COBRA5329 Description

COBRA5329COBRA Module with SVGA Graphics Controller

The MCF532x (DragonFire) is a 32-bit microprocessor family based on the established ColdFire architecture using a high-performance V3 core with 240 MHz clock developed for man-machine interface applications that use graphics, such as measuring devices, operation terminals, etc. All members of the family contain a 32 kByte internal SRAM, an SVGA LCD controller (up to 800 x 600), USB Host and USB on-the-go, an SDRAM controller for two memory banks, a 16-channel DMA controller, three UARTs, a queued SPI interface as well as other peripheral elements.

The COBRA5329 module is a versatile single board computer based on the MCF5329 ColdFire microprocessor. It has all the necessary features to build a „stand alone“ system and can be integrated into a customer‘s application. The COBRA5329 has been developed as a joint project of EBV Elektronik, National Semiconductor, Freescale, senTec Elektronik and emlix.

The uClinux Board Support Package (BSP) is a standard delivery component of the COBRA5329 starter kit. The BSP comprises a current Linux toolchain (compiler, etc.) tailored to the DragonFire, and a core with root file system optimised to the board. With the support of the integrated SVGA LCD controller and a range of sample programs for the Nano-X graphical user interface, developers can start programming their own graphical applications within a relatively short time. The Board Support Package includes a coLinux-based development environment that allows the board to be initialized directly from a Windows XP PC.
