For the Colibri Txx see: Production Programming for Tegra Modules
There are different ways to program / configure your Colibri modules in production.
See also Copy Flash Region
(Please note that these instructions do not include the CPLD firmware which is present on the Colibri PXA3xx modules.)
If you need more control over the programming, you can write your own program and use the Update Tool to do the actual programming. The Update Tool has also some other useful command parameters. If you wish to further customize the programming, we can provide an UpdateLib. With this Lib, you can build your own Update Tool. This is, for example, useful if you would like to show your own progress bar.
In case you do not wish to program the complete flash, just make a backup file of each region you would like to program. Available regions include:
The modules are normally shipped with the newest version of the Image/Bootloader/CPLD firmware. We change the SW version of the preinstalled Win CE image/bootloader/CPLD firmware without any notification. If you receive a new batch of Colibris, make sure you check the version of the installed SW. If the version is different check the change log file on our server. We recommend that you should always use the newest version. Make sure that your own SW/HW still works fine with the newest Toradex SW. (This is normally the case).
However, it is not possible for all customers to always use the latest Toradex SW. In this case you can override all the Colibri SW with your tested version of the SW. If the HW version of the Colibri has changed, you need to verify if the "old" SW is still 100% compatible. If you are not sure, you can contact the support.
If a power loss occurs while programming data, the flash could get corrupted. As long as the Bootloader is not damaged, you can always use it to restore the module. If the bootloader is damaged, you need JTAG to restore the module. To eliminate the risk of damaging the Bootloader while programming, we can provide a fail safe Bootloader. For more information about the fail safe Bootloader option, contact the support.
