CAN FD interfaces now
The latest enhancement to the CAN standard is CAN FD
in which the data segment of the CAN message is
transmitted at up to 10 times faster than the 1Mbit rate
of CAN 2.0B.
For details of CAN FD see our
Both single and double
CAN channel USB FD interfaces are now available from Peak.
See our CAN FD page
Also at the Nuremberg exhibition Peak launched some
new modules: An intelligent RS232 module, a GPS
module, a router in DIN rail format and a
PCI/104-Express four Channel optoisolated
A New 2015 version of their 120 page Catalogue of CAN interfaces, Modules
and Software is available but be warned its a
Latest News -- Cyclone
for ARM supports more chips
Our low cost production FLASH
programmer will now program the
ATMEL SAMxxx, STM32, NXP (M0, M3,
M4), Freescale Kinetis (all),
S32, TI-(Stellaris - LM3S, LM4F),
Infineon XMC4xxx, Silicon Labs EFM32,
SiM3, Cypress' PSoC® 4, Toshiba's TX00/TX03/TX04 as
well as a wide range of SPI flash memories.

Embedded CPU debug
This newsletter highlights Freescales Kinetis family
of low cost Arm Cortex based microcontroller chips and
the tool chains available to support development
of code for them. There are over 600 chips in the
range whose smallest device is a 32 pin package
selling at < $1 yet it has 32KB of on chip flash.
P&E tools support a wide range of different development
routes from the most popular commercial compilers to
free GCC and GDB environments. With Flash memory
programmers available for low and high volume use also

On Chip Debugging
This On-Chip-Debugging cable supports most Freescale
chips and with suitable software can be used for Flash
Programming and Debugging embedded target systems. It
works with JTAG, SWD and BDM On-Chip-Debugging
If you are unfamiliar with the use of "On-Chip-Debugging" we have a
It support these Freescale
architectures:- Kinetis (JTAG and SWD), ColdFire V1, +V1 and
V2 - 4 , Qorivva MPC5xxx, HC(S)12(X), S12Z, HCS08, RS08, 683xx/CPU32,
HC16, DSC, MPC5xx/8xx and Power Architecture® PX series
And includes ribbon cables for all supported
Fast, hassle-free USB 2.0 communications
Draw their power directly from the USB
port – no external power supply needed
Multi-voltage support for targets ranging
from 1.6 to 5.25 Volts
Auto-frequency detection for HC(S)12(X), HCS08
+ trimming capabilities for HCS08 devices.
Generates programming voltage on RESET line for RS08
For more details.
Aside from supporting a wider
range of chips a major attraction of the Universal FX is
that for Synchronous architectures such
as the Kinetis, Qorivva, Coldfire V2-V4, 683xx, HC16, Power
Architecture PX Series and the DSC the communications can run at 4 to 10
times faster than the older Multilink interfaces.
BDI3000 now adds on-chip debugging
support for the QorIQ™ T4240 (12 physical cores and 24
virtual cores) as well as the 64-bit
single- and dual-core P3041, P5010/20/21/40 communications
processors from Freescale.
For the ARM CORTEX it supports........
-A8 such as
-M3 such as the STM32 and
Luminary Stellaris families
-M4 such as the Freescale
-As well as A5,A7,A8,A9,A15 M0,
M3,M4 and R4
Now also supports the
AppliedMicro's new X-Gene™ processor, the world’s
first ARMv8 64-bit Server on a Chip Solution

Do you need to quickly become knowledgeable about a CPU
family or Embedded USB, CAN or TCP/IP or On-Chip
If so we
have prepared a series of short Technology Tasters to
get you up to speed with the Micros, Standards and jargon.
We hope you will find them informative.
For each Microprocessor chip family (over
are listed) our Supported Chips Directory shows all the
software and hardware available for developing
applications for that family.
Price is always part of any engineering decision so we have
always tried to publish prices along with our technical literature.
Those items which are normally supplied from stock have their
price held on our web shop - you can move back and forward to
look at technical information without loosing the contents of
your shopping basket. The
prices shown on the web shop are for cash with order purchase within
the UK for a wide range of products that are normally available
for same/next day ship following day delivery or at worst on a 5
to 10 day turnaround and
the web site prices do not include VAT (20%) or shipping.
Prices shown on the web site that are sourced from companies in
the EU and US may regrettably be out of date given the fast moving
exchange rate variations of the current economic climate - call
for up to date prices.
Prices for international purchases are essentially the same but additional costs must be covered and the paperwork
is more complex. Follow this link for details of
Purchase conditions. The Universal Currency Converter™ comes to you by kind permission of those nice people at Xenon Laboratories. It is supplied as a guide to exchange rates and neither Xenon nor Computer Solutions make any guarantees as to it's accuracy.
Computer Solutions Ltd or COMSOL for short has been in business for
over 35 years selling embedded development tools and working on consultancy projects. During this time our consultancy activities have ranged from designing true single chip applications to
one system which has over 7,000 linked microprocessors (and that
was before the days of the internet).
We like a technical challenge and many of the products described on this site have come onto our books as the result of responding to a clients need. So if you don’t see the answer to your embedded design problem on the site, drop us an email or give us a call and we will try to find you the tool you are looking for.
