OPERATION FLOW PANEL
Operation Flow Panel is used to determine what commands that will be automatically
performed during the programming when using the Program - All menu or the “Run”
button. The available commands are Check Signature, Erase, Blank Check, Program,
Verify, and Program Lock Bits.
For Erase command, if Preserve EEPROM on Chip Erase is checked/selected, then
only the Flash memory will be erased when the command is performed. Otherwise, if
Preserve EEPROM on Chip Erase is not checked/selected, then both the Flash memory
and the EEPROM memory will be erased when the command is performed.
For Program and Verify command, if “FLASH and EEPROM” is selected on the
Programmed Section panel then Program and Verify command will be performed on
both memories. Otherwise if only one of them is selected (FLASH or EEPROM), then the
Program and Verify command will only be performed in the selected memory.
Before selecting Program and Verify, make sure that the file that will be processed
have been decided beforehand. The file, that will be written to Flash or EEPROM, will
be displayed on the Hex File panel.
For Program Lock Bits command, the safety level for flash memory is determined in the
options in Software Lock Bits panel. If the chosen safety level is “No Protection” then
adding or reading the Flash memory code is still possible without performing Erase
command.
On the the next security level, adding code to the Flash memory can no longer be
performed, unless you perform Erase command beforehand.
On the highest level, adding and reading Flash memory reading can no longer be
performed, unless you perform Erase command beforehand.
After performing all commands in the Operation Flow, by selecting Program - All menu
or clicking the “Run” button, the AVR Bootloader v1.0 will automatically perform Reset
Chip so that the DT-AVR Bootloader Micro System exits bootloader and run the
programmed application.
However, if the programming options are done manually (by pressing Auto Detect
Device button, selecting Read - Chip Signature, and so on), then DT-AVR Bootloader
Micro System will still be in bootloader mode. And the Reset Chip button must be
pressed so that DT-AVR Bootloader Micro System module exits bootloader and
performs the programmed application commands.
Check/select Close after Run if you want AVR Bootloader v1.0 to automatically close
after performing all commands in Operation Flow. This function is useful when AVR
Bootloader v1.0 is combined with other IDE AVR such as CodeVisionAVR or BASCOMAVR.

CONFIGURATION EXAMPLES FOR CODEVISIONAVR
Combining the AVR Bootloader v1.0 with CodeVisionAVR is done by setting AVR
Bootloader v 1.0 to open automatically after compiling. This setting can be done via
the menu Project → Configure.
Figure 2
Project Configuration Menu
Select the “After Make” tab and then check/select “Execute User's Program”. After
that press the Program Settings button to bring up the “User Program Settings” dialog
window as shown in Figure 3.
Set the “Program Directory and Filename” option to indicate the location of theAVR
Bootloader v1.0 Software. After that press the ”OK” button.

Figure 4
Information Dialog Window After A Successful Make Process
After performing these steps, if Compile and Make process (e.g. by pressing the shift
+ F9 key) is succeeded, an information dialog window will appear as shown in Figure
4.
If the Make process is succeeded and the dialog window shown on Figure 4 appears,
simply hit the Enter key on the keyboard or press the “Execute User's Program” button
in the information dialog window to run the AVR Bootloader v1.0. After AVR
Bootloader v1.0 is open, you just need to hit Enter key on the keyboard or press the
"Run" button to start programming.
Don't forget to check the option "Close after Run" in order to close AVR Bootloader
v1.0 automatically after the rest of programming process is complete.

CONFIGURATION EXAMPLES FOR BASCOM-AVR
Combining the AVR Bootloader v1.0 with BASCOM-AVR is done by setting AVR
Bootloader v 1.0 to open automatically after compiling. This can be done by setting
the programmer type via menu Options → Programmer.
Figure 5
Programmer Configurations Menu
Set the programmer type to “External programmer” and check the “Program after
compile” option in order to open AVR Bootloader v1.0 automatically after successful
compilation.
Also set the file location to show the location of AVR Bootloader v 1.0 software. In the
example in figure 5, the location is in “D:\Project\AVR BOOT\AVR Bootloader
V1.0.exe“
After performing these steps, if Compile and Make process (e.g. by pressing F7) is
succeeded, AVR Bootloader v1.0 will run automatically. After the AVR Bootloader v1.0
opens, simply hit Enter key on the keyboard or press the "Run" button to start
programming.
