Flash Programming Dialog

Refer to Utilities for a description of the fields.

Usage Hints

  • Enable Use Debug Driver when using the Debugger adapter as a debug and Flash programming unit.
  • Enable Update Target before Debugging to download the application to Flash whenever a new debugging session is started. The download is processed only when the binary was updated since the last Flash programming step (this feature is to avoid unnecessary reprogramming sequences).


    • When switching between µVision instances, use the explicit "Load" button to ensure that the image of the current target is downloaded to Flash.
    • When disabled and the application was not downloaded manually to Flash, you may enable the option Options for Target - Debug - Settings - Debug - Verify Code Download to ensure program correlation between the target system and the µVision debugger.
  • Enter a Pre-Download Script into the field Init File to specify commands which prepare the device for Flash programming. For example, to configure the bus.
  • Enable Use External Tool for Flash Programming to enter options for third-party command-line based utilities that are not in the list of target drivers. You can use Key Sequences.
