Standalone CFv2 chip programming solution for production, ideally free?

As the caffeine level in my blood stream shows, we are nearing our production deadline :smileysurprised: and this means we need to sort out some way of programming lots of boards (MCF52259) through the BDM connection.


We don't really want to have to buy the factory their own copy of CW and/or P&E's programmer if we can avoid it as both solutions weigh in around the $1000 mark, but we do need something solid and reliable that will stand up to a bit of use (EG programming 1000 boards in a run) which rules out the homebrew/DIY style OSBDM route.


So, is there a standalone gadget out there which can program a V2 Coldfire over the BDM port for less than $1000?
