4.0 BLUEBOARD-LPC1343 Programming
4.1 Programming options
BlueBoard-LPC1343 can be programmed using the
 On-chip bootloader (USB or UART)
 Debugger (NGX CoLink)
19
www.ngxtechnologies.com
User Manual: BlueBoard-LPC1343
4.1.1 On-Chip bootloader (USB or UART)
In order to program the board either through USB or UART we need to get the board under
programming mode.
Getting the board in programming mode:
Theory: The On-chip bootloader looks for a logic LOW to be present on a pre-defined PIN (ISP pin)
during reset. If the ISP pin is held LOW and reset signal is provided to the MCU, the MCU enters into
programming mode.
Practical:
On the BlueBoard-LPC1343 the RESET and ISP signals are connected to buttons provided on the board.
Look for the RESET and ISP marking on the board. Therefore to enter into programming mode:
 Press and hold the ISP button
 Press the RESET button and release it
 Now release the ISP button
 The board is in the programming mode
We know that the on-chip bootloader can be used with USB or UART. Please note that if you have
connected a USB cable to the board the USB bootloader is activated else the UART bootloader is
activated. Meaning, if you have connected the USB cable as your power source then you cannot use
UART bootloader, you need to use an alternate external power source (DC jack) to enable UART
bootloader. If a particular MCU supports USB bootloading it is highly recommended to use the same for
programming.
Programming through USB is the most convenient way to program the BlueBoard-LPC1343. The
LPC1343 has an on-chip USB bootloader support which makes programming the board very simple.
You don't require any PC application to program using USB bootloader. Once the board enters the
programming mode it appears as a drive on your Windows machine and all you need to do is just dragn-drop your binary to this drive.
Note: Not all NXP USB MCUs support USB boot loading. For example the LPC11U14 does not support
USB bootloader although it has support for USB on the chip.
4.1.2 Flashing the board using USB
The pre-build binaries can be used to flashing onto to the board for each peripheral by using the USB
bootloader as a Mass storage device. Press SW4, then SW5; release SW5, then SW4, the mass storage
device will appear on your screen. On the board LED D1 glows. Remove firmware.bin file and then
place your bin file and then press reset switch to execute the specific code written on to the flash.

4.2 Flashing the Hex file through UART
Step 1: Connect the serial cable to the PC as well as to the board UART and open the flash magic tool.
Step 2: Input all the parameters as shown in below Fig.
Fig. 31
Step 3: Click Start to flash the hex file. Press Reset switch to run.
NOTE: Make sure that the Board is not powered through USB.

6.0 Trouble Shooting
For newly created bin file you should update crc.
Unfortunately, the checksum generated is not correct and unless the checksum of the .bin file is
modified, the firmware will be rejected by the USB bootloader. Thankfully, this is relatively easy to fix.
There is free utility to fix the checksum. A pre-compiled version for Windows (named lpcrc.exe) is also
located in the root folder. To fix the checksum, simply go into the command-line and go to the root
folder where both the lpcrc.exe tool and your .bin file are located (the file will be named 'firmware.bin'
unless you have modified the Makefile), and enter the following command:
Fixing the firmware.bin Checksum
