QUESTION

I have an Intel HEX file that I want to download to my target system. Is that possible?

ANSWER

Yes. The uVision Debugger has a built-in file loader that works with a number of different formats (OMF51, OMF251, OMF2, OMF166, ELF, and Intel-HEX). To simply download a program file you must:

  1. Start uVision and Create a New, Empty project.
  2. Under Options for Target - Debug select the target driver required to connect with your target system.
  3. Un-check Load Application at Startup.
  4. Start the debugger and watch the Command Window to make sure the debugger connects with the target system.
  5. Use the Load debugger command to load the program file.
