OVERVIEW

ChipMax2 is a high-speed universal device programmer for USB 2.0 PC-interface. It programs a 64Mbit flash memory in 42 seconds. This is a true low-price production oriented system. The ChipMax2 meets the demands of today’s programming solution for lab applications.

With high throughput and maximum flexibility , you won’t have to worry about a production bottleneck keeping your design off the market. As many as eight ChipMax2 programmers can be connected together, controlled by a single PC with no loss of programming speed, reliability or performance. Each programming site is completely independent of the rest. With independent programming sites, a faulty site can be removed and programming can be continued. Each site is an independent universal programmer, and the system will completely program the first device by the time the operator has inserted the last device.

ChipMax2 is the state-of-art universal programmer offers you the most advanced programming facilities with the most user friendly interface. Since each pin is software addressable, new part numbers are being added to the list of supported devices through software upgrades. No new hardware to buy ! It will prove to be one of the most reliable and long lasting instruments. The ChipMax2 supports the latest device technologies, regardless of package type.

Maxloader features ChipMax2 programmers in the multiple-programming mode for high volume production purpose. The Gang Program Mode (Concurrent Programming Mode) can program any device and the fault-tolerant architecture allows the programmer to continue production even if one of the programmers should fail.
