This BSP is for a FreeScale? evaluation board which is described at http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=M5206ELITE&parentCode=MCF5206E&nodeId=0162468rH3YTLC00M91277 as having the following features:

  • MCF5206e processor running at 54 MHz
  • 1 MByte Fast Static RAM
  • ROM Monitor/Debugger? programmed in 1 Mbyte of Flash with 768 Kbytes of FLASH available for customer use
  • 72-pin SIMM socket for up to 32 Mbytes asynchronous DRAM (FPM or EDO), DRAM not fitted
  • 2 channels of DMA
  • Dual Programmable UARTs - 1 available for customer use
  • Background Debug Module (BDM) interface connector
  • BDM Cable
  • Real-time clock and NVRAM programmed with the time and date (GMT)
  • High drive output capability available through open collector device
  • 7-segment LED display providing board status information
  • Microprocessor Expansion Bus connectors to expand memory and I/O capabilities
  • Power Requirements are +5V regulated power supply (1.5A min.)

The Coldfire simulator available from http://www.slicer.ca/coldfire/index.php will run this BSP although that simulator is EXTREMELY slow taking 8-10 times real-time on a fast development machine. Instructions for running an executable on this BSP were posted to the RTEMS list (http://www.rtems.com/ml/rtems-users/2006/january/msg00153.html). The only tricky thing using those instructions is that you have to convert the ELF .exe into a binary using objcopy before downloading it to the simulator.

It appears from posts on the net that the SkyEye? simulator (http://www.skyeye.org) simulator may have merged the above simulator. If someone has instructions for running this BSP on the SkyEye? simulator, please post them.

Test Reports

4.7-branch 2006-11-15: User:JoelSherrill? reports that hello, ticker, and paranoia run using the Coldfire simulator.
