Hello,

There is a wonderful open-source JTAG tools available in
sourceforge.net. It supports a variety of processors and also CFI
complaint flashes. Please go through the site to know more info.
http://openwince.sourceforge.net/jtag/

We have added support for ADSP 21065L (MBGA) processor with AMD 512x8
flash. We have tried this new processor support in a Linux platform and
which is working fine.

The current patch (new addition) supports

(1) ADSP - 21065L SHARC Processor (MBGA) which does not have a device
ID register

(2) Provision for adding support for devices which do not have device
ID registers.

(3) Supported AMD Flash memory of size 512K * 8bit (AM29F040B &
AM29LV040B). This flashes are not CFI compliant.

4) The new addition can work parallel with the current JTAG tools. With
a single command, it can switch to SHARC JTAG mode. In this mode it
will support only SHARC 21065L processor.
