This blog post walks through the setup to be able to use cloud-connected programming jobs with Cyclone Programmers.
In order to create a cloud connected programming job, the user's local software needs to be connected to their Virtual Factory in PEcloud. This allows job information, and optionally the job binary, to be uploaded to the PEcloud during creation.
For a Cyclone to be able to execute the job, the Cyclone needs to be provisioned to the same PEcloud Virtual Factory. This gives the Cyclone access to the Job information. Additionally, if the job binary is delivered through the PEcloud, the Cyclone needs to be pre-loaded with a copy of the PEImageKey used to encrypt the job.
Steps to using cloud-connected programming jobs:
- Link PEmicro Cyclone Software to the user’s PEcloud account (To allow job creation).
- Provision Cyclones to the user’s Virtual Factory in PEcloud (To allow job execution/download).
- Pre-load the user's PEImageKey(s) to the Cyclones (To allow job decryption/execution).
