NAMEastribank_tool - Xorcom Astribank (xpp) firmware loader
SYNOPSISastribank_tool -D device-path <-F|-p> [options] hexfile astribank_tool [-h]
DESCRIPTIONastribank_hexload is a second-stage firmware loader for Xorcom Astribanks. Note that some older models use fpga_load(8) instead. It is used to load a file in the Intel HEX format into a Xorcom Astribank. It can be used to load either an FPGA firmware or a PIC firmware. It is normally run by the script xpp_fxloader.
OPTIONS-D device-path Required. The device to read from/write to. On modern UDEV-based system this is usually /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num, where bus_num and device_num are the first two numbers in the output of lsusb(8). On older systems that use usbfs, it is usually /proc/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num. -F The firmware to load is a FPGA firmware. -p The firmware to load is a PIC firmware. -v Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times. -d mask Set debug mask to mask. Default is 0, 0xFF is "everything". -h Displays usage message.
