EMX Keeps Rebooting


#1

I am new to the EMX, so I hope that I am just doing something silly.

I’ve been working on my custom application for a couple of days and all of a sudden, the board keeps rebooting. After manually resetting it, the screen went white. I figured I needed to update the board. I followed the instructions online and updated the board via Tera Term. Erased Everything (E) and Updated. Then used MFDeploy to CLR files. The board seem to be back to normal.

I put the GHI demo application into the board and that worked fine. Plugged my USB and it read, however, as soon as I plugged the Ethernet cable into the board, it began rebooting again. I take the Ethernet cable out and it stays up no problem.

Sounds to me like a hardware issue, but I am wondering if anybody has experienced this before? My custom application requires the use of the Ethernet port, so I am stuck. Any help is greatly appreciated it.

Welcome to the forum!

Not enough power. Use external power.

Any other hardware connected?

I plugged the board to external power and it stopped rebooting when the Ethernet cable would get plug in. It is odd that it worked fine for a couple of days running out of the USB power. But at least it is back up and running. Thanks for all the help!
