Fast and Reliable for the Industrial Environment (RS232/LAN)

Built for Speed
FlashRunner has been built for speed. Both the hardware and firmware have been engineered to work together in such an efficient way as to eliminate communication bottlenecks. On top of this, fast Programming Algorithms have been developed that reach the memory technology speed limit of the target device. This makes FlashRunner one of the fastest universal In-System Programmers on the market, enabling you to significantly cut production costs.

Flexible
FlashRunner works either in standalone mode or driven by a host system, through Ethernet or RS-232 connections. Its simple and versatile interface allows FlashRunner to be easily and seamlessly integrated into Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) systems. FlashRunner is compatible with Agilent, Teradyne, SPEA, Genrad, and other systems and test fixtures.

Reliable
FlashRunner features state-of-the-art electronics to provide you with high integration flexibility in a compact footprint. Every component of the system has been engineered to withstand the harshest production environments. Optoisolation, ESD protection, CRC on data transfers and detailed reports make FlashRunner the perfect choice when certainty of the programming flow is of the utmost importance.

Overview

 

  • Fastest programming algorithms;
  • ATE integration;
  • Standalone operations (projects and code images stored on a memory card);
  • Controllable by any host system via RS-232 or Ethernet;
  • Supports most ISP protocols (BDM, JTAG, SPI, I2C, MON, ICC, SCI, etc.);
  • Flexible and fully configurable;
  • Compact and robust design for production environments;
  • Data integrity guaranteed;
  • All of the models of the FlashRunner I series have been designed for maximum performance and reliability.

 

Hardware Features

  • Power supply input 9 to 24V DC;
  • Five digital I/O lines;
  • Two digital I/O or analog output lines;
  • Two programmable output voltages (0 to 15V, 0.25A and 0 to 5V, 0.5A);
  • One analog input line;
  • One programmable clock output;
  • Secure Digital memory card (up to 2 GB);
  • 512 bytes on-board dynamic memory;
  • On-board timekeeper and calendar;
  • I/O protection;
  • Optoisolated inputs for project selection;
  • Two optoisolated command inputs (START and STOP);
  • Three optoisolated status outputs (FAIL, PASS, BUSY);
  • Optoisolated RS-232 and Ethernet channels.

FlashRunner’s open architecture makes its firmware easily upgradeable to support both new devices and new features.

Software Features

FlashRunner comes with a Windows utility that allows you to communicate with the instrument and perform the most common operations: send commands, manage SD card files, update the instrument’s firmware, etc.
ASCII-based commands used to control and setup.

Two ways to receive and execute commands:

  • Over the RS-232 or Ethernet connection (controlled by a host system (e.g. Windows HyperTerminal);
  • Via “scripts” stored in its SD card (Standalone mode).

SD memory card (FAT16).
Unlimited projects (scripts).
Log files.
