boot from SD-card

Hi All


The TWR-VF65GS10 Rev. H is delivered with an SD card containing code that boots. I don't know what the code does apart from blink a few LEDs, but it is obviously operational.


Now I have my own code and I would like to put it on the SD card so that it boots in the same way.


From what I can make out, a header needs to be added to the code (IVT, DCD, Boot data structures). Also it looks like this image is copied to the SD card in a RAW format (no FAT).


How does one do this?

- is there some PC program that generates the header? (input A5 and M4 programs - output a bootable image)?

- how does one write RAW data to an SD card using a PC - the supplied card looks to have a small FAT partition and lots of unused space where presumably the bootable code is hiding?


Since the SD card is probably the simplest method to use to start with (seeing that it can be programmed in another device) I expect that many people are using it for development work and so this must be a fairly standard procedure (some how).
