JTAG Debuggers:

P & E micro

We have partnered with P&E Microcomputer Systems to sell and support their Hardware and Software tools.P&E Microcomputer Systems is an industry trendsetter in hardware and software development tools for Freescale microcontrollers. P&E takes pride in its committment to providing professional, low-cost development tools and prompt, knowledgeable customer support.


1.USB Multilink Universal:

P&E's USB Multilink Universal is an all-in-one development interface which allows a PC access to the Background Debug Mode (BDM) or JTAG interface on Freescale HCS08, HC(S)12(X), S12Z, RS08, ColdFire V1/+V1, ColdFire V2-4, Qorivva 55xx/56xx, and Kinetis ARM MCUs. It connects between a USB port on a Windows machine and the standard debug connector on the target. The Freescale MCUs are supported via the multiple headers located on the USB Multilink Universal. Ribbon cables suitable for a variety of architectures are included.

The USB ML Universal works with P&E Microcomputer System's in-circuit debuggers and flash programmers to allow debug and flash programming of the target processor. For many of the supported processors, P&E has a set of interface libraries allowing the user to write their own Windows based application which interacts with P&E's debug interface. IAR, Cosmic, Codesourcery, Keil, Atollic, and CodeWarrior software all support the use of P&E's USB Multilink Universal to develop and debug with Freescale's Kinetis ARM devices.

2.USB Multilink Universal Fx:

P&E's USB Multilink Universal Fx is a high-speed, all-in-one development interface which allows a PC access to the Background Debug Mode (BDM) or JTAG interface on many different Freescale MCU architectures. HC16, 683xx,Power 5xx and 8xx are the extra processors this model supports when compared to USB ML Universal.

3.Cyclone Universal/Fx:

The Cyclone series of programmers are stand alone and can program target processors independently of a PC. Connecting to a PC allows the Cyclone programmers to be automatically controlled and also allows configuration of the Cyclone (such as adding more programming images). The Cyclone connects to the PC via USB, Ethernet, or Serial connections and all three cables are provided. For Ethernet connectivity, the Cyclone programmers can either be assigned a fixed IP or can dynamically acquire one via DHCP.

In addition to manual launch via the start button, stand-alone programming can be automatically controlled from a PC using the included Cyclone Control Suite. The goal is to allow full control of one or more Cyclones from the PC, either from within a GUI, a custom application, or from the command-line. This includes launching programming, recovering results, managing images resident on a Cyclone, adding unique programming data for each target, and more. All of these things are possible in an automated way without an operator.

4.Cyclone Max:

P&E Microcomputer Systems's Cyclone MAX is an extremely flexible tool designed for in-circuit flash programming, debugging, and testing of Freescale ColdFire V2/V3/V4, Power MPC5xx/8xx, Qorivva MPC55xx/56xx, Kinetis ARM processor-based MCUs (includes L-Series), DSC (MC56F80xx, MC56F82xx, MC56F83xx, and MC56F84xx), and MAC7xxx ARM processor-based MCUs.

NEW!The Cyclone MAX now includes full support for Freescale's Kinetis L-Series devices, including SWD debug. The unit ships with our Cyclone MAX JTAG-SWD Adapter which includes mini-10 and mini-20-pin ribbon cables. By connecting to a simple BDM header on the target, the Cyclone MAX can program, test, or debug internal memory on a Freescale processor or external flash connected to the processor's address/data bus. The processor or memory device can be mounted on the final printed circuit board before programming.
