FW Update through IAP
The bootloader with IAP function can be downloaded into MCU, STM32F429VE using ST-LINK or JLINK through SWD Interface.
The application can be downloaded via bootloader with GUI.
|ST-LINK or JLINK
|EVBKS5 GUI via Bootloader
1. Program Memory Map
The MCU, STM32F429VET6 has 512KB of program memory, and the memory map for FW is as follows.
|Application partition and update information etc.
2. Example FW
Extract the zip file after downloading
3. Note for Application FW
Any one of the APP firmware, after compiling, will generate two image files that are defined to run at different flash address.
Take EVBKS5_BodySensing as an example.
When opening its project directory in the embedded compiling tool, users can find two projects that called APP0 and APP1.
These two projects are identical, the only difference between them is that they are supposed to run at different flash address.
When building the project, users MUST CHOOSE “Rebuild all target files “so that both APP projects can be compiled
and their bin files can be found under firmware’s Objects directory, as shown in Figure 6-1.
These two bin files are two image files that are used for updating EVBKS5 board.
