Security Enhancement against theft of program files and the PG-FP6 main unit

The following three features are added to enhance security against theft of program files and the PG-FP6 main unit.

  • Encryption of program files
  • Saving of encrypted files in the PG-FP6 main unit
  • Simultaneous decryption and writing in the PG-FP6

The program file encryption function can be run by using the encryption utility program (RPE.exe) from the command line. The file is among those installed by the FP6 Terminal installer.

Major Functions

  • Stand-alone programming
  • PC-controlled programming using dedicated GUI (FP6 Terminal)
  • Up to 8 savable programming environments
  • Optimized for production line programming (command control or remote control)
  • Programming a unique code to a designated area of flash memory
  • Function to control PG-FP6 main unit (prohibiting uploading and setup)
  • Encryption of program files

High Compatibility with the Predecessor

Designed with compatibility with the predecessor PG-FP5 in mind for smooth migration.

  • Setup files created with the PG-FP5 can be imported
  • Support of PG-FP5-enabled MCUs
    (For the V850 and 78K family, only MCUs with single-power-supply flash memory is supported.)
  • The same specifications of control buttons, message display, and status LEDs
  • The same specification of connector layout
  • Connectable to boards designed by using the PG-FP5
  • Pursuing programming GUI compatibility
