    FX3 Firmware Writing + Return Codes

    ben.hilburn

       Hey all -

         

      I'm attempting to write an *.img file to the FX3 (sitting on the FX3 DVK board) from the command-line on a GNU/Linux system, and am receiving a return code of -9.  I have a couple of questions:

         

      1) Can bix, hex, ihx, etc., files be written to the FX3 RAM / EEPROM, as you could with the FX2, or do they need to be img files?

         

      2) Are these the only instructions regarding how to write firmware directly to the FX3 RAM?

      I would love to see a more in-depth instruction list, but that is the only thing I have been able to find so far.

         

      3) Is there a location that I can look up the error codes, e.g., the '-9' that I am seeing now?

         

      Thanks!

         

      Cheers,
