ISPnano Series IV ATE Programmer


Click HERE to view the 'ISPnano Series IV - ATE' programmer page.

ISPnano-MUX - 2 / 4 / 8 channel Multiplexed Programming Systems


The ISPnano-MUX programmers multiplex a single ISPnano programmer to 2, 4 or 8 Target Boards.

Click HERE to view the 'ISPnano-MUX' programmer page.

ISPnano-GANG - multi-channel gang programming systems


The ISPnano-GANG series of programmers are multi-channel versions of the powerful
ISPnano Series 3 programmer. The gang systems are available in 4, 6 or 8 channel
combinations and can be daisychained to make up to a 32 channel system.

Programmer Control Methods

The ISPnano programmer can be controlled via many different methods including...

These programmer ‘Control methods’ MUST be purchased separately as Software Development Kits (SDK’s).

Click HERE to view the Control Methods Overview page.

Standalone mode 'Standalone - Operator Start Mode'
An operator can manually commence a programming
operation via either the START push-button or a
Remote Keypad.
Standalone Lid Switch

'Standalone - Fixture Jig / Lid Switch mode’
Closing of the programming fixture lid triggers the execution of a programming project. (can be standalone or PC controlled)

Target Load Sensing

'Standalone - Target Load Sensing'
Senses the presence of a target connection.

ASCII Text 'ASCII Text Communications (Serial Protocol)'
This simple ASCII protocol can be used to control the
programmer from a PC or any other control system eg. PLC.
4-wire TTL 4-wire TTL ‘Remote Control / ATE'
4-WIRE Remote System Control of Equinox programmers (ATE Interface Port)

'EDS Development Mode'
This is a simple yet powerful ‘development interface’ supporting generation of ‘programming projects’ and interactive testing of the target device programming under PC control.

ISP-PRO ‘Production ISP Monitoring Application’
Controls up 32 programmers from a single PC.
Comprehensive data-logging of all programming operations.
ActiveX ‘ActiveX control’
Supports direct control of the programmer from any customer Windows application via an ‘Equinox Library’ of functions.
Console EDS

'Console Application'
Supports both low-level and high-level control from any customer Windows application by shelling to a console application
