Could not erase chip RA6M3G

Hello, @supporter.

I am working on an RA6M3G device.

I tried to erase the chip using J-Flash Lite V7.92c but was unsuccessful.

I used Jlink Commander V7.92c but still failed.

Here log:

Could you please help me check it and give me the solution?

Thank you.

  • Hello,

    At the screenshot that you sent with Segger J-link to flash download, the process is stuck for long time or just 1-2 seconds?

    Also, on the J-Flash Lite V7.92c, do you see the same error  as your initial screenshot or something else?

      I see the same error.

    Thank you

  • Hello cu,

    Try another script file, that you can find on the link below:

    https://github.com/renesas/ra-fsp-examples/blob/master/application_projects/r11an0416/reset_scripts/smpu_aws_reset_script/RA6M3_Erase_SMPU_AWS.jlink

    If that doesn't work, I cannot think  any other solution.

    Regards

  • Hello Al_Renesas,

    It doesn't work Disappointed.

    After running the script, I tried to erase it but was unsuccessful.

    Regards.

  • The log after I run the script.

  • Hi, I have the same problem, I used the EK-RA6M3G suddenly can not erase the chip, I tried the above two scripts are invalid, what other way

  • Did you solve the problem
