IF the chip has been loaded with the bootloader already, you simply have to attach the controller to the computer with a straight through serial cable. This would be the same serial cable that would be use for RTD Explorer.

Here is a video I made tonight showing how to connect the controller to the controller, where to get RTD Explorer and firmware files and how to upgrade the firmware.
