How do I customize a CP2615 on a board I designed?
To customize a CP2615 during development and prototyping, Xpress Configurator is the recommended GUI tool.
In a production setting, the Standalone Manufacturing Tool is an available command line tool for Windows, Mac and Linux. For more information about the Standalone Manufacturing Tool, see Application Note AN721: USBXpress Device Customization Guide.
To customize a CP2615, Xpress Configurator and the Standalone Manufacturing Tool require a CP2112 USB-to-I2C bridge, and the CP2112's PID must be 0xEA93. See the following connection diagram.
By default, the CP2112 PID is 0xEA90. To change the PID of a CP2112, use Xpress Configurator and refer to Application Note AN721: USBXpress Device Customization Guide.
Note: A CP2112 with PID 0xEA93 is included on the CP2615 Evaluation Board. Therefore, the CP2615 on the CP2615 Evaluation Board is ready for customization by Xpress Configurator and the Standalone Manufacturing Tool.
Note: When using the CP2112 on the CP2615 Evaluation Kit to program a CP2615 on a custom board, remove the shorting blocks on J13, J14, J15, and J16.
