SYMPTOMS

Many new microcontrollers have been developed in the past few years. Some of these devices require special startup code in order to properly initialize all on-chip peripherals and memory.

CAUSE

Many new devices have on-chip RAM, ROM, and/or FLASH memory that is disabled by default. Additionally, many devices include on-chip peripherals that must be enabled in the startup code.

RESOLUTION

Several new startup modules have been created to support these special devices.

As new devices are added to the device database, startup code modules will be created as needed.

MORE INFORMATION

Refer to the Device Database for a complete list of supported chips.
