The Renesas Gang Programmer -Octoprog C (RL78/R8C) features include:
The Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C is an RL78/R8C Family device programmer that can program upto eight identical devices at the same time.The Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C connects to a host PC using USB and provides flexible programming options that allow theuser to fully customize the process. The Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C provides an economical andreliable means of programming a wide range of RL78/R8C microcontroller units (MCUs). It is designed with a versatile hardware platformto support programming of different MCUs. The Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C can be used to program eight devices simultaneously by copying data held in aninternalflash memory to the MCUs? internal memory. Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C provides an RS232 communication port for interfacing and automating the production programming process. Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C works only with Crypto V300 or above software revisions
CRYPTO software allows user to encrypt and download the hex-file from PC to Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C using USB connection. Only if the encryption key in programmer and key used for hex-file encryption matches code will be successfully programmed. This help the user to share hex-file (encrypted) with EMS provider as the encrypted hex file can be used only with the respective programmer. In addition to this CRYPTO allows user to set number of targets to be programmed, once target count is reached programmer will wipe out its internal memory and won?t program any further targets. Crypto V300 Also displays the current target and files loaded on the connected Renesas Gang programmer-Octoprog C. User also can set a file ID which is needed in the AT command for initiation of programming, File ID helps to confirm the compatibility of required hex code on the programmer.
