I’m having problems with my debugger. I am using PSoC Creator 3.0 Component Pack 7 (188.8.131.529). I know that there is a newer version but am reluctant to upgrade in the middle of a project. I can't afford the time if it breaks my project. This issue just started today. When I start a debug session it seems to start but never halts at the beginning like usual. If I hit the break button nothing happens. In the output window I get the following:
Programming started for device: 'PSoC 4 CY8C4245LQI-483'.
Device ID Check
Programming of Flash Starting...
Device 'PSoC 4 CY8C4245LQI-483' was successfully programmed at 07/15/2014 12:54:52.
Continuing target program
Error 'Unable to create debug address from backend address 0xFFFFFFFF' received while attempting to read memory 0xFFFFFFFF-0x00000003
I just had this issue and figured out that the problem was in the project's system tab in 'Debug Select' which was set to I/O.
When debugging this setting should be 'SWD'.
I'm changing this setting back and forth between I/O SWD since I need to verify current consumption in STOP mode.
If the SWD is activated here the chip consumes much more power in STOP mode.
Hopefully someone can make use of this info.
Michel, welcome in the forum and thank you for sharing your experiences with us!
Yes, the PSoC3, 4 and 5 PSoCs have some debugging capabilities integrated into the chip that consume some power apart from the pins used for debugging.
