Interactive programming packages are provided for all CPU
Or you can link it to a PC, download multiple target programs to it and then disconnect it from the PC. It then becomes a
manually controlled, standalone flash programmer for on chip memory or in the case of the HC12/S12
for on or
off chip memory
Or it can be driven by a PC via the Ethernet, USB or Serial port
with automated commands either using command line instructions or
from a C program using the dll included in the package.
With the addition of P&E Windows based Debugger ( works
and C )
it can be used to debug code by providing downloading to memory, access to
it and the registers, as well as having the ability to set breakpoints, run
the CPU at full speed, slowly or in single step mode. Support for the Cyclone Pro is being provided by a number of
leading C compiler manufacturers within their C Debugging environment.
A Software Development Kit is available that allows multiple Cyclones to
be driven by a single CPU for economical operation in large production

All the Cyclones can be upgraded with the following options......
Additional Flash Memory This option provides
2Gbytes of additional memory images implemented using a compact
Flash card (one included). The Cyclone Flash option allows for faster, easier, and more
flexible programming of data whether it is during field updates or
on production runs.
Automated Control Package
These Windows packages include a command line driven application
Cyclone Launch and a set of DLLs providing a range of features of
value when using the Cyclone in production situations :- Basic Edition ----- Free Download ---- Controls
a single Cyclone from a PC via USB or Ethernet allowing one
Programming Image to be held on the Cyclone which does not have to
be downloaded every time so increasing performance. Professional Edition ----- Controls up to 3
Cyclones from a PC via USB or Ethernet, allowing up to 8 Programming
Images, which do not have to be downloaded every time, to be changed
on the fly and dynamic data such as serial numbers to manipulated
from the PC. Supported devices can be programmed in parallel, even
if they are different devices with different data.
Enterprise Edition ----- As for the Pro version but
unlimited numbers of Cyclones may be controlled from a single PC,
More than 8 images can exist on the Cyclones and Licences for 5 end
user PCs are included. Also provided is a full description of
the RS232 and Ethernet command Protocols so that non Windows users
can implement similar functionality.
