Production Programming - Automated Control

For automated production lines where a host computer is used to control one or many programming stations, PEmicro provides the Cyclone Control Suite with our current-generation Cyclone programmers. The Cyclone Control Suite consists of three parts - a Console, GUI, and SDK - which allow the user 3 distinct options when automating Cyclone control from a host PC.
Cyclone Control GUI This is an interactive GUI based application which provides an easy way to control Cyclones and manage images resident in the Cyclones. Given its graphical nature, it is very easy to explore Cyclone Control Suite capabilities to intuitively control or interact with a Cyclone.
Cyclone Control Console a powerful command-line application can be launched from a script, a command-line, or another application and allows control of one or more Cyclones simultaneously. The command-line application displays comprehensive status messages and also returns an error code which can be recovered from the calling application.
Cyclone Control SDK A Software Development Kit with a comprehensive API allowing multiple Cyclones to be managed simultaneously from a user developed custom application that loads the provided Cyclone Control DLL. The DLL can be loaded from many programming languages that are able to load a DLL (C, Delphi, C#, Java, Python, etc) as well as environments such as Labview. Examples and interface code are provided in C and Delphi.

The Cyclone Control Suite allows a host computer to control the programming process, recover result and status information, provide dynamic data to be added to the programming image, and to change/verify an image in the Cyclone programmer.

Serial numbers and other dynamic data can be programmed in addition to the programming image. Serial numbers can be automatically provided for within the programming image or can be provided.

If the user has access to the advanced features, many Cyclones may be simultaneously controlled at the same regardless of the type of processor they are programming.

Gang Programming with Cyclone Programmers

PEmicro’s gang programming solution is to control many Cyclone programmers simultaneously via the Cyclone Control Suite. A mix of programming images, targets, and data can be simultaneously programmed into many devices while maintaining a high level of performance because each Cyclone is itself an independently operating programmer.

The Cyclone Control Suite can be used to perform gang programming via its Console or SDK components. Learn much more about how to Gang Program using Cyclones in our Expert's Corner.
