8 Replies and 1949 Views Load bin <stdin>  1949  8 Started by  jdionne What protocol does load command use to receive the file from the serial port. Tera Term Pro 'send file' function just seems to send the file in binary format. But when I try the same thing in my application the transfer always fails. Is the load command expecting some sort of packet like X-Modem I read the file into a binary array and loop through the array. Is there some sort of handshaking going on using 'load bin' Thanks Jeff

7 Replies and 1738 Views Run an application without using bootloader?  1738  7 Started by  Dag Hi everybody, I modifed the led_flasher sample application to do something more than just flashing a led and this works fine, both when I compile it for RAM and for flash memory. For some test purposes I want to run this application without first starting the bootloader. I therefor changed the CONFIG_APP_OFFSET variable in the makefile from 0x00100000 to 0x00000000. I load and burn the elf-file (I use Multi-ICE to restore the bootloader later), but the application does not start. Can anybody...

3 Replies and 1853 Views nIOWR and nIORD not strobing low  1853  3 Started by  marclai Hi, I am trying to write a compact flash low level driver (memory mapped mode). When trying to write to the following compact flash registers (via 16 bit writes) I have found that the nIOWR signal does not strobe low as I expect. Also nIORD does not strobe low on reads. According to the logicpd IO controller specification the compact flash is mapped at memory address range 0x60200000 to 0x603FFFFF. Looking at the schematic REG is tied to uP_MA12 so the compact flash registers start at 0x602...

Once CE boots I can open "My Device" -> "Storage Card" and then double click on boot_app (the extension is hidden)...

I've recently been tasked with trying to pull together a project using a Logic LH7A404 development board and LCD, but I've run into a snag. The pre-built image available for download ( includes the .NET Compact Framework V1 runtime components, but I am using VS2005 which only supports .NET CF V2 when building WinCE 5.0 projects.
