Known Issue(s)

ID Description Targeted Release
N/A On some C2000 devices, if the device is locked, a “Verify Image” operation will fail since it does not perform an unlock operation before it tries to reads/verify memory. A workaround is to keep the core connected, unlock the core by providing the correct password, and then executing the verify operation. N/A
UNIFLASH-570 On flash devices, it is recommnded that you do not load to both RAM and flash memory in the same program, as the RAM memory can be overwritten by RAM needed by the flash algorithm. N/A
UNIFLASH-1309 On some C2000 devices, clicking on “Fill Security Fields from Target” button may not reflect correct values for LINKPOINTERS N/A
CCBT-2519 On C2000 F28004x devices, after programming any new DCSM setting, a lock/unlock GUI sequence will fail to unlock the device. A debug reset needs to be issued for the unlock to work. N/A
CCBT-2527 On C2000 F2838x devices, when the Download Setting is set to “Verify Only”, the Load Image operation will fail to execute, due to incorrect flash algorithm being loaded. As a workaround, you can use the “Verify Image” button to perform the verification operation instead. N/A
