PEmicro Releases USB Multilink BDM Interfaces for ColdFire and PowerPC

 Boston, Massachusetts— P&E Microcomputer Systems continues to expand its offering of USB Multilink BDM Interfaces by proudly announcing the release of two new interfaces for the ColdFire and PowerPC families. The USB-ML-CF is a USB-port-to-target BDM interface for the ColdFire MCF52xx/53xx/54xx families of processors. P&E has also released the USB-ML-PPCBDM, which is a USB-port-to-target BDM interface for the 5xx/8xx families of PowerPC devices. Both new USB Multilink BDM interfaces feature:

  • USB interface from PC to Multilink for fast programming and debugging, with the ease and compatibility of the USB interface. Higher download rate is over 3x faster than P&E's parallel port cable. Wide target operating voltage of 1.80v-5.25v.
