How to write data into data flash in S32K144 using segger J link?

Latest reply on Nov 8, 2017 by Venkatraman C

I am trying to flash some data into the data flash section of S32K144 processor using Segger J-link. I edited the linker file to create a memory section pointing to the data flash sector and set up some data in this section (2 KB data at address 0x10000000) in my application software. When building the software, I could see that the map file and elf contains these sections with the correct number of bytes that I allocated in the linker script. But, when flashing the software, the flashing operation on the data flash memory always fails and the data flash portion is in erased state. Is there any other setting that should be done in S32 design studio to enable writing of data flash?

 

This is the log from the programming process. We could observe the "Verify Failed" error when flashing. If I remove the data section, the programming succeeds.
