MAXQ20-Based Microcontroller Bootloader Command Reference

By: Kevin Self

Abstract: The MAXQ20 microcontroller core that is used in many of Maxim Integrated’s products employs a firmware bootloader. The bootloader command set is common across most MAXQ20-core devices, with additional commands supporting unique features. By taking advantage of this commonality, the developer of a host-side programming interface can reuse existing software when adding programming support for new devices. This document describes the command set used by the MAXQ20-core microcontrollers.
