CYPRESS USB FX2 DRIVER

| | 0 Comments

There’s a project working on HID firmware: Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing. That means computers need to download firmware to such devices before they’re used. Plus, it’s easier to distribute updated firmware if you don’t need to upgrade a kernel driver to do that. Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory.

Plus, it’s easier to distribute updated firmware if you don’t need to upgrade a kernel driver to do that. USB devices typically have to work with many operating systems.

The usbstress software http: One suitable loader is available from Cypress. You could run simple tests that transferred control, bulk, or isochronous traffic.

Cypress EZ-USB FX2 – LinuxTVWiki

When supported directly by the Linux kernel, these devices appear just like any other kind of serial port. For end user fx, it hooks up easily to hotplug utilities. Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on this site.

Someone could usefully write a Free Software version.

Plugging EZ-USB devices into a Linux system runs device-specific scripts, which can download the appropriate firmware hexfile. It can support all USB endpoints 30 plus control.

There’s a project working on HID firmware: That means computers need to download firmware to such devices before they’re used. Devices that also have off-chip memory use the two stage loader mode.

Firmware source is available. The Linux system will typically be much more powerful, since it has at least a bit processor and richer software environment.

Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing. Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory. At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver.

Martin Diehl has provided EZ-USB firmware implementing simple device protocols that are very useful when used with usbtest software from Linux-USB hosts, to help verify correct operation of the host and isolate bugs. A number of them need to download uxb before they are usable.

For in-the-field product updates, or for developers, you can use a specialized second stage loader to write the boot EEPROMs. The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus controlbut it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware. A company called AnchorChips now owned by Cypress came out with an innovative and useful cyress a while ago: This software is still usable on 2.
