Features

GENERAL
  • BeeHive4+ is extremely fast universal 4x 48-pindrive concurrent multiprogramming system designed for high volume production programming with minimal operator effort. The chips are programmed at near theoretical maximum programming speed.
  • BeeHive4+ consists of four independent isolated universal programming modules, based on the BeeProg+ programmer hardware. Therefore the sockets can run asynchronously (concurrent programming mode). Each programming module starts programming at the moment the chip is detected to be inserted in the socket properly - independently on the status of other programming modules. It result, three programming modules works while you replace the programmed chip at the fourth.
  • Modular construction of hardware - the programming modules works independently - allows for continuing operation when a part of the circuit becomes inoperable. It also makes service quick and easy.
  • Hands-free operation: asynchronous and concurrent operation allows a chip to begin programming immediately upon insertion of a chip. The operator merely removes the finished chip and inserts a new chip. Operator training is therefore minimized.
  • Supports all kinds of types and silicon technologies of today and tomorrow programmable devices without family-specific module. You can be sure the next devices support require the software update and (if necessary) simple package convertor (programming adapter), therefore the ownership cost are minimized.
  • Using built-in in-circuit serial programming (ISP) connector, the programmer is able to program ISP capable chips in circuit.
  • Provides very competitive price coupled with excellent hardware design for reliable programming. Probably best "value for money"programmer in this class.
  • Very fast programming due to high-speed FPGA driven hardware and execution of time-critical routines inside of the programmer. At least fast than competitors in this category, for many chips much faster than most competitors. As a result, when used in production this programmer waits for an operator, and not the other way round.
  • BeeHive4+ interfaces with the IBM PC compatible, portable or desktop personal computers through USB (2.0) port.
  • Banana jack for ESD wrist straps connection to easy-to-implement the ESD protection control.
HARDWARE (valid for each programming module)
  • 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 today's advanced low-voltage devices.
  • Each programming module 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 overcurrent protection and signature-byte check help prevent chip damage due to operator error.
  • The selftest capability allow to run diagnostic part of software to thoroughly check the health of the each programming module.
  • Built-in protection circuits eliminate damage of the programming module and/or programmed device due to environment or operator failure. All ZIF socket pins inputs and all pins of ISP conncetor of BeeHive4+ programmer are protected against ESD up to 15kV.
  • BeeHive4+ programmer performs programming verification at the marginal level of supply voltage, which, obviously, improves programming yield, and guarantees long data retention.
  • Various programming adapters are available to handle device in PLCC, SOIC, PSOP, SSOP, TSOP, TSSOP, TQFP, QFN (MLF), SDIP, BGA and other packages.
SOFTWARE (production mode control)
  • This part of the software is focused to the easy monitoring of high-volume production operations.
  • Operator-friendly control software combines many powerful functions with ease of use. Graphic user interface provide overview of all important activities result without burden of operator with non-important details.

    BeeProgMC_SW

  • There is used a project file to control the BeeHive4+ multiprogramming system. Project file contains user data, chip programming setup information, chip configuration data, auto programming command sequence, etc. Therefore the operator error is minimized, because the project file is normally created and proofed by engineering and then given to the operator. The optional protected mode can be set for project file to avoid a unwanted changes of the project file.
  • Each chip may be programmed with different data such as serial number, configuration and calibration information.
SOFTWARE (programming modules driver, engineering mode control)
  • This part of the software is focused to the quick and easy preparation of the project file for usage in the production mode control software.
  • Each programming module is driven by an easy-to-use control program with pull-down menu, hot keys and on-line help. Selecting of device is performed by its class, by manufacturer or simply by typing a fragment of vendor name and/or part number. It is the same years-proven software, as is used for all other Elnec single-site programmers.

    PG4UW

  • Standard device-related commands (read, blank check, program, verify, erase) are boosted by some test functions (insertion test, connection check, signature-byte check), and some special functions (autoincrement, production mode - start immediately after insertion of chip into socket).
  • All known data formats are supported. Automatic file format detection and conversion during loading of file. There is possible to use Jam files (JEDEC standard JESD-71) and VME files
  • The rich-featured auto-increment function enables one to assign individual serial numbers to each programmed device - or simply increments a serial number, or the function enables one to read serial numbers or any programmed device identification signatures from a file.
  • The software also provide a many information about programmed device. As a special, the drawings of all available packages are provided. The software provide also explanation of chip labelling (the meaning of prefixes and suffixes at the chips) for each supported chip.
CARE FOR THE CUSTOMERS
  • It is important to remember, that a support of most of the new devices requires only a software update, because the BeeHive4+ is based on the truly universal (BeeProg+) programmer.

Programming speed

Notes:
  • It is important to know, we always use random numbers data pattern for programming speed testing. Some our competitors use "sparse" data pattern, where only few non-blank data are programmed or are there are used data with only few 0 bits (FE, EF, etc.). This cheating approach can "decrease" programming time considerable. If you plan to compare, ask always which pattern they use.
  • The programming speed depends on PC speed only slightly.
