ISPnano - ConsoleEDS PROFESSIONAL - Development Pack

 
 
 

ConsoleEDS is a powerful utility which allows an Equinox ISP Programmer to be controlled via simple Command Line commands.

ConsoleEDS is a ‘Console Application’ and can be used to control an Equinox programmer from a Remote Application using a simple set of commands executed via the ‘Command Line’ in Windows. This protocol is ideal for controlling Equinox programmers from any Remote Application which runs under Windows and which is capable of shelling out to a ‘Console Application’.

Implementation of this protocol is straightforward due to the limited number of commands and restricted functionality. As this is a ‘Console Application’ running under Windows, it can be quickly evaluated by launching a ‘Command Window’ within any Windows session.

Main Features of ConsoleEDS

Please note:
Many of these features are only accessible when using either the ‘Standard’ or ‘Professional’ versions of ‘ConsoleEDS.

  • Allows an Equinox ISP Programmer to be remote controlled via simple Command Line commands.
  • Suitable for interfacing to any application which executes under Windows
  • Simple Command Line interface makes even complex programming operations simple to implement
  • Supports writing of a block of data from a file to the FLASH or EEPROM of a Target IC
  • Supports reading of a block of data from the FLASH or EEPROM of the Target Chip to a file on the PC hard disk
  • Supports uploading of pre-compiled standalone ‘Programming Projects’ to a target programmer without requiring EQTools or the Project Upload Wizard.
  • Supports running of a specified ‘Programming Project’ which has already been uploaded into the programmer ‘FLASH Memory Store’
  • Supports programming of the ‘Configuration Fuses’ of the Target IC
  • Supports programming of the ‘Security Fuses’ of the Target IC
  • Supports automatic generation of and programming of unique information such as serial numbers and calibration data
  • Supports reading / writing of Atmel AVR  on-chip Oscillator Calibration Byte

Console EDS Schematic

Evaluation v Standard v Professional

There are three different version of ConsoleEDS available:

1. The EVALUATION (EVAL) version is designed to allow a firmware developer to integrate the Equinox ISP Programming functionality into the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) which is being used for code development. ConsoleEDS EVAL version is bundled with EQTools.

2. The STANDARD version of ConsoleEDS offers full control of the attached Equinox Programmer via a comprehensive set of Command Line commands. It is possible to not only program data from a file, but also read back blocks of data to file, program / read Configuration / Security Fuses etc. It is also possible to upload ‘Standalone Programming Projects’ to an attached programmer from the Command Line.

3. The ‘PROFESSIONAL (PRO)’ version of ConsoleEDS supports all the same features as ConsoleEDS STANDARD.It also supports the following additional features:
ConsoleEDS Multi-Port (supports operation of multiple sessions of ConsoleEDS on multiple PC Serial ports)
ConsoleEDS Multi-Node (supports simultaneous control of up to 32 programmers)
Scripting Commands (supports executing of ‘Programming Scripts’)
Supports automatic generation of an incremental serial number or MAC address which can then be programmed into the FLASH or EEPROM area of the Target Chip.

Please note:

The Standard version is only applicable to the Production programmers, i.e FS2003, FS2009, PPM3-MK2, PPM4-MK1 and ISPnano.

The Professional version is only applicable to the high-end, high volume Production programmers, i.e. PPM3-MK2, PPM4-MK1 and ISPnano.

Development Pack or Run-time License

ConsoleEDS is also available as “Development Pack” or a “Run-time License”.

The “Development Pack” is required in order to get started with ConsoleEDS. It includes all the relevant licenses for either ConsoleEDS ‘STANDARD’ or ‘PRO’ plus documentation and technical support from Equinox to get your first ConsoleEDS project up-and-running.

The “Run-time License” is required for each additional programmer after the initial “Development Pack” has been purchased. It includes all the relevant licenses for either ConsoleEDS ‘STANDARD’ or ‘PROFESSIONAL’ for a single programmer. No documentation or technical support is offered with this version. It is aimed at customers who are already proficient at using ConsoleEDS and who have already purchased a “Development Pack”.
