I am using the NGW100 board. I use standalone development.
I use the JTAG IC2 mk-II to program the flash.

Now, my code size is about 4Mbytes. A big chunk of of which is data.

It takes 15 minutes to write the code in the NGW100. This is a total waste of time, just to wait for 15 mins and test something that you changed or added.
Is there any way to reduce the time?

Thanks,

If you could program parts of the flash... Place the data in another part of the flash.

Life's to short for waiting on slow CPU's

Thanks!!
I will give it a shot. It's worth doing it, rather than waiting for 15 mins every time you change something.
So, is it normal that ~4MBytes size binary will take around 15 mins? Am I missing some configuration here?

I was kind of hoping that I had missed something. But too bad I have not.

Thanks for the help,

AFAIK the AVRONE! tool is way faster than JTAGICE, but it comes at a price. The fastest programmers I've seen are usually U-Boot and other standalone applications which can do self program.

I cannot buy an AVRONE :(, at least right now.

Someday may be, I will give it a shot at the bootloader.
I have already tried using u-boot with my application, but this does not work. U-boot initializes the hardware and then my app also tries to init the hardware. This causes problems. I did not go ahead and try to solve it.
