upload HEX file via serial port (Xloader or other tools)?

Post by stinkpot » Tue Apr 12, 2016 7:08 am

Hi,

is it possible to upload HEX file (generated by waspmote IDE) via any tools, like Xloader? So that it can quickly deploy waspmote board?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

at the end you are uploading an HEX file to a microcontroller, so yes, you can use other tools. But I think it can be dangerous because you can overwrite the bootloader, etc.

You can even use the avr tool directly, but the Libelium recommendation would be to always use the Waspmote IDE to ensure you don't damage the board.

Thanks Sisko for your contribution.

As he said we dont recommend due its a dangerous process, if the board get damage during this procedure it will avoid the warranty.

Thanks.
The issue is, when development finished, we need more massive deployment that IDE tools is not a ideal system for technical to prepare the product. HEX upload is more friendly just one click then everything done. Is there any tools available for WaspMote?

Thanks.

Hi stinkpot,

are you still looking for the tool? We developed a very user-friendly one specifically for the Waspmote P&S.

Hi libelium-dev,

technically it's a part of our solution Elmitel Sensing, so I'd rather share it with anyone interested if they send me the PM, together with some explanations.

We're not publishing the tool as such on the Internet.

So, to whoever interested: just send me the PM.
