We connect the modem directly to Lisa. Lisa voltage input is connected to 12V.
For airspeed ets and gps, we are using a separate L7805CV and convert 12V to 5V. It's capable of delivering 1.5A, but I must check if the voltage drops temporarily below 5V.

Lisa M does not always upload correctly. I mean the problematic part of the code as the corrupted part of the uploaded code. It does not correlate with a burst of telemetry.
Our airspeed ets sensor's I2C inputs are always connected to Lisa, also during upload. Although we do not give power to the Ets in the upload, its 7 segment display works and blinks. I think that it takes power from I2C pins. Does it create a problem in the upload?
That makes me very suspicious of a power supply problem. Increasing the power supply (or powering the modem independently) is so much simpler than a failsafe/failover system.
Sorry if you've exhausted this line of enquiry already, but these components are usually very reliable so something must be going wrong.
What is the problematic part of the code? Does it correlate with a burst of telemetry transmission?
What peripherals do you have on the powered from the autopilot?
