I have programmed the ADuCM4050 EZ-kit several times, and suddenly the download is failing with error: Failed to get CPU status.
What might be the possible reason for this and how to solve this?
It looks like the microcontroller is deep sleep (hibernate or shutdown mode) that's why it doesn't respond to debugger commands. Probably the last code that you have downloaded sends the device to sleep before the debugger connects to the microcontroller, therefore the controller is not able to respond.
Can you please try the following and make sure the EZ-Kit is connected to the debugger and IAR:
The ADuCM4050 is now ready to be programmed.
If the same problem persist please don't hesitate to inform us.
