  • Multi-PCB Programming
  • Extremely Compact
  • Test-Fixture Oriented
  • Ideal for Manufacturing Mass Programming

FlashRunner FR01M01 is a member of the FlashRunner I Series of universal, standalone in-system programmers. It is targeted at production environments, easily and seamlessly integrates on test fixtures and can work either in full standalone mode or controlled by a host system. FlashRunner FR01M01 provides connections for programming up to eight ISP sites thanks to the built-in ISP lines multiplexing.

  • Eight ISP sites (multiplexed)
  • 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)
  • Also controllable by any host system via RS-232 or Ethernet
  • Supports most ISP protocols (BDM, JTAG, SPI, I2C, MON, ICC, SCI, etc.)
  • Flexible, fully configurable
  • Compact and robust design for production environments
  • Data integrity guaranteed (every data transfer to/from the host system or Secure Digital card is CRC tagged)

Hardware features
FlashRunner features state-of-the-art electronics to provide you with high integration flexibility in a compact footprint.

  • 9 to 24V power supply input
  • Five digital I/O lines per ISP site
  • Two digital I/O or analog output lines per ISP site
  • Two programmable output voltages (0 to 14.5V, 250mA and 0 to 5.5V, 500mA) per ISP site
  • One programmable clock output per ISP site
  • Secure Digital memory card (up to 2 GB)
  • 512 bytes on-board dynamic memory;
  • On-board timekeeper and calendar;
  • I/O protection
  • Optoisolated inputs for project selection
  • Two optoisolated command inputs (START and STOP)
  • Three optoisolated status outputs (FAIL, PASS, BUSY)
  • One optoisolated RS-232 channel
  • One optoisolated Ethernet channel

FlashRunner's open architecture makes its firmware easily upgradable to support both new devices and new features.

Software 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 its SD memory card (FAT16)
  • Controllable by any host system through a terminal utility and simple ASCII protocol
  • Unlimited projects (scripts)
  • 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.
