Chip45boot-free AVR bootloader

Topics:

Why this bootloader is different? This is based on standard Motorola s-record compatible file which can be easily generated from Intel HEX. Firmware can be transferred via standard UART of any AVR microcontroller. File can be transferred using any Hyper terminal program or your own program. Just note, that it is necessary to have a delay of 250ms after each line transmitted. This can be set with almost all Hyper terminal program.

Download process can be automatized by using command line tool, which can be called from Makefile or another application.
