The link beween pins 8 and 15? That might be the cause of the problem. I'll
remove it from my I/F and see if I get the same error.

I've just bought 4 Chameleons, and are using them together with
OCDRemote 2.12 and Eclipse vith the Zylin CDT plugin. This is working
just fine, and I'm using the Chameleon as a Raven_All_Speeds and
connects with speed = 4.

I've just bought 4 Chameleons, and are using them together with
OCDRemote 2.12 and Eclipse vith the Zylin CDT plugin. This is working
just fine, and I'm using the Chameleon as a Raven_All_Speeds and
connects with speed = 4.

Perhaps mine is faulty. It was OCDremote 2.12 I tried.

How is your LPT1 set up? Mine is configured to EPP mode, but the other
day I ran on another machine that wasn't. You could try to see if that
did the trick.

That was the first thing I checked.

Hi Leon,

If you really give up I'd like to buy it and give it a try.
I've got access to a logic analyzer, a real Raven and my own Perfect Wiggler
;-) to compare against.

Arie de Muynck

You can also reply to the temporary chameleon@cham...


Dear friends,
I buy ChameleonPOD from second hand. Configuration for Xilinx, Altera,
Lattice, Atmel, ARM work fine.
Now i wont program MSP430 and PSD chips from ST, but i dont know if it is
possible with ChameleonPOD.
In configuration SW i see "amt_chm_080_st_psd_flashlink" but pinout i dont
know. And in any mailing list users
talk about configutation for MSP430.

Iam contact Amontec (Laurent Gauch) and receive this answer"

>>Yes, I can help you to use the Chameleon POD for PSD and MSP430.
>>Actually, I am not in my office. I will send you a new email when I will
>>be back to me office tommorrow.

and nothing more, Amontec stop all communications with me :-((

Can anybody help me?
Can anybody send me actual configurations and coresponding pinouts?

king regards

Yep works fine in Raven mode with a lpc2124. Never tried Wiggler mode.
There is a special Chameleon target for Philips LPCs in particular you
must use, not the generic JTAG one that comes in the bundle. Grab off
their website.
Lack of good h/w breakpoint support when used with ocdremote and Insight
still very annoying.
I'm using the latest ocdremote.

Agreed. I think I also managed to get it with a laptop that had a
Parallel port that didn't configure from BIOS properly into the right
mode. This was back when I was mucking about with a home made wiggler,
so it may not be relevant to the Chameleon.

Where is that? I can't find it.
