I have a professional license of CodeWarrior for HCS12 and always program my device with PE-Micro Cable from within the CW IDE. Now, the product has to be shipped to the customer with a possible option of making firmware updates with PE-Micro cable only. Is there a utility that the customer can use to download the binary files to the target flash? or must we buy a Basic CW license for the customer for only download purpose?
Personally I would be terrified at the thought of the customer using a debugger. There is a big potential for mess-up. Also, with all the copy-cats out there, don't you want to use the secure mechanism of the HCS12? This won't be possible through the debugger.
You probably don't want your customers to fiddle with the debugger or even PE PROG12Z. You also don't want to use the debugger for production programming, since it is terribly slow when it comes to downloads.
The best way do solve this is to buy a PE Cyclone for your customer, then send them the .SAP file containing the program. The files can be easily downloaded into the Cyclone and once they are downloaded, you don't need a PC attached to do the programming.
