Hello,

We have been using STM32F205VB6 in production for several years. In a recent batch we purchased a high percentage of processors the boot loader doesn't work over USB properly. We have a jumper tied to BOOT0 pin and I have verified that the voltage is correct when the device is powered up or reset, however the device never shows up over USB.

When I use JTAG to examine the state of the processor just after reset I see the follow address on the program counter:
 
Good Board: pc=0x0B92349E
Bad Board:   pc=0x1FFF3DE4

You can see that a bad processor is not in valid memory space.

Any ideas on how I can further interrogate the boot loader and figure out what is the problem.
