    • Problems debugging NXP RT1052 with Ozone

      Hello,

      I'm working with an NXP i.MX RT1052 MCU and have working debugging in NXP MCUXpresso IDE v10.3.1_2233 with JLink_V645b and a newly bought J-Link PRO (firmware is updated). Works very reliable but Eclipse (which is the base for MCUXpresso) is a bit of a beast and not as nice as Ozone for debugging, so now when I'm chasing a specially annoying bug I decided to switch over to Ozone V2.62, but it just refuses to work.

      In MCUXPresso the Debugger settings are:

      Device: MCIMXRT1052
      Target interface: SWD
      Speed: auto

      In Ozone it's set to:
      Target device: MCIMXRT1052 or MIMXRT1052DVL6B (tried both)
      Target interface: SWD: 1 MHz (tried some other speeds, and auto, as well)

      It flashes the device but then all I get is:

      J-Link: connected to target device
      Reset: Halt core after reset via DEMCR.VC_CORERESET.
      Reset: Reset device via AIRCR.SYSRESETREQ.
      Elf.GetBaseAddr();
      Target.SetReg ("SP", 0xC0C0C0C);
      Target.SetReg ("PC", 0x0);

      Current: R0 = 00000000, R1 = 00000000, R2 = 00000000, R3 = 00000000
      R4 = 00000000, R5 = 00000000, R6 = 00000000, R7 = 00000000
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      The board is an Embedded Artists devkit:

      embeddedartists.com/products/imx-rt1052-developers-kit/

      Very annoying, but electrically everything seems fine since it works with MCUXPresso.
      Let me know if I can try something out to to either fix the problem or give you more information about what's going wrong.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      The reported behaviour is most likely related to the wrong SP and PC values being set by the default Ozone project config.
      Is your application running in RAM only or in QSPI?
      In any case the SP and PC values need to be set correctly.
      For more information see here:

    • Hello,

      Sorry for late response but I've found the time to dig a bit deeper into this and it seems that the MCUXpresso does a lot of setup of the RT1052 before actually start to run anything on the MCU. It can be found in the file
      workspace/.mcuxpressoide_packages_support/MIMXRT1052xxxxB_support/Script/evkbimxrt1050_sdram_init.jlinkscript in the MCUXpresso project but apparently the syntax is not accepted as is by Ozone. The first obstacles are the instructions MEM_ReadU32 and MEM_WriteU32, but I bet it doesn't end there.

      Just noting it down here in case someone else is trying to find his/her way down the same rabbit hole.

      I'll see if I find the time to dig down further at a later time, but for now this will be put on hold. If I find the time I'll get back to this thread.
    • Hello,

      JLinkScript and Ozone scripting syntax is not compatible as they communicate with different software.
      But you can set a JLinkScript inside your Ozone project.
      More information can be found in the Ozone user manual or here:
