AT91SAM7SE256B (Rev B of AT91SAM7SE256)

We have product that work for years with AT91SAM7SE256. As this chip version is no longer available, we should switch to AT91SAM7SE256B. However, we discover an issue. The product is no longer able to understand an incoming frame in ISO7816 T=1 protocol (internal USART used). It understand the ATR, but after transmission, the reception is not effective. The device (smartcard) connected to our product, understands the frame because it responds, checked by oscilloscope. Checking the errata differences between the 2 chips, in the datasheet, give me no information on this behavior. Any idea? Regards,

did you take care of the fact that rev. B has higher flahs accerss times than rev A?
Maybe this is the reason for your problems with rev. B. take a look at the datasheet at chapter " : Embedded Flash Access Time".
if this isn't the reason for your problem i would strongly recommend the atmel support.

Thank for the answer.

Yes, the flash wait state is already stated to 2 for 48 MHz.

The issue previously described is the only one of all the others functionalities of the products.

we have the same problem after an upgrade from AT91SAM7X256B to AT91SAM7X256C. We found that it helps to reset TX each time a transfer completes (TXEMPTY). What was your solution to the problem?
