Bootloader demo

  • Description of the demo software:

The bootloader allows you to upload binary code (*.hex) files to the PIC-WEB-BOX via Ethernet using tftp (e.g. you don't need a programmer or debugger to download software to the board). It is based on the Internet Bootloader application released by Microchip.

This demo is downloaded to all boards by default during manufacturing.

  • Version of tools used:

Microchip TCP/IP Stack 5.42 example from Microchip Library for Applications released on 2013/06/15

General purpose demo

  • Description of the demo software:

Demo project that implements web server with web page for Olimex PIC-WEB-BOX rev.C based on

  • Version of tools used:

Microchip TCP/IP Stack 5.42 example from Microchip library for Applications released on 2013/06/15.

It was programmed using OLIMEX PIC-KIT3 programmer/debugger and PIC-ICSP adapter, TFTP.exe v6.1.7600.16385 on Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit.

Project is built and tested with MPLAB 8.92 or MPLABX 1.95 and PIC18 C Compiler 3.44. It is highly recommended to use the exact same compiler.
