USB BDM Multilink Cable (Discontinued)

USB BDM Interface cable for the 68HC(S)12(X) and 68HCS08 and 68RS08 and ColdFire V1

Product Details

 The USB-ML-12 (USB BDM Multilink) has been replaced with the Multilink Universal interface. Most software products will support the Multilink Universal transparently. 

Please visit the Legacy Hardware Transition Support Page for more information.

Older software may need to be patched so that it will natively work with the latest Cyclones and Universal Multilinks. See FAQ #211.

 Other compatible interfaces include the high-speed Multilink Universal FX, Cyclone LC programmer, and Cyclone FX programmer

Multilink Trade-In Program

PEmicro offers a trade-in program for older Multilinks. If you have a USB BDM Multilink Cable, you can trade it in for a discount towards our Multilink Universal or Multilink Universal FX. Please visit our Multilink Trade-In Program page for more information.

Version 12.7 Adds support for 64 bit PEmicro applications. Also it includes the atom fix which affects very select users. Installs PEmicro drivers to allow applications to communicate with PEmicro hardware. Please note that not all hardware may be supported for your OS. This does not include the application level support which comes with the different products. Administrator privilege is now required. Released 11/30/2017.
My Legacy Codewarrior, my Eclipse Codewarrior 10.2 or higher, or my other 3rd party software with PEmicro support will not detect my PEmicro hardware tool or fails to connect to the target board. What can I do to fix this?
The connection assistant dialog indicates that my Multilink or Cyclone is undetected even though I have connected the hardware to my USB port. What should I do?
