D2000 topdown.jpg

The D2000 target is a bit of an oddball. It's an x86 target, but is really a microcontroller (internal flash etc).


An external programmer is needed for this target. The Quark D2000 dev-board can be used with jumper wires, or a standard OpenOCD programmer can be used. The suggested programmer is the Olimex ARM-USB-OCD-H as is available from suppliers such as Mouser and Digi-Key (mouser link provided).

How to flash D2000 board using OpenOCD

We'll modify the provided scripts from the Intel ISSM distribution (compiler etc for D2000). Start a Windows command prompt and run the following commands:

bin\openocd.exe -f scripts\interface\ftdi\olimex-arm-usb-ocd-h.cfg -f scripts\board\quark_d2000.cfg

Note we specify two script files - the first had the JTAG connection (the olimex-arm-usb-ocd-h.cfg), the second had the D2000. This should result in an output like the following:

At this point it will hold, waiting for new commands. Open a second command prompt, and run:


From within this GDB console, you can run the following:

target remote :3333
monitor clk32M 500
monitor load_image C:\\chipwhisperer\\hardware\\victims\\firmware\\intel_quark\\quark_d2000_rom.bin 0x0
monitor load_image C:\\chipwhisperer\\hardware\\victims\\firmware\\intel_quark\\simpleserial_example\\release\\quark_d2000\\x86\\bin\\simpleserial_aes.bin 0x00180000

The first load_image is used for the ROM image. This may not be needed as has normally been done already. However you'll have to reload the application any time you wish to reprogram it.
