SHARC Audio Module (ADZS-SC589-MINI) POST (PowerOnSelfTest) Source code available ?

Hi,

I bought SHARC SC589-MINI board the other day.

Its FLASH ROM has pre-installed POST program.

I'd like to get the source code for it, is it available?

It's going to be very helpful for DRAM testing, etc.

Thank you.

    Hi Hiro,

    Unfortunately it is not available. If you elaborate on what you are trying to do then I might be able to help in a different way.

  • Hi chadw,

    Thanks for the answer.  A little I disappointing. But , then,

    Is there a way to save what is recorded in ROM ?.

    I am afraid that it will be lost when I save user application to rom.

    I hope there is a way to return it to the shipping state.

    Regards.

    Hiro

    Hi Hiro,

    The intention is that the user will overwrite what is in flash so it is not expected that the POST program will live in flash for long. We use it for testing prior to shipping so that is really the only reason it is there and there is really no other benefit to it. You can use the command line device programmer(cldp.exe) to read flash and it will create an ldr file for you that you could later program but like I said there is really no good reason to do so that I can think of.

    Regards,
