Downloading an image to your target

Many boards have a ROM monitor, a simple program that runs when you first power on the board. The ROM monitor lets you communicate with your board via a command-line interface (over a serial or Ethernet link), download images to the board's system memory, burn images into flash, etc.

The QNX System Builder has a Terminal view that you can use to communicate with your target board's ROM monitor. You can download images to the board using this view or the TFTP server, which is also part of the QNX System Builder.

Note: If your board doesn't have a ROM monitor, you can't use the download services in the IDE; you have to get the image onto the board in some other way (e.g., JTAG). To learn how to connect to your particular target, consult your hardware and BSP documentation.
