Unreliable debugging connection
I've an ICE CUBE connected to the CY3274 (CPU: CY8CPLC20) through the RJ45 connector.
Unfortunately I'm finding the debugger very unstable.
On one machine (running Windows XP inside a virtual machine), PSoC Designer simply doesn't go beyond the download: after I download the image to the board, it says "Preparing to run..." and stays like that forever.
I tried on another machine (Windows 7) and I got something better here. I got the PC to stop at the:
after downloading the image.
Unfortunately the debugger appear to jump back to that location (0x0000) once in a while...
Only few times after several resets I managed the PC to hit one of my breakpoint (that were simply few lines after main), but any attempt to do a step, managed to go back to 0x0000.
Any idea why? Any suggestions?
- I'm using PSoC Designer 5.3 with all the tools freshly installed (in this new Windows 7 machine).
- I'm not using watchdog, just a simple project created from scratch from PSoC Designer 7
Any help/idea is appreciated!
