Thread: Chips and USB2SER - how to program w/o IDE?

    Default Chips and USB2SER - how to program w/o IDE?

    Sorry, someone had asked this earlier and I can;t seem to place that thread.

    Now that Parallax have released the chip and usb2ser, how does one program the chip in spin w/o the IDE. What is the workaround in the interim.

    thanks in advance

    The IDE will be available for download (FREE!! of course from Parallax) by the time the 1st Propellers ship.

    In short?

    You can't.

    The IDE not only compiles the Spin source into the tokens needed for the interpreter, but it also does the downloading of the 'object code'.
    Unless you know EXACTLY how Spin is translated, with necessary header-blocks, and either have a way of transferring the resulting code to an EEPROM, or have the secifications for the serial protocol, there's no way to do it by yourself.

    That's how I understand it, at least.

    As you won't be getting hold of any Propeller chips before the IDE is available, I can't see the problem anyhow...

    ALIBE:

    When we start shipping DIP Propeller chips, the IDE will be available for download. Worry not - we're thinking through the details to support some early adopters.
