use to labview to program NXP chips using a lpcxpresso board.

[ Edited ]

Hello

 

Are there any possibilitys to program an NXP chip using labview?

We have got our program working and we can program it using a lpcxpresso board.

We want to use labview to automate this process so we can use this in a machine that can program and calibrate the complete PCB.

 

Anyone has got any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advantage!

You have to make your own target for LabVIEW to use.

the difficulty depends on if you have a Tier 1 device (LM3S8962, LPC2378, LPC2468)

It also easier if you have a look-a-like micro of a Tier 1 device.

I've got a LPC 1313 which we want to use on an PCB for mass production.

I found a way to flash it using a command line tool, but don't know how to get some kind of output from that command line tool in to labview to check if everything is finished.

Why you want that feedback into LabVIEW?

you can develop your code in LabVIEW, build it using KEIL uVision so that you get an HEX file or binary.

with the command line tool you'll be flashing the application.

Because we want to mass produce, when the programm is not flashed properly labview should get feedback what went wrong.

Re: use to labview to program NXP chips using a lpcxpresso board.

You wan't to use a LabVIEW desktop application that calls the command to flash a binary/hex to all the micro's?

 

with LabVIEW for ARM you build an application and then you can run it on a microcontroller.

it has no mass produce option or so.

 

if you want to make a target for the ARM you have, you use LabVIEW for ARM to build the application (binary/hex)

 

if you then want to mass produce it, make a LabVIEW desktop app that calls your command and flash the binary/hex you've made with LV for ARM.

 

just to make clear what you want:

Do you want to make a application that works on your lpcxpresso board?

or

Do you have that already?

Re: use to labview to program NXP chips using a lpcxpresso board.

I have got a working programm already, I want to make a desktop application that programms the micro's.

 

I can flash this into the NXP chip using the command line flash tool.

And now I want to find a way to get feedback. Or programm out of labview without the command line tool, if there are any possibilty's. I'm open for every option.
