EPSILON5 - Portable ISP Programmer and Atmel AT91SAM7 JTAG Device Library bundle

 
 
 

The Epsilon5 Portable USB ISP Programmer is a high-speed development / field / production programmer supporting most in-system programmable (ISP) microcontrollers from Atmel, Philips and Zensys. The programmer can be operated under PC control during development and for project configuration / uploading using the EQTools Toolsuite. For field / production applications the unit is designed to operate in ‘Standalone Mode’. A ‘Programming Project’ can be recalled from the on-board non-volatile FLASH memory and programmed into a Target System by pressing a single key. All the popular ISP headers are catered for including the new JTAG ISP Port required for fast programming of the Atmel ATmega AVR and AT91SAM7 families.

The Device Library supports In-System Programming (ISP) of the Atmel AT91SAM7 "S", "SE", "A" and "L" familes of ARM7 microcontrollers. This solution is aimed at high throughput production users who require the fastest possible programming of the on-chip FLASH memory of any AT91SAM7 microcontroller. The standard ARM JTAG Debug Port is used as the programming interface so no extra pins are needed to facilitate the ISP functionality.

Device Support

Supports PC Controlled and Standalone Programming
  • Development Mode - using Equinox Development Suite (EDS) under PC control
  • Standalone Mode - ideal for field or small-scale production use (no PC required)

Main features
  • Fastest programming times possible due to on-board data, high-speed SPI and JTAG port
  • Supports programming of FLASH, EEPROM, FUSE bits, Security bits and RC Oscillator Calibration bytes
  • 2Mbits of on-board non-volatile FLASH memory for user project storage (Standalone Mode)
  • SCK2 Oscillator signal for externally clocking ATmega & ATtiny microcontrollers during programming
  • On-board +12V Vpp generator for programming Atmel ATtiny11/12/15 microcontrollers in 'High voltage Serial Mode'
  • JTAG Port - FAST ISP using JTAG algorithm (license upgrade)

Controlled / configured by Equinox EQTools Software
  • Equinox Development Suite (EDS)
  • Project Builder - to create/edit Programming Projects
  • Project Manager - to create and maintain Project Collections
  • Project Upload / Download Utility - to upload projects to the programmer for use in Standalone Mode

Supports all popular ISP Headers to connect to the Target System
  • Atmel 10-way SPI Header (as per STK200 / STK500)
  • Atmel 6-way SPI Header
  • Equinox 10-way SPI header with support for Slave Select & SCK2
  • Atmel 10-way JTAG header (as per Atmel JTAG-ICE)
  • Equinox 10-way UART header for Atmel T89C51Rx2 (8051) and Philips P89C51 ISP FLASH microcontrollers

Features of AT91SAM7 Device Library
  • High-speed In-System Programming (ISP) support of Atmel AT91SAM7 microcontrollers
  • Programs the on-chip FLASH Memory of AT91SAM7 devices
  • Uses standard ARM JTAG port as the ISP interface
  • Very high-speed programming due to local data storage and optimised programming algorithms
  • Programmers can be used in "Standalone Mode" (no PC) - Up to 64 SAM7S Programming Projects can be stored inside an FS003, PPM3-MK2 or PPM4-MK1 programmer
  • Supports high-speed program / verify of the on-chip FLASH in a singe operation.
  • Optimised Erase operations blanks the on-chip FLASH in less than 200ms
  • Supports programming of non volatle Fuse Bits
  • Supports blowing of the "Security Fuse" to protect code from being read out

AT91SAM7 ISP Connections
