Error 18 during script - Cyclone Max using Kinetis KE04

  • Hello,

    I recently received a Cyclone Max and I'm trying to configure it. I'm using a Kinetis KE04Z8M4 for an application. To program and debug it I use a Multilink Universal and don't have any trouble.
    I stared using the Cyclone Image creation utility. As soon as I try to create the image, I get error 18:

    This is my configuration:

    Is there something wrong in the configuration?

    One more thing, I'm trying to create the image and then upload it to the cyclone max. Does my microcontroller has to be connected to do this? Or can I do it without it? I'm new to this and I can't find any information on it.

    Thank you and regards.


  • Greetings,

    From just the screenshots, I cannot find anything wrong. I highly suggest you try to use the PROG for ACMP found in the cyclone max software package to see if the cyclone max with your setup actually works. It is possible your cyclone max is faulty in some way. Let me know what you find and it will help me in diagnosing the issue.

    No, you do not need a target connected to the cyclone to load an image. The cyclones are normally configured by an engineer and then taken out to the field or production line where the target device is programmed.

    • Thank you for your reply,

      So now I'm trying to use the PROGACMP as you suggested but I can't manage to make a connection to target. I connected the microcontroller with standard pin configuration on port E but couldn't communicate.

      I was reading on a forum that pin 7 and pin 13 must be shorted for it to work, is this information correct?

      I tried it and it worked, it got me onto the next window. I haven't made any testing yet, but I just wanted to make sure I'm supposed to short those pins.

    • Hello,

      Just a little update. I put the pins 7 and 13 shorted, and managed to program the microcontroller with the PROGACMP.
