CY3686 EZ-USB NX2LP-Flex Development Kit

The CY3686 EZ-USB NX2LP-Flex(TM) USB 2.0 Development Kit is designed to accelerate your development of a NAND flash based USB 2.0 application featuring industry's first and only programmable USB 2.0 NAND controller (CY7C68033 and CY7C68034). Design a feature-rich thumbdrive with fingerprint sensor or GPS or add NAND storage to your DVB card. NX2LP-flex eliminates the need of EEPROMs in your firmware based designs!

The combination of revolutionary hardware and programming utility software provides the designer with complete development and manufacturing support. This development kit allows scalable testing and evaluation of the Cypress EZ-USB NX2LP-Flex NAND Flash Controller device (CY7C68033 and CY7C68034) with different NAND flash devices. The hardware platform is designed to support between 1-8 single-device NAND flash chips, or 1-4 dual-device NAND flash chips for scalable density testing.

Additionally, Cypress includes a Device Programming Utility to assist in the manufacturing environment. This programming utility allows easy NAND flash configuration during the design and manufacturing process. Use NX2LP-Flex Release Notes.pdf as your starting point.
