  • [SOLVED] Problem to erase a protected Infineon-ARM M4

    Hi.

    On a Infineon XMC4700 Arm processor, i've activate the sector read/write protection with a password -> XMC_FLASH_InstallProtection(0, PROTECT_RP_WPS0, (uint32_t)PW1, (uint32_t)PW2);


    Now I have no way to erase the whole chip.

    The connection with JLink is ok, but if i try to unlock the device, JLink show's a error.

    is there a way to delete the chip if i know the passwords?



    Here the output from JLink:

  • Hi,
    Thank you for your inquiry.
    If you locked your device with a password, there is no way for the J-Link to unlock your device without it.
    You will have to unlock the device manually (e.g. via the J-Link Commander).

    The necessary registers should be writable after connecting to the device.
    For all necessary commands (e.g. w4) please refer to the following article:
    wiki.segger.com/J-Link_Commander#Commands

    Does this resolve the problem?

    Best regards,
    Fabian
