Universal Programmer, USB, 40-pin ZIF socket, 8500+ devices US$169.00

Universal Programmer, USB, 40-pin ZIF socket, 8500+ devices

This programmer is for a range of devices, including PIC microcontrollers, EEPROMs, AVR and other microcontrollers like AT89, plus PLDs and Flash memory. It includes a USB cable for connection to your PC.

View the full list of supported devices (opens in new window).

The programmer is designed using state-of-art hardware architecture with on-board high-speed CPU, RTOS, FPGA, and CPLD. All DIL devices are supported directly with the standard ZIF40 socket.

Manufacturer-approved algorithms, precision and clean signals promise high programming yield. Algorithm waveform is generated by hardware offering 0.01V programming voltage resolution and 1 microsecond timing resolution. Special design was made to eliminate overshoot and ground bounce. Algorithms are performed with state machine architecture constructed with FPGA to achieve a ultra-high programming speed.

Insertion and continuity check are performed before programming to protect devices from damage due to operator error. Over-current and over-voltage protection is enacted to each pin to protect the programmer hardware from damage due to bad chip short circuit and ESD.
