ISPnano-GANG Series 3 - multichannel ISP systems - OVERVIEW

 
 
 

The ‘ISPnano Series 3 - GANG’ programming systems offer a very high-speed In-System Programming (ISP) solution capable of concurrent (in parallel) programming of up to 32 x Target Boards (DUT's). Each Target Board is connected to a completely independent ISPnano programmer which ensures the fastest possible programming times for multi-PCB panels. Independent powering and programming of each DUT means that a problem on one DUT does not affect any of the other DUTs.

The illustration below shows a 4-channel GANG programming system (ISPnano-S3-GANG4) programming 4 x Target Boards (PCBs) at the same time.....

Key features:

  • True concurrent (parallel / gang) programming - each Target Board (DUT) is programmed by an independent programmer
  • Available as pre-configured 2 / 4 / 6 / 8 channel concurrent (parallel) programming systems
  • Scaleable programming solution - GANG systems can be daisy-chained up to a maximum of 32 x concurrent programming channels
  • Ideal for programming multi-PCB panels
  • Independent power control of each Target Board (DUT) ensures trouble-free programming even if there are short-circuits on some DUTs
  • Synchronised ‘Standalone Programming Mode’ possible for all programmers - triggered by ‘Fixture lid switch’
  • Simple and quick programmer replacement possible

Scaleable gang programming system

 

The ‘ISPnanoSeries 3 - GANG’ programming system has been specially designed for mass-production programming of either individual PCBs (DUTs) or ‘multi-PCB Panels’. The system features a completely independent ‘ISPnano Series III’ programming module connected to each Target system (DUT) to be programmed and is scaleable from 1 to 32 programming channels by simply daisy-chaining the required number of programmers via an RS485 network.

True concurrent (GANG) programming


The ‘ISPnano Series 3 - GANG’ programming system supports true concurrent (GANG) programming of up 32 PCBs (DUTs) at the same time. The system can operate in either Synchronous or Asynchronous programming modes...

Synchronous programming - When the programming fixture lid is closed, all programmers will immediately commence programming. This mode is ideal for programming multiple PCBs on a ‘Multi-PCB Panel’.

Asynchronous programming - This mode allows PCBs to be randomly connected / disconnected from the programmers. It is ideal for manual operator programming where individual PCBs can be disconnected as soon as the programming operation completes. Failed PCBs can be disconnected immediately instead of waiting for all PCBs to finish.

ISPnano Series 3 - Production ISP programing module

ISPnanoS3

The 'ISPnano Series 3 - GANG' programming systems are made up of 2, 4, 6 or 8 of the powerful 'ISPnano Series 3 - Production ISP programing module'.

Connecting the ISPnanoS3-GANG4 to a PC

Independent power control per DUT

 

  • All DUT power and programming signals are completely isolated from all other DUTs, so a fault on one DUT e.g. a short-circuit or signal issue will not affect programming of the other DUTs.
  • Independent power control per DUT also ensures that any power supply fault is localised to a single programming channel.

Gang ISP Programming / network programming support

Gang ISP Programming configuration is ideal for programming multiple PCB's on a 'PCB Panel'
Up to 32 programmers can be controlled from a single PC using the RS485 Bus
• Compact size and network option allows up to 32 programmers to be mounted even in small fixtures.

Device Libraries

To keep the overall system cost as low as possible, the ISPnano programmers do not come with any 'Device support' enabled as standard. Please click here for a list of available 'Device Libraries' which can be purchased as add-ons to the programmer.

Typical applications

 

  • Medium to high-throughput production programming (ISP)
  • Multi-PCB panel programming (concurrent programming of up to 32 PCBs)
  • Production Test / Programming fixtures
