Many embedded developers today use a ROM- or flash-resident software program that provides functionality such as loading and running application software, scripting, read/write access to processor registers, and memory dumps. A ROM monitor, as it is often called, can be a useful and far less expensive debugging tool than an in-circuit emulator.

This article describes the RedBoot ROM monitor. We'll take a look at the features offered by the RedBoot ROM monitor and see how it can be configured. We'll also walk through the steps of rebuilding and installing a new RedBoot image on a target platform. Finally, we'll look at future enhancements that are coming in new releases and how to get support and additional information when using RedBoot.
