boot loader . is it a must ?
« on: January 19, 2007, 09:11:04 pm »
hello all
greetings

I am a new to flash magic and phillips 8051 programming . I have got a few basic questions regarding this.
i wanted to know whether flash magic has a boot loader programme which is downloaded to the chip before the actual programme is downloaded . If so , could you please specify the location to where the boot loader programme goes to ?

thanking you .
abdul aziz

The bootloader is programmed into the device at the factory by NXP. Some devices have user-upgradeable bootloaders, but they all come with a bootloader.
