Is it possible to protect the program from the download in ADuCM36x?this in the documentation (AN1160) does not say.
The build-in downloader cannot directly remove the protection that is put in place by your program.
What it can do is completely erase the user flash which removes your user code and resets the protection to its default state.
What kind of protection are you looking for?
You can write and read protect your part in your code and then your code can't be read or overwritten. See the flash section in the User guide.
This has to be done by your code as the downloader specified by AN1160 does not have that ability.
If I understand correctly - protection programs produced from the code.via built-in downloader can only erase the protected code?
