PEmicro provides powerful and easy-to-use tools for development, debug, and production programming of NXP devices. Our tools range from our Multilink and advanced Multilink FX debug probes all the way up to Cyclone production programmers, and the high-performance fully-loaded Cyclone FX production programmers.

PEmicro tools are deeply integrated into NXP tools such as MCUXpresso so we can offer powerful debug features like View Variables While Code is Running, Real-Time SWO Debug and Power Measurement, and Exception Catching.


Production Programming

PEmicro's Cyclone production programmers are easily configured and are versatile in their setup and launch and may be manually controlled or easily automated. The FX adds high-speed performance, extensive capabilities for advanced automation and advanced programming controls.

Extremely Fast Programming Speeds

PEmicro's Cyclone FX programmer provides extremely high-speed and robust debug communications rates for NXP' ARM® Cortex® devices. With debug shift speeds reaching 75 Mbits/s, the download and verification rates achieved for almost every ARM Cortex device, even low-speed Cortex M0 parts, are in the MBytes per second range.

Here are Cyclone FX programming speeds for a sampling of ARM devices:

Cyclone FX: Measured Performance Metrics (ARM-Based Devices)
Device
Flash Programming
Verification
NXP i.MX 1052 (Hyperflash) 1250 KB/s 2241 KB/s
NXP Kinetis K70 (eMMC) 3063 KB/s 3971 KB/s
NXP Kinetis KL25 (Internal) 47 KB/s 3218 KB/s
NXP Kinetis K60 (Internal) 224 KB/s 2957 KB/s
NXP LPC1857 (Internal) 300 KB/s 2379 KB/s
  1. The verification rate for actual byte-by-byte verification is extremely fast. Even for devices where the flash programming rate is limited by the flash architecture, the verification rate that the Cyclone FX achieves results in substantial time savings.
  2. As memory sizes increase and target flash technology improves, the impressive bandwidth advantage that the Cyclone FX has over competitive products will result in ever larger savings on the production line.

Below are Cyclone FX programming speeds for some non-ARM devices:

User Options Programming Support

Some NXP ARM devices include fuses: areas of flash memory dedicated to programming user configuration data. Such areas can include specific bits for programming options, such as a watchdog timer enable, or the bootloader size. Because some writes to such areas can be sensitive or permanent, it is important that the developer is able to write these options correctly the first time and avoid mis-programming adjacent options that they wish to leave untouched.

PEmicro supports User Options programming for several NXP devices through special programming commands that allow the user to create/modifly a User Options file, which can then be specifed as part of programming.



Development & Debug


PEmicro's debug probes offer a high-speed USB interface from the PC to Multilink allows for fast, easy programming and debugging. The FX adds high speed performance as well as the capability to provide power to the target.

Streamlined debugging
PEmicro's debug probes support flash programming, execution control, breakpoints, watch points, stepping, and value inspection.
