Hello Sir, I am currently trying to develop a firmware on FX2 microcontroller from cypress, which is able to send continously data to a windows pc. However I have no idea where to start my doings. Should I first begin to program a windows application (do I need to write a driver?) or should I start programming the FX2-firmware. What I need is some kind of sample, that demonstrate the com...

Hi, I'm trying to modify the Cypress EZ-USB firmware for some added functionality, but I'm having some problems regarding running out of code space. It seems that when I call some of the EZUSB I2C library functions, my code space balloons by quite a bit. For example EZUSB_InitI2C would increase my code space by 500bytes. The default firmware already uses up over 6KB, which leaves me with a...

I am about to develop a Compact Flash I/O device for PDA (DELL AXIM). Fortunately I found a CF interface chipset with a UART port (Oxford Ox950). Now I got a few questions about the firmware design. 1) For the PDA side (Using PocketPC2003), I think the PDA already has an "integrated" CF driver inside of PPC2003, right? If I want to rewrite this driver, what should I do? What kind of tools...

Hi Recently more and more companies want to add security (authentication and/or encryption) to their devices firmware install/update process. Typically this is done by storing a secret encryption key in bootloader or elsewhere in internal MCU flash. This should work if bootloader is installed in secure facility by trusted people. But then manufacturing is outsourced/offshored and t

Im looking to encorporate usb2 into my embedded app. At of all the solutions, the Cypress FX2 IC, seems the best, it has an 8051 core with usb2. Has anyone used this? Jungo sells firmware for this chip (WinDriver), but is it meant to work along side of my application firmware in the same 8051?? It has very little ram, so Im guessing the jungo driver runs exclusively on it, and my applic...

Hi Folks I have been looking into some sorts of portable standalone programmers for PIC. The idea is for on site firmware update. The idea is to preload the programmer with the firmware hex code (presumably the programmer is equipped with flash/eeprom to house the binary code. For security reason, the hex code is not distributed), and the service engineer will take the programmer to si...
