I hope to continue doing these reviews!@SquirrelMaster thanks for taking the time to write this up, I really enjoyed it as a non-EE guy and hope you continue with these style reviews.
Will you be speculating more on the cause of the lockup issue in another post? I don't follow why the FPGA's externally stored bitstream (that I presume is only read at startup?) would be the cause of the lockups.
I definitely will go into more detail on what I think is causing the lockup once I do a bit more testing to confirm my theory. At this point, I can reliably get the unit to crash but need to narrow down exactly why it does that.
I may have not expressed myself very well. I don't believe the issue is in the fpga's external flash storage. I believe it's in the storage that the main mcu uses for the defender database/lockouts.
I'll make a thread about this soon enough.
