Cyclone Pro

Please note that the Cyclone Universal has replace the Cyclone PRO.



The ultimate 8 bit debugging tool

 This version holds multiple Program images



Works with 68HC08 HCS08/RS08,  68HC12/S12/S12X/12Z and ColdFire+/V1

  • Connects to PC via Ethernet, USB and serial port

  • Interactive Windows driven Flash Programming or remote controlled programming

  • Or as a standalone programmer

  • 3 MBytes available for storing multiple downloads and algorithms

  • Will also operate as a BDM or MON08 debugger --- its Ethernet port makes it super fast

  • Automatic frequency detection of target

  • Automatic baud rate detection of target

  • Works with 1.6V-5V targets at 1-8MHz (08) or 0.1-35MHz (12)

  • MON08 configuration initialised on reset

  • Control of power sequencing of target to manage security access when programming flash

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

The Cyclone Pro can be used in 4 different modes:

  • Interactive programming packages are provided for all 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 memory or in the case of the HC12/S12 for on 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 PEmicro 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 Pro 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.


Cyclone Options

All the  Cyclones can be upgraded with the following options......

Additional Flash Memory
This option provides 2Gbytes of additional memory images implemented using a compact Flash card (one included).  The Cyclone Flash option allows for faster, easier, and more flexible programming of data whether it is during field updates or on production runs.

Automated Control Package
These Windows packages include a command line driven application Cyclone Launch 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.
