BeeProg3/BeeHive304, sustainable programming speed is now greater than 31 MB/s
- We have done a next step of the BeeProg3/BeHive304 programming speed optimization, where we reach more than 31 MBytes per second data flow from/to programmed device. The programming of the high speed memories, mainly eMMC (which allow that programming speed), are now programmed at nearly 70% of the previous time. BeeProg3/BeeHive304 are now world fastest universal programmers.
Number of supported devices is over 90.000
Number of supported devices is over 85.000
BeeProg3/BeeHive304, sustainable programming speed now greater than 22.5 MB/s with outlook to speed close to 30 MB/s
- We have done next step of the BeeProg3/BeHive304 programming speed optimization, where we reach a more than 22.5 MBytes per second. Of course all parallel NAND Flash and eMMC devices - which allow that programming speed - are now programmed so quickly.
And even better: we're currently working on the next improvement, which hit a level close to 30 MB/s.
Number of supported devices is over 80.000
BeeProg2/BeeProg2C/BeeHive204/BeeHive208S and BeeProg2AP/BeeHive204AP TurboMode
We have good news for customers BeeProg2/BeeProg2C, BeeHive204, BeeHive208S and BeeProg2AP/BeeHive204AP programmers: substantial increasing of programming speed for high-capacity memories as a result of intensive and smart development.
- the final implementation require to rewrite firmware of programmer, low level drivers in PC software, fine-tune of the programming algorithms and optimization of programming adapters design. Therefore implementation of this feature will be step-by-step, of course on-demand requests will have most priority
- use AlgOR form if you request the implementation of Turbo mode for particular device(s). Also mention, in the 'Comment' or 'Notes to request' array, that you need Turbo mode for this device
The programming speed for NAND Flash and eMMC memories was increased from roughly 2MB/s to roughly 5MB/s (not a typo!).
The TurboMode will be freely available (more details) for all BeeProg2/BeeProg2C, BeeHive204, BeeHive208S and BeeProg2AP/BeeHive204AP programmers, starts from 12/2013.
We can teach old dog new tricks ...
- Let us inform you, the longer time awaited ultra speed universal programmer will be available soon. The BeeProg3 design was focused on programming of high-capacity memories: NAND Flash, eMMC, parallel NOR Flash and serial NOR Flash. Programmer reach sustainable programing speed greater than 20 MBytes per second and is capable to program 2 GB eMMC NAND Flash within less than 100 seconds. BeeProg3 supports devices with VCC voltages as low as 0.8V, ready to support all kinds of types and silicon technologies of today's and tomorrow's programmable devices.
- BeeHive304 is ultra speed 4x 64-pindrive universal production multiprogrammer based on the BeeProg3 programming core. This concurently working 4-sites multiprogrammer perfectly fits for high-demanding desktop programming, as well as for automated programming systems and ATE machines, where ensures the highest quality and overall yield. One control software can serve up to 64 programming sites in one automated programmer (16x BeeHive304 programmers). The BeeHive304 multiprogrammer supports as many chips, as the BeeProg3 programmer supports and without obvious decreasing of programming speed because each programming site works independently. Programming modules construction is designed for perfect stability at the top of the programmer, to be tough enough for insert/replace chips by mechanical arm and also allows to keep identical position of ZIF socket also after replacing of the module.
Number of supported devices is over 75.000
Cypress qualified Elnec's support for PSoC 5 LP family devices
- Let us announce, that Cypress qualified Elnec support for PSoC 5 LP family devices and have begun to notify his field and distributors of that capability
PG4UW SW is now compatible with MS Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)
- Our control software for our programmers was tested with MS Windows 8 and is fully compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit version of MS Windows 8 OS. Please, use 2.xx version and above.
- The new BeeProg2C is a cost effective version of BeeProg2 and also replacement of BeeProg+ programmer. BeeProg2C was created due to shortage of critical component used inside of BeeProg+. BeeProg+ programmer was discontinued.
- To be able implement BeeHive204AP device programmer into automated programmer/handler without ZIF socket opener, it is necessary to have also version of with ZIF socket actuation system included. The BeeHive204AP-AU is that programmer. The usage of BeeHive204AP-AU have also some additional advantages. The ZIF sockets on the programming modules are opened only once for each chip programming cycle, therefore double mechanical lifetime of ZIF socket is reached. Such configuration also have higher throughput (UPH) of programmer. Of course usage of programmer with ZIF socket opener is not limited to automated programming. BeeHive204AP-AU can be also used for manual programming, for more convenient operation in cases, when high-pin-count chips require to use high-opening-force ZIF socket.
Device Part Number Description now available online
- We are happy to inform you that Device Part Number Description for most of the devices supported by Elnec programmers is now available online in Elnec Device Search tool and also in the Device Lists of particular Elnec programmers. This valuable information was until now available in the software for Elnec programmers only (under menu Device --> Select Device.. --> Device info). As a result, now it is not necessary for you to run Elnec software to access this information. We hope you will enjoy this update.
- Let us inform you that Elnec programmers BeeHive204AP and BeeProg2AP (industrial versions of BeeHive204 and BeeProg2 programmers) which were developed for implementation into 3rd party automated programmers and automatic test equipments (ATE) are now available on market. The programmers have several enhancements which will be appreciated by electronics manufacturers and programming centers. In particular, dimensions of the programmers were reduced, cases are more mechanically stable and also programming modules have now different construction to reach greater mechanical stability. For easy and convenient connection of the programmers to 3rd party automated machines simple Elnec remote control application was even enhanced.
