WriteNow! Technology

Introduction

The global, electronics manufacturing market requires high volumes and low-production costs.Therefore, programming time is a key factor. The WriteNow! technology is targeted to on-board (in-system) programming and has been designed to achieve high-speed programming, while maintaining reliability and flexibility. The WriteNow! technology has been created with speed and reliability as key features, and employs state-of-the art components and techniques to give birth to the WriteNow! Series of In-System Programmers.

True Parallelism & High Speed

Typically, PCBs are grouped into PCB panels. To program all of the devices in a panel, a traditional approach consists of using either multiple programming tools (with added costs and complexity) or a demultiplexing solution (with slow overall programming time). The WriteNow! technology allows the programming of up to 8 devices at once, drastically reducing programming times, costs, and system complexity. In addition, the WriteNow! technology performances allow to reach the theoretical programming speed for any given device, thus shortening as much as possible the programming phase of the production process.

WriteNow!
In-System Programmer

Write! BEFORE Socket Programmer

Socket Adapters are printed circuit boards which connect the programming sites to the base unit. The Socket Adapter (SA) includes the appropriate socket (DIP, SDIP, SOIC, QFP, BGA) and the appropriate electrical connections for programming a specific device.

  • • Based on Algocraft WriteNow! technology
  • • Excellent performance
  • • Supports FLASH microcontrollers & serial memories
  • • Implementation into available 3rd party automated programmers and ATE machines
  • • Up to Eight devices programmable at once
  • • Device-Specific Programming Socket

Hardware Features

  • • Universal and upgradable base unit
  • • High-speed I/O
  • • High-speed, parallel programming
  • • Memorizes data on a built-in memory card
