SERIAL0 CANT BE USED FOR MON390 ON DALLAS TINI M400

Applies to: MON390 Target Monitor

PROBLEM

When I change the MON390 configuration for the Dallas TINI-m400 board (..C51MON390Tinim400) to use the Serial 0 interface, µVision will not connect. The Serial 0 works fine with JavaKit or Dallas MTK. I have proven the baudrate with the µVision simulation.

CAUSE

The MON390 driver toggles DTR on the RS232 interface on connect. The DTR line is used to reset the controller on the TINI-m400. Every time you try to connect to the monitor this will stop the MON390 firmware and start the TINI bootloader.

SOLUTION

Attached to this article you will find a new version of MON390.dll. Download this file and configure your project as follows:

  1. Download the file and unpack it into ..C51BIN.
  2. Start µVision; open Options for Target - Debug - Settings.
  3. Enable Ignore Handshake Lines.

The lines DTR and RTS will not be toggled with this option enabled.
