CYPRESS EZUSB FX2 USB DRIVER

The usbstress software http: This web page is designed as a community resource, with cross links to related projects as well as hosting some Linux-focused efforts directly. At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver. The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus control , but it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware. 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.

EZ USB on Linux

One suitable loader is available from Cypress. Devices that also have off-chip memory use the two stage loader mode.

That means computers need to download firmware to such devices before they’re used. Ezuxb number of them need to download firmware before they are usable.

Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing. Plus, it’s easier to distribute updated firmware if you don’t need to upgrade a kernel driver to do that.

At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver. A company called AnchorChips now owned by Cypress came out with an innovative and useful product a while ago: There’s a project working on HID firmware: The Linux system will typically be much more powerful, since it has at least a bit processor and richer software environment.

For in-the-field product updates, or for developers, you can use a specialized second stage loader to write the boot EEPROMs. Firmware source is available.

This software is still usable on 2. Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on cyprfss site. The usbstress software http: The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus controlbut it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware.

Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory. Plugging EZ-USB devices into a Linux system runs device-specific scripts, which can download the appropriate firmware hexfile.

Cypress EZ-USB FX2 (CY7C68XXX)

You could run simple tests that transferred control, bulk, or isochronous traffic. When supported directly by the Linux kernel, these devices appear just like any other kind of serial port.

For end user scenarios, it hooks up easily to hotplug utilities. 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 cypress. USB devices typically have to work with many operating systems.

It can support all USB endpoints 30 plus control.
