<p>Fire Engines</p>

<p>The M5485EVBGHS development kit contains a module, called a Fire Engine, which can be purchased from Freescale in production volumes.&nbsp; <font face="Arial">The MCF5485 Fire Engine is a complete system on module (in SOM-ETX format)&nbsp;offering essential features for industrial and embedded networking applications.&nbsp; The use of the Mini-ITX baseboard included in the M5485EVB, or a custom peripheral board generated by the customer makes the Fire Engine the ideal foundation for&nbsp;developing embedded computing products. The Fire Engine provides a common reference pin-out on its expansion connectors, which enables customers to easily scale to next generation microprocessor Fire Engines when new functionality or performance is required.</font></p>

Board Setup

<h4> Board </h4> center?


  • Connect the included USB cable to the host PC.

</p> <p>

  • Connect the P&E USB ColdFire? Multilink adapter to the other end of the USB standard B

connector. </p> <p>

  • Connect the P&E Microcomputer Multilink adapter to the 26-pin BDM header on the Carrier Board

at X2. This connection is used for communication between the Freescale’s CodeWarrior? development suite and the phyCORE-MCF548x target hardware. Ensure that pin one marked on the adapter connects with pin one of the X2 connector. </p> <p>

  • Connect the included serial cable to the lower socket (P2A) of the double DB-9 connector on the

Carrier Board and to a free serial port of your host-PC. This will enable you to monitor board-host communication via a terminal emulation program, such as Windows HyperTerminal?. </p> <p>

  • Using the included 5VDC power adapter, connect the power socket on the board (X10) to a power

supply (refer to Figure 3 for the correct polarity). The phyCORE module/Carrier Board combination requires a 5 VDC@1A ±5 % regulated supply.</p>


<p> <h4> Figure: Connecting the Supply Voltage at X10 </h4>

The LEDs D31 and D32 (two green LEDs) should light, indicating that all voltages are supplied to the phyCORE module. The phyCORE-MCF548x should now be properly connected via the Carrier Board to a host-PC and power supply and you are now ready to use the Freescale’s CodeWarrior? tool chain to establish communication. This phyCORE module/Carrier Board combination shall also be referred to as "target hardware".</p>
