iMPACT crashes when programing flash with processor data!. Options

Hi,

I am using ISE14.7 and have an ISE project containing MicroBlaze processor. My application code is about 256KB runing from DDR memory - I have a bootloader which loads processor data from SPI Flash to DDR. Whenever I try to configure my SPI flash iMPACT crashes at a specific page of memory. Below picture shows this weird phenomena:

I would appreciate any help.

Hi,

It is an N25Q32 4X SPI. If my processor data size is small it can program flash. Howvere, for large application data in .mcs file it behaves like this.

Re: iMPACT crashes when programing flash with processor data!. Options

you have mentioned that when processor data size is increased, it crashes.

how much is the data size increased? 

Also what is the OS you have installed the impact tool

Re: iMPACT crashes when programing flash with processor data!. Options

Hi @kkn,

I have some processor data sizes of 14KB!. that causes iMPACT to crash. I used some tables in my application to increase application size intentionally up to say 250KB!. Then I saw that it crashes. Howevre, I have a simple application below 14KB that iMPACT manages to write it on Flash finely.

I have installed it - ISE14.7 - on Windows 7.

 

Thanks,

Hossein
