Programming an Open Revolt controller
 
Hello all! It's been far, far, faaaaar too long. But I've been around, and I'm here again.

I'm partially through assembly of a 1000 amp IGBT controller, just the same as I was 2 years ago (gasp! Has it been that long!?).

What's the current firmware?

If I'm programming via USBtinyISP and avrdude, what file do I need? A .hex, .c, or .h?

My chip is 100% raw. Do I need a bootloader?

I have this board (not that it matters):

Pls excuse me going offtopic but isn't this the first public appearance of "new" control board? Or am I a bit "outdated" and there're some other pictures/schematics somewhere?

This board was a 1kA run produced near the beginning of 2011, actually.

I think this is what I used. It has been a while. avrdude needs to point to where the file is first.


avrdude -p m8 -c sp12 -P lpt1 -e -U flash:w:coug-unified-16km8.hex



RTD Explorer works easier.

RTD may work easier, but I don't have my serial port up and running yet - and the chip is a raw chip.

I think I've got it ready to go...

I like how it thanks you at the end.

That's some polite electronics! :thumbup:

Programming is all good. It's up and running!
