I recently designed a battery operated field data logging system using the ds30 Loader.
One of the requirements for the logging system was for the system to be easily upgradeable in field.
I thought about writing my own bootloader, but based on having very little time to get a prototype
up and running I decided that I did not have the time to write and debug my own bootloader.
I did a market survey to find if there were any commercial bootloaders available.
I found and tested a few bootloaders including the ds30loader. I was very impressed with the code
size, ease of use, reliability, speed, great features, simple to use GUI, no linker file modifications
needed and most importantly the great and responsive support I received from the developer.
I will continue to use the ds30 Loader in future products requiring a bootloader.
