A new family of multi-site inline programmers from GOEPEL electronic performs high-speed in-system programming (ISP) of non-volatile memory devices such as flash memory, serial EEPROM, microcontroller units (MCUs), and programmable logic devices (PLDs). The first member of the RAPIDO product family, the RPS900-S16, provides double-sided probing with up to 900 nail probes and gang programming of up to 16 sites. Supporting all ISP technologies based on embedded system access, available applications include FPGA-assisted programming (FAP), core-assisted programming (CAP) through a JTAG or non-JTAG debug interface of a processor, in-application programming (IAP), and programming via Boundary Scan.
The RAPIDO offers flexible handling and high throughput for production applications. Itís compatibility with other SYSTEM CASCON configurations allows users to directly reuse test and programming routines. This streamlines the development process and eliminates the need for target-specific programmer licenses.
Applications include all types of flash memory devices, including NOR, NAND, and eMMC with parallel or serial interface, as well as on-chip memory on micro-controllers and all kinds of PLD and FPGA devices. In the case of flash-accessible through-edge connectors or probe points, RAPIDOís dynamic I/O resources enables direct programming through nail probes. The programmer includes the SYSTEM CASCON software and SCANFLEX hardware platforms, respectively. In addition, various options can be added to the system configuration in order to incorporate board test applications, to accommodate customer specific extensions, to program through CAN, LIN or FlexRay interfaces, and for communication with pick-and-place feeders and with PASS/FAIL sorters, for example.
