I have developed a USB<->CAN-Bus "DOngle" which works good for now.

One is for my lab, 3 or 4 more are working somewhere else.

 

for these, I would like to provide an easy way for firmware updates. At the moment, I use the free bootloader from the website www.chip45.com.

 

This works. The only problem is that there is no command-line-tool. It is only a GUI program  I have to manually reset the dongle by shortening some wired and start the connection process to the boot-loader fast enough to match the time-out.

 

This is difficult and takes normally several tries until it works.

 

Otherwise my PC-Software for the dongle can reset the dongle by program. I simply need a commandline-tool which can be started from the control software

 

I did not google around that much. Perhaps someone has a good idea

 

BTW: The dongle uses a AT90CAN128 with USART1

I program like a man:
COPY CON: > firmware.hex

I see that there's a command-line tool for linux that could probably be compiled for windows...

 

Other than that, you haven't said what features you're looking for, so it'll be difficult to recommend one.

Optiboot is used with all the arduino's I believe and is usable with avrdude from the command line on several different platforms.
