Freescale introduces V2 ColdFire® MCF5225x, a one-stop-shop connectivity MCU family that integrates on-chip USB, Ethernet, CAN and encryption for various industrial application requirements.
** Featuring Ethernet + USB + CAN + Flexbus + encryption-functions, with up to 64k SRAM and 512k FLASH.
Recognizing that the majority of an embedded development teams resources are spent on software, Freescale is shipping our next-generation MCF5225x ColdFire devices with the market-proven Freescale MQX™ RTOS and software stacks, complimentary. The combination of high-performance ColdFire MCUs and Freescale MQX Software Solutions gives developers a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that helps accelerate application development success.

Freescale MQX RTOS features:
I got the M52259DEMOMCU after your roadshow earlier this year - MQX worked very well and we subsequently designed a new product line around the 52259 device. All along the M52259DEMOMCU unit worked excellent and then I decided to get a M52259EVB to test certain exiensions which was not available on the DEMO
1. Out of the box the EVB and the built-in demo works well until you try to work the labs - the onboard P&E BDM refuse to talk the CodeWarrior and embedded flash programmer, even after CWCF 7.1.1. and 7.1.2 as well as MQX 3.4 was installed. In fact not one of my existing CF development boards with P&E BDM's will talk to CW
2. There is not a scrap of documentation on the CPLD embedded in the board
3. Can somebody look at this please AAMOU?
In the first post under this topic made in January 2009, it is said that MQX will be available on IAR platform. I have few queries in this:
1. Any progress on this issue ? We have no info on either IAR or Freescale website.
2. Will RTCS stack also be available alongwith MQX? All will all other facilities of MQX also be available?
3. IAR currently charges separately for its RTOS / Stack etc. Will Freescale MQX/RTCS if used with IAR development tools be free like how is now with Codewarrier tools?
This sounds really good........but if I want to use these and all the great features of the firmware do I need to have the professional version of Code Warrior ? Or will it all compile / run on say the basic version or standard version ?
