ISPnano Series 3 - GANG4 System - 4-channel production ISP programming system

 
 
 

The ISPnanoS3-GANG4 is a 4-channel gang programming system made up of 4 independent ISPnano Series 3 programmers. It is capable of programming 4 target systems (DUTs) concurrently with each channel completely independent from the other channels. 

The ISPnanoS3-GANG4 system is designed for programming multi-PCB panels made up of PCBs each with a programmable microcontroller or memory device.

The ISPnanoS3-GANG4 is a scaleable ISP programming solution which can be expanded from 4 channels up to 32 channels by simply adding more programmers to the network.
