  • FPGA based totally reconfigurable 48 powerful TTL pindrivers provide H/L/pull_up/pull_down and read capability for each pin of socket. Advanced pindrivers incorporate high-quality high-speed circuitry to deliver signals without overshoot or ground bounce for all supported devices. Pin drivers operate down to 1.8V so you'll be ready to program the full range of tomorrows advanced low-voltage devices.
  • The programmer performs device insertion and contact tests before programming each device. These capabilities, supported by overcurrent protection and signature-byte check help prevent chip damage due to operator error.
  • The selftest capability allows diagnostics included in the software to thoroughly check the health of the programmer.
  • Various socket converters are available to handle device in PLCC, JLCC, SDIP, SOP, VSOP, SSOP, TSOP, TSSOP, QFP, PQFP, TQFP, VQFP, BGA, uBGA, SON, WSON, QFN (MLF) and other packages

Programmer Specification

Base Unit (DAC)

  • USB 2.0 high-speed compatible port
  • Logic signal level 1.5V..6.0V/10mV
  • IOL, IOH current 10mA
  • Logic signal frequency 75MHz (3..5V), 60MHz (2.5V), 45MHz (1.8V), 25MHz (1.5V)

  • CE certified

ZIF Socket

  • 48-pin DIL ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket accepts both 300/600 mil devices up to 48-pin
  • Pindrivers 48 universal

User Interface

  • Programmer is driven by an easy-to-use control program compatible with the latest operating systems. Selecting of device is performed by its class, by manufacturer or simply by typing a fragment of vendor name and/or part number.
  • Standard device-related commands (read, blank check, program, verify, erase) are enhanced by test functions (insertion test, signature-byte check) and additional special functions (auto run - programming starts immediately once chip inserted into socket).
  • User can create and save a project file which contains device selection, buffer data and all the programming set-up options. This project file can then be loaded for future use reducing set-up times.
  • Binary, Intel HEX,TEK HEX and Motorola S-record (HEX) formats are supported. Automatic file format detection and conversion during loading of file.
  • Multiple S6 programmers can be connected to the same PC (via USB port) achieving an extremely powerful multi-programming system, supporting as many devices as a single S6 programmer and without a noticeable decrease in programming speed. Concurrent multi-programming is also supported allowing each programmer to work independently increasing throughput.
  • Keeping your programmer software up to date can be a costly business with some programmers. Dataman offers completely FREE software updates whenever you need them. The latest software is always available from our website.
