Where can I obtain the files for the Cypress chip that is used on the ML40x, ML50x, and ML605boards?

Solution


The USB EEPROM on the ML40x, ML50x and ML605 boards can be reprogrammed to default factory settings using the following steps:
1. Download and install the USB tools from the Cypress website. These are in the form of the CY3663 - EZ-OTG / EZ-Host Development Kit, found at:
http://www.cypress.com/design/SD1025
Registration on the Cypress site is required.
2. Download the following files from the ML40x Web pages (in the reference design sections):
http://www.xilinx.com/products/boards/ml401/files/ml40x_usb.zip
This ZIP file contains all USB sources.
3. Connect the USB cable to your board.

For the ML605 this requires connecting a USB type A to mini-B cable between your PCs USB port and the USB port on the ML605, near the power connector:



Connect the power adapter for your board and power on the board.
4. Run the following in a DOS window:
