Default Low cost USB interfaces for ColdFire & PPC + Nexus development package

Now available in the UK & Europe from Computer Solutions are an economical
range of USB interfaces to speed up the development and debugging of systems
based on Motorola's PowerPC and ColdFire families

The new products, manufactured by P&E Microcomputer Systems, include
USB-based BDM interfaces for the PPC and ColdFire microprocessors and a JTAG
interface and development package for the PPC 55xx Nexus family.

The USB interfaces represent a major step forward in terms of user
convenience particularly now that some PC's are being supplied without
parallel ports. They are between three and five times faster than parallel
interfaces, while the PPC unit also offers a wider voltage range (1.8-5 V).
Another benefit is that they draw power from the USB Bus rather than from
the target

Both devices are compatible with P&E's in-circuit debugger and flash
programmer software packages to simplify debug and flash programming of the
target processor.

The development package for the PPC 55xx Nexus family includes a GCC
compiler that is configured to be up and running under Windows 'straight out
of the box'. Including a parallel port JTAG interface, the package provides
debugging with source code linkage, the ability to change and read memory
and registers, breakpoints and single-stepping. It also includes a flash
programmer and 'quickstart' manual.

The USB interfaces cost only 160 (plus VAT) or 240 Euro each, while the
Nexus package costs 550 (plus VAT) 825 Euro.
