Transform a DEMO9S12NE64 into a powerful Ethernet based BDM programmer

Hi All

It is a goal that I set myself sometime ago and finally I can proudly present a first version of a BDM for the M9S12NE64.

In fact it’s not a BDM as such because it is a guide and a software package which allows anyone with a DEMO9S12NE64 (or other demo/eval board) to simply convert it into a powerful Ethernet based BDM programming tool. The main interest being to allow a simple transfer from the stage as developer with the DEMO9S12NE64 – where programming and debugging is performed often using the pre-installed Freescale™ Serial Monitor – to your own boards requiring a BDM to program application software or the Serial Monitor.

I built myself a BDM a long time ago so that I could program fresh devices as an experiment and I have now finally found some time to get it into a form which will be useful for anyone wanting or needing such a tool. It is reliable and easy to use. It uses and demonstrates some features of the uTasker operating system and TCP/IP stack since it is based on it

It is now available as a guide with software kit. Simply build a 3-wire cable to attach the DEMO9S12NE64 to a target, load the software and start programming over the network. I hope that you find it of great use – it is offered free and can be downloaded from the uTasker web site. Find it under “Projects and Application Notes” here: http://www.utasker.com/docs/documentation.html

If you try it please tell me how you get on and what you think of this first version.

Regards

Mark,

I tried your BDM_ne64_B1.0.s19 & uTaskerV1.3.0003 for the NE12 and all I get is LED1 flashing.  There is no ethernet connectivity.  Am I missing something?  I am using the DEMO9S12NE64 box.

 

Thanks,

 

B.K.

Hi

 

If the LED is blinking (2.5Hz) the SW is running.

Try pinging addres 192.168.0.3 (you may need to ensure that your PC is set up suitably - ie. that it is in the same sub-net - changes can later be made and saved via web browser).

 

Remember also that the NE64 has a bug in the auto-negotiation and so may not always work. If possible try it connected to a different hub or different switch since some don't allow the auto-negotation to complete. This can also be changed to a fix speed to work around a certain connection case.

 

Regards

 

Mark
