PEmicro's Cyclone programmers are powerful in-circuit, stand-alone programmers that support a wide range of ARM Cortex and NXP® processor families. The Cyclone is available in two different model configurations, CYCLONE_ACP and CYCLONE_UNIVERSAL, which have the same functionality and vary only by their supported MCU's. Cyclone programmers are versatile tools that offer on-board storage of programming images, provide power to the target, support manual or automated programming, and have an easy-to-use touchscreen interface. Programming may be launched by a single button press without a PC or automatically from a PC via the automated control SDK. The Cyclone may also be used as a debug probe during development.
- Many Supported Architectures
a) The CYCLONE_ACP covers a wide variety of ARM Cortex devices.
b) The CYCLONE_UNIVERSAL covers these same ARM Cortex devices as well as the following 8/16/32 bit device families: NXP's: Kinetis, LPC, S32, Qorivva (MPC5xxx), MPC5xx/8xx, DSC, S12Z, RS08, S08, HC08, HC(S)12(X), Coldfire, and STMicroelectronics SPC5 MCU's.
- Multiple Communications Interfaces
USB 2.0, Ethernet, and Serial interfaces
- Extended Security Features
Internal memory protection & encryption
- On-Board Storage
16MB internal memory. The Cyclone may be pre-programmed with non-volatile programming images and controlled via the touchscreen LCD, start button, or remotely from a PC (serial, USB, ethernet). Stand-alone programming operation does not require a PC.
- Power Switching
Allows switching of the target's power supply via Cyclone "power-in" and "power-out" jacks. On-board electromechanical relays handle the power switching. Power can also be provided to the target via the debug connection.
- Multiple Image Support
Multiple programming images may be stored in Cyclone memory. The Cyclone can store up to 8 images.
- Serial Number Programming
The Cyclone can program dynamic data, such as serial numbers.
- Touchscreen LCD Display
The 4.3" touchscreen display, in conjunction with the status LEDs and Start button, allows stand-alone control and configuration of the Cyclone.
