Universal Programmer, USB2.0, 48-pin ZIF & ISP, 94000+ devices US$820.00

Universal Programmer, USB2.0, 48-pin ZIF & ISP, 94000+ devices

The Wellon VP-998 universal programmer supports over 94,000 devices, including PIC microcontrollers, EEPROMs, dsPIC, AVR and other microcontrollers like AT89, plus PLDs and Flash memory. It also includes an ISP adapter (WL-ISP-U1) for programming devices in-circuit, and a USB cable for connection to your PC.

View Supported Devices List

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 voltage signals, GND and CLK to any pin. An FPGA provides full I/O signals (level programmable from 1.5V to 5V) to 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 an FPGA to achieve an 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.

Universal Programmer Software

The software is comprehensive, with lots of features that make it ideal for both production and development, such as auto-count, batch command, and start-upon-insertion.

  • 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).
