This section details what boot configurations are available and how to configure them. This device supports from 0 boot mode select pins up to 3 boot mode select pins as well as from 1 configured boot mode up to 8 configured boot modes.
To change and configure the device from the default settings to custom settings for your application, use the following process:
- Determine all the various ways you want application to be able to boot. (For example: Primary boot option of Flash boot for your main application, secondary boot option of CAN boot for firmware updates, tertiary boot option of SCI boot for debugging, etc)
- Based on the number of boot modes needed, determine how many boot mode select pins (BMSPs) are required to select between your selected boot modes. (For example: 2 BMSPs are required to select between 3 boot mode options)
- Assign the required BMSPs to a physical GPIO pin. (For example, BMSP0 to GPIO10, BMSP1 to GPIO51, and BMSP2 left as default which is disabled). Refer to Section 188.8.131.52 for all the details on performing these configurations.
- Assign the determined boot mode definitions to indexes in your custom boot table that correlate to the decoded value of the BMSPs. For example, BOOTDEF0=Boot to Flash, BOOTDEF1=CAN Boot, BOOTDEF2=SCI Boot; all other BOOTDEFx are left as default/nothing). Refer to Section 184.108.40.206 for all the details on setting up and configuring the custom boot mode table.
Additionally, the Boot Mode Example Use Cases
section of the TMS320F28002x Real-Time Microcontrollers Technical Reference
Manual provides some example use cases on how to configure the
BMSPs and custom boot tables.
Note: The CAN boot mode turns on the XTAL. Be sure an XTAL is installed in the
application before using CAN boot mode.
