STM32F415RGT ART Accelerator

Hello,

 

in your first project we use a STM32F415ZGT without any problems. Then we switch to the smaller version STM32F415RGT in a new design. With the same source code we got some times a hard fault when die MCU is booting up.
After two or three days of software and hardware bug finding and trying different versions of CubeMX and F4 firmware we find a solution to disable the Instruction Cache in CubeMX:


CubeMX settings

 

After that your simple LED blink code runs fine without any hard fault.

 

 

 

Errata sheet lists a bug in Revision "A" devices for the ART Accelerator:

 

ART Accelerator prefetch queue instruction is not supported

Description

The ART Accelerator prefetch queue instruction is not supported on revision A devices.

This limitation does not prevent the ART Accelerator from using the cache enable/disable

capability and the selection of the number of wait states according to the system frequency.

 

 

 

Workaround

   • Revision A devices: none

   • Revision Z and 1 devices: fixed.

 

We found out that your STM32F415RGT is at Revision "2" and that revision is not listed in fixed devices.
Is this bug still existing in Revision "2" devices? And when not: Do you have any solution to your problem?

 

Best regards
