If you need to have your non-technical end users perform field upgrades of your product's PIC firmware, you need a solution that is:
- Simple for them to set up and use
- Doesn't present them with confusing jargon or complicated options
- Automates the process, to keep them out of trouble
All SUMS bootloaders have two modes: Developer Mode, for your use at the company, and End User Mode, to make it simple and foolproof for your non-technical customers to upgrade your product in the field.
End User Mode is simple for you to set up by editing an INI file in a text editor. When your end user runs the PC program you send him, he is presented with a very simple, automated user interface.
End User mode presents a very simple menu - no confusion!
