GUI Interface Mode
This mode displays a dialog box that
enables the user to select the DSP to be programmed and set
all the programming parameters in a well designed and easy
to understand format. This user interface (see the image on
the right) is the same as that of the CCS Flash Programmer
plug-in, which practically eliminates the learning curve for
the users who are already familiar with the plug-in.
Command Line Mode
This mode of operation uses commands
generated with the GUI interface or created by the user in
the form of batch files to program the C2000 DSP. Since once
set up, it does not require any software skills or DSP
knowledge on the part of the operator, this mode is best
suited to flash programming in an automated production
environment. To program a large number of devices, the
operator simply click an icon or executes a batch file that
guides him or her through the entire process. Shown below is
an example of the command to program a single TMS320F2808
device with the main.out image file.
C> Flash2000 -use prg2808.txt -f
In our example, all erase and programming parameters are
stored in the prg2808.txt file.
