PE0003 Universal Interface Card



  • Global Interface for New-generation IC Evaluation Kits
  • Target IC C-BUS Read and Write Operations
  • 32-Bit  Dual core ARM Microprocessor Cortex-M4/Cortex-M0
  • Micro SD Card to store Function Images and bulk data
  • PC GUI and hardware provided
  • Function Image Handling for FirmASIC-based Projects
  • High-speed Real-time Script Execution
  • PC Control/Communications via USB Port
  • Software Configurable GPIO Lines and Indicating LED Bank
  • C Library for fast C development
  • JTAG port for debugging C applications

The PE0003 supersedes the PE0002 and is backward compatible with existing scripts if the PE0003 GUI is downloaded.

The PE0003 Evaluation Kit Interface Card is a global interface system for use with evaluation kits for CML’s new generation ICs, including FirmASIC™ based products. This greatly simplifies the approach to the evaluation and design-in process.

Based around the NXP ARM microprocessor LPC4330 and using a PC GUI, the information generated is formatted, timed and delivered to the target IC via  selected C-BUS serial interfaces or a host port. The supplied control software can be used to perform C-BUS read and write operations, read or write sample data  or run scripting functions.

In the case of FirmASIC™ IC evaluations, the Function Image™ can be loaded onto the CMX{target} device or programmed into serial memory on the {target} card.

Communication with the PE0003 is via high-speed USB 2.0.

The PE0003 provides an environment for C code development and evaluation using NXP’s toolchain, LPCXpresso. A PC based GUI adds an interactive display facility with keyboard entry. Debugging using a low-cost JTAG interface can be managed with or without the GUI. A rich API using a set of proven C libraries can be downloaded from the Knowledge Base tab together with full documentation and a guide to getting started. Numerous practical examples are included.

PE0003 FAQ

Q. Windows 8.x will not allow me to install the PE0003 drivers. How do I fix this?

A. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 will not permit unsigned driver installation by default. To install unsigned drivers requires restarting Windows in Advanced mode and selecting ‘disable driver signature enforcement’. There are many examples of how to do this on the web. The search string “unsigned drivers in windows 8.1” yields many useful results in most search engines.

Pre-Windows 8 operating systems may warn that the driver is unsigned but allow the user to install anyway.
