Flashing ATSAMD21E18A with bootloader-serpente-v3.10.0.bin

by alborz on Tue Sep 08, 2020 6:36 am

Hi,
(Let me start by saying that I am new o UF2 and circuit python)

I have developed a custom board based on https://circuitpython.org/board/serpente/.
If I understand the process correctly I should first burn the UF2 bootloader and then add circuit python.

The bootloader is available here https://github.com/adafruit/uf2-samdx1/releases as a .bin file.
I was expecting the bootloader to be in another format maybe .s19 or .elf.

Could someone please explain how I should use this file, I am using the following programmer http://www.pemicro.com/products/product_viewDetails.cfm?product_id=15320165&productTab=6 and to start with this programmer does not expect .bin files.

I looked briefly at the Cyclone manuals. It looks like it will take .hex. There are conversion utilities to convert .bin to .hex. Or, you can build the bootloader yourself. The .elf file is produced as part of the build process, and is then converted to .bin.

I had never heard of .s19 before this, but I see from a websearch that there are also utilities to convert from .bin to .s19
