This Zilog Standalone Programmer (ZSP) Configuration Software installation v2.4.0 supports S3
and Z8Encore! MCU families and the part number ZUSBZSP0100ZACG. The following new features are
Added new Programming view to program, erase, or verify target devices
from within the ZSP Configuration Software. This feature requires ZSP
Firmware version 2.4.0 (or later).
Removed the decimal format option in the serialization page.
Serial Numbers are now only displayed as hexadecimal strings.
Modified support for F3224 devices to work around an erratum regarding
the RESDCO specification being exceeded at certain DCO control codes as
described UP0142 available on www.zilog.com.
Modified the Firmware Upgrade process to make it more resistant to power
failures. The ZSP USB cable should never be disconnected while a firmware
upgrade is in progress since this can leave the ZSP in an unusable state.
In some instances, it might be possible to recover the ZSP Firmware should
an unexpected power failure occur. For more information refer to the ZSP
Firmware Upgrade document (ZSP_FW_Upgrade_Information.pdf) located in the
Addressed the following Firmware CRs:
After successfully programming a target with serialization enabled, both
the serial number and application image are read back to ensure they
were both programmed correctly. If not, a verification error (-9) is
displayed on the LCD. Previously, only the target application was read
back after programming and the serial number was not verified.
ZSP FW detects an invalid checksum error (ZSP_ERR_CHECKSUM = -12)
when Encore or S3 target programmed with serialization enabled if
the serial number and Hex file address range overlap. No error
occurs if serialization is disabled or the serial number start
address is higher than the last byte in the application image
S3 target Flash at 0x5CAE is programmed with in invalid value
when serialization is enabled and the serial number is programmed
at an address that's not a multiple of 0x100
