RELTRONICS has released the Phyton universal chip programmer, supporting programmable devices such as parallel and serial EPROM and EEPROM, embedded microcontrollers with programmable memory (Flash, OTP), and PAL/PALCE/GAL/ PEEL/PLD devices.
It has a small, fast, affordable chip burner. It supports many popular PLDs, PALs, GALs and EPLDs and has a 40-pin ZIF DIP socket for all DIP devices.
Adaptors are available for PLCC, SOIC, QFP, TSOP, SSOP and BGA. The system is compatible with many third-party adaptors and it has a standard parallel port interface to PC. It has an advanced self-diagnostic test routine, a full-screen multi-buffer editor and a fine Vpp setting for burning hard-to-program samples and obsolete devices.
It can carry out operations in buffers with hexadecimal, binary, decimal and ASCII and can advance block operations and carry out incorrect device insertion checks.
