When connecting up the ADICUP360 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 USB port you have plugged into your laptop or PC.
It EXTREMELY important to ensure that all drivers are installed, before trying to use the ADICUP360 with CrossCore Embedded Studios. 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 ADICUP360 is connected to your computer via the DEBUG USB port (P14), the “MBED” drive is displayed on your computer as a mass storage device.
This mode allows users to drag and drop or copy and paste a .BIN file directly into the MBED drive, and that file will program the ADuCM360 on the ADICUP360. 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 ADICUP360 is connected to your computer via the DEBUG USB port (P14), AND you hold down the “RESET” button (S5), the “BOOTLOADER” drive is displayed on your computer as a mass storage device. This mode allows a user to overwrite the ADICUP360 interface file. This allows for patches and updates to the firmware to the on board emulator/debugger.
The current ADICUP360 interface file can be downloaded here:
When the ADICUP360 is connected to your computer via the USER USB port (P13), the UART port of the ADuCM360 is able on your computer a virtual Serial COM Port.
This allows users to communicate with the ADICUP360 via the UART port through serial terminal programs such as Putty or Tera Term (there are many other applications as well) This will allow you to output data to a PC or even send UART commands to the ADICUP360.
