download boot code to rom

Started by fedelegger November 11, 2002
Hi everybody,
We made a board with a 6211 dsp. To debug it we use the XDS510PP
emulator via JTAG. As a testbed, we used a 6711 dsk.
To program the rom on the dsk, ti provides a flash programming
utility which downloads the hex file to the rom. Unfortunately it
works only with the dsk...so now how could I download my hex file to
the rom on our board? Is there any utility like the one that comes
with the dsk? Do I have to write my own utility? If this is the case,
how should I proceed? I had a look at the code coming with the dsk,
and that contains some call to dsk_hpi_xxx functions. Are there
functions like those that work with generic c6211 boards?
TIA

You need to write "boot code" yourself. First you should convert .out file or
.hex file into "binary stream", i.e. the thing you can see in "disassembly
window" of your ccs. Then you should write a new .cmd file that map your code
into the flash space. Last you can use these data to program your flash or
eeprom.

You can reference "spra568.pdf" for program flash.
