How to download bin file using third party programmer?

We want to programm the otp chip directly using third party programmer, so I give the programme factory a short introduction including how I program the hex file and otp header by SmartSnippets using a jtag. But now they complain the hex file can not fit into their programmer,the address is wrong,ask me if I could give them a bin file instead of hex file. So my question:

1. Can I directly use hex2bin.exe to transform the app hex file into bin file?

2. Should I merge the header(which makes the firmware bootlable) into the bin file?

If I want to make bin file

If I want to make bin file from keil formelf.exe, it does not generate one bin file, but 5 bin file.

Hi cgha,

Hi cgha,

  1. Yes, you can use directly the hex2bin.exe to transform the app hex file into bin file.
  2. Which header? Do you want to burn OTP or Flash? In case of Flash the header in 8bytes added on the top pf binary image.
  3. I would suggest you to use the hex2bin.exe file regarding your last question.

Thanks, PM_Dialog

I want to burn into onchip

I want to burn into onchip otp. I've successfully use bincombine argument of fromelf.exe to generate one bin file. So does DA14580 support off chip program(I mean does not use isp mode).

Hi cgha,

Hi cgha,

Can you please clarify your last question? What do you mean with “off chip program” ? For burning the OTP, we strongly recommend the usage of SmartSnippets toolbox. In addition, CLI commands can be used as well.

Thanks, PM_Dialog

Hi cgha,

Hi cgha,

I am not sure if I understood completely your question, but you should use the SmartSnippets toolbox or the CLI commands in order to burn the on-chip OTP.
