ISP Programmer for ATE integration
- Easily integrates into Agilent, Teradyne, SPEA, Genrad, TRI and others ATEs
- Fast programming algorithms
- Non-intrusive programming
- Data retention guaranteed
FlashRunner FR01AT0 is a member of the FlashRunner I Series of universal, standalone in-system programmers specific for Flash-based microcontrollers and serial memories. FlashRunner FR01AT0 is targeted at production environments and can work either in full standalone mode or controlled by a host system. FlashRunner FR01AT0 is specifically designed for an easy integration with all in-circuit and functional test systems (ATEs), like Agilent, Teradyne, SPEA, Genrad, TRI and others. A relay circuitry allows each of the FlashRunner ISP lines to be independently disconnected from the target system, routing I/O lines coming from the ATE system to the target system instead.
- Fastest programming algorithms (as fast as target device’s memory technology limit), approved by silicon manufacturers
- Easy ATE integration
- Standalone operations (projects and code images stored on a memory card)
- Controllable by ATE through optoisolated LAN, RS-232 or parallel control lines
- Multiplexing on ISP lines coming from ATE or FlashRunner to the fixture
- Flexible, fully configurable
- Compact and robust design for production environments
- Galvanic isolation (relay disconnection) for all I/O ISP lines
- Data retention guranteed thanks to power and current monitoring during programming
- Power voltage monitoring has programmable threshold and pulse width
- Over-current monitoring on programmable power supply lines
FlashRunner features state-of-the-art electronics to provide you with high integration flexibility in a compact footprint.
- 9 to 24V power supply input
- Galvanic isolation (relay disconnection) with shield to fixture for all I/O ISP lines:
- Five digital I/O lines
- Two digital I/O or analog output lines
- Two programmable output voltages
- One analog input line
- One programmable clock output
- Secure Digital memory card (up to 2 GB)
- 512 bytes on-board dynamic memory
- On-board timekeeper and calendar for time-stamped log file
- Three optoisolated command inputs (START, STOP, RELAY)
- Three optoisolated status outputs (FAIL, PASS, BUSY)
- Five project selection lines
- Optoisolated RS-232/Ethernet channels
FlashRunner's open architecture makes its firmware easily upgradable to support both new devices and new features.
FlashRunner is set up and controlled via ASCII-based commands. FlashRunner can receive and execute commands in two ways:
- Over the RS-232 or Ethernet connection (Host mode)
- Via "scripts" stored in its SD card (Standalone mode)
In the first case, FlashRunner is controlled by a host system (e.g. Windows HyperTerminal); in the latter case, FlashRunner works in standalone mode and is fully autonomous.
- Fully autonomous standalone mode thanks to SD memory card (FAT16)
- Controllable by any host system through a terminal utility and simple ASCII protocol
- 32 hardware-selectable and unlimited software-selectable projects
- Interface Library DLL to control the instrument from within user written applications
- Optional Data Protection System to make the contents of the binary file to be programmed to the target device not readable (and not duplicable) by non-authorized people
- Time-stamped log files
- Erase, blank check, program, read, verify, oscillator trimming, etc.
FlashRunner comes with a Windows utility that allows you to communicate with the instrument and perform the most common operations: send commands, manage SD card files, update the instrument's firmware, etc.
