QUESTION

I want to load my target program into my hardware without using the monitor program (MON166). Is this possible? The monitor uses a serial port and interrupt that I need.

ANSWER

If you want to download your program using dScope or uVision, you must use the monitor program. There is no way to download the program to the hardware without the monitor.

You may use the MEMTOOL FLASH tools from Infineon to download your program to the FLASH memory of many of the 166 devices. Once downloaded, resetting the device will immediately start running your program. There is no built-in debugging available for this.

You may write a boot loader that loads your program into your hardware and starts it running. There is no debugging available for this.

You may use one of the numerous emulators to download your program into your target and run it with debugging.
