About V1 ColdFire Processor
The V1 ColdFire Processor offers a low-cost entry point into the ColdFire 32-bit processor architecture. A simplified version of the V2 ColdFire Processor, the V1 ColdFire Processor is a high performance low-power, low-area implementation that is fully upward compatible to other ColdFire implementations such V2, V3, and V4. Debug support is implemented through a single-wire background debug module (BDM) interface. A separate debug clock enables shut-down of debug logic when not in use.
