HCS08 SH8 MCU works only correctly in debug mode

Hello @ll!


I use an 10Mhz external crystal source, 5Mhz Busclock. All works fine during debugging my target under CW 6.3 Special edition. My program is written in assembler and prints a serial ASCII string out for test purposes. My OS is Win XP SP3 and I have a quad core computer.


But after powering up the target MCU again the SCI module prints a lot of trash out. Not my ASCII string. During debugging all was fine.

I also programmed a small delay after initialization of the external crystal source. Cause it could be a problem, the crystal need some time for starting oscillating. I also checked the waveform from the crystal on my scope during debugging and after a power on. Both cases look the same. 


Any ideas?


Best regards,
