I'm using the FM3 MCU MB9BF516N for several PCBs.

I have now some PCBs not working.

It seems that the MCU does not start, because I also get no connection with the Debugger using SWD.

What could be the reason?

In the datasheet I found in chapter 12.4.7 Power-on Reset Timing the following:

Power ramp rate dV/dt (Vcc: 0.2V to 2.7V) Min 0.8 mV/µs, Max: 1000 mV/µs

Is this a condition for proper startup of the MCU?

In other words: If the power Ramp on Vcc is slower than 0.8 mV/µs, could startup of the CPU fail?

Yes, it's possible the reason.

Please follow the power-on reset timing spec on Vcc ramp rate, and then let me know if it helps.

Yes it's the reason. but I'll use now an microcontroller supervisory circuit for external reset signal to ensure proper startup
