JTAG Options for Debug/Programming:

Parallel Port JTAG (tested on Keil uvision4.53 IDERowley Crossworks)

CoiNel ARM USB JTAG (tested on Rowley CrossWorks)

CoiNel CoLinkEx (tested on Keil)

The Board can also be used with other compatible JTAG Debuggers.

The details on how to use the JTAG and its associated plugins are provided with the documents and also can be downloaded from Download section.

ISP Programming:

Programming can be done through the on chip boot loader using UART interface (UART0). You will have to use a TTL to RS232 Converter to do so since the pinout are TTL logic and PC uses RS232 logic. The tool used for programming is Flash Magic.

Programming Using CoFlash

The controller can be Programmed using CoFlash from CooCox. The binary file needs to loaded using this tool. You can download the tool in the download section.

To use CoFlash, you would need CoiNel ARM USB JTAG or CoiNel CoLinkEx.

USB Boot Loader

The Board can also be programmed via USB Secondary Bootloader. Check LPC1788 USB Boot Loader document for more details.


Our products can be used with majority of IDE that support Cortex M3 Family. A few IDE and plugin details are given below.

  • Keil uvision4.53 IDE (32K code limited version can be used. Use 4.53 and above)
  • Rowley Crossworks (30 day evaluation version can be used.)
  • IAR workbench (32K code limited version could be used.)
  • CooCox CoIDE (Unlimited, Open Source)


H-JTAGCooCox ColinkFlash Magic have been tested.

Compatible debuggers like U-Link, J-Link etc can also be used.

Precautions on use

  1. Be sure to read the catalogue and instruction manual before using this product. Incorrect usage could lead to an electric shock, damage to the product or a fire hazard.
  2. Use this product within the specified input voltage, output power, output voltage, output current, and range of ambient temperature/ambient humidity. Using this product in conditions beyond the specification limits can shorten the lifetime of the product, or can cause, damage to the product.
  3. intrusion of foreign matter (On print head) can cause abnormal wear and reduce service life.
  4. Clean the print head regularly with a clean cloth. Use IP if necessary. Put some IP on the cloth and gently clean the print head.
  5. Use Good Quality Thermal Paper. While cutting the paper, the small particles tend to gather on the print head and can reduce print head life.
  6. Do not use the product at temperature of 50℃ or higher. Exposure to higher temperatures may cause malfunction, parts to deform/be damaged.
  7. Donot use the product if it is used in an environment where cutting chips, corrosive solvents, water, etc., may enter the product.
  8. Do not use undue force when removing cover for paper insertion. This can damage the plastic part.
  9. Malfunction and failure may be caused if this product is used in environments with conductive substances or dust.
  10. Be sure to take protective measures against the surge voltage caused by lightning, etc. Damage to the unit may be caused due to irregular voltage.
  11. Please contact CoiNel or its authorized service centers if any malfunction occurs; do not open the product yourself.

Precautions on Handling

  1. Donot modify, disassemble, or open this product. This will result in loss of functionality.
  2. Take care not to drop or strike the product. Doing so may cause injury or damage. Giving an impact to it could also cause damage to its function even if the product looks intact.
