BOSTON – April 20, 2015 - P&E Microcomputer Systems announced the release of Version 2.08 of its GDB Server for Kinetis® devices. The P&E GDB Server is available at no cost as an Eclipse plug-in or Windows GUI application. The latest version supports Windows 7/8 as well as Ubuntu Linux 14.04 and RHEL/CentOS 7.0.

Version 2.08 adds the following features:

  • Preserve memory ranges across an erase. Users can prevent parts of memory from being erased during the programming process.
  • Trim Kinetis devices during programming. We choose a default center frequency which can be changed in the plug-ins dialogs. This allows the internal reference frequency to be accurate on your hardware.
  • EEPROM partitioning capability during flash programming. Allows users, on certain devices, to set aside some flash memory for use as a pseudo-eeprom.
  • JTAG daisy chain support. Allows users to communicate with multiple JTAG devices on the same bus.
  • Attach to a running part during debug session. Launches the client in a way that does not disturb the state of the target device.

BOSTON – August 27, 2014 - P&E Microcomputer Systems announced the addition of support for Freescale's MPC5xx/8xx devices devices to its high-speed Multilink Universal FX development interface. This addition enhances the all-in-one capabilities of the Multilink Universal FX - P&E's flagship Multilink interface - and solidifies P&E's future support for Freescale's MPC5xx/8xx architecture.

Multilink Universal FX users may download the updated Technical Summary (v.1.03) from P&E's support center.






BOSTON – December. 23, 2013 - P&E Microcomputer Systems, Inc. a leading manufacturer of third-party tools for Freescale microprocessors, announced the release of a new UNIT Hardware Interface Library: UNITDSC, for Freescale's DSC processors. P&E's UNIT libraries consist of routines that interact with and control P&E's hardware interfaces. This allows users to create custom run-control and test applications. Standard UNIT licenses allow the applications to be used on up to 5 computers. P&E also offers Distributable versions of its UNIT software which can be used on an unlimited number of computers.

UNITDSC can be used to control Freescale's DSC devices with P&E's Multilink Universal and high-speed Multilink Universal FX development interfaces, as well as the Cyclone MAX production programmer.






BOSTON – December 16, 2013 - P&E Microcomputer Systems announced the release of combined MSD and DEBUG OpenSDA firmware applications. The latest collection of OpenSDA applications supports MSD, DEBUG and CDC virtual serial functionality without requiring one to switch back and forth between MSD and DEBUG applications. The latest OpenSDA collection includes applications for all Freescale Freedom and Tower OpenSDA-based evaluation platforms and can be used under Windows® 8.x/7/XP as well as Linux® and Mac OS® operating systems.

The OpenSDA hardware interface is a perfect way to evaluate powerful Freescale Kinetis® microprocessors and provide for a smooth transition to P&E's Multilink Universal, Multilink Universal FX, Tracelink, and Cyclone MAX standalone debugging and manufacturing interfaces. OpenSDA and P&E hardware interfaces are supported under Codewarrior, P&E, KEIL, IAR, Cosmic, Atollic, and Green Hills Software development environments along with others.

BOSTON – July 2, 2013 - P&E Microcomputer Systems has released its new PROGDSC flash programming software. PROGDSC is Windows-based in-circuit flash programming software for Freescale's DSC devices, and includes the CPROGDSC command-line programmer for scripted automated programming. Those who wish to use the software may download the full version from a link on the product page, where they will also find a link for requesting a license for the software free of charge.

PROGDSC communicates with target devices through one of P&E's compatible hardware interfaces. The Multilink Universal and high-speed Multilink Universal FX are development interfaces, while the Cyclone MAX is one of P&E's flagship Cyclone stand-alone production programmers: it's made to withstand the rigors of a production environment, can be used manually or fully automated, and is the ideal solution when programming speed is crucial. 






BOSTON – December. 3, 2012 - Atollic® announced support for P&E Microcomputer Systems' Multilink Universal and high-speed Multilink Universal FX interfaces in the newly released version of their TrueSTUDIO® development environment. TrueSTUDIO, a premier C/C++ development tool for 32-bit microcontrollers including Freescale's Kinetis® devices, now works seamlessly with P&E's popular all-in-one interfaces and Freescale's OpenSDA interfaces.

The Multilink Universal is a popular, value-oriented debug interface that works with all Kinetis devices, including the new L-Series, as well as many other Freescale architectures. The Multilink Universal FX adds high-speed communications and other enhancements, including the ability to supply power to the target. OpenSDA is a low-cost debug/programming interface embedded in certain Freescale evaluation boards.

BOSTON – November. 21, 2012 - P&E Microcomputer Systems announced the addition of the GDB Server for Kinetis® devices to its industry-leading roster of tools for Freescale devices. P&E's support for Freescale's Kinetis microcontrollers now includes the ability to use GNU GDB tools with P&E's lineup of Kinetis-compatible hardware interfaces. These include the all-in-one Multilink Universal development interface and its high-speed counterpart, the Multilink Universal FX, as well as the production-ready Cyclone MAX automated programmer and debug interface. The GDB Server for Kinetis devices also supports the OpenSDA and OSJTAG embedded debug circuitry incorporated into many of Freescale's Tower and Freedom development boards.

Users are invited to read more information and download a trial version of P&E's GDB Server for Kinetis devices.






 

BOSTON – Mar. 15, 2012 - P&E Microcomputer Systems Inc., a leading developer of third-party tools for Freescale microcontrollers, has announced the addition of support for Freescale DSCs (digital-signal controllers) to key P&E development and production programming interfaces. Freescale DSCs are designed to blend processing power with specific, optimized control loop capabilities. P&E's DSC-compatible products represent a range of feature sets and price points in order to accommodate projects of any scope and budget.

P&E's Cyclone MAX, a flagship Automated Programmer and Debug Interface that is designed to handle a variety of tasks, including low and high volume programming in demanding production environments, now offers support for the following Freescale DSC families: MC56F80xx, 56F82xx, MC56F83xx, and MC56F84xxx. In addition, the new Cyclone MAX firmware (v.7.70) streamlines the unit's LCD display and provides more user selected and customized information. 

The USB Multilink Universal and the high-speed USB Multilink Universal FX also support Freescale's MC56F80xx, 56F82xx, MC56F83xx, and MC56F84xxx DSC families as part of an "all-in-one" approach that includes support for many other Freescale MCU architectures. The USB Multilink Universal is P&E's entry-level all-in-one development interface, and the USB Multilink Universal FX features up to 10x faster download speed and the ability to supply target power, while remaining an excellent overall value.

All three of these DSC-compatible interfaces are natively supported by Freescale's Codewarrior 10.2. More information on the Cyclone MAX, USB Multilink Universal, USB Multilink Universal FX, and compatible software is available at www.pemicro.com.
