Problems with custom BF561 card and emulator

Hi forum.

I'm having some problems with the USB-ICE emulator on a custom BF561 card. The code I'm having problems with works fine when loaded from flash using a bootloader.

The main problems are

1. DMA to/from DAC and ADC on PPI wont work  (no data, no interrupt)

2. General timer interrupt wont work (counter wouldn't count, until I found a workaround here)


DMA on UART works fine, and other interrupts also seem to work. I found that, by setting the EMU_RUN bit in the timer config register, the timer would work. However, as far as I can understand from the documentation, this should not be necessary (EMU_RUN should only be used when you want the timer to continue during emulation halt), and similar code works fine without the EMU_RUN bit set on a BF533 EZ-kit I have available.

Is this a peculiarity of the BF561, or could it be a problem with my card? Might there be a similar workaround to get the ADC/DAC DMA working?


I found that others had a similar issue in this thread:


My system: BF561 rev. 0.3 on custom card, VDSP++ 5.080, USB-ICE emulator


Thanks in advance.
