2 Replies and 1328 Views Coldfire P&E low-voltage parallel port BDM  1328  2 Started by Is anybody else having trouble getting the P&E parallel port BDM that came with the ColdFire M5475EVB kit to work I’m trying to get it to work with the copy of Metrowerks CodeWarrior that was included. The IDE seems to recognize that the BDM is there and it attempts to interact with the processor, but it is intermittent at best. In the hardware diagnostics I can sometimes write and then read a byte from memory, but trying to load programs or anything else ends with complete failure. I m...

2 Replies and 1361 Views Programming the boot flash on M5475CFE Rev B board  1361  2 Started by Last month I got M5475CFE replacement board, Rev B (replacing my old board, Rev 305). It came with dBUG v4a.1a.1d (Dec 6 2004 build) installed and seemed working fine. Recently I tried to reprogram the boot flash (for practice of my own dBUG, but tried Freescale's dBUG first), but it did not work. I used M54X5EVB updater. It seemed going through ok but, after rebooting, the dBUG v4a.1a.1d was still there. Since M54X5EVB updater does not have 'verify' capability, I then used Freescale's CF F...

9 Replies and 1322 Views LoLo at F8000000 or FFE00000?  1322  9 Started by Hello, Out of the box, my CF5475 eval board did not seem to have LoLo running on it--I set the baud rate to 115200 in dBug, executed go FF840000, and the board froze, with no response from the terminal program. So, I figure I need to flash LoLo--went to the d/l site and got the file. In it, I find the likely candidate 1000587_evb-dbug_lolo.srec. However, when I attempt to load the file (after typing the 'dl 0x800000' command in dbug as in the Application note 257), I g...

1 Replies and 1570 Views BCM5222 PHY connect failures  1570  1 Started by Blunk Microsystems has developed a TargetOS BSP for the M54XXEVB that includes an Ethernet driver for TargetTCP, our embedded TCP/IP stack. I have found that I am unable to connect to a 1000/100/10Mbps switch. The PHY never completes auto-negotiation. We have one customer who sometimes has trouble getting a physical connection on their network, depending on which device they plug into. Another customer is also unable to connect via a 1000/100/10Mbps switch. I have not seen any PHY connect pro...

6 Replies and 1259 Views More CF eval / LoLo questions  1259  6 Started by (1) How can I make LoLo boot-up at reset (instead of dBUG) (2) Does dBUG need to use a serial EEPROM to function properly and/or to be able to execute a script after reset When I type go FFE40000 from dBUG, I get the message: serial eeprom not initialized: cpld code not detected. Do I need to have the CPLD programmed for a reset script to work (3) I would like to load a file that executes from RAM in low memory--what is the easiest way to have this application execute on reset If I l...

5 Replies and 1463 Views FlexBus R/W  1463  5 Started by Has anyone analysed the timing for the FlexBus The implementation of the R/W signal looks kind of odd to me. The EVB has the R/W signal connecting to WE of the Boot Flash. During a write cycle, the R/W goes low after the first rising edge of the clock and it is de-asserted at the end of the bus cycle. First, if you do multiple write, you may violate the WE's 'high width duration' requirement of the boot flash since a new bus cycle will start immediately after the completion of prior bu...

8 Replies and 1353 Views How to use the Code Flash  1353  8 Started by I can't find any info on burning the code flash. How is this done I saw a note in another group about the Flash Burner in CodeWarrior not supported by LOGICPD, and the UPDATER utility seems to just want to do the dBUG update which is at a different address. (I tried using the CodeWarrior tool and had all kinds of problems.) How do you do this at LOGICPD Also I saw an indication that there was a version of EVB that didn't handle the code flash addressing properly and needed a hardware change. ...

1 Replies and 1328 Views SREC files for LogicLoader  1328  1 Started by I'm trying to burn an app in flash memory. I'm guessing that's what LogicLoader can do for me, since the CodeWarrior tools don't seem to be able to run for the MCF548xEVB. I've registered my board with LOGIC, but I can't find the LoLo SREC files that are supposed to be downloadable acording to the app note that tells me how to restore that utility. I'm guessing the utility was clobbered as I have followed the dBUG instructions to go and run from 0xFF840000, but nothing comes up. Even after I ave...
