P&E's PROG12Z is Windows®-based flash programming software for NXP® HC(S)12(X) MCUs that communicates with the processor's debug mode using a P&E Multilink hardware interface. This allows you to program/reprogram external HC(S)12(X) flash devices, in-circuit. Compatible Multilink interfaces for HCS12X development include the Multilink Universal and the high-speed Multilink Universal FX. The interface connects the USB port of your PC to a 6-pin debug connector on the target system. The programming software includes P&E's entire library of HC(S)12(X)programming algorithms, and new algorithms are available free of charge.
PROG12Z also includes the command-line version of the programmer software, called CPROG12Z, which allows scripted programming. Together PROG and CPROG are useful for development, production line programming, or field firmware upgrades. For a more full-featured production solution, P&E also offers a stand-alone, in-circuit flash programmer called the Cyclone PRO that is ideal for production programming and field maintenance.
