Cyclone Universal Flash programing tool
  • 4.3" Touch screen

  • 16 MBytes available for storing up to 8 separate downloads and programming algorithms

  • Automatic frequency detection of target

  • Target power switching

  • Works with 1.6V-5.2V targets

  • Includes cables and software for flash programming all supported CPUs and external Flash devices

  • Can provide serial numbering

  • An API is available for integration into ATE systems

 

  • Connects to PC via Ethernet, USB 2 (Full Speed) and serial port

  • Interactive Windows driven Flash Programming or remote controlled programming

  • Or as a standalone programmer

  • Will operate as a BDM debugger  --- its Ethernet port makes it super fast and it is supported by many popular development environments including GCC/GDB, Keil, CodeWarror, Kinetis Design Studio

 

† ARM Cortex M4 currently supports the following families:  ATMEL SAMxxx, STM32, NXP M0,M3,M4, Freescale Kinetis (all), S32, TI-Stellaris LM3S,LM4,TM4C12xx, Infineon XMC4xxx, Maxim 716xx, Silicon Labs EFM32,SiM3, Cypress PSoC®4, Toshiba TX00,TX03,TX04 as well as a wide range of on and off chip SPI and off chip flash memories.

 

And now with faster links to both the PC and the target the Cyclone Universal FX  can speed up the production line and add extra security to your programming process. ......... For more details of this product  Cyclone Universal FX

 

 

CPU Support and features are as for the Cyclone Universal with the following enhancements :-

  • USB 2.0 link now supports "High-speed" protocol (up to 480Mb/sec link to the PC).

  • 1 Gbyte internal memory, no practical limit to # of images held.

  • SDHC Port for even more space.

  • For most recent CPUs ( e.g. Cortex M0-4, Qorivva and Coldfire) a variant of the communication link to the target is provided that increases the download speed to a max of 25Mb/sec giving up to 5 x faster download of data.

  • Additional security features include ensuring that if you outsource your production no one can "run off a few units" without you knowing.

Cyclone Universal Flash programing tool


The Cyclone Universals can both be used in 4 different modes:

  • Interactive programming packages are provided for all supported CPU families. 
  • Or you can link it to a PC, download multiple target programs to it and then disconnect it from the PC.  It then becomes a manually controlled, standalone  flash programmer for on chip or off chip memory.
  • Or it can be driven by a PC via the Ethernet, USB or Serial port with automated commands either using command line instructions or from a C program using the dll included in the package.
  • A PC controlling multiple cyclonesWith the addition of P&E Windows based Debugger ( works with Assembler and C ) it can be used to debug code by providing downloading to memory, access to it and the registers, as well as having the ability to set breakpoints, run the CPU at full speed, slowly or in single step mode. Support for the Cyclone Universal  is being provided by a number of leading C compiler manufacturers within their C Debugging environment.

A Software Development Kit is available that allows multiple Cyclones to be driven by a single CPU for economical operation in large production environments.

Automated Control Package

These Windows packages include a command line driven application, Cyclone Launch a batch control system and a set of DLLs providing a range of features of value when using the Cyclone in production situations :-
Basic Edition -----  Free Download ----  Controls  a single Cyclone from a PC via USB or Ethernet allowing one Programming Image to be held on the Cyclone which does not have to be downloaded every time so increasing performance.
Professional Edition -----  Controls  up to 3 Cyclones from a PC via USB or Ethernet, allowing up to 8 Programming Images, which do not have to be downloaded every time, to be changed on the fly and dynamic data such as serial numbers to manipulated from the PC. Supported devices can be programmed in parallel, even if they are different devices with different data.
Enterprise Edition -----  As for the Pro version but unlimited numbers of Cyclones may be controlled from a single PC, More than 8 images can exist on the Cyclones and Licences for 5 end user PCs are included.  Also provided is a full description of the RS232 and Ethernet command Protocols so that non Windows users can implement similar functionality.
