Is it possible to transfer files through serial ?

Hello, 

 

We need some way to transfer files through serial in order to program flash. 

Is it possible to do that in ucos ? 

 

Best Regards, 

Ran

Define what you mean by 'serial'? Ethernet is inherently serial, so is USB. 'Serial' from what source to what destination, over what kind of link. 

 

Remember when you ask a question you need to provide as much detail up front if you expect some kind of helpful answer.

Hi, 

 

I intend to use ucos, without ethernet. 

So it seems that in order to flash program new images, we will need to use the UART interface. 

Serial file transfer can be done with kermit,xmodem,ymodem, but the question is if ucos support this kind of file transfer. 

 

Thanks, 

Ranchu

I don't think it supports it straight out of the box, but if you can find some C code for a kermit/*modem receiver you should be able to port it to ucos. 

But it's a lot easier to do through jtag, using the tools altera provides.
