San Jose, CA (September 9, 2005) Blunk Microsystems has added support for phyCORE®-MCF548x, PHYTEC's single board computer based on Freescale's MCF548x ColdFire processor.
Included in the phyCORE548x BSP (board support package) are:
- Low level initialization of the MCF5485 including CPU, Communications I/O Subsystem, System Integration Unit (SIU) and SDRAM controller, allowing TargetOS™ applications to boot from external Flash
- Drivers for the MCF5485's dual Fast Ethernet Controllers (FECs). The driver uses the highest negotiable combination of half and full duplex, 10 and 100 Mbps, and implements a zero-copy interface to TargetTCP™, Blunk Microsystems' high performance TCP/IP stack. Minimal time is spent in the FEC interrupt handler. Supports TFTP downloads, FTP transfers, Telnet access to the TargetOS command line monitor, and other TCP/IP applications.
- Interrupt-driven and polled-mode drivers for MCF5485 Programmable Serial Controller (PSC) channels PSC0 and PSC1 in UART mode
- Support for the MCF5485 MMU
- Support for the MCF5485 data and instruction caches
- A menu-driven Flash programmer for installing TargetOS boot applications into the external flash
- Integration with CrossStep™/ColdFire, the embedded TargetOS IDE for ColdFire from Blunk
- phyCORE548x BSP is royalty-free. Standard Platform License allows use on one product development and unlimited distribution of executable code in that product. Includes full source code, user's manual, and one year of technical support.
- Contact Blunk for a turnkey demo of TargetOS for the phyCORE-MCF548x eval board.
