MCF5235 bdm documentation

Hello,

I am currently working on better patch to support the coldfire 2/2M processors with the m68k-bdm [1]. Working on that project I found the following information in the manuals:

Coldfire 2/2M Users Manual: 7-22, page 159:
Control Register Map for Read Control Register (RCREG) command:
RAMBAR0 = $C04

MCF5235 Manual: 3-8, page 697:
Control Register Map for Read Control Register (RCREG) command:
RAMBAR = $C05

From testing I known that the second value is correct but I am still wondering why it was chosen this way. Does that mean that a debugger can't treat all Coldfire 2 cores in the same way? I wanted to make only a distinction between 2 and 2M cores (the later one having the MAC registers).

Regards,
Christian Walter

Hi Christian,

The ColdFire 2/2M is very old documenation and the MCF5235 documenation is much newer.

The RAMBAR address did change from older to newer versions (it keeps the chip designers busy!).
