The LPC2387 on the FEZ Panda is preprogrammed with a bootloader from GHI electronics as it's intended to be used with the Microsoft.NET embedded (or something) framework. It also has the JTAG port disabled, so the first thing I have to do is to get rid of bootloader and clear the chip. Helpfully, GHI provide a special firmware that erases the whole chip and removes all memory protections. You can currently get the file "USBizi_ERASE.zip" in from a directory on GHIs servers.
Steps to erase the FEZ Panda
The steps here are actually described in GHI's document Beginner's Guide to porting .NETMF, but I I'll summarize the steps as executed on a Linux machine:
USBizi_ERASE.zipand unpack. You'll have to install the
cuterminal emulator and the
lrzszx/y/z-modem protocol. Then write a short script (see below) to send "X" and then the included
USBizi_ERASE.GHIvia xmodem-1k-crc16. Connect the first UART of the FEZ-Panda to a suitable 3.3v CMOS serial port (e.g. a ft232 usb to serial module). Connect the
MODEpin on the unpopulated pads on the short edge of the PCB opposing the USB/Power connector side to
GND. Press the reset-button marked
RSTwhile holding the
LDRbutton next to it.
In the serial terminal, you should see the
BLprompt of the bootloader, start the script to send "X" followed by the xmodem-upload, then wait for the included software to erase the board.

Now the USBizi is erased and the "usual" LPC bootloader takes over on the serial port, at 9600 bits per second:

JTAG now works:
