PEmicro offers CYCLONE and CYCLONE FX production programmers. All of our Cyclones are full-featured tools for in-circuit flash programming, debug, and test. CYCLONE FX programmers add features like:

  • Blazing programming speed saves you valuable time.
  • Huge internal memory makes managing images simple.
  • Enhanced security features help lock down your IP.
  • An SD port gives you the convenience of expandable memory.
  • Expansion ports enable unique, valuable plug-ins such as a barcode scanner for programming.

Which of these is right for your project? See the table below for a detailed feature comparison between Cyclone and Cyclone FX.
