1.4 Programming Algorithms and Licenses
FlashRunner FRPXIA3 includes programming algorithms for several
devices. In order to program a specific device, however, a specific license
file for that device must be purchased.
i
Note: FlashRunner FRPXIA3 comes already preinstalled
with the license(s) you specified at the moment of purchase.
You can purchase additional licenses at any future moment.
Programming algorithms and license files are stored in the SD card (see the
FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual for more information).
1.4.1
Installing New Licenses
When you buy an additional license for a specific device, you will get:


An algorithm file (.alg);
A license file (.lic);
17
Overview

1
A device-specific script example (.frs).
The .alg file contains the actual programming algorithm for the requested
device (and several other devices of the same family).
The .lic file contains an unlocking code that will let you use the programming
algorithm. A license file enables the use of a specific programming algorithm
on a specific FlashRunner instrument (licenses are serial number specific).
The script file contains an example of script to use as a starting point for your
specific programming needs (for more information on scripts, see the
FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual).
To install the new license, do the following (for each programming module):
1. Copy the .alg file into the \ALGOS directory of the SD card (if an .alg
file with the same name already exists, overwrite it);
2. Copy the .lic file into the \LICENSES directory of the SD card.
To copy files on the SD card, use either a standard card reader connected to
a PC or transfer the files using the FlashRunner FSSENDFILE command
(for more information on FlashRunner commands, see the FlashRunner
Programmer’s Manual).
Alternatively, you can use the FlashRunner FRPXIA3 Control Panel utility to
install new programming algorithms and licenses. For more information on
the FlashRunner FRPXIA3 Control Panel please refer to the FlashRunner
Programmer’s Manual.
1.5 Upgrading the Firmware
The FlashRunner engine firmware can be easily upgraded using the
provided Control Panel utility. For more information, please refer to the
FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual.

2 System Setup
2.1 Overview
i
Note: the example shows how to set up the system for
programming a Freescale MC68HC908QY4 microcontroller.
For how to connect to other target devices, please refer to
the FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual.
This chapter will explain how to set up FlashRunner FRPXIA3 for the first
time. The examples in this chapter will use the host system to send
commands to FlashRunner.
When moving FlashRunner to the production environment, you can take full
advantage of the instrument’s SD cards to make the instrument work without
being controlled by the host system using script files.
For more information about the use of script files, see the FlashRunner
Programmer’s Manual.
2.2 Installing the module
Please follow these steps for the FlashRunner FRPXIA3 installation:
1. Power off and unplug the PXI/CompactPCI chassis;
2. Align the module’s edge with the card guide in the PXI/CompactPCI
chassis;
3. Slide the module into the chassis until the ejector handle locks in the
up position;
4. Tighten the screw on the front panel;
5. Power on the PXI/CompactPCI chassis;
6. If you are using a Remote Controller you must restart the PC;

2.4 Step-by-Step Tutorial: Sending Commands to
FlashRunner
After setting up the hardware, you are ready to send commands to the
instrument. The following steps will guide you through the process of
launching your first FlashRunner commands using the provided FlashRunner
FRPXIA3 Control Panel utility. For detailed information about the
FlashRunner FRPXIA3 Control Panel utility, see the FlashRunner
Programmer’s Manual.
i
Note: the following steps show how to program a Freescale
MC68HC908QY4 microcontroller, and the details are
therefore specific for that microcontroller. However, the
procedures shown are general and will allow you get a feel
of how FlashRunner works.
1. To launch the FRPXIA3 Control Panel utility, select Start >
Programs > SMH Technologies > FRPXIA3 > FRPXIA3 Control
Panel. The Control Panel utility will open.

2. To establish a connection with FlashRunner, on the
“Communication Settings” click the “Scan FRPXIA3 devices”
button. Follow the message box instruction and select the device in
the scroll-down menu.
i
Note: if you have more than one FRPXIA3 installed in your
chassis, all devices will be showed on the “Select Device”
scroll-down menu.
25
Connectors
3. Select the device and click the “Connect” button. On the
“Communication History” section, note the commands that have been
sent and received. In this case, the MCSPING and MCSETENG ENG1
command are automatically sent to FlashRunner, which replies with the
PONG> string and > string. The MCSETENG ENG1 instructs the
instrument to send all subsequent command to the first programming
module.
4. Send the following additional commands:
3
TCSETDEV
TCSETPAR
TCSETPAR
TCSETPAR
FREESCALE MC68HC908QY4 HC08
FOSC 16000000
FDIV 4
VDD 5000
These commands set, respectively, the target microcontroller, the
oscillator frequency, the internal divisor and the VDD voltage. In this
example, we used a 16 MHz oscillator, the internal divisor for
MC68HC908QY4 devices is fixed to 4, and the VDD is 5V. FlashRunner
will respond to each command with the > string, indicating that the
command has been successfully executed. After sending these
commands, the Control Panel will look like the figure below.

5. When working with Freescale HC08 devices, FlashRunner requires you
to specify the power up and power down times, in milliseconds. Send the
following two commands:
TCSETPAR PWDOWN 10
TCSETPAR PWUP 10
6. After specifying the target device settings, we are ready to transfer to
FlashRunner the binary image to be programmed into the target device.
FlashRunner accepts only image files in a .frb (FlashRunner Binary)
format. To convert your binary, Intel-Hex or S19 image file to the
FlashRunner format, click the “Create FlashRunner Binary Format”
button. The following dialog box will appear.
27
Connectors

Figure 12: FlashRunner FRPXIA3 Control Panel, Binary File Conversion
In the “Input” section, specify the source file to be converted, its
format, and the address from which the file conversion will start (offset).
In the “Output” section, specify the output filename and the value used
to fill unused locations.
Click the “OK” button. The FlashRunner Binary file will be created in
the local \BINARIES folder.
7. To transfer the created image to selected programming module, click the
button “Send FlashRunner Binary File”. Select the file to begin the
transfer. The file will be saved on the SD card of the selected
programming module, in the \BINARIES folder.
8. We are now ready to start the actual programming part. Send the
following commands:
TPSETSRC FILE DEMO.FRB
TPSTART
TPCMD SETPWD CONST $FF $FF $FF $FF $FF $FF $FF $FF
TPCMD MASSERASE F

TPCMD PROGRAM F $EE00 $EE00 4608
TPCMD VERIFY F S $EE00 $EE00 4608
TPEND
The data to be programmed is taken from the image file starting at
$EE00 (offset from the beginning of the file), is programmed to the
target microcontroller starting from the location $EE00 and is 4608
bytes long.
The TPSETSRC command specifies the source file for the TPCMD
PROGRAM e TPCMD VERIFY commands that come next. All the actual
programming operations are sent between a TPSTART and TPEND
command. The TPCMD SETPWD command sets the security bytes
needed to perform subsequent operations.
9. We are now done with programming the target device. Click the
“Disconnect” button to free pci resource.
For detailed information on all of the FlashRunner commands and their
syntax, including specific commands for specific family of microcontrollers,
please refer to the FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual, included (in PDF
format) in the FlashRunner CD-ROM.
Programming can be automated by creating “scripts”. Scripts are text files,
stored in the SD cards, which contain a sequence of FlashRunner
commands. See the FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual for more
information about scripts.
The FRPXIA3 Control Panel has a useful example of typical user application
that implement the parallel programming using scripts. See the FlashRunner
Programmer’s Manual for more information about scripts before continue to

3.2 ISP Connectors
The ISP connector contains the 3 ISP programming channels; it has several
input/output lines, both digital and analog that are automatically configured
by FlashRunner depending on the specific target device to be programmed
(see the FlashRunner Programmer’s Manual to learn how to connect these
lines to your specific target device).
Note: ISP and I/O signal are not optoisolated and are
referenced to GND (the power supply chassis ground).
