Product Details


The Cyclone MAX programmer has been discontinued. PEmicro's current generation Cyclone LC and Cyclone FX programmers are the official replacement parts. Please visit the Legacy Hardware Transition Support Page for more information. 

Within each type there are two models of Cyclone, one that supports ARM devices, and one that supports ARM devices plus many NXP 8/16/32 bit architectures. 

Note: PEmicro offers a trade-in program for older Cyclones. If you have a Cyclone MAX or Cyclone PRO you can trade it in for a discount towards our current generation of Cyclone programmers. Please visit our Cyclone Trade-In Program page for more information.
