have recently received the BlackIce MX but am having trouble trying to upload a test design (chip.bin from the blink example).
Am using TeraTerm to do this and following the steps at https://github.com/folknology/IceCore/wiki/IceCore-Getting-Started, only a fraction of the file gets transferred, the Bytes/sec value keeps decrementing until no further progress is made.
Am a bit confused by the step which says 'Delete the Baud rate option', since removing the content from this edit box just has the result of setting it to what ever it was set last (or to 9600 if the value is removed from the .ini file). Have tried several different Baud rate options, all the changes is how fast the initial transmission goes but they all eventually crawl to a halt.
These are the relevant sections from the ini file, from what I can tell they match what the steps recommend (modulo the Baud rate option as per above):
; Terminal size
; Terminal size=window size (on/off)
; Auto window resizing option (on/off)
; Convert a received new-line (CR) char to CR/CRLF/LF/AUTO
; New-line code to be transmitted (CR/CRLF/LF)
; Terminal ID
; Local echo (on/off)
; Auto window switching (VT<->TEK; on/off)
; Serial port parameters
; Port number
; Baud rate
; Parity (even/odd/none/mark/space)
; Data (7/8)
; Stop (1/1.5/2)
; Flow control (x/hard/none)
; Transmit delay per character (in msec)
; Transmit delay per line (in msec)
Upon first connecting (or re-connecting) the device to the computer, the green led next to the cable is on, as well as the blue led in the next corner.
When the file is transferring the red led is on next to the where the micro usb cable is connected, as well as the blue led in the next corner.
Will try next on Mac or Linux but it would be great if this could work in Windows too. FWIW, have used TeraTerm successfully in the past to upload designs to an upduino 2.0 (another ice board).
