This document describes how to perform firmware downloading on MXCHIP module via serial port. When downloading firmware for the module, please follow the steps below, otherwise an unknown error will occur.
The file that has a bin extension is what we need.
Connect the MXCHIP module to a USB-to-TTL converter according to the following schematic. Note that pin PB1 needs to be set to LOW as an input. Here it is connected to ground directly. KEY1 is used for the external reset function.
After connecting the above USB-to-TTL converter to the PC, you can see the corresponding COM port through the “My Computer” -> “Administration” -> “Device Manager” -> “Port (COM and LPT)”.
