CS+

Component Update Information

Switch from Evaluation Edition to Commercial Edition

To use a license to upgrade CS+ to the commercial edition, enter the license key printed on a purchased compiler package to CS+ while installing it or after installing the evaluation edition. This lifts the restrictions on functions of the target MCUs, upgrading CS+ to the commercial edition. For details, see manuals:

Upgrading Versions of Compilers

Upgrading of versions of compilers is for a fee and requires a separate license key. If you do not have the license key for a new version, upgrading makes your compiler the free evaluation edition of the new version, even if you have the license key for an old version. You can still use the old version as the commercial edition in such cases.

Users Holding License Keys to the Older CubeSuite Products

Users holding license keys to the older CubeSuite products indicated below are able to use the corresponding commercial editions of CS+.

  • A free upgrade to the commercial edition of CS+ for the RL78 and 78K families is available to users holding a license key for CubeSuite for the 78K family (discontinued product).
  • A free upgrade to the commercial edition of CS+ for the V850 family is available to users holding a license key for CubeSuite for the V850 family (discontinued product).

Change to the Name of the CS+ Integrated Development Environment

The name of CubeSuite+ has been changed to "CS+" with the upgrade to V3.00.00 on October 1, 2014.
>> Tool News: Integrated Development Environment CS+ (formerly CubeSuite+) Revised to V3.00.00 (PDF | English, 日本語)

From now on, we plan to enhance the contents of the integrated development environment as CS+ with the aim of meeting customer meets through increased user friendliness.

Licenses you have already acquired for CubeSuite+ will carry over to CS+. That is, customers who already have licenses can also use them for the product version of CS+.

CS+ for CC and CS+ for CA,CX

We offer two types of CS+, CS+ for CC and CS+ for CA,CX, depending on the compiler in use. From the Windows start menu, please select one of them according to the compiler you are using.
