After supplying all your Embedded Development
Tool needs for 42 years
Having reached the grand old age of 75 it is time to relax and fulfil other ambitions.
Its been an exciting ride with you, our customers, often on the
bleeding edge of technology
Stay well I wish you all success in your future projects.
But what to do with the web site ? It has taken >12 man years of work to create a repository of knowledge on many aspects of the art and science of embedded microprocessor development and even after closing the shop it still gets over 4,000 visitors per month. So as a service to my customers I have decide to keep it live providing my technical insights on the products and then redirecting viewers to sites where they can purchase the items they used to buy from us.

The "Information zone" consists of articles produced as background tutorials on subjects of interest to those designing new products. As different CPUs have became available this has lead to new development techniques and in particular to new ways of communicating between nodes.
The USB Multilink Universal Interfaces
These greatly simplify the task of programming and debugging embedded target systems. They allow a PC to communicate with a target processor through a high-speed USB interface at the PC and a debug port at the micro. The PC can then control the microprocessor via the debug port of the target MCP55xx-57xx processor.
If you are unfamiliar with the use of "On-Chip-Debugging" we have a short tutorial
There are two models in the range - The Universal which is lower cost and the Universal - FX which provides significant performance improvements.
Both support the Cortex (see below † ) as well as the NXP/Freescale architectures
And have these Features
Target Frequency: 16Khz-50Mhz (applies to HCS08, RS08, ColdFire V1, S12Z, or HCS12X only)
Target Auto-frequency detection for HC(S)12(X,Z), HCS08 + trimming capabilities for HCS08 devices.
Generates programming voltage on RESET line for RS08 devices.
Includes ribbon cables for all supported architecture
USB and parallel Multilink cables are also available if compatibility with older systems is required.
The USB Multilink Universal FX
As well as supporting all the architectures listed for the Universal, in addition, these are supported:-
683xx / CPU32, HC16, MPC5xx/8xx and Power Architecture® PX series
For Synchronous architectures such as the Cortex, Kinetis, Qorivva, Coldfire V2-V4, 683xx, HC16, Power Architecture PX Series and the DSC the communications can run at 4 to 10 times faster than the Universal or the older Multilink interfaces.
Also it can provide 200 mA power to target MCU and it provides I/O line clamping for added protection
Development Software support
By adding the Flash Programming Software these units can program Flash memory and EEPROMs on the chip or attached to it. They are suitable for both development and small production runs
PEmicro Products support a wide range of Qorivva Development options
NXP/Freescale CodeWarrior 10.6, Cosmic
-- Built in support for Multilink Universal & FX for both Debugging and Programming
PEmicro's In-Circuit Debugger software - ICD for Windows is a powerful tool for debugging . It uses the processor's background code debug mode, via an interface cable, to give the user direct access to all on-chip resources. See these details
PKG Qorivva Pro includes a winIDE, Flash programmer and ICD along with a GCC compiler and an Assembler for the 55xx to 57xx variants (aka Nexus)
Unit programs A set of C library calls that provide an API for using the JTAG interface. Ideal for those who need to write their own PC based test or diagnostics programs. The standard version includes a license for 5 units. The distribution version provides unlimited production of applications.
Qorivva Flash Programming Software
An interactive flash programming software package that allows you to program/reprogram both internal and external flash devices in-circuit, via a PEmicro interface cable. Perfect for development, production line programming, or field firmware upgrades. PEmicros products contains our entire library of setup files for this processor, and includes both interactive and command-line versions for use in development and production.
To see which Flash devices PEmicro support follow this link .
Flash memory functions are :
Cyclone 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 :-
