|TRACE32 (ICE, FIRE, ICD) supports the programming and erasure of internal FLASH memory on microcontrollers and external flash on the target by the FLASH command group. |
Address range, memory type and bus configuration of external FLASH memory has to be declared first by the FLASH.Create command, while internal FLASH memory is already predefined by TRACE32.
For other types or to increase programming speed the user can load his own programming routine into the target. The FLASH.TARGET command defines the program start address, data buffer address and buffer size. The programming and erase commands (described below) will call this user program with appropriate parameters.
After informing TRACE32 about FLASH memory in the memory space, the FLASH.Erase command erases a sector of the FLASH or the complete device.
Programming mode can be activated by the FLASH.Program command. All following memory modifications (e.g. Data.LOAD) within the activated address range issue a programming sequence.
