Latest _BOOT_P2.BIX, January 2024 on the P2 Edge Rev D?

MGreimMGreim Posts: 114

Hi,
on Sourceforge
https://sourceforge.net/projects/tachyon-forth/files/TAQOZ/binaries/
I found a new BIX image from January, 06 2024.
Unfortunately it shows only:
BOOTING.... CARD: SANDISK SD SH32G REV$80 #2962451868 DATE:2023/4
then it hangs.
Same Hardware, SD-card etc. as with the BIX file from April 2021.
Also using a new SD (SanDisk Max Endurance 32 Gbyte), re-formating etc. doesn't help.
Is the new software expecting any hardware, that doesn't exist on the P2 Edge Rev. D with the P2 Edge Mini Breakout?

    A couple of suggestions:

    1. If you are using Windows, try the official SD Association format program instead - https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ - I have had problems with Windows formatted SD cards.
    2. Try an SD card other than a SanDisk. I don't have any Max Endurance cards, but I know their Ultra cards have problems.

  • @MGreim ,
    take a look at the https://sourceforge.net/projects/tachyon-forth/ again. Peter has updated the BIX file most recently. That, perhaps, will fix your issue with reading from SD.

  • Hello Macieck,
    Hello Peter,

    many thanks - that BIX file works fine! :)
    It seems that the clock frequency was reduced to 200 MHz.
    Quote from _BOOT_P2.TXT:
    240219 - Loaded new image but set clock to 200MHz in case some SD cards and pcbs have problems with higher than 50MHz SPI frequency.

    Now the complete new boot message is:
