Flashing

UF2

The Feather M4 CAN comes with the UF2 bootloader already installed.

CLI Flashing

  • Plug your Feather M4 CAN into your computer’s USB port.

  • Flash your TinyGo program to the board using this command:

    tinygo flash -target=feather-m4-can [PATH TO YOUR PROGRAM]
    
  • The Feather M4 CAN board should restart and then begin running your program.

Troubleshooting

If you have troubles getting your Feather M4 CAN board to receive code, try this:

  • Press the “RESET” button on the board two times to get the Feather M4 CAN board ready to receive code.
  • The Feather M4 CAN board will appear to your computer like a USB drive.
  • Now try running the command as above:
tinygo flash -target=feather-m4-can [PATH TO YOUR PROGRAM]

Once you have updated your Feather M4 CAN board the first time, after that you should be able to flash it entirely from the command line.

Notes

You can use the USB port to the Feather M4 CAN as a serial port. UART0 refers to this connection.
