    Bootloader Host Self Bootload

    userc_40329

      Hello everyone,

         

      I recently downloaded the Bootloader Host application from the below link:

         

      http://www.cypress.com/documentation/application-notes/an68272-psoc-3-psoc-4-and-psoc-5lp-uart-bootloader

         

      The application uses a DVK(PSoC 5LP) as a bootloading device to connect to and bootload other PSoC devices. I was wondering if this operation is possible to implement on a single board by modifying the application.

         

      For example can I download an arbitrary bootloadable.cyacdn file, parse it to a string image and bootload the same device from this string image? Basically can the device bootload itself with this Bootloader Host application?

         

      Thank you in advance,
      Kaan

          Hello,

             

          So in this case you boot loader will have the string parser application and the .cyacd file. Also you need to modify the bootloader component such a way that it does not use any communication component.Also you will have to make sure that tha PSoC5LP flash must have enough memory to store th .cyacd and have a bootlodable project.

             

          Thanks,
