EZ USB FX2 DRIVER

Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory. Someone could usefully write a Free Software version. It can support all USB endpoints 30 plus control. A number of them need to download firmware before they are usable. When supported directly by the Linux kernel, these devices appear just like any other kind of serial port. Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on this site. Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing.

Martin Diehl has provided EZ-USB firmware ub 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.

Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on this site. Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory.

A company called AnchorChips now owned by Cypress came out with an innovative and useful product a while ago: You could run simple tests that transferred control, bulk, or isochronous traffic.

For in-the-field product updates, or for developers, you can use a specialized second stage loader to write the boot EEPROMs. This software is still usable on 2.

Someone could usefully write a Jsb Software version. When supported directly by the Linux kernel, these devices appear just like any other kind of serial port. At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver. This web page is designed as a community resource, with cross links to related projects as well as hosting some Linux-focused efforts directly.

One suitable loader is available from Cypress. There’s a project working on HID firmware: For end user scenarios, it hooks up easily to eez utilities.

USB devices typically have to work with many operating systems. A number of them need to download firmware before they are usable.

Devices that also have off-chip memory use the two stage loader mode. The Linux system will typically be much more powerful, since it has at least a bit processor and richer software environment.

Plus, it’s easier to distribute updated firmware if you don’t need to upgrade a kernel driver to do that. Firmware source is available. That means computers need to download firmware to such devices before they’re used.

It can support all USB endpoints 30 plus control. The usbstress software http: Plugging EZ-USB devices into a Linux system runs device-specific scripts, which can download the appropriate firmware hexfile. The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus controlbut it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware. Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing.
