Universal programmer combines ease of operation with high-speed USB
The new All-100 universal and gang programmer, available from Computer
Solutions, is a versatile, high-speed unit for programming virtually every
type of device with a programmable memory or configuration including EPROM,
EEPROM, FLASH, PLD/CPLD/FPGA, microcontrollers, BPROM and Serial PROM.
Featuring a high-speed 16-bit CPU and a 480 Mbit/s USB2 interface for
maximum programming and download speeds, the new programmer is fitted with a
48-pin DIP socket which will support most devices either directly or with a
simple adaptor. A Windows 98/XT/2K user interface makes programming quick
and easy, and for higher throughput up to eight units may be controlled by
The All-100 supports over 9000 ICs from all the major device manufacturers,
with algorithms and hardware tested and certified by leading IC
manufacturers including AMD, Atmel, ICT, Macronix, NXP/Freescale, National
Semiconductor, TI, Winbond, WSI, Xilinx and others. Nearly all devices with
8-48 pins in DIP format can be programmed directly by the standard 48-pin
DIP pack, but adaptors and convertors are available to support devices with
up to 300 pins and nearly every type of IC package including PLCC, SOP, TSOP,
QFP, TQFP, PGA, SOJ and BGA.
The programmer consists of a universal base and exchangeable adaptor
options, and incorporates SIMM module pin-driver circuits which provide
extremely accurate programming waveforms, operate at high speed with high
reliability and have a compact form factor. Some gang adaptor options are
Programming is very simple. The user chooses a device manufacturer and
device type from a menu, and reads in a file from a master device or loads a
file from the PC. An automatic programming function is provided which allows
the user to indicate all functions to be performed on the device (blank
check, program, verify, program security, protect sectors etc.) prior to
programming being initiated by a single external button.
The All-100 can process all popular file formats including Intel HEX,
Motorola S-records, binary, JEDEC fuse map, Altera POF and others. A full
screen editor is provided to view or edit any address of the programming
buffer in binary, ASCII, or Logic Fuse Map formats.
Over current protection circuits and reverse-insertion detection protect both
the ICs and the programmer. A self-diagnostic test is included to verify
correct operation of the hardware and to meet calibration requirements.
Every All-100 is backed by a one-year hardware warranty.
