PEmicro is an industry trendsetter in hardware and software development tools for NXP and ARM Cortex microcontrollers. PEmicro takes pride in its committment to providing professional, low-cost development tools and prompt, knowledgeable customer support. PEmicro was founded in 1980 and incorporated in 1982 by Dr. David A. Perreault. PEmicro developed and marketed the first general purpose EPROM programmer. It was based on the Z80 microprocessor and provided the ability to reconfigure pinouts. The second product developed by PEmicro was an S100 bus-based ROM emulator. This product pushed forward the capability to rapidly develop microcomputer based systems. Having developed a large number of microcontroller / microprocessor systems including both hardware and software, PEmicro capitalized on this experience and began developing software development tools. Much of this effort was directed toward simulators and cross-assemblers. PEmicro developed the concept of an in-circuit simulator. This device combines the big features of a simulator with the added advantage of real IO. This concept was used in Motorola's (now NXP's) very successful promotion for the 68HC05K1 part called the KICS05. To assist with rapid and affordable product development, PEmicro developed the Multilink Universal and Multilink Universal FX - all-in-one development interfaces which support a broad range of NXP architectures - as well as the Tracelink, an advanced, sub-$1000 interface which supports external trace via NXP's CodeWarrior IDE. PEmicro also recently launched next genration CYCLONE and CYCLONE FX programmers. These programmers now feature large color touchscreens for easy manual operation. They support a broad range of ARM manufacturers and NXP architectures, and their operations can easily be automated. The CYCLONE FX programmers, as our flagship Cyclones, offer several powerful and unique enhancements to memory size, programming speed, and data security. Their USB host port also allows programming to be initiated and executed using a barcode scanner, which can be a time-saver for production lines that include a variety of products.
