Phyton CP12-B1 - In-System Device Programmer


The CPI2-B1 device programmer belongs to the ChipProg-ISP2 family of Phyton in-system production device programmers, designed for use with ATE, ICT, programming fixtures and automated handlers. It can also be used for development, and in stand-alone mode for field service. CPI2-B1 can be used for programming microcontrollers, flash memory and programmable logical devices.

Use of some CPI2-B1 programming features requires purchasing additional software licenses:

The CPI2-ACI license is tied to the programmer's hardware and enables remote control via DLL and other options.

CPI2-D-XXXX target-specific Device Driver Library licenses enable programming support for a certain group of devices.



Major Features
  • Designed around extremely fast CPI2 programming engine - see the timing.
  • Connects to PC via High Speed USB 2.0, 100 Mbit/s Ethernet or RS232 (optional) interfaces.
  • Stand-alone or PC-hosted operation.
  • Has a SD card for storing up to 64 projects
  • Use of the SD card enables fast project switching and speeds up stand-alone operations.
  • Up to 72 programmers can be concurrently controlled by a single PC.
  • Supports multiple ISP interfaces: JTAG, JTAG chain, SWD, SPI, SCI, I2C, UART, and more.
  • Supports ISP for devices with Vcc voltages in the range of 1.2V to 5.5V.
  • Programmable Vpp power supply output from 1.5V to 15V.
  • Power source for target board adjustable from 1.2 to 5.5V @ 350 mA.
  • Programs devices at distances as long as 10 ft (3m) - actual distance is target specific.

Areas of Application
  • Production single and multi-channel device programmer for use in ATE, ICT, fixtures and handlers.
  • Development in-system device programmer.
  • Stand-alone battery-powered in-field service programmer.

Implementations and Mechanical Options
  • Palm-size unit in a plastic enclosure.
  • Includes removable plastic bracket for mounting CPI2-B1 units on a standard 35 mm DIN rail.
  • An optional small compartment with a lithium battery and controls can be attached to the CPI2-B1 unit for stand-alone operation such as in-field service.

Communication Interfaces
  • High Speed USB 2.0 (480Mbps).
  • 100 Mbit/s Ethernet with ATE-to-DUT galvanic insulation.
  • RS-232C, galvanically isolated (optional, requires CPI2-ISO board).

Control Methods
  • Friendly and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).
  • User-configurable simplified interface for use by unskilled personnel.
  • Integration with National Instruments® LabVIEW™ software.
  • Controllable by Automated Test Equipment (ATE), In-Circuit Test System (ICT), fixtures and handlers.
  • Application Control Interface (DLL).
  • Command line mode.
  • On-the-fly control utility allows modification of commands in a running programmer without stopping its operation.
  • Script language for mastering user-defined scripts.
  • Programming can be initiated manually or automatically by connecting to target device or closing the fixture lid.

Project and Configuration Management
Power Source Options
  • External power adapter 5V@1A.
  • Can be powered by PC's USB communication port.
  • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery (optional).

Power for Targets
  • In a process of programming allows powering target equipment from external sources.
  • When powered from an external power adapter (5V@1A), CPI2-B1 can provide Vcc (1.2 to 5.5V @ up to 350mA) and Vpp (1.2 to 15V @ up to 80mA) voltages for the target equipment.

Software Features
  • Supports loading and saving files in all popular formats.
  • Unlimited number of data buffers can be open simultaneously.
  • Arithmetic operations on data blocks in buffers.
  • Programmable serialization of target devices.
  • Multiple serialization algorithms, including script-controlled ones.
  • Allows writing of user-defined signatures and data blocks into target devices.
  • Several different algorithms of checksum calculation.
  • Special DLL for user-defined checksum calculation.
  • Stores logs of programming sessions with time-stamping.
  • Easy to use GUI editor for device-specific settings and algorithm parameters, such as fuses, lock bits, protected sectors, boot loader vectors, clock frequency, etc.
  • Featured with a link opening connection diagram for currently selected device right from the GUI.
  • Comprehensive self-test and diagnostic procedures.

Target Interface Signals
  • Equipped with a 20-pin "TARGET" connector and supplied with a 10" ribbon cable with compatible 20-pin headers.
  • Ten target-specific logic inputs/outputs with 1.2 to 5.5V levels, individually programmable as I/O, GND or Vcc.
  • For stable programming the above ten signal lines are interspersed with GND wires.
  • Two inputs/outputs individually programmable as TTL logic I/O, GND, or Vcc or Vpp.

Signals for Interfacing with External Equipment

TTL-level input and output logic signals for interfacing with external equipment are available at the 20-pin "CONTROL" connector.
The signals include:

  • start/stop signal;
  • output status signals: BUSY, GOOD and ERROR;
  • six inputs for selection of one of the 64 pre-loaded projects;
  • one low-current TTL logic voltage output that can be used for driving the above project selection inputs;
  • three GND lines.
  • Use of CPI2-ISO board insures galvanic isolation of all control signals on the "CONTROL" connector.
  • When using CPI2-BB option, the connector provides power for charging the battery but other "CONTROL" signals become unavailable for use.

System requirements
  • Microsoft® Windows™ XP, 7, 8 and 10.
