NOTICE: The Processors Wiki will End-of-Life in December of 2020. It is recommended to download any files or other content you may need that are hosted on processors.wiki.ti.com. The site is now set to read only.
For the version 1.51.0 release, there will be an interface change to the Fapi_calculateECC() function that will affect the TMS570 F021 devices. Users that are currently using this function will need to check the F021 Flash API Reference Guide to see what modifications will be needed to their existing code when upgrading to v1.51.0.
The F021 Flash Application Programming Interface (API) provides a software library of functions to program, erase, and verify F021 (65nm) on-chip Flash memory.
These functions must be used when creating Flash bootloaders or other programming utilities for F021 Flash based microcontrollers.

last updated - 30-Jun-2017
|CQ Bug ID||Description||Platform||Severity||Workaround||Committed to version|
|SDOCM00114339||F021 Flash API User's Guide Misleading / Unclear. API function description must clearly indicate whether that function must be relocated to SRAM or can executed from the Current Flash Bank."||ALL||Minor||None.||2.02.00|
|SDOCM00102546||Add function to verify data and ECC using just a data buffer when programmed using AutoEccGeneration||ALL||Minor||None. But user can look at suggestion proposed in Forum Link http://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/hercules/f/312/p/277756/969617#969617||2.02.00|
|SDOCM00116325||Fapi_getNumberOfBankSectors can access unimplemented Flash Banks. Passing value other than Bank implemented in the device will lead to data Abort.||ALL||Minor||User must Ensure that Bank number parameters passed to API Fapi_getNumberOfBankSectors must be Bank number implemented in the device.||2.02.00|
|SDOCM00116928||F021 Flash API Header Error CGT.IAR.h. #if (__LITTLE_ENDIAN__ == 0) must be used instead of #if !defined(__LITTLE_ENDIAN__). More details in Forum link https://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/hercules/f/312/p/427025/1526765#1526765||ALL||Major||user has to edit the CGT.IAR.h as per the suggestion given in .||2.02.00|
|SDOCM00116805||F021 libraries for RM57x and TMS570LCx Devices are not named correctly, it should be CortexR5 not CortexR4.||ALL||Minor||Use R4_L2FMC libraries for L2FMC devies.||2.02.00|
|SDOCM00120586||Fapi_remapEccAddress API does not return correct main address for RM4x (Little Endian) variants of devices. For eg: TMS570x (BE) and RM4x(LE) devices, API is returning same value 0x00200000 for an input of 0xF0440000, which is wrong for little Endian RM4x devices||RM4x||Minor||The results of the API is Big Endian address, User can change this to Little Endian address for RM4x Device variants.||2.02.00|
|SDOCM00120582||Fapi_remapMainAddress API does not return correct ECC address for RM4x (Little Endian) variants of devices. For eg: TMS570x (BE) and RM4x(LE) devices, API is returning same value 0xF0100000 for an input of 0xF0200000, which is wrong for little Endian RM4x devices||RM4x||Minor||The results of the API is Big Endian address, User can change this to Little Endian address for RM4x Device variants.||2.02.00|
|1.00.1||9-May-2011||Added missing extern reference for Fapi_getBankSectors()|
– Fapi_Status_AsyncBusy – Fapi_Status_AsyncComplete – Fapi_Error_StateMachineTimeout – Fapi_Error_InvalidDelayValue – Fapi_Error_InvalidCpu
stdint.h, uint64_t, uint32_t, uint16_t, and uint8_t. Also changed boolean to boolean_t
