10.1 EDK - Base System Builder (BSB)-generated TestApp_Peripheral for ML507 fails when data section is placed in DDR2 memory


When Base System Builder is used to configure the ML507 board with the following selections:

1. Processor: PPC440

2. Memory controller: MPMC (the default memory controller is PPC440MC_DDR2)

3. Other IP: PCIe (BSB automatically instantiates xps_central_dma in the system)

4. Linker Script for TestApp_Peripheral: DDR2 memory is chosen for the data section

TestApp_Peripheral fails on xps_central_dma.


The work-around is to not change the default TestApp_Peripheral linker script selection, which is SRAM.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 10.1 Service Pack available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 10.1 Service Pack 3.
