Production programming Flash with jtag

Started by Steve Thornhill January 19, 2003
Hi,

I need to set up a PC to program the flash on a custom 6711 board using a JTAG
emulator. FlashBurn appears to require CCS 2.1 I really don't want to give our
production department a full version of CCS. Is there anyway to use FlashBurn
without CCS or does TI have a standalone utility for programming Flash in
circuit with a JTAG ( we are using Spectrum Digital parallel port emulator )?

Thanks

Steve Thornhill



Why need you use flashburn? It is limited in many ways. You can write your own
code to program your flash according to the reference of the flash you use.

I was hoping to find a simple a way to allow a technician to program a blank
flash in circuit. I was hoping that there was an existing utility to do this
rather than having to write a custom application. Since the flash is socketed we
can use a chip burner for this first run but for the next board rev I hope we
can eliminate the socket.

Having had some experience in this area in working on multi-DSP systems for
Sanmina,
I would give you a suggestion, but it may not be as easy an answer as you're
looking
for. Presumably you have to write some diagnostics or other test code that
manufacturing needs to run on your assembled boards? If so, then you can make
one of
the first steps in the code (after verifying JTAG / HPI / other test system
interface) the FLASH download.

If you only have the JTAG interface available, and don't want to mess with CCS
on the
assembly line, then I would suggest talking to TI or Spectrum Digital and see if
they
have a utility that does just enough to download a program and run it.

Steve
We are faced with a similar problem of needing to program flash (during
manufacturing) of a C6713 based peripheral. At this stage we were thinking
of having to use CCS and either flashburn or a custom app. We'll probably
go the custom app route as we want the app (that we download to the DSP) to
some h/w testing as well as programming the flash.

Depending on your quantity, Viking-InterWorks (subdiv of Sanmina) will assemble
*and*
test it for you using a functional test system, including EEPROM programming.

Contact Don Coffin <> to find out what tests they can
run.
