Issue Description
Secondary output file not generated
due to missing data in make file
when linked folder does not exist
Switching between the registers
multiple times in memory tab makes
memory tab flicker, gives stack
error and debugger hung
Solver does not allow allocating
more than 6 DMA channels to
connect to USIC channels.
Solver error occurs when trying to
share the same Analog for fourth
ADC_Measurement Channel
Project becomes unusable after
device migration failure due to
solver time-out.

Workaround
No
Restart DAVE
More the 6 DMA channels
