SDK - Memory Accesses in XSDB Fails with the Error “Invalid address – it can hang PS interconnect"


When accessing a valid memory region through XSDB, the following error message is generated:

Invalid address 0xf8008000 - it can hang PS interconnect


This error message occurs because the HW Server blocks transactions to unknown memory regions.

When XSDB is connected to a running target (either using GUI mode or from the console) there is no HDF file associated, so "loadhw" can be used to define all of the available memory regions.

Alternatively the "memmap" command can be used to map an ELF file, which will provide access to the memory region defined within the application.
