Ronetix Debuts Firmware for PEEDI JTAG/BDM/SWD Emulator, Flash Programmer

Ronetix announced the availability of the new firmware of its high speed, low cost JTAG/BDM/SWD Emulator and Flash Programmer. The new firmware adds support of debugging and FLASH programming of the Freescale PowerPC MPC5200 and Atmel AVR32 families. Now PEEDI can be used for high speed GNU gdb debugging and Flash Programming of all ARM7, ARM9, ARM11, Cortex-M3, Cortex-A8, XScale, Freescale Nexus enabled PowerPC MPC55XX, MPC83XX, MPC52XX, ColdFire, Blackfin, MIPS32 and AVR32 based CPUs.

Because of its built-in GNU gdb support, PEEDI can be used with any GNU gdb based debugger (like Insight, Eclipse) without any additional software which makes PEEDI host operating system independent.

The built-in Flash Programmer of PEEDI supports programming of over 900 NOR Flash devices and 8-bit and 16-bit NAND Flash devices connected to the CPU via the JTAG interface.

PEEDI supports also the programming of the internal Flash memory of the Atmel AVR32UC3 family.

PEEDI supports several flash profiles, which enables the programming of a complete Linux system at once: U-BOOT, Linux Kernel and JFFS2 root file system.

Among the advantages of PEEDI are:

  • Multi core support – up to 4 cores
  • Built-in support for gdb (remote target via Ethernet)
  • Very high real download speed – up to 1.25 Mbytes/s
  • 5 kHz – 33MHz JTAG/BDM clock using 35cm standard cable
  • Automatic measuring and compensating of delays in the JTAG signals
  • Target Voltage 1.2V – 5V
  • Built-in telnet command line interface
  • Built-in very fast Flash programmer that supports over 900 Flash devices
  • Can be used as a standalone Flash Programmer, up to 15 images can be stored on MMC/SD card, controlled by front panel interface
  • Small robust aluminum case
  • DCC over TCP support

Ronetix supplies complete software toolkits, flash programmers intelligent debug probes and development boards for the ARM7, ARM9, ARM11, Cortex-M3, Cortex-A8, XScale, PowerPC, ColdFire, Blackfin, MIPS32 and AVR32 technology implementations. The Company headquarters are in Vienna, Austria.
