Production In-System Programmer Extends Data Protection Features

January 14, 2009 - The universal, standalone in-system programmer specifically designed for the production environment (FlashRunner) now supports more than 2500 different devices. FlashRunner is the first professional-grade in-system programmer supporting such a vast array of devices, making it the top choice for serious programming needs.

FlashRunner supports microcontrollers and serial memories from the most popular silicon manufacturers, including Atmel, Catalyst, Cypress, Freescale, Fujitsu, Infinenon, Microchip, NEC, NXP, Renesas, Rohm, Silicon Labs, SST, STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments. The latest device list update brings the support of the Infineon XC2000 family, the STMicroelectronics STM8 and STM32 families and the Cypress PSoC family.

FlashRunner is a high-performance, standalone in-system programmer specific for Flash-based microcontrollers and serial memories. FlashRunner is targeted at production environments, easily integrates into your programming system or Automatic Test Equipment (ATE), and can work either in full standalone mode or controlled by a host system.

In medium to large programming volumes scenarios, in-system programming allows a significant reduction of the programming cost per part, with respect to traditional socket programmers. FlashRunner easily allows to save tens of thousand dollars per production batch. With an installed base of more than 1,000 units, FlashRunner has been greeted with enthusiasm by worldwide customers, both OEM and system integrators.
