Programming product line expandable for future needs

24 January 2001 Design Automation

DeviceRama offers an innovative range of programming tools for the electronics industry. The ChipBurner Gang family of device programmers is wholly versatile, through readily available selective customisation, incorporating DeviceRama's proprietary 'Multi Track' design. Each additional TRKCel supports eight individual programming sites. The unlimited expandability of this open architecture allows true flexibility by allowing one to mix and match TRKCels. This provides a low cost solution to today's Gang/Set programming needs.

The ChipBurner Gang family includes the following models: ChipBurner-Gang 8 supports one TRKCel (eight devices); ChipBurner-Gang 16 supports two TRKCels (16 devices); ChipBurner-Gang 32 supports four TRKCels (32 devices).

* CBG-8: Completely standalone workstation capable of programming up to eight devices at one time. Consists of a base machine which contains its own CPU and therefore does not require a PC for operation. A 30-key integrated keyboard and a large 40-character LCD allows simple and easy-to-use single key operation. An unparalleled 8 Mb of RAM is standard. Also includes an RS232 port for automated PC/driven production. This base is capable of driving one 'TRKCel' (separately sold) of your choice supporting eight devices. This is an ideal unit for low volume production.

* CBG-16: Entails same integrated features of CBG-8 but can program up to 16 devices at one time. This base is capable of driving two 8-Gang TRKCels of your choice supporting a total of 16 devices. These TRKCels can be mixed and matched to support a combination of device packages and technologies. Ideal for medium volume production.

* CBG-32: Is the first production programmer to support 32 devices at a time with combinations of four package types or technologies by supporting four different TRKCels. Standalone workstation can program up to 32 devices at one time. Entails same integrated features of CBG-8/16. This base is capable of driving four 8-Gang TRKCels supporting up to 32 devices. TRKCels can be mixed and matched to support a combination of device packages and technologies. Ideal for medium to high volume production.
