When connecting up the ADICUP3029 to your computer or laptop, all the necessary drivers are automatically located and loaded up when using Windows operating systems.
There are two sets of drivers that get installed on your computer depending on which mode of operation the ADICUP3029 emulator comes up.
It EXTREMELY important to ensure that all drivers are installed, before trying to use the ADICUP3029 with the CrossCore Embedded Tools. So when you see that the drivers are being installed in the task bar, open it up and wait till everything finished before progressing.
When the ADICUP3029 emulator is connected to the ADuCM3029 and ready for program/debug mode, the “DAPLINK” drive is displayed on your computer.
This mode allows users to drag and drop (or copy and paste) a .BIN or .HEX [Intel formatted] file directly into the DAPLINK drive, and that file will be flashed directly to the ADuCM3029. This means you don't have to use the tools or the debugger to program your board, making this very useful in production releases or updating applications already in the field.
When the ADICUP3029 emulator is connected to the MK20DX128VFM5 (by holding down the “3029_RESET” button while connecting the USB port (P10) to the PC/laptop) the “Maintenance” drive is displayed on your computer. This mode allows a user to overwrite the ADuCM0329 interface file within the emulator. This allows for patches and updates to the firmware on the emulator.
