Hi all...

maybe this is too a basic question...

I was working with WinAvr, and have decided to work with winarm also.

So I downloaded the winarm20060606 and installed it, and opened the
programmers notepad from the pn folder and loaded a example project and
clicked "make All"

i get this message which is OK i think

You may have to bring the target in bootloader-mode now.

NOW I need information about --
 HOW to download into my flash of LPC2106 controller??

How do i satisfy this statement --->> You may have to bring the target
in bootloader-mode now.

Is it ok if i just connect a serial cable from my PC COM port to the
(OLIMEX LPC2106) Board DB9 connector ??

I am sure there must be some settings to be done before i program the
controller.

can any of u pls give me some information regarding this.

thanks for your time
cal.

This indicates that the COM-Port is either not available or it is used
by another software. USB-seriall-Adapter in use? The entry for the
COM-Port in the makefile which us used as parameter in the call of
lpc21isp must be the one connected to the LPC's UART0.

There are several solutions when using the LPC bootloader
- the method used (make program->call of lpc21isp) after correcting the
parameters
- the old Philips ISP tools
- Flash Magic

> How do i satisfy this statement --->> You may have to bring the target

Make shure the "BSL-Pin" is low before doing a reset (P0.14 on LPC2106),
see the LPC2106 user's manual. Depending on your hardware/board P0.14
and Reset might be controlled by the COM-Port status-outputs. If not it
has do be done manually: Hold P0.14 low, pulse Reset low, now the
booloader is active

Set the BSL-Jumper, Push the Reset button, release the reset-button, do
"make program".

See above, the user's manual, the NXP application-notes the Flashmagic
documentation.

It really helped me, and got me going on with my development.

I downloaded flash magic, since i could not find the link to old Philips
ISP tools.

I used flash magic to download and using the jumper on the BSL pins
during downloading the program and removing the jumper and pressing
reset for execution, it worked.

I noticed that, with "programmers notepad" i can "clean-all" and
"make-all" and also "make-program" to download the hex file into the
board and execute it without using the flash magic. !!  It worked and i
did not have to use flash magic at all.

So does it mean, i dont need flash magic to download the program onto my
board?

Yes. Flashmagic and lpc21isp are just different programs which can
"talk" to the LPC's internal bootloader. Read the LPC user's manual
(ISP) for further information.

thank you Thomas,

I am going through the manuals and other sources, Winarm is really so
easy, i remember installing eclipse, gnuarm, and cygwin and all other
tools, it was so complicated, now with winarm it seems much easy.

thanks.
