Please note that not all ColdFire devices which provide the EzPort interface are supported by this programmer. Please verify that the device you want to program is available in the device list.

The EzPort interface uses the SPI protocol, therefore one of the FTDI devices which support the MPSSE is used to interface to the ColdFire chip.

Electrical Interface

The ColdFire EzPort programmer uses FTDI's MPSSE engine to control the programming process. See Flash Insight Help - Overview for FTDI chips that implement the MPSSE engine.

Device

Select the device that you intend to program from the supplied list. Only devices that support the EzPort interface are listed.

Clock Frequency

Set the clock frequency for the main clock of the device. The supplied clock frequency is used to calculate the clock frequency used with the EzPort interface.

NOTE: The EzPort interface requires that the clock frequency not exceed a specific maximum and an incorrect clock frequency may damage the device.
Please exercise caution when setting this parameter.

Test (Button)

Click the Test button to perform a communications check with the ColdFire device once the interface has been configured.
