Cyclone PRO

  • Hi,
    I'm analyzing some programmer alternatives for my RS08 and found this Cyclone PRO. My doubt is: do I need any other SW or HW, or I only need the Cyclone PRO? For example, do I need to buy some kind of licence or special software to program my RS08 microcontrollers?

    Cheers,
    Bruno

    Hi Bruno,

    If you just need to program the RS08, then you only need the basic $499 Cyclone Pro. It comes with the required cables and software. If you want to do some debugging or automate your programming with batch files, then you need to purchase additional software.

    Please describe exactly what you want to accomplish and I will let you know what you need to purchase.

  • Hi brunolalb,

    No, the Cyclone PRO contains all of the necessary software to perform interactive (connected to a PC) and stand-alone (no PC needed, just press START button) programming.

    There is additional software you can purchase if you're interested in automating the programming process, but is not required:

    Johnny and Edison,
    thanks for the replies. I don't need the debugging interface, because I already have a DEMO9RS08LE4 board. I also don't need the automation software, at least not yet.
    I guess all I need is really just the US$499 Cyclone PRO.

    About the programming speed, I'll have to program several parts every day (at least 100 / hour) and my programs are all less than 3KB. Is there an estimative for the programming/veryfing time? (less than a second, between 1 and 3 seconds?)

    Cheers,
    Bruno
