6.1. BDI2000 Installation and Configuration

6.1.1. Build Linux command line config tool:

bash$ cd gdbcop21-1.16-6xx-7xx-82xx-2003-04-01
bash$ mkdir bdisetup
bash$ cd bdisetup
bash$ unzip ../ 
Archive:  ../
  inflating: bdidll.c    
  inflating: bdisetup.c
  inflating: bdicmd.h
  inflating: bdidll.h
  inflating: bdierror.h
  inflating: makefile
  inflating: bdicnf.c
  inflating: bdicnf.h
bash$ make
gcc -O  -c -o bdicnf.o bdicnf.c
gcc -O  -c -o bdidll.o bdidll.c
gcc -O  -c -o bdisetup.o bdisetup.c
gcc -o ./bdisetup ./bdicnf.o ./bdidll.o ./bdisetup.o   -s
bash$ cp -p bdisetup /usr/local/bin/bdisetup

6.1.2. Usage:

bash$ bdisetup 
Usage of BDI setup program V1.10:
bdisetup -v [-pP] [-bB] [-s]
  -v  Read current versions
   P  Port e.g. /dev/ttyS0
   B  Baudrate 9, 19, 38, 57 or 115
  -s  if present, exit loader and start firmware

bdisetup -e [-pP] [-bB]
  -e  Erase firmware and logic
   P  Port e.g. /dev/ttyS0
   B  Baudrate 9, 19, 38, 57 or 115

bdisetup -u [-pP] [-bB] [-aA] [-tT] [-dD]
  -u  Update firmware and/or logic
   P  Port e.g. /dev/ttyS0
   B  Baudrate 9, 19, 38, 57 or 115
   A  Application type STD,GDB,ADA,TOR,ACC
   T  Target type: PPC400,MPC500,PPC600,PPC700,MPC800,MPC8200,MPC7400,MPC7450
   D  Directory with the firmware/logic files

bdisetup -c [-pP] [-bB] [-iI] [-hH] [-mM] [-gG] [-fF]
  -c  Program network configuration
   P  Port e.g. /dev/ttyS0
   B  Baudrate 9, 19, 38, 57 or 115
   I  BDI IP address e.g.
   H  Host IP address
   M  Subnet mask (default:
   G  Gateway IP address (default:
   F  Configuration file name

6.1.3. Example: Install firmware for MPC82xx processors

(Note: this is a simple tool. It does not perform any device locking, so root permissions are required to access the serial port.)

bash# bdisetup -u -p/dev/ttyS0  -b115 -aGDB -tMPC8200 -d.
Connecting to BDI loader
Firmware is already up to date
CPLD is already up to date

6.1.4. Setting Configuration Parameters:

bash# bdisetup -c -p/dev/ttyS0 -h10.0.0.11 \
> -i10.0.0.10 -m255.0.0.0 -f/tftpboot/ATC/ATC.cfg
Connecting to BDI loader
Writing network configuration
Writing init list and mode
Configuration passed
bash# bdisetup -v -p/dev/ttyS0 -b115 -s
