Applies to: PB-A8
Attempting to program logic devices on the PB-A8 baseboard using the Progcards executables supplied on the Versatile family CD-ROM v3.5 (or earlier) results in the following error message:
Block erase failed (SR=0xA2)
Version 2.04 of the 'prog_engine_3_2' file supplied on the v3.5 CD-ROM does not correctly handle the type of flash memory used on the PB-A8 board.
Download the latest bundle of Progcards files from the ARM website and merge them into the PB-A8 'boardfiles' directory, allowing existing files to be overwritten. This will update prog_engine_3_2 to v2.05.
The prog_engine version will be displayed when you run progcards_rvi. First it displays the version of the progcards_rvi.exe file:
Progcards for RealView ICE, Version 2.04
After you select the RealView ICE unit to connect to, the prog_engine version is displayed:
You are using prog_engine_3_2 Version 2.05
