PEmicro's Multilink Universal (part# USB-ML-UNIVERSAL) recently changed from Rev D. to Rev. E. As part of this update, Multilink Universal Rev. E or later will require an adapter when communicating with NXP's RS08 devices.
The RS08 connection otherwise remains the same, and uses the same 6-pin pinout described in the Multilink Universal technical summary.
RS08 Adapter Required for Multilink Universal Rev. E
As shown in the figure above, the RS08 adapter (part# ML-MLFX-RS08-ADPT) connects to the 16-pin header (Port E) of the Multink Universal. The adapter then offers a 6-pin header for connection to the target, via ribbon cable.
The part number and revision of the Multilink are located on the underside label of the Multilnk.
Note that PEmicro expects the upcoming Revision of the high-speed Multilink Universal FX to require the same adapter.
Multilink users with questions regarding the adapter can contact PEmicro.
