Possible to detect which microchip?

  • Hi there,

    Currently I am using a USB Multilink to program onto a certain chip. We got some other boards in with a different chip.

    I want to use the same fixture we have and programatically decide which code to program to the chip. Is there any way to detect which chip I am using so that I know what to program onto it?



  • Greetings,

    Which chip architecture are you working with? Some architectures make this easier to know, some do not.

  • One is NXP KL26
    The other is Atmel SAMD21G18

  • Greetings,

    Unfortunately it is not easy to determine the chip in ARM devices. Each silicon vendor has their own way of entering debug mode and without predetermined knowledge of the device it would be difficult to know how to enter debug mode.
