    Hello Friends,

    I am searching for the the MCU (Microcontrollers) series which can be programmed serially and by using Simple Flash Magic Software.


    I know there are some series from NXP and ATMEL can be programmed via Serial Port.

    More information are most welcome.

    If you're willing to burn a bootloader into it first, there are various PIC processors that can be programmed over a serial link. PIC16F887 is a good example.

    You can get a bootloader free off the Internet, but you need to have the ability to load it onto the chip.

    Okey, It means in some MCU we have to first load the bootloader and after that we can program them Serially Right?

    Any MCU with ISP can do he work, as you figure out that first you need to load the bootloader
