In this work, we focus on cyclic codes over the ring F2+uF 2+vF2+uvF2, which is not a finite chain ring. We use ideas from group rings and works of AbuAlrub in (Des Codes Crypt 42:273-287, 2007) to characterize the ring (F2+uF2+vF 2+uvF2)/(xn-1) and cyclic codes of odd length. Some good binary codes are obtained as the images of cyclic codes over F 2+uF2+vF2+uvF2 under two Gray maps that are defined. We also characterize the binary images of cyclic codes over F2+uF2+vF2+uvF2 in general.
