Riverdi RVT101HVSNWC00 external flash programming fails

I have been trying to program the mentioned display. Whilst using TGFX 4.20.0 I can program an empty project then, generate code and upload from CubeIDE 1.9.0 without issue. Adding an image to the empty project and run target from TGFX works no problem BUT when generate code and run target from Cube ide it fails

Erasing memory corresponding to segment 0:

Error: failed to erase memory

This is using

STM32H_IPS_Riverdi_CM7_v3.stldr from project and STM32H_IPS_QSPI_Loader_CM7.stldr supplied by manufacturer

I hope you can help with this issue

Thank you

Hello Mark,

Have you tried to flash your board within STM32CubeProgrammer instead ?

Also, which board do you use ? Are you sure that the external loader used by TouchGFX Designer when you run on target is actually the same used on your STM32CubeIDE ?

Definitely try from the GUI version of STM32 Cube Programmer (v2.11.0 currently), select the External Loader(s) and see if the behaviour is consistent there.

What type (make/model) of flash memory is used on these boards?

Did this work at some point, and then stop working?

Perhaps an alternate loader, rebuilt this using my own loader trees, and the pins used on the RIVERDI board.

Thanks I will look at this tomorrow πŸ‘

I'll review where I am with my Micron loaders (13 months since I touched the H7 ones), spent most of the time with the Macronix and Winbond parts as they are more prolific, and least covered by ST Support. In terms of availability/flexibility the SOP16W (SOIC16 300-mil) packaged parts is by far the broadest. Outside of Winbond, everyone seems to be moving to the BGA24 (6x8mm) for the stacked die parts (ie 1Gb (2x 512Mb die), 2Gb (4x 512Mb die))

I had tried programmer 2.8, 2.9 and 2.10 GUI, I managed to erase the ext flash but never write. Also tried all three cli versions in CubeIDE to no avail

With STcubeProg 2.11.0 your CLIVEONE-MT25QL512A works a treat! was able to program ext flash then load internal flash and run OK, this is further than I got before. Really looking to be able to program and debug from Cube IDE

loading in CubeIDE 1.9.0 with programmer 2.11.0 and your file, consol output os below

To me looks like it invokes the programmer once to try to write both internal and external flash compared to TGFX invoking the programmer twice.

I can confirm that the problem is still there using external flash loader provided with TouchGFX 4.21.1 and STM32CubeProgrammer 2.6, 2.10 and 2.13.

The workaround is, as mentioned above, to load internal and external flash separately from separate files.

Can you please provide steps on how to do this? I have this problem and cannot load the riverdi display with the cubeIDE generated code.
