Part Number: LMK03806

Hi to all.

I have a LMK03806EVAL revB and i need use it with codeloader.

I have a pc WIN10 and a pcie LPT port.

the address i/o of my card is DFF8-DFFF range.

But if i set the codeloader port option at DFF8 the program crash.

Can you help me?

  • Hello Luca,

    Is there a reason you must use CodeLoader specifically? CodeLoader has been deprecated in favor of TICS Pro, which can program the device through a USB interface using the USB2ANY programmer and USB2ANY-to-UWIRE adapter board. Since CodeLoader CodeLoader deprecated, the support I can provide will be limited.

    It looks like the parallel port is registered at LPT1 in your screenshot... have you tried setting CodeLoader to LPT1 directly?

    i use code-loader because i don't have usb-any.
    And also because in the dev-board box there is only one adapter for the parallel port. Am I obliged to buy the usb device with the uwire adapter to use the board?

    If with codeloader I select LTP1 the program will not crash, but I cannot program the device.
    No problem with a second PC with win XP and "native" parallel port.

    But i need use the PC number 1, with win 10 e pcie parallel port.

    Hello Luca,

    It is very likely that CodeLoader cannot support the PCIe parallel port, or else there is some step that must be taken first to configure the PCIe parallel port card so that it behaves no differently from existing LPT interfaces. We do not actively develop CodeLoader any more, so if there is some CodeLoader issue which prevents finding your hardware, we will likely be unable to update the software.

    We strongly recommend using the USB2ANY and working with TICS Pro instead. The USB2ANY-to-UWIRE adapter board is not strictly required; you can manually connect the USB2ANY pins to the corresponding pins on the LMK03806 board. The critical pins are:

    • SYNC (USB2ANY pin 1 to EVM pin 1)
    • DATA (USB2ANY pin 4 to EVM pin 2)
    • CLK (USB2ANY pin 8 to EVM pin 4)
    • LE (USB2ANY pin 2 to EVM pin 6)
    • GND (USB2ANY pin 6 to EVM pin 9)

    You can also use CodeLoader or TICS Pro to export the register settings, and you can program the EVM using any other SPI-capable programmer you have available.

    Ok perfect! I need to buy usb2any device. Tnx!! Best regards

  • In reply to Derek Payne:

    Can you tell me if the programmare jlink (segger) with j-flash software is capable to write register of  lmk03806 device?

  • In reply to Luca Meloni:

    I'm not sure. I think J-Flash is intended for programming flash memory chips, so there are certain concepts like the control/program instructions that do not carry over. I think it would be more trouble than something like an FT232H-on-a-stick if you're just looking for an inexpensive SPI programmer and you're willing to write some DLL wrappers. On the other hand, TICS Pro does not currently support the FT232H or other third-party programmers, but the USB2ANY integrates seamlessly both for programming and live debugging.
