Hello,

 

I have a custom designed board using an 8M Mini processor on it. In the process of developing with this board, I ran the mscale DDR evaluation tool successfully on it before loading any software on it. After loading some software on it and burning the fuse bank at address 0x470, I wanted to run the DDR tool again, so I set the BOOT_MODE[1:0] pins = 01 (for serial download mode) and found that I was now unable to run the DDR tool. This is output log from the tool:

The tool just hangs after this. Note: I can go back to BOOT_MODE = 00 and the board boots just fine. Has anyone run into a similar issue? Can anyone explain what's going on here or how I can investigate this issue more? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks
