Getting started with OPENOCD using FT2232H adapter for SWD debugging

Yahya Tawil wrote a tutorial about flashing EFM32 MCUs with OpenOCD using FT2232H adapter: Learn how to make flashing your ARM-based MCU easy by using OpenOCD debugger with an FT2232H adapter. Old MCUs from vendors like ATMEL and MICROCHIP, like the PIC16F and Atmega family, tend to have a special programming interface to program internal […]

Bus Blaster hack: Flashing a PC BIOS chip

Zougloub modified the Bus Blaster V2 somewhat and successfully flashed a PC BIOS chip. By using the onboard FTDI FT2232H chip in SPI mode, and slightly modifying the CPLD logic, he successfully established a link to the BIOS chip. He was now able to update his BIOS and use a processor with his motherboard that […]

App Note: Using FT2232H in FT245 synchronus FIFO mode

Ftdi’s FT2232H chip is a very useful device, it has two USB channels supporting the High speed USB standard. When the highest bandwidth is needed, the FT245 synchronous FIFO mode provides the best performance delivering up to 40MB/s transfer rates. This app note by FTDI provides all the necessary information to get this mode started. […]

Week in (p)review: February 27, 2011

Don’t forget to share your current project in the comments or the forum. This week our favorite project gets a free SOIC protoboard. Here’s a summary of major developments over the last week: A new Bus Blaster v1 JTAG debugger was released Check out Dogsbody’s Demon Core v3.07 for the Logic Sniffer. We also released […]

Free PCB Sunday: FT2232H breakout board

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. Our PCBs are made through Seeed Studio’s Fusion board service. This week we’re giving away two […]
