P89C51RD2 Program Execution issue
« on: February 10, 2008, 09:24:35 pm »
Hi all,

I was working with my old product which has P89C51RD2 on the board. The programming and verification seems alright using flash magic but the chip is facing a continuous reset. when i looked in to the matter i found on internet (ref) which might be relevant. but here the code is not getting corrupted instead the continuous reset is occurring. ( I have not touched Watchdog related registers in code)

Regards,
Mihir.

This sounds like the infamous bootvector loss problem.
You can find some additional background information searching 8052.com and the FlashMagic (forum.flashmagictool.com) forums.
One thing you should consider is a proper reset IC, if you don't use one already.
Other thing might be to use Erik Malund's idea - to add a code for bootloader entry into your application. Search under NoTouch/BackDoor on those two sites I mentioned above.

sounds as if you are in the wrong forum

try www.8052.com

i have some suggestions, but do not want to 'pollute' the FM forum with them
