I want to use the Data Access Overlay(OVC) function with TC233.

Can you provide material or example source for this function?

Here is a little example of overlay. I wrote it for a TC27x, so it's using OVC2 (CPU2 overlay registers) instead of OVC0, and it remaps PFLASH access to LMU RAM, so you'll need to adapt the addresses to your use case.

Hi, UC_wrangler.

Thanks for sharing on the Overlay sample code, I tested it works, but somehow it is kind of "overlay RAM is updated once" only.
Basically, I just want to have a live overlay RAM update, so I put the Test_Algo_Update in the infinite loop (see code below).

But somehow, after Test_Algo_Update[] is updated, then I go and update the 0xB0004000 in Lauterbach debugger, but I don't see Test_Algo_Update[] is updated.... Why?
Any idea?

int main2(void)
{
:
:


for( ;; )
{
for( i=0; i<31; i++ )
{
Test_Algo_Update = Test_Map_Cal_Flash;
}
}
}

Thanks and regards,
William.

Overlay is a per-CPU feature; when you view a debugger window, it doesn't include overlay.

In Lauterbach, try doing SYStem.Option OVC ON, to force the debugger to use the CPU's point of view.

I could not make OVC executed on TC39x by simply copying the code described in this topic, so I created a PJ that executes OVC the TC39x using AURIX™ Development Studio and have attached it.

To make it executed on other than TC39x, please copy Cpu0_Main.c, Cpu2_Main.c, and Cpu2_Main.h to a PJ of the family you would like to make OVC executed on.
