Hi
I don't think using just serial port.
I know you can program it by using parallel port.
search the eda board you can find many info.

Hi

To do so you will need a Bootstarp loader, or a rom monitor program running

All the best

Re: loading hex file

Hi,

If you use a mcu with ISP feature (In System Program), you can download a hex file via serial port. You can do that with the software that the Manufacter have for you to download (free), for example:

if you use a mcu from ATMEL, you can download "flip" programmer, from ATMEL's site;

if you use a mcu from PHILIPS, you can download "Flash Magic" programmer from "h**p://www.esacademy.com/software/flashmagic/";

this 2, i had worked whith and are very easy to work whith.

regards.
