ISPnano S1 Kit - Production ISP Programming Module Kit

 
 
 

High-Speed Production In-System Programming (ISP)Module designed for ATE / Test Fixtures

The ISPnano is a state-of-the-art Production ISP Programmer designed for high-speed In-System Programming (ISP) of FLASH Microcontrollers and Serial Memory devices. Its compact size and abundance of programming ports makes it ideal for integration into any Test Fixture or ATE System. It supports programming of devices by most interfaces including SPI, JTAG, JTAG chain, SCI, I2C (2-wire) and UART Boot Loader. The fastest possible programming times are guaranteed due to a combination of highly optimised algorithms, local storage of Project Data and high slew rate Line Driver Circuitry.

The ISPnano is capable of operating in 'Standalone Mode' where any one of 64 independent 'Programming Projects' can be executed via a remote command.  The programmer also features a 4-wire TTL Remote Control interface making it ideal for interfacing to any ATE or In-Circuit Tester (ICT). A special 'Start Signal' can be used to detect when a Test Fixture lid has been closed and thereby automatically start a programming operation.

Programmer Power Supplies

The ISPnano features the following on-board power supplies:
• 
1 x Programmable Target Vcc Supply: 1.2 - 5.0V @ 300mA
• 1 x Programmable Target Vpp Supply: 5.8 - 13.5V @ 100mA
• 1 x External Vcc Voltage Supply (1.2V - 24.0V) switched to Target System

Power Supply features:
• Wide power supply input voltage range: 9.0V to 24.0V
• Short-circuit protected outputs
• Fast rise-time with enhanced current pumping capability to fast charge any capacitance on the Target System.
• Each power supply output (Vcc and Vpp) can be user-calibrated to a very accurate "spot voltage"

The programmer can be triggered to start a programming sequence using any of the following methods:

[START] button on front panel
4-wire TTL Remote control Port (Ideal for ATE Remote Control)
Target 'Load Sensing' Detection
• Test Fixture 'Lid Switch Sensing' (closes to start programming)
Remote Keypad / Display mounted on the top of the Test Fixture
