Important Information for users of NXP LPCXpresso

This site is for users of Code Red branded products.

NXP LPCXpresso users should visit the LPCXpresso FAQ's for up-to-date information relevant to that product.

Using the GUI flash programming tool

The flash programming utility which is used when you launch a debug session can also be accessed at other times within the Code Red IDE environment by clicking on the "Program Flash" icon on the toolbar at the top of the IDE window....


[ Note that the exact location of the icon on the toolbar may depend upon which IDE variant you are using (LPCXpresso IDE / Red Suite) and also which perspective you have active. ]

Before clicking on the "Program Flash" icon, ensure that you have a project selected in the Project Explorer view which is configured for the target that you are going to program. This will ensure that appropriate configuration options for the flash programmer are picked up. In fact if you select a .bin or .axf file within a project, the flash programming tool will also pick up the filename too.

Within the flash programming tool, you can then choose to program an image into the flash...


or by selecting the other tab, choose to erase the flash....


Generally it is also a good idea to ensure that the "Display progress log" option is enabled before programming/erasing. This will cause details of the operation to be displayed once it completes.
