    LabProg-48LV is universal programmer that supports all kinds of types and silicon technologies of programmable devices. Powerful pin-driver provides logic level, pull-up/pull-down, clock, ground, one VCC supply and two programming supply and, certainly read, on each of all 48 pins independently. This advanced design give it the ability to program almost every programmable device in DIL up to 48 pins without adapter or family-specific module. Support for todays and tomorows programmable devices gives engineers the freedom to choose the optimum device for new design.

    LabProg-48LV isn't only programmer, but also tester of TTL/CMOS logic ICs and memories. Furthermore, it allows to generate of user-definable test pattern sequences. LabProg-48LV is true universal and true low-cost programmer providing the best "value for money" in today's market place.

    LabProg-48LV interfaces with the IBM PC, AT to Pentium Pro, portable or desktop personal computers. Programmers allows you to directly connect to your PC through any standard parallel (printer) port (no special interface card needed). The LabProg-48LV control program also supports bidirectional protocols of the PC's printer port. Consequently and due special protocol is communication between PC and LabProg-48LV fast and very reliable. The programming of EPROM 27C010 takes about 20 second - is faster than most its competitors. As a result, when used in production this one-socket-programmer waits for an operator, and not the other way round.

    The programmer has on-board intelligence, comprise of powerful microcontroller system and support devices. LabProg-48LV has been designed for multitasking operating systems and is able to perform time-critical programming sequences independently of the PC operating system status and without being interropted by any another parallel process running on the PC. Consequently, LabProg-48LV works without any problem on systems running Windows 3.x, Windows 95/98 and Windows NT/2000.

    The programmer performs device insertion test (wrong or backward position) and contact check (poor contact pin-to-socket) before it programs each device. These capabilities, supported by current limit protection and signature-byte check help prevent chip damage due to operator error.

    Built-in protection circuits eliminate damage of programmed device due to mains supply fluctuations, communication error or if PC is frozen. In event of such errors microcontroller in programmer performs, independently on the PC, exactly specified sequence of steps, so that programmed target device remains intact. Programmer's hardware offer enough resources for self-test, that control program is any time be able to check pindrivers, present and correct level of all voltages, check the timing and communication between programmer and PC.

    An optimally designed printed circuit minimizes negative programming effects at the socket (such as groundbouncing, supply voltage instability). All the inputs of the LabProg-48LV programmer, including the ZIF socket, connection to PC and power supply input, are protected against ESD to protect the programmer and programmed circuits against damage due ESD damage.

    LabProg-48LV performs programming verification at the marginal level of supply voltage, which, obviously, improves programming yield, and guarantees long data retention.

    The LabProg-48LV programmer is driven by an easy-to-use control program with pull-down menu, hot keys and on-line help. You can select target device by its class, by manufacturer or simply by typing a fragment of vendor name and/or part number. Besides the standard device-related commands (read, blank check, program, verify, erase) have been implemented some test functions (insertion test, signature-byte check), and some special functions (autoincrement, production mode - start immediately after insertion of chip into socket). The control program permits data manipulation within the buffer and between the buffer and files and perform automatic file format detection and conversion.

    The rich-featured auto-increment function of LabProg-48LV enables you to assign individual serial numbers to each programmed device. This function simply increments a serial number in the buffer each time a new device is inserted. Furthermore, the function enables the operator to read serial numbers and/or any programmed device identification signatures from a file.

    Free software updates are available by download.

    News in the customer support is Keep-Current and AlgOR services.

    • Keep-Current service means, that Elnec ships of a latest version of programmer software and and updated user documentation (Keep-Current package) to customer . A Keep-Current service is your hassle-free guarantee that you are doing the highest quality programming on Elnec programmers, at minimal cost.
    • AlgOR (Algorithm On Request) service give to the user tool, with which can to influence on amount and types programmed devices as need.

    Various programming adapters are available for the LabProg-48LV to handle device in PLCC, SOIC, PSOP, and TSOP, TQFP and other packages. Software controlled pin-swapping capability together with universal converters are what give the LabProg-48LV the ability to program the target device in any package type. For example just one DIL44/PLCC44 will allow the LabProg-48LV to handle all devices in PLCC44 from current device list. The majority of devices with more as 48 pin can be programmed through an adapter with simple pin interconnection only. Since the interconnection is provided in the "adapters.txt" file, the user can make himself his adapter.

    It is important to remember that in most cases new devices require only a software update since the LabProg-48LV has 48 true pin drivers, which can perform as required under program control. With our prompt service new device can be added to the current list of supported devices within hours!

    Advanced design of the LabProg-48LV programmer, including protective circuits, original brand components, and careful manufacturing and burning allows us to provide a three-year warranty on parts and labor for the programmer (limited 25 000-cycle warranty on ZIF socket).
