    Hello,

    Try to find some informations about this product Breakout Board VS1000D, but it’s very difficult.

    Seems Sparkfun have never provide some clear informations about this product.

    You can find some when googling, but it’s very, very poor…

    on this page, there is 4 links for informations, 2 of them rely to the manufacturer website. The 2 others are schematics.

    On Sparkfun’s forum there is only 2 posts related to this product : post 1 post 2

    In last one you can read

    See http://www.vlsi.fi -> support -> software -> vs1000d examples[/quote] !

    The only clear information come from…Watterott !

    3 years ago Stephan Watterott have posted a link to a dedicated software to update the firmware. here And it’s simple.

    I assume that I am a really beginner in electronic and microcontrollers, but :

    • Is it normal that I can’t find what’s D0, D1, D2, D3, D4 means ? (I have some ideas)
    • On the posts on this page they talk about jumper 1, but it’s not clear. What is the function of this jumper ?
    • 90% of posts talk about UART control, what about SPI?
    • Is it possible to have some SPI examples ?
    • Can’t we have access to the original firmware ?
    • It seems that you have a special trick to do if you want to update the firmware several times. (But I can’t find out where I’ve read it)

    Hey Skye, You’re right, the posted programmer’s guide and the datasheet are both specific to the VS1000D chip itself. The VS1000 and the flash IC make up like 99% of the features of the board, so that documentation should have most of the information you’ll need. For simple use make sure you check out section 7.4 of the datasheet.

    OK, but you made a board for this chip, can’t you provide informations for people who have bought the board ?

    Anyone from Sparkfun ?
