We are creating a commercial product and have a custom manufactured Panda board. I am trying to access the bootloader using Teraterm. I have no USB connection (no bing bong when connecting :)) and so am connecting via COM1 with a jumper on the MODE and GROUND pins. I then put it into boot loader mode, and send a ‘b’. I get a ‘j’ back rather than the expected ‘BL’. I have the baud setting as 115200 and 8, none, 1. Sending a ‘V’ gets back a ‘^’ rather than the version number. So effectively I am getting back what I send + 8 off this board. When I plug in a bought in FEZ Panda using the same technique I get back what I expect - a ‘b’ I get back ‘BL’.
The chip is an NXP LPC2387. Should the GHI boot loader be on there already or am I assuming too much. Do I have a blank chip?
If this is the case is it even possible to put the GHI boot loader/firmware onto this chip?
