The JTAG specification introduced daisy chaining of MCUs in order to reduce the number of headers required to debug and program multiple MCUs. JTAG daisy chaining allows multiple MCU’s (and other JTAG compatible hardware, such as FPGAs) to share a single debug header. PEmicro currently supports daisy chaining of ARM-Cortex MCUs via our Cyclone programmers and Multilink debug probes. The same is true for most PEmicro software, including our Eclipse plugin GDB Server, and our Cyclone automation and control packages. Read more...

For users of our Cyclone for Renesas stand-alone programmer, we've made our library of programming algorithms for supported Renesas devices available for download here. As always, if you do not see the algorithm you need for a supported device, you can use this link to request a custom algorithm. The Cyclone for Renesas currently supports the H8, R8C, and M16C families.

P&E Launches Cyclone Programmer For Renesas Devices
The power of P&E's Cyclone programmers is now available for Renesas! P&E's Cyclone for Renesas is a flexible, affordable in-circuit flash programming solution for Renesas devices that excels in a demanding production environment. After configuration, operation is as simple as one touch.

The Cyclone for Renesas includes these features:

Support is currently available for the R8C, M16C, and H8 families. A complete listing of supported devices is available here. Please contact us for information about support for other devices.


LCD Menu Display
LCD Menu Display The Cyclone for Renesas includes an extremely useful LCD Menu Display that greatly enhances the Cyclone's stand-alone capabilities. The LCD Menu Display allows the user to:
  • Configure the Cyclone without a PC
  • Quickly view and select from multiple programming images
  • Easily perform programming operations in stand-alone mode
  • Get direct feedback about programming results

Multiple Image Support
No need to swap programming images! The internal memory of the Cyclone for Renesas manages multiple images. Load several different programming images onto the Cyclone and choose between them using either the PC software or the LCD Menu on the unit itself. The Cyclone's memory can also be expanded with optional CompactFlash activation. Multiple Cyclone Images

Control Multiple Cyclones
Control Multiple Cyclones Automation can yield a big increase in productivity. P&E includes software with the Cyclone for Renesas that allows the user to automate control of a single Cyclone via a command-line executable or a .dll.

NOW AVAILABLE - P&E has introduced the Cyclone Automated Control Package, which allows users to manage multiple Cyclones simultaneously. Any supported devices can be programmed in parallel, even if they are different devices with different data.

Please visit P&E's website for information on the Cyclone Automated Control Package (available separately).


Optional CompactFlash Support
Expand the memory of your Cyclone for Renesas with P&E's new Compact Flash support. Store more images and larger images while adding flexibility and efficiency by reducing your need to be connected to the PC.

P&E's new CompactFlash Activation License activates the Manage Images Utility on the Cyclone interface so that it can be used with CompactFlash cards.
