ColdFire USB device from Freescale

Freescale Semiconductor has expanded its 32bit ColdFire USB device portfolio to offer flexible USB connectivity for a wide range of industrial applications.

Freescale's ColdFire USB portfolio expansion includes the MCF5221x MCU family with Full-Speed USB On-The-Go (OTG) and the MCF5253 embedded processor with Hi-Speed USB OTG.

Leveraging an optimized architecture designed for low operating voltage, the ColdFire devices are designed to deliver low power consumption without compromising performance. The devices come standard with a USB software stack created in collaboration with CMX Systems, enabling developers to streamline the design process and accelerate time to market.

ColdFire controllers with USB OTG provide highly integrated embedded control for designers who need cost-effective USB connectivity for industrial control, factory automation, HVAC systems, fire/security systems, point-of-sale equipment and health care monitoring instrumentation. The ColdFire devices can also be used in consumer applications that require USB connectivity, such as digital cameras, PDAs and PC interfaces.

USB OTG gives developers the option of using the on-chip USB module as a USB device or a USB host. USB OTG also allows multiple USB devices to communicate without a host interface, making it ideal for system-to-system communication applications. The ColdFire USB controllers also integrate USB transceivers on chip, which reduces system cost and board space and simplifies system designs based on these devices.

SRP for MCF5221x starts at $4.39 in 10,000 quantities. The M52211EVB evaluation board is available at an SRP of $299.

The device is currently sampling.

SRP for MCF5253 starts at $ $8.64 in 10,000 quantities. The M5253EVBE evaluation board is available at an SRP of $680.

The device is currently sampling.
