CONVERT fails in conversion .hex

Staff: Takao Y.

  • Using CONVERT on one of our .hex files the file gets "converted" to S19 however, it fails to program properly.  
    Takes 5 minutes and fails verification step.

    I used a j-link based software. It worked.
    Converted to S19 using the jlink based software and the S19 programmed using my Cyclone Universal.
    The cyclone programmed and verified program within 20 seconds.

    I'd prefer to use and stick to PEmicro tools. The Cyclone is a great piece of hardware. But, I'm unsure how to move forward with this issue. Please advise

  • Greetings,

    Have you tried just flash programming the HEX file without conversion?

    Do you know if your HEX file is in extended addressing mode?

    • Yes I have.  This has worked in the past.  However, it does not work in this application.  I'm unsure what extended addressing mode is or how it affects programming.  I'm not necessarily a firmware engineer.  I'm on the production engineering side.  Would it be possible to have a discussion either over email to better help?  
      Please and Thanks for you timely reply!

  • Greetings,

    Could you go to Support page -> Support requests and submit a ticket. There you can attach your HEX file and I will take a look at whether your hex file is in extended addressing mode. Then I will use GNU objcopy tool to convert it to an s-record file. I can give you instructions on how to do this conversion yourself for future use.
