Starting a “Fire” by using Smoldering Ashes

Time: Fall 2000

  • Implementation of a ColdFire System by Thai Luong, John Chenault, Greg Steglich
  • The Protel Problem
  • Current Status
    • Untested
    • Unevaluated
    • Unusable?
objectives deliverables
Objectives & Deliverables
  • Develop working computer using the Motorola Coldfire Processor
  • Evaluate the current status of the previously existing hardware designs
  • Redesign (if necessary)
  • Complete PCB layout with Protel
  • Send designs off to have manufacturer fabricate PCB
objectives and deliverables cont
Objectives and Deliverables (cont.)
  • Mount all components onto board
  • Port VxWorks to Flash Rom
  • Test Completed design with Dumb Terminal
  • Rewrite Labs for CPSC 462
historical points of interest
Historical Points of Interest
  • Spring 1997 - Dr. Michel Lynch from the University of Florida
  • Success spawns interest for Dr. Mahapatra of Texas A&M University
  • Legendary “Group 5” desperately attempts recreation of Dr. Lynch’s system
  • January 25th, 2001 - Up and coming Pyromaniacs latch onto Coldfire project.
