The program page shows the results of the generated program in the Generated Program tab, as shown on the left side of Figure 8-30. This is a text format file and a scroll bar is available to view the entire content. On the right side are the control mechanisms for programming.
The Select Device drop-down menu is provided when multiple PMICs have been configured. The associated program appears in the Generated Program tab when a device is selected. This will also determine which program will be saved and programmed.
The Select current interface will determine which physical address is used to verify the connection and program.
Two options are provided for saving the program, Save as Assembly Code and Save as Binary Code. The Save as Assembly Code is the same format as what is shown in the Generate Program tab. The Save as Binary Code format is of the register addresses and the hexadecimal values at those addresses. Both of these formats can be uploaded to the program page and programmed into the selected device without the use of the configuration steps, as discussed in Section 8.2.1. The binary format can also be used in the NVM Validation page to validate the NVM contents of a device. Once the physical connection is verified, then the device can be programmed.
