Functions

The Flash Development Toolkit has three user-friendly GUIs which are available to choose the one depending on the purpose of use.

With generating project

Main window
Thanks to its project management function, this window permits data management for a system comprised of multiple microcomputers and data management in each development phase to be exercised efficiently. Furthermore, its data editing function permits you to edit parameters easily. This window provides you the convenient environment during a development stage.
Simple interface window
You can use this window by calling it from the main window after creating a project. By using the project management function, you can write data for multiple projects to your MCU easily. This window provides you the convenient environment when it is used during a mass-production stage or when there are multiple data and devices to manage.

Without generating project

Basic window
You can use this window by starting it directly. This window permits you to write data to your MCU easily without having to create a project. This window provides you the convenient environment when used during a mass-production stage or when there are one data and device to manage.

Note that this window is available from Ver.3.
