Microchip Pic24f Serial Boot Loader

To take advantage of this capability, bootloader firmware must reside within memory to provide self-programming capability to the microcontroller. Since developing custom bootloader code can be a complex and time consuming process, we provide tools that will generate bootloader firmware for your application. The table below can be used to identify the proper bootloader solution for your application, based on the PIC microcontroller (MCU) you are using.

To complement the Bootloader Generator, we also provide a Bootloader Host application. This tool is used to transfer new application code to the embedded device that contains the bootloader code. This GUI application can communicate with the target device through either UART, I2C, USB, or Ethernet protocols. The Bootloader Host application can be used to program the Flash memory for 8-bit PIC MCUs and also supports EEPROM writes.

In addition to saving development time and cost, these tools also assist you with creating secure and reliable bootloaders. This includes detecting and recovering from a failed boot load as well as restricting read access of the program memory. Using these tools will help ensure robust operation that will greatly enhance the flexibility of an embedded application, whether it is currently in development or already being used by a customer.

To take advantage of this connectivity, bootloader firmware must reside within memory to provide self-programming capability to the microcontroller. Developing custom bootloader code can be a complex and time-consuming process. We provide a 16-bit bootloader to assist developers using PIC24 microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC33 Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs). The simple GUI interface enables you to create bootloader firmware designed to suit your application needs. We also provide application firmware configuration that enables you to easily customize the bootloader with your application.

To complement the bootloader generator, we also provide a unified bootloader host application. This tool is used to transfer new application code to the embedded device that contains the bootloader code. This GUI application can communicate with the target device using the bootloader command protocol through any of the supported physical layer interfaces.

We ported the open source ds30 Loader bootloader to the web platform so it can be programmed through the USB connection; no PIC programmer required. The ds30 Loader project has serial bootloader firmware for most PICs, and bootloader software for most computer operating systems. The bootloader is programmed into the chip once with a PIC programmer like an ICD or PICKIT, then future updates can be done over the USB port.

One of the most difficult things to deal with is upgrading a products firmware to fix a bug for products that are already in the field. It can be expensive and time consuming to do a recall of the products or send technicians to update the firmware. One option is to add a bootloader to the product. By using a bootloader it is possible to update a products firmware automatically or by the end user. One of the easiest type of bootloader to implement is a serial bootloader.A serial bootloader uses a serial connection, RS232 for example, to transfer the new firmware from a PC to the product, which is then programmed onto the product by a small program that runs on the device. To aid in quickly developing a serial bootloader, the CCS C Compiler has bootloader code that can be included in your project, as well has a PC program that can be used to transfer the firmware to product.The CCS C Compiler provides the following bootloader examples, ex_bootloader.c and ex_pcd_bootloader.c. The first is an example of a serial bootloader for PIC16 and PIC18 devices, PCM and PCH compilers, and the second is an example of a serial bootloader for PIC24, dsPIC30 and dsPIC33 devices, PCD compiler. Both are an example of a standalone bootloader. Standalone bootloaders are small programs that run on the device that are responsible for both receiving the firmware and for programming it onto the device. In general, standalone bootloaders do not require the application for them to work. The size of a serial bootloader program depends on the device they are being used on, for example the CCS serial bootloader for PIC18 devices use 1280 instructions or 2560 bytes of ROM and always remains at the same location in ROM. Some PIC MCUs allow you to specially code protect the bootloader area in ROM. Additionally the CCS C Compiler provides the following bootloader applications, ex_bootload.c and ex_pcd_bootload.c. Both are examples of applications that can be bootloaded onto a device using the ex_bootloader.c and ex_pcd_bootloader.c bootloaders. The key difference between a standard application and one that can be bootloaded is that the bootloadable application reserves an area of ROM for the bootloader. Frequently that area includes the reset and interrupt vectors so the application will use an alternate area that the bootloader can link to. In general #including the same bootloader.h file that the bootloader uses is all that needs to be done to build an application that is compatible with the bootloader.Here is a memory map for a low memory bootloader:A key consideration for bootloaders is deciding when to bootload. The bootloader program starts when the chip starts. If there is no application program in memory then it goes into bootload mode. That is the easy case. For reloading, a button could be used, for example hold that button down, power up and the bootloader sees the button down and starts the loading process. The application itself could trigger a bootload by writing a value to EEPROM and then resetting, the bootloader would see the special value and could force a bootload.Finally CCS provides a PC program, CCS Bootloader, that can be used to transfer firmware (a .hex file) from a PC to a device that is running a CCS C Compiler bootloader. The CCS Bootloader program is a command line utility that may be distributed as part of the user's end product.It should be noted that the CCS IDE new project Wizard has an option to create a bootloader for you.CCS has done bootloaders that work over USB, I2C, CAN, SD cards, USB Flash sticks, TCP/IP and HTTP.
