CYCLONE FOR ARM Devices communication problem
Wang E. Jun 30, 2021 at 11:37 PM (23:37 hours)
Staff: Johnny N.

  • Greetings,

    On my hand there is a CYCLONE FOR ARM Devices(maybe manufacturing date in 2007) and I got its manual from yours support yesterday, this is my first time operate this device.

    I give the 6V voltage to SYSTEM POWER, and use a USB cable connects to the device and PC, but the PC popup message "Unrecognized USB device,A USB device connected to the computer wasn't working properly, and Windows couldn't recognize it". Before that I have installed latest cyclone_install.exe and PEDrivers_install.exe from the website download and also restart the Windows System. I changed another PC meet the same problem.

    My purpose is that use PC to control the device automatic burn firmware, but meet the USB can't be recognized problem.

    Would you support me to solve this problem?

    Note: My PC is Win10,64bit
    Thanks!

    • I have found the USB Cable is not normal work, so this problem is solved, thanks!

      • Wang,

        Glad to hear you were able to resolve your issue.

        The next step is to try to program your device manually using the programp software. After you are successful in that, then you can try for automation. Using the Cyclone Image Creation Utility, you have to create and store an image inside the Cyclone.

        After the image is stored, there are several ways you can control the Cyclone to program firmware into your device. You can press the START button. You can also use your own software. We sell a DLL that you can load with your program that has functions to control.

        Let me know if you have any other questions.

        • Dear Johnny,

          Thanks for your kindly response, Next Week I will get a product sample for burning the firmware test through my CYCLONE FOR ARM Devices, if I meet problem, then I will look for your support.


          Thanks!

        • Greetings,

          Meet a problem that SAP can't store into the CYCLONE FOR ARM Devices, original firmware is asdvt1xxx.s24, microcontroller is MK10DN512VLL10 of NXP.

          Configure the software of Cyclone Image Creation Utility Version 8.36.00.00:
          Manufacturer: NXP
          Architecture: ARM Based(Kinetis,LPC,etc.)
          Device: K10DN512M10

          Programming Sequence:
          CM freescale_k10dn512m10_1x32x128k_pflash
          SS asdvt1xxx.s24
          EM Erase Module
          PM Program Module
          VC Verify Checksum

          Communication settings: JTAG Mode
          Shift Frequency in MHz: 5.56 MHz

          Target Power & Voltage settings:
          selected Provide Target Power, Target voltage:3V
          selected Power off target after SAP operations are complete

          Image Description: asdv4_test

          Image Encryption: NO Image Encryption

          Then Click Cyclone Only, pop-up window of Cyclone Control GUI:

          "Port=USB1 Name=Sagittarius" display before pressing Connect button,
          click the connect button, then show below information:
          Name CRC Storage Area Status Encryption
          asdv4_test E4505DC Internal Ready to Store Not Encrypted

          double Click "Ready to store",popup:

          "The ImageKey with description needed to decrypt the specified image is not in the Cyclone. Would you like to browse to the ImageKey file and add it to the Cyclone?"


          Second: Exit Cyclone Image Creation Utility Version 8.36.00.00,
          Third: Open and run Cyclone Control Console, below is information:

          Opening Cyclones ...

          Adding Image F:\asdv4_test.sap to Cyclone Sagittarius
          Error storing image to Cyclone Sagittarius
          Error FFFFFFF7: Lost communication with the specified Cyclone

          Final Result : Error FFF7 : Error Occured.
          ===============================================================================

          Error message: Lost communication with the specified Cyclone

          I don't know how to make the SAP store into the CYCLONE FOR ARM Devices successfully.

          THANKS!

          • Wang,

            The software you're using is slightly outdated and it is for the non-legacy Cyclones. We just rebuilt our software for the legacy Cyclone for ARM. Please uninstall the previous software and give the new software a try.

            http://www.pemicro.com/downloads/download_file.cfm?download_id=570

            Regards,
            Johnny

            • Thank you, Johnny.
              Yesterday used a new Cyclone LC Automated Programmer which just bought recently , it can make SAP into the device and can be burn the firmware successfully.

              Now I know why the old programmer can't be stored SAP, thanks!

              • Wang,

                Does the legacy Cyclone for ARM work with the new software?
                You're welcome and thank you for using our products!

                Regards,
                Johnny

                • Johnny,

                  We have no plan to continue to use the old programmer and busy on new project, so
                  I have not try with the new software.

                  thanks for your good support!
