Description:
Among the many features built into Microchip's Enhanced FLASH Microcontroller devices is the capability of the program memory to self-program. This very useful feature has been deliberately included to give the user the ability to perform bootloading operations. Devices like the PIC18F452 are designed with a designated 'boot block', a small section of protectable program memory allocated specifically for bootload firmware.
Keywords:
FLASH, Microcontroller, Devices, bootloader implementation, PIC16F87XA and PIC18F families of microcontrollers.
