Phyton ChipProg-G4 - Universal 4-channel Gang Programmer for Manufacturing

 
 
 

The Phyton ChipProg-G4 is powerful 4-channel production gang programmer suitable for medium to high volume off-board production programming. It features 4 x independent programming modules allowing it to program  4 ICs simulataneously. The 4 x high-quality 48-pin ZIF sockets support insertion of any DIL device up to 48 pins. A range of Socket Adaptors is available to suit most other package types.  

The ChipProg-G4 programmer is based on 4 x Phyton ChipProg-48 programmers working concurrently and so provides very fast programming. It supports parallel & serial EPROM & EEPROM; microcontrollers, and PAL/PALCE/GAL/PEEL/PLD devices.

The ChipProg-G4 programmer is controlled via a single USB port to a PC. The powerful PC software supports sequencing of all 4 programming sites.

Features

  • Powerful 4-channel gang production programming solution for off-board IC programming
  • Suitable for medium to high volume off-board production programming applications
  • Supports programming of 30,000+ devices
  • Device support includes parallel & serial EPROM & EEPROM; microcontrollers and PAL/PALCE/GAL/PEEL/PLD devices
  • Programs all DIP-packed device from 6 to 48 pin via 48-pin pin ZIF DIP sockets - no additional adapters are required
  • Optional adapters for programming devices in PLCC, SOIC, SSOP, QFP, BGA, QFN, SON and other packages are available
  • Provides very fast operations - programs a 64 MBit NOR flash memory device for less than 50 sec
  • Supports in-system programming for the devices allowing the ISP (ICP) mode via special cables-adapters
  • Communicates to a PC via a single USB 2.0 compatible port
  • Very fast programming as it is based on four independently operating 'Programming Module' each with its own microcontroller and FPGA
  • Each site has its own 'Start' button for fast manual operations programmable to execute a single operation or a batch of them
  • Advanced self-diagnostic start-up routine that check the target device reliable contact in the programming socket
  • Incorrect device insertion check and overcurrent protection; automatically detects bad contacts before starting any operation
  • Lifetime free software updates via Web
  • Features a built-in universal 110-240VAC power adapter; US, European, UK and Australian power cables are available
  • CE and RoHS compliant

4-channel gang programming

The ChipProg-G4 programmer features 4 completely independent 'Programming Modules' which are networked back to a controlling PC via a high-speed USB link. This allows the G4 to program 4 devices simultaneouly with either the same or different data. It also means that there is loading between the channels and a problem with an IC on one channel will not affect a device on another channel.

  • Completely independent Programming Module per channel
  • All power, Vpp and signal connections are independent per channel
  • Independent PASS / BUSY / FAIL indicators per channel
  • A 'START' switch on each channel can be used to manually start a selected channel.
  • If one IC fails to program, this does not affect the other programming channels
  • In case of a problem, a complete channel can be swapped out with a new Programming Module.

48-pin ZIF Socket

The ChipProg-G4 programmer features a 48-pin DIL (Dual-In-Line) ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket with 48 independent pin-drivers. The 48-pin ZIF socket allows the programmer to support many more devices than the more traditional 40-pin programmers on the market including high-density FLASH and EEPROM Memory devices which are common in 48-pin TSOP packages. Many of the more recent high-integration microcontrollers also require more than 40pins for programming. A suitable Package Adaptor is required to convert the package of the target chip to the DIL equivalent. 

Device Support Overview

The ChipProg-G4 programmer supports a wide range of programmable ICs including:

  • Microcontrollers: 8051, PIC, AVR, XMEGA, ARM, MSP430 etc
  • Parallel EEPROM Memories
  • Serial EEPROM Memories
  • PAL/PALCE/GAL/PEEL/PLD devices
  • In-System Programmable microcontrollers using additional ISP cable

The device support is updated regularly but Phyton cannot guarantee to add all new devices.

Optional Socket Adaptors

A comprehensive range of production quality Socket Adaptors is available for the ChipProg-G4 programmer to support many different package types including:

  • PSOP, TSOP
  • TQFP, PQFP
  • SOP, SOIC
  • BGA, PBGA
  • ISP

Many adaptors are available as either a "Clamshell" version or a "Open-top Push-type" adaptor.

Powerful PC Driver Software

The ChipProg-G4 programmer is controlled by a powerful software utility running on the PC. This utility controls / sequences all 4 programming channels allowing for efficient production programming.

Software features:

  • PC software works under control of Windows 9x/2000/NT/XP/Vista
  • All 4 x Programming Modules controlled via a single USB 2.0 interface to the PC
  • Easy-to-use and intuitive user interface
  • Supports loading files of all popular formats: Intel HEX, Binary, Motorola S-format, POF, JEDEC, PRG, ASCII Hex & Octal, etc.
  • Built-in editor supports sophisticated operations with blocks
  • Vpp and other parameters precise adjustment via the software settings
  • Splits files to multiple images
  • Embedded script language for automation of routine operations
  • Serialization of the programmed devices by writing a serial number into a specified target memory location
