own target then you'll need to make sure you have one of these ports available. See Chapter 42 of the RT600 User manual for more info on the ISP modes.

The debug mailbox is used (via SWD) to perform various debug actions, including mass erase and configuration of debug authentication. Seems like you probably arent trying to do this, but you can find out more about the mailbox in Chapter 48 of the RT600 user manual.
 

You might find it helpful to start with the MCUXpresso SEC tool in order to get more familiar with the device programming on this platform. It also generates command line calls to the various utilities in the SP SDK.

Programming with MCUXpresso SEC's Flash programmer and manufacturing tool (over USB-HID), works for me.

However, while I'm able to program the MIMXRT685EVK from MCUXpresso SEC Flash programmer
and/or manufacturing tool, executing the commands from the generated `write_image_lnx.sh` with SPSDK fails.

During reconfiguring memory after erasing the flash, I get "4 (0x4) Invalid Argument Error.", for the
"blhost -u 0x1FC9,0x0020 -j -- configure-memory 9 0x10c000" command.

(using SPSDK v1.10.1)

Thanks Brandon,

 

I'm actually just using SWD to enter ISP mode, and using **blhost** to communicate over UART, but that is failing with "Memory range invalid", even though 0x0 is supposed to be mapped to RAM (as reported by "list-memory")

+ blhost -p /dev/ttyACM0 -v flash-image build/nxp-MIMXRT685EVK-mcuboot-2.13.0-debug_mbi.bin

ERROR:spsdk.mboot.mcuboot:RX: Mboot: Data aborted by sender (1644ms since start, mcuboot.py:230)
Response status = 10200 (0x27d8) Memory Range Invalid.

 

I tried with SEC tool initially, but couldn't get it to import the .elf file, will retry with .hex files.
