The Coldfire rig allows students to practice their cross-development skills on a 32-bit microcontroller, using an open-source microcontroller-specific version of Linux.

Each rig comprises aMotorola (Freescale) MC5272 Coldfire 32-bit microcontroller, which is interfaced with a 7-segment LED display output board (UTS inhouse design). Please note that this rig type is due to be phased out at the end of 2011 and will be replaced by the OMAP rig. Please do not plan to use this rig beyond this time.
