Universal device programmer with high-speed USB interface
Now available from Computer Solutions, the ALL-11P3 is a universal device programmer with a high-speed USB interface which makes it especially suited to linking with portable PCs.
The unit is powerful enough to perform demanding production tasks in the manufacturing environment and compact enough to use for field engineering work. It currently supports over 12,000 devices, with dual-inline package devices plugging in directly and other packages interfaced via a range of adaptors.
The ALL-11P3 can be used to program virtually any type of device with a programmable memory or configuration including EPROM, EEPROM, FLASH, PLD/CPLD/FPGA, microcontrollers, BPROM and serial PROM. It can also test DRAM SIP/SIMM modules with an optional adaptor.
The programmer consists of a universal base and exchangeable adaptors, and as standard comes with a 40-pin DIP adaptor which allows direct programming of virtually all devices with 8-40 pins. Adaptors and convertors are available to support nearly every type of IC package including PLCC, SOP, TSOP, QFP, TQFP, PGA and SOJ. Devices supported range from 8 pins to over 300 pins. In addition to the adaptors and convertors, 'gang-packs' are available for multi-site programming.
The unit includes a high-speed CPU and a 1 Mbit memory buffer expandable to 16 Mbytes. A high-speed parallel port (up to 130 kbyte/s) or a USB interface connect the programmer to any desktop or laptop PC running Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP. The software interface is a native Windows application.
The use of a new SMD SIMM module results in pin-driver circuits which provide extremely accurate programming waveforms. The module operates at high speed with high reliability and has a compact form factor. The ALL-11P3 can perform functional vector tests on programmable logic devices as fast as 4 ns.
The Windows-based interface makes programming simple, and includes an 'auto' function which displays all functions that may be performed on the device. After all desired functions are selected, programming is initiated by a single external key on the programmer.
The unit can process all popular file formats, and a full screen editor is provided to view or edit any address of the programming buffer in binary, ASCII, or Logic Fuse Map formats. Algorithms have been tested and approved by leading IC manufacturers.
The programmer is compact and lightweight, with its own built-in power supply, and fits easily into a brief case.
