CYPRESS EZUSB FX2 USB DRIVER DOWNLOAD
The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus control , but it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware. This software is still usable on 2. Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on this site. At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver. One suitable loader is available from Cypress.

Plugging EZ-USB devices into a Linux system cylress device-specific scripts, which can download the appropriate firmware hexfile. There’s a project working on HID firmware: When supported directly by the Linux kernel, these devices appear just like any other kind of serial port. This software is still usable on 2.
Someone could usefully write a Free Software version. For in-the-field product updates, or for developers, you can use a specialized second stage loader to write the boot EEPROMs. Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing.
That means computers need to download firmware to such devices before they’re used. Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory.
Devices that also have off-chip memory use the two stage loader mode. One suitable loader is available from Cypress. A company called AnchorChips now owned by Cypress came out with an innovative and useful product a while ago: Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on this site.
USB devices typically have to work with many operating systems. Plus, it’s easier to distribute updated ezusg if you don’t need to upgrade a kernel driver to do that.
Cypress EZ-USB FX2 (CY7C68XXX)
The usbstress software http: You could run simple tests that transferred control, bulk, or isochronous traffic.
A number of them need to download firmware before they are usable.
It can support all USB endpoints 30 plus control. Martin Diehl has provided EZ-USB firmware implementing simple device protocols that are very useful when used with usbtest software from Linux-USB hosts, to help verify correct operation of the host and isolate bugs.
For end user scenarios, it hooks up easily to hotplug utilities.
At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver. The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus controlbut it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware.
EZ USB on Linux
This ezuab page is designed as a community resource, with cross links to related projects as well as hosting some Linux-focused efforts directly. The Linux system will typically be much more powerful, since it has at least a bit processor and richer software environment. Firmware source is available.
