NUVOTON NUMICRO ISP PROGRAMMER USERGUIDE

1 INTRODUCTION
ISP is the acronym of In-System Programming, which makes it possible that the user can update the
MCU’ s program memory under the software control without removing the mounted MCU chip from the
actual end product. The MCU’ s LDROM is pre-programmed with Nuvoton standard ISP code and
CONFIG bits are properly configured.

2 FEATURES

• Please reference datasheet form http://www.nuvoton.com

2.2 UART setting


• Baud rate: 115200 bps
• Data: 8 bits
• Parity check: None
• Stop bit: 1 bit

2.3 Supports connected com ports automatic


• Step1: Nuvoton 8051 writer board has connected PC and power on it.
• Step2: Start to run Nuvoton NuMicro ISP Programmer AP.

2.4 Limitation
