PEmicro is pleased to announce that support has been added to its products for files using version 3 and version 4 of the ELF/DWARF format. This is in addition to existing support for ELF/DWARF version 2 and includes both debug and object information handling. Support for 64-bit objects and structures within the ELF/DWARF files has also been added. Support for these additional file formats is available today in PEmicro's debug, flash programming, and test products.





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 is pleased to announce that 64-bit Windows support has arrived, including support for Windows 7. P&E software has been upgraded to work under Windows 7 (and other Windows 64-bit operating systems) by using the latest version of our drivers - P&E Hardware Interface Drivers 10. There is no need to worry about P&E software compatibility if you're migrating to a Windows 64-bit OS at home or in the office. 

P&E is committed to ensuring a smooth transition to these newer operating sytems for our customers. Customers who have purchased P&E software within the last 12 months can contact us for a free ugprade. Customers who have purchased software between 12 and 24 months ago are eligible to upgrade by purchasing the latest version of the software at a 50% discount from the full price.

Unfortunately, due to OS and hardware driver limitations, P&E legacy products such as USB-ML-12 Rev. A, USB-ML-CF Rev A, the BDM Lightning Card and also parallel port versions of our programmers are not supported under Windows 7 and 64-bit systems. However, we are committed to supporting these products under 32-bit operating systems such as Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista by continuing to offer Version 9 of our P&E Hardware Interface Drivers. These can be downloaded from the Documentation and Downloads section of P&E's website, or directly at the following link:

We're pleased to announce the release of our latest device drivers. This update includes support for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 Operating Systems for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, as well as some minor bug fixes.

To get started using the drivers:

  1.     Download P&E Hardware Interface Drivers 10
  2.     Run the file drivers_10_install.exe. If you have an older version of our drivers installed, the setup will automatically perform the update.

NOTE: The latest drivers no longer include support for Windows 98 and ME, but P&E will continue to make our older drivers available. Support for PCI devices (e.g., BDM Lightning) and Parallel port devices has been removed for Windows Vista and later, as well as all 64-bit operating systems.

P&E drivers allow P&E applications to communicate with P&E hardware via the parallel port, PCI bus, Ethernet, Serial, and USB.

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.
