The Keyfob Concept
The keyfob Mini-programmer is a very small, portable, battery-powered programmer that can be used without error by unskilled users.
Once a keyfob Mini-programmer is loaded with a program file, EEPROM data file and/or device type and configuration information it is ready for use. The stored information is transfered with the press of a button to the device to be programmed.
As all this information is stored in non-volatile memory, the keyfob Mini-programmer can be stored for long periods and used to program microcontrollers in-system continuously.
Each keyfob Mini-programmer is loaded from a PC using the keyfob Mini-programmer starter kit. You only need one starter kit for as many keyfob Mini-programmers as you like.
If you want to change the programs or settings you are using, just plug the keyfob Mini-programmer back into the starter kit and load it with the new code and device information -- this can be done hundreds of times.
Designing the Keyfob Mini-Programmer Into Your Product
