The USB Multilink Universal FX
greatly simplify the task of
programming and debugging embedded target systems. They allow a PC to communicate
with a target processor through a high-speed USB interface at the PC and a
debug port at the micro. The PC
can then control the microprocessor via the debug port of the target.
If you are unfamiliar with the use of "On-Chip-Debugging" we have a
It supports the following NXP/Freescale
683xx / CPU32, HC16, Kinetis (JTAG and SWD), HCS08, RS08, HC(S)12(X), S12Z, ColdFire V1, +V1 and
V2 - 4 , Qorivva MPC5xxx, DSC, MPC5xx/8xx and Power Architecture® PX series
And have these Features
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
Target Frequency: 16Khz-50Mhz (applies to HCS08, RS08,
CFV1, S12Z, or HCS12X only)
Target Auto-frequency detection for HC(S)12(X,Z), HCS08
+ trimming capabilities for HCS08 devices.
Generates programming voltage on RESET line for RS08
Includes ribbon cables for all supported
For Synchronous architectures such
as the 683xx, HC16, Kinetis, Qorivva, Coldfire V2-V4, Power
Architecture PX Series and the DSC the communications can run at 4 to 10
times faster than the older Multilink interfaces.
Also it can provide 200 mA power to target MCU
and it provides I/O line clamping for added protection
Development Software support
By adding the Flash
Programming Software these units can program Flash memory and EEPROMs on the chip or attached to it.
They are suitable for both development and small
As these chips are no longer being
actively developed by Freescale call COMSOL to discuss interfacing with any
development software you may wish to use.
P&E can provide...
A simple command line assembler adequate for many small applications ( no
linker but the source file can have multiple includes). It provides
macros and conditional assembly.
A windows package that via the cable provides all the services of a
debugger providing as it does access to the contents of variables and
registers along with control of the CPU's execution via Breakpoints and Run
A set of C library calls that provide an API for using the BDM interface.
Ideal for those who need to write their own PC based test or diagnostics
programs. The standard version includes a license for 5 units.
The distribution version provides unlimited production of applications.
68HC16 Flash Programming Software
An interactive flash programming software package that allows you to program/reprogram both internal and external flash devices in-circuit, via
a P&E interface cable. Perfect for development, production line programming, or field firmware upgrades.
P&Es products contains our entire library of setup files for
this processor, and includes both interactive and command-line versions for use in development and production.
