I'm currently trying to load mecrisp forth on a spare tiva c series launchpad (TM4C123) board I have at home and am not having much success. I'm an electrical engineering student and while I've programmed boards using IDE's such as crossworks before I've never done so from scratch. I have the board hooked up via USB, and have attempted programming the board using TI's LM Flash programmer but haven't had much luck. I guess I'm hoping for a general understanding of the programming process and any gotchas people are aware of that might cause issues. As I understand it I do the following.
- Download mecrisp stellaris
- Program my board using USB and a TI utility
- Connect to the Forth interpreter via TeraTerm
Any help would be much appreciated!
EDIT: In particular I appear unable to program FORTH onto the microcontroller and establish a connection via serial terminal to the programmed device. I am unsure if it is due to an error in programming the device or a serial connection problem. My question was broadly posed in an attempt to cover any basic errors I might be making. Ideally a simple getting started tutorial would be available but after reading through the mecrisp documentation and extensive googling I am unable to find an example for my specific board.
