In this section, we briefly walk through the process of Programming The Things Gateway using the MPLAB IPE integrated programming environment
Connect the programmer to the
MCU_PROG port of the gateway as shown below
Once connected, open the MPLAB IPE on your computer and select the device
connect button next to the Tool to allow the IPE to connect to the Programmer. This allows the IPE to read existing firmware information.
Now load the hex file from your PC. The IPE checks it for validity.
Load Hex File
In case you encounter a warning
hexfile contains code that is located at addresses that do not exist on the device, you should still be able to continue with programming.
Program to start the reprogramming of the gateway.
Once the program is complete, the checksums are verified.
