FlashRunner Cube is a high-integration in-system gang programmer, based on the FlashRunner technology. FlashRunner Cube is designed for programming multi-PCB panel assemblies. This means:

  • Extremely fast programming (it is one of the fastest in-system programming system on the market)
  • Standalone operations (projects and code images stored on memory cards)
  • Compact and robust design for production environments
  • Up to eight fully parallel in-system programming channels (for identical devices)
  • Optoisolated communication channels and low level interface
  • Easy integration in programming lines (ATE, ICT, test fixtures)
  • Universal and fully upgradable

Hardware Features:
FlashRunner features state-of-the-art electronics to provide you with high integration flexibility in a compact footprint:

  • 12 to 25V DC power supply input
  • Seven digital I/O lines
  • One programmable output power voltage
  • One programmable clock output
  • Secure Digital memory cards (up to 2 GB)
  • On-board dynamic memory
  • On-board timekeeper and calendar
  • Optoisolated inputs for project selection
  • Optoisolated command inputs (START, START_ENA and STOP)
  • Three optoisolated status outputs (FAIL, PASS, BUSY)
  • Optoisolated RS-232/Ethernet channel

FlashRunner Cube open architecture makes its firmware easily upgradable to support both new devices and new features.

Software Features:
FlashRunner Cube is set up and controlled via ASCII-based commands. FlashRunner can receive and execute commands in two ways:

  • Over the RS-232 or Ethernet connection (Host mode);
    Via “scripts” stored in its SD card (Standalone mode).

In the first case, FlashRunner Cube is controlled by a host system; in the latter case, FlashRunner Cube works in standalone mode and is fully autonomous.

  • Fully autonomous standalone mode thanks to its SD memory cards
  • Controllable by any host system through a terminal utility and simple ASCII protocol
  • Unlimited projects (scripts)
  • Interface Library DLL to control the instrument from within user written applications
  • Optional Data Protection System to make the contents of the binary file to be programmed to the target device not readable (and not duplicable) by non-authorized people
  • Erase, blank check, program, read, verify, oscillator trimming, etc.
  • Friendly set-up user interface (windows platform)
  • Supports microcontrollers, serial memories and direct programming of parallel memories (eMMC, NAND and NOR)

FlashRunner comes with a Windows utility that allows you to communicate with the instrument and perform the most common operations: send commands, manage SD card files, update the instrument’s firmware, etc.

Available models:
FlashRunner Cube is available in three different models, to best suit different gang programming needs:

  • FRC_GP_02 2 ISP channels
  • FRC_GP_04 4 ISP channels
  • FRC_GP_08 8 ISP channels
