News release: Renesas Flash Programmer V3.09.01. -the software tool for programming flash memory-
[Upgrade to Revision] Renesas Flash Programmer V3.09.01 (PDF | English, 日本語)

 

Features

  • A simple GUI makes operations easy, even for first-time developers
  • PC-controlled programming via the E2 emulator, E2 emulator Lite, E20 emulator, Segger J-Link debug probes, a serial or USB connection
  • Interoperation with other software.
    • The efficiency of work can be improved by, for example, writing data to many boards consecutively and retaining logs of the written data in files.
  • Batch processing
    • The sequence of operations equivalent to those from starting the GUI to specifying a project and pressing the start button can be repeated easily from the Windows command line without actually starting the GUI (Command-line options). This is very useful for programming large quantities in mass production.
  • Programming a unique code to a designated area of flash memory
  • Enhanced security against theft through the encryption of program files [Learn More]
  • Easier creation of projects (compared with V2) [Learn More]
    • Easy selection of type names. No need to select detailed type names for products of the RL78 family.
    • Easy setting of mode pins for RX family products.
  • Improvements in processing speed (compared with V2)
    • The programming time has been shortened by approximately 10 percent.
    • In the case of the RL78 family, programming times have been shortened by up to 50 percent.(These data were gathered under specific conditions, and we do not guarantee a specific increase in speed.)

Functions

  • Supported file formats for programming: Intel HEX for HEX and HCUHEX files, Motorola S for HEX and HCUHEX files, and RPI for RPI file
  • Check sum of program files
  • Blank check, erase, writing, verification, read-out, security setting, checksum, autoprocedure, setup and acquisition of flash options
  • Sequential execution of multiple commands (for erasure, programming, verification, etc.)
  • Multiple files for programming selectable simultaneously
 

Enhanced security against theft through the encryption of program files

The new function for encrypting program files enhances security against theft.
You can run this function by using the encryption utility program (RPE.exe) from the command line. The file is among those installed by the Renesas Flash Programmer installer.

Note:

  1. For examples of circuits for use in programming via serial ports, see the List of MCUs supported by Renesas Flash Programmer V3 (PDF | English, 日本語) to check the types of serial ports available in the MCU you are using. To find examples for use with types A, B, and C, refer to Renesas Flash Programmer Sample Circuit for Programming by Using a PC's Serial Port. To find examples for use with type D, on the other hand, refer to RL78 Debugging Functions Using the Serial Port (Application Note).
  2. For examples of circuits for use in programming by using the E2, E2 emulator Lite, or E20, see the user’s manuals for the individual emulators.
  3. For examples of circuits for programming via the USB, refer to the hardware manual for the MCU you are using.

Information on the discontinuation of E1 emulator production and on its successor products

We have already discontinued production of the E1 emulator due to components of the product having reached their EOL (end of life, i.e. end of production). Please click on the following link to confirm the details and our successor products.
