RNS Advances Technology for In-System Programming
In-system programming module.
Charlotte, NC — RNS International's Algocraft now addresses the combined need for both fast and parallel programming. The innovative WriteNow! ISP technology, which allows reaching the theoretical programming speed for any given device on up to 8 devices at a time — drastically reduces programming times, costs, and system complexity. The WriteNow! technology has been created with speed and reliability as key features, and it uses

state-of-the-art components and techniques to give rise to the WriteNow! Series of In-System Programmers.

This technology allows for universal device support, since the vast majority of ISP protocols (such as UART, SPI, JTAG, I2C, BDM, SWD, SWIM) are implemented by the same hardware platform. Standard and custom programming algorithms are simply software components that are transferred to the instrument and run natively at the programmer's full speed.

The compact size and versatile interfacing possibilities of the programmers allow them to be conveniently and easily integrated in an ATE or programming/test fixture. Since binary codes, board parameters, programming flow — and, above all, programming intelligence — reside inside the programmer, it can work in standalone mode without being connected to a PC.

The feature-rich programmers easily allow custom programming of each single device with variable data, such as serial numbers, product vendor IDs, batch numbers, barcode data, and any other variable data. The data encryption feature, coupled with LAN connectivity, allows manufacturing companies to securely synchronize local data with distant production facilities.
