boot loader basics with k60

Hello everyone,


I currently use a K60(MK60FN1MOVLQ12) and a PE Micro programmer to program the micro-controller,Is there any way i can use a boot loader sequence so that i can program nmy uC using a simple UART port.

My apologies if i sound vague,but i have never used a boot loader before and if some one could give me some relevant documents so that i can read up on it for this particular micro-controller.


My main goal however is to program the uC through one of the UART ports.I have read up on this a little ,but its all too confusing for me !!!


Correct me if i am wrong but this is what i got so far:

1.I enter the boot loader mode by setting a particular pin low(i am planning to use a jumper here to enter the bootloader mode)

2.Send some initial parameters.

3.Copy the .elf file into the RAM at a specific address .

4.Boot the uC and erase the RAM if required.


Any help would be highly appreciated.
