TinyFPGA Software does not work on BX board with latest Bootloader


#1

When I received my 2 Bx boards in the mail, I hooked them up and launched the TinyFPGA Programmer app (ver 1.1.5) and the app was able to see both of the boards, After updating the bootloader on both boards to the latest version, it no longer sees the COM port even though Windows device manager sees the COM port. just fine. I can upload files to the boards using Atom though. Is this a known issue? I would like to use this app if possible.

Yeah, this is a known issue. The GUI needs to be updated for the BX boards. In the meantime, APIO and tinyprog command line utilities are the recommended methods for programming the BX.

Ok. Thanks for verifying. I just wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing something.
