About Connection to the Target System
Seeing the following pin assignment table, etc., lay out/mount the Communication Connector (FTSH series 20pin connector made by Samtec, Inc.) on to the target system where the FLASH Writer(BM1401W0A-G) is to be connected.
The communication cable connector is not included in the product. The customer is kindly requested to prepare it.

(Notes) For the MCU pin numbers, signal names and connection method, be sure to see a data sheet for the target MCU.
(Notes) Minimize on-board wiring between the Communication Connector and MCU. (Shortest wiring recommended)
(Notes) If a control circuit or other parts have been connected to the signals (TxD, RxD, RESET) on the target system, which are to be connected to FLASH Writer, disconnect them with jumpers because they may affect operation of FLASH Writer.
Connect Pins 15 and 19 to the TxD and RxD pins of the microcomputer, respectively.
(Notes) For "MODE" signal of Pin 3, connect the MODE pin of this product to the TEST6 pin of the TMP77FM70, when writing to the TLCS-770 series (TMP77FM70).
(Notes) Configure a circuit so that a device's power pin (VDD) will rise to the VDD level faster than the other control pins.

Note for Layout of Communication Cable Connector


Note for Layout of Communication Cable Connector
The following figure shows the cable pull-out direction and connector pin position, when the FLASH Writer is connected. To design the board, take into account interference with other parts at the time of connecting the communication cable. For a connector size, please visit Samtec, Inc. website.


About the Operating Voltage/Clock Frequency

  • To write with the power supply on the target system, it is necessary to provide a supply voltage for the target system within a FLASH Memory write/erase operation assurance range. An out-of-range supply voltage cannot assure operation. For the FLASH Memory write/erase operation assurance range, see the data sheet for the microcomputer.
  • Available baud rates are generated by the microcomputer's reference clock. Some of them are not available depending on the clock frequency. For the clock frequency and available baud rates, see the data sheet for the microcomputer.


Precautions for USB Connection

  • Connect FLASH Writer to the host system with USB. (USB2.0, full-speed)
  • To newly connect FLASH Writer to the host system, it is necessary to install a USB driver.
