PEmicro's Cyclone Programmers

Our Cyclones are versatile production programmers that can be fully automated or used in stand-alone mode.. PEmicro offers both standard Cyclone LC programmers and faster, more fully-featured Cyclone FX programmers. At each level, customers can choose between support for ARM devices only, or ARM plus many NXP & STMicroelectronics 8-/16-/32-bit devices, which represents an incredibly wide arrray of device support. Cyclone users can also take advantage of ProCryption Security which leverages RSA/AES image encryption to help keep valuable IP safe.

Our support center hosts the latest drivers for PEmicro hardware interfaces.

Cyclone LC Programmers

PEmicro's Cyclone LC programmers are full-featured, next-generation Cyclones that can perform in-circuit flash programming, debug, and test. They include these great features:

  • Extensive Device Support
  • Multiple Communications Interfaces (USB, Ethernet, Serial)
  • Generous On-Board Storage
  • Power Switching
  • Multiple Image Support
  • Extended Security Features
  • Touchscreen LCD Display
  • Serial Number Programming
  • Cyclone Control Suite allows basic automation and control of a single Cyclone
  • Optional advanced feature licences available (Advanced Automation, ProCryption Security, external SDHC memory)

Cyclone FX Programmers

PEmicro's Cyclone FX programmers are our flagship in-circuit flash programming, debug, and test solutions, which add an array of speed, security, storage, and other enhancements. See why the Cyclone FX is our premier solution:

  • Includes all capabilities of Cyclone LC, plus many powerful, advanced features
  • Blazingly fast programming speed saves you valuable time.
  • Huge internal memory makes managing images simple.
  • ProCryption Security features (RSA/AES image encryption, image restrictions) help lock down your IP.
  • An SDHC port gives you the convenience of expandable memory.
  • Expansion ports enable unique, valuable plug-ins such as a barcode scanner for programming.
  • Advanced Cyclone Control Suite allows automation and control of multiple Cyclones. dynamic data, remote display/control, and more.

Automation & Control: Cyclone Control Suite

PEmicro's Cyclone Control Suite allows developers to automate the production programming process using PEmicro's Cyclones. It is included with our latest-generation Cyclone LC and Cyclone FX programmers. The suite includes 3 components which each offer the user a different method of control & automation:

Older Cyclone Programmers

PEmicro offers a few older models of Cyclones.

The Cyclone MAX, Cyclone PRO, and Cyclone for STMicro have been discontinued. The models are all part of PEmicro's Cyclone Trade-In Program and can be traded in to reduce the cost of purchasing PEmicro's current generation of Cyclone programmers.

The Cyclone for Renesas provides support for several Renesas device families.
