stellaris LM3S8971

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LM3S8971, EK-LM3S9D90, LMFLASHPROGRAMMER

Hi guys, I am trying to schedule a control card LM3s8971 of the stellaris family, but still can't find the program to do so, you know what kind of program is? As with the LM Flash Programr i can only make communication but I can't load to the card pre-loaded programs.


-brushless DC (BLDC) Moto Control Board wint ethernet and CAN.



  • The Stellaris RDKs do not come with an in-circuit debug interface. 

    There are two ways to connect and download code to the RDK-BLDC.

    Method 1 is to connect  a JTAG emulator pod such as found in the EK-LM3S9D90 (also 9B90 and 9B92 and 9D92) kits.  The board JTAG connector is standard ARM 10 pin.  If you are using Keil or IAR or another tool chain their debug adapters will work as well.  

    Method 2 is to use the USB to UART cable and LMFlashProgrammer.  Configure LMFlash for Manual mode and use UART settings.  Find the COM port that your computer assigned to the USB to UART adapater.  This method relys on the internal bootloader that is programmed into the flash of the LM3S8971.  You must provide an offset for programming the bin file in the LMFlash dialogs.

    It is easy to overwrite this bootloader with LMFlash If you do so you will no longer be able to use the UART method.  You will need a JTAG adapter.
