I've made my first AT91SAM9260 board. It is based on Atmel's '9260-EK, but has no NAND flash (at least). In file "CustomApplet.txt" (from SAM-BA) I read that I have to change some scripts to make it work with my custom board. Before I do that, is SAM-BA able to connect with my board, at all? I power-on my board then start SAM-BA and select original "at91sam9260-ek" and nothing happens - ie. the prog freezes. When I first started this, I've mistakenly connected RX & TX the wrong way to the MAX3232 and SAM-BA said "No valid processor ID found". I've connected RX & TX correctly now and SAM-BA just sits, forever. However, before that, I should be sure that my oscillators are working. Well, they both work (32kHz and 20MHz) but the voltage swing is very low - between 0 and 0.5 V, is that OK? The frequency itself is OK.
I've started HyperTerminal and I can see "RomBOOT" displayed. That means my osc is working and that I must change some scripts in order to get anything from sam-ba, right?
Also, after typing V# I get this: v1.7 Jul 13 2007 14:54:32
Hi, Which OS do you use ? Linux or Windows, and what the Version of you SAM-BA host tool ? I've use Debian Etch and Sam-Ba work, my colleague use Ubuntu ( no clue which Version ) and It works sometimes. This colleague simple tries it more then one times, and after the 6 test or so it will work, really Strange. Another colleague use Fedora 13, and it never works. We found out It dosen't matter, which type of CPU 32 or 64 Bit you use. Maybe its a wrong library Version on the host, unfortunately I've no idea which one.
Windows XP SP2, Sam-ba 2.9.
Hi really Strange , I thought only the Linux Version is buggy. Fine, at the Atmel Website is the Revision SAM-BA 2.10 available,please try this one.
Yep, that solved the problem, thanks!
