1 Replies and 3074 Views LoLo and Updating the CPLD  3074  1 Started by  Deleted User Q: I'm wondering about the 'update' command in LoLo. 1. What is it capable of updating 2. Can the xc2c64a FPGA on the board be updated with it We have a .upd file, and when I point the update command at it it looks like is running an Altera FPGA programming utility. 3. What is in the .upd file, and how is one created A: 1. The update file is used to update the CPLD 2. Yes 3. I will have to look into whether we have any publicly available instructions on creating the CPLD.

0 Replies and 2367 Views Compact Flash usage in user application on M5485EVB  2367  0 Started by  Deleted User We need to use Compact Flash in our application code. We have mapped CPLD to 0x50000000, with compact flash starting at 0x5A000000. Beginning at this address, I can read the CIS info properly by means of a simple routine. However, when sending the Identify Drive command (0xEC), I receive invalid data through data register. Also, DRQ bit in status register, which signals that data is available for reading, never gets set. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks Chris Xenophontos

0 Replies and 2002 Views MCF5475 Fire Engine PCI_IDSEL  2002  0 Started by  traceeworel For a breadboard we are designing, we are using 2 Fire Engine modules mounted on a host board. The final design will be using the PCI bus for communication between Coldfire processors. I would like to connect both Fire Engine MCF5475s to the same PCI bus on the host board, but it appears to me that because the PCI_IDSEL is wired to PCI_AD16 on the Fire Engine MCF5475, I can't have both MCF5475s on the same PCI bus. Does anyone have a way around this, or any suggestions
