What is it?
It's a Bootloader for Microchip, Atmel, NXP, TI and 8051 devices.
A Bootloader is a firmware running in the microcontroler device which allows the user to send it's own firmware without the need of a programmer.
This Bootloader consists of:
- firmwares for many devices (this firmware need to be send to the device's flash memory with a programmer, only once)
- a PC software which communicates with the bootloader firmware in the device and send the user's program in its memory
Where does it come from?
This Bootloader is based on "Tiny PIC Bootloader" made by Claudiu Chiculita.
A special THANK to him!!!
