European tool developer MikroElektronika (MikroE) has launched a standalone version of its Codegrip universal version of its WiFi universal programmer.
UNI Codegrip is a universal programmer and debugger for ARM Cortex-M, RISC-V, PIC, dsPIC, PIC32, and AVR MCU architectures that enables designers to program and debug designs over WiFi as well as USB-C. It has been used for the MikroE hardware-as-a-service operation and in the recent UNI-DS v8 development board.
By bridging differences between various MCUs, UNI CODEGRIP allows a huge number of MCUs from several different MCU vendors to be programmed and debugged. More MCUs are being added, and updates will be free for the product lifetime.
Whilst the USB-C connector interface offers improved performance and reliability, compared to traditionally-used USB Type A/B connectors, wireless connectivity redefines the way the development board can be used.
The WiFi connection allows CODEGRIP can be placed in difficult-to-access locations such as hazardous environments, agricultural establishments or high-rise buildings while still giving full debugging and programming access.
“Replicating a user’s hardware has always been a challenge, but debugging through Wi-Fi enables technical support to directly access user’s hardware,” said Nebojsa Matic, CEO at MikroE.
The graphical user interface (GUI) of the CODEGRIP Suite is clear, intuitive, and easy to learn, providing a very pleasant user experience. The embedded HELP system provides detailed guidelines for every aspect of the CODEGRIP Suite. CODEGRIP comes as a stand-alone device and as an integrated on-board module.
