PEmicro is changing its licensing for ICD and PKG software, in the same manner as we previously updated PROG software. Effective today, July 23, 2021, the license that activates ICD and PKG will reside on a Cyclone or Multilink debug probe rather than in the software itself. The user who activates the software will choose a Cyclone or Multilink on which to permanently install the license. This allows that hardware interface to work with ICD and PKG on any machine where a supported version of the software is installed.
Note that the ICD and PKG software itself is unchanged, it is only the licensing which has been updated.
Part Number Updates
In order to reflect the new ICD and PKG licensing, we have updated our ICD and PKG part numbers.
Customers with older Multilinks and Cyclones should check whether their hardware supports the new licensing system; please see the hardware compatibility list below. These are the hardware interfaces which support the new licensing:
Multilink Debug Probes
- Multilink ACP - Rev. A or newer
- Multilink Universal - Rev. C or newer
- Multilink Universal FX - Rev. B or newer
- Cyclone LC Universal
- Cyclone LC ARM
- Cyclone FX Universal
- Cyclone FX ARM
Customers whose hardware does not meet these requirements, or those who have any other questions, should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
