Generally speaking, a bootloader is an application that remains resident in a microprocessor and accepts a compilers output file as an ASCII stream, parses it, and updates the program space accordingly. Any microcontroller is a candidate for utilizing a bootloader if it has both a serial communications interface (SCI/UART) and self-programming program space (FLASH/EEPROM). Bootloaders provide firmware developers with an easy and quick method of replacing the firmware in a microcontroller without the use of a device programmer. In fact, the microcontroller will not even be removed from the prototype circuit, which typically saves a significant amount of time and reduces the opportunity for electrostatic discharge.
