SPI flash problem on new XMOS Board

Postby Schorsch » Tue Aug 23, 2016 8:44 am

Hi XMOS-Community,

I need help with a new board that I build. I took the XS1-A16A-128-FB217 silicon and I created the layout like the datasheet on page 31 with XSCOPE.

PIN 6 -> XLB1 out ( 33 Ohm )
PIN 10 -> XLB0 out ( 33 Ohm )
PIN 14 -> XLB0 in
PIN 18 -> XLB1 in

I use the XMOS xTAG3 to program the IC and it works fine. But, if I want to flash the SPI I get following error message: ( xTIMEcomposer 14.1.2 )

xrun: First stage multi-node boot failed, please check XN file and Xmos link connectivity

Now my question. Can anyone help me with my XN-File?

I orientated me on the XN-File from the SLICEKIT-A16.xn.

Many thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Schorsch,

The XN file seems sound, I can use it here to flash my Slickit-A16 without issue. The only difference between this XN and the SLICEKIT-A16.xn file that is shipped with the tools is that your xscope is using link X0LB instead of X0LA. This would not cause a first stage multi-node boot error.

Can you please run your xflash again, this time with --verbose and post the output here. Would be interesting to see where in the flash process that actually fails. Also can you do an xrun --dumpstate your.xe and post the results of that here too.

Many Thanks
Colin

Hi colin,
the problem is solved! What have I done:

I had a NC7WZ04 for pulling down the RST_N Pin from the xTAG3 Header to the XMOS RST_N PIN. The RST_N PIN on the XMOS was held high by a 10k resistor close to it.
Now I changed the NC7WZ04 to a FET ( IRLML0030 ) ... and now it works! I think, that the RST_N PIN need a very low impedance to ground.

Many thanks for your help and best greetings!
