Searching on DFU - it be "Device Firmware Upgrade" or DFU protocol for

A lot of micro controllers chips with USB implement it - the only thing
is that it seems to be called different thing between different
manufactures. Shame. I could have done with this feature a long time ago

Many companies have DFU software to add to a CPU with USB - like
Microchip, but apparently when one guy did a mod and released it, he got
a full cease and desist order served on him - so DFU as software utility
is something to be weary of if not built into the chip.

Eclipse here is just a graphical user interface wrapped around gcc which
does all the grunt work.
