4x Gang Programmer, USB & Standalone, ZIF & ISP, 78000+ devices US$5,700.00

4x Gang Programmer, USB & Standalone, ZIF & ISP, 78000+ devices

The Wellon GP204 universal gang programmer supports over 78,100 devices when connected to a PC, and over 66,300 devices in standalone mode. Devices include AVR, PIC and other microcontrollers, EEPROMs, plus PLDs and Flash memory. The programmer includes a power supply, in-circuit programming leads, and a USB cable for connection to your PC. It comes in a study suitcase for storage and transportation.

  • The Standalone mode is ideal for production environments not only because it doesn't require any technical skill to use, but for its security features. You can set up a passkey sequence that must be entered to begin programming, and can set it to require a passkey sequence after a set number of successful programming operations. This ensures against technological espionage, as you can keep track of exactly how many parts were programmed versus how many you have in production.

    The programmer is designed using state-of-art hardware architecture with on-board high-speed CPU, RTOS, FPGA, CPLD, and high-quality universal pin drivers. The universal pin drivers can route programmable precision signals, GND and CLK to any pin. An FPGA provides full I/O signals (from 1.5V to 5V) up to 48 pins. This makes the programmer truly universal: Both current and future 5V and low-voltage devices are supported. Different devices in the same package share one adapter. For example, the only QFP44 adapter (WL-TQFP44-U1) supports all MCUs, PLDs and memory. All DIL devices are supported directly with the standard ZIF48 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 an ultra-high programming speed.

    Insertion and continuity checks 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.

    The included in-system programming adapter's 10 flying leads are all labeled, so you can be sure that you're putting the correct wire on the correct pin when you need to program your devices in circuit.

    Note: To run on a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, you must set Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in your Advanced Boot Options.

    Example Programming Speeds

    • P89c58: 1.9 seconds
    • 29F040: 11.7 seconds
    • K9F2808U0A: 99 seconds
    • MX25L3205: 53 seconds

    Software Features

    The software is comprehensive, with lots of features that make it ideal for both production and development.
    • SELECT device includes package information, adapter type, part number, description, etc.
    • LOAD file supports checksums, comprehensive file formats and address location
    • Flexible Verify options, including VCC+/-10%
    • Blank check, Erase, Program, verify, Auto Program, buffer edit and much more
    • Serial numbers and statistics
    The programming software also allows you to modify the parameters of a programming algorithm, so that you can program devices that aren't yet supported, if you know their correct parameters.

    The programming software can be downloaded for Windows (XP/Vista/7/8/10, both 32-bit and 64-bit).

    Device support

    • PROM: N/CMOS E(E)PROM, SeriesE(E)PROM, and FLASH Memory
    • PLD: CPLD, EPLD, GAL, PEEL, PALCE and more
    • Microcontrollers: Atmel, Intel, Microchip, Signetics, Zilog, etc.

    The device support lists linked to above also tell you which socket adapter is required for each different package of a device. The Wellon Package Adapters are available separately.
