How go back version 8.44 to Cyclone Pro, currently it's 8.52, I want go back because this new version it´s slower
Greetings,We do not advise you to downgrade your firmware. It can potentially brick your cyclone. What we can do instead is help you in making it faster again. Could you tell me which chip you are trying to program and what kind of commands you are running your programming image?Takao Yamada
the chip is S912XET256 and the commands areCM X:\Freescale_9S12XET256_1x16x128k_256k_Linear_Pflash_PLL.12PSS X:\Flash.s19EN ;Erase if not BlankBM ;Blank Check ModulePM ;Program ModuleVM ;Verify ModuleVC ;Verify Checksumbut the version 8.52 it's slower
Greetings,I would recommend to update your cyclone to version 8.63. Maybe it is faster than 8.52 for your setup:http://www.pemicro.com/downloads/download_file.cfm?download_id=291Let me know if it makes a difference.Also, I would recommend removing "BM; Blank check module" after a erase since it will always pass. And I would also recommend choosing either VM or VC, but not both. I know that this is the default setup from the image wizard, but it is bulky and slow. Takao Yamada
Greetings,Have you gotten a chance to firmware update your Cyclone and see if it improves?Takao Yamada
