Cypress EZ-USB FX2 (CY7C68XXX)
For end user scenarios, it hooks up easily to hotplug utilities. There’s a project working on HID firmware: Their Linux support builds on the common kernel and user mode USB infrastructure, which you can read about elsewhere on this site.
This web page is designed as a community resource, with cross links to related projects as well as hosting some Linux-focused efforts directly. At this writing, all that firmware is statically linked into the appropriate mini-driver. Devices fypress also have off-chip memory use the two stage loader mode.
You could run simple tests that transferred control, bulk, or isochronous traffic. Plugging EZ-USB devices into a Linux system runs device-specific scripts, which can download the appropriate firmware hexfile.
Someone could usefully write a Free Software version. Device firmware just processes interrupts, fills buffers, and tells the hardware to do its thing. One suitable loader is available from Cypress.
USB devices typically have to work with many operating systems. Kernel device drivers can do the downloads, but then the firmware just locks down kernel memory.
It can support all USB endpoints 30 plus control. The usbstress software http: This software is still usable on 2. A company called AnchorChips now owned by Cypress came out with an innovative gx2 useful product a while ago: The Linux system will typically be much more powerful, since it has at least a bit processor and richer software environment. The FX2 doesn’t support quite as many endpoints six plus controlbut it does handle multibuffered high speed transfers in hardware.

Firmware source is available. When supported directly by the Linux kernel, these devices appear just like any other kind of serial port. 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 in-the-field product uusb, or for developers, you can use a specialized second stage loader to write the boot EEPROMs.

A number of them need to download firmware before they are usable. That means computers need to download firmware to such devices before they’re used. Plus, it’s easier to distribute updated firmware if you don’t need to upgrade a kernel driver to do that.
