Hello all,

First off, I have read and tried, possibly incorrectly, the information at:


I am using a RedProbe+ and programmed my chip with code that puts it into one of the deeper sleep modes (not sure which is loaded) in the FreeRTOS IdleHook (yeah, not smart, but I was experimenting).

I have proved that the chip functions, I have a UART that spits out startup messages, which do appear, and I have GPIO pin toggles in the FreeRTOS IdleHook and TickHook functions.  I can see those pins toggle a couple of times after a reset, then stop.  I can pull the EINT0 pin low to generate a wake interrupt and watch the pins toggle and then stop (going back to sleep).

When I try to program, erase or debug, the connection always fails with:

02: Failed on connect: Em(01). Cannot find selected MEM-AP (check target power)
Emu(0): Conn&Reset. Was: None. DpID: 2BA01477. Info: FTUT6ATWA

I tried the ISP steps, but as soon as I try to load my new program, I get the same failure (Em(01))

Am I missing something on the ISP steps.  Just ground P2.10, do a reset, then release P2.10, then attempt to launch the debugger and program the chip, correct?
