Support for this product is limited to customers who have already adopted these products. If adopting new products, please consider the successor.

 

Overview

The PG-FP5 installed in a system is a tool for erasing, programming, and verifying programs on Renesas MCUs with on-chip flash memory.

Topics

The PG-FP5 has been discontinued. The acceptance of final orders was in May 2018. If adopting new products, please consider the successor, the PG-FP6.
[PG-FP6] Higher productivity and security than its predecessor, PG-FP5 >>

 

Successor

PG-FP6

 

Note: the PG-FP6 does not support V850 and 78K with dual power supply flash memory, which assume mass production with mask ROM. Use programmers produced by partners for programming of the V850 and 78K with dual power supply flash memory. Refer to Function and performance comparisons between PG-FP6 and PG-FP5 >>

PG-FP5 How to Find the Version Number

Programming GUI, Firmware and FPGA for PG-FP5

To check the version number, follow these steps:

Step1. PG-FP5 Startup

After the cables are connected, press the POWER button on the PG-FP5.

Step2. Startup of Programming GUI

Click the Start menu, "All Programs", point to "Renesas Electronics Utilities", "Programming Tools", and then select "PG-FP5 Vx.xx" of "PG-FP5 Vx.xx" to start the Programming GUI. When communication is established and the programming GUI is correctly started, the main window will be opened.

Step3. Check the Version Numbers of the Programming GUI, Firmware and FPGA with "Reset Command" or "Main Window", as Shown Below:

  • Programming GUI
    • - Open the Help menu and click the About FP5 command.
    • The version number of Programming GUI is displayed in the About FP5 dialog box.
    • or
    • - Refer to the programming parameter window on the right of the main window. The version number of Programming GUI is shown at the FP5_GUI row in the Programmer box of the programming parameter window.
  • Firmware
    • - Open the Programmer menu and click the Reset command.
    • The version number of Firmware is displayed in the action log window.
    • or
    • - Refer to the programming parameter window on the right of the main window. The version number of Firmware is shown at the Firmware row in the Programmer box of the programming parameter window.
  • FPGA
    • - Open the Programmer menu and click the Reset command. The version number of FPGA is displayed in the action log window.
