SuperPro IS01 vs. Equinox PPM4
|SuperPro IS01||Equinox PPM4 Programmer|
|Devices supported||10,183+ devices supported. Xeltek updates software and device algorithm regularly. User can download the current software version free of charge at Download Center. *Contact Xeltek for customized algorithm requests.||607 devices. It is a family specific device programmer which can program certain families of ICs. And Not all device families are free to program.
For Atmel AT91SAM7 - ARM7 JTAG Device Library License is required which is priced at $775.50
For 24xxx - Serial I2C EEPROM Memory license is required which is priced at $775.50
|Number of manufacturers supported||188+||15|
|Programming Interface||I2C, SPI, CAN, UART, BDM, MW, JTAG, or any other serial port.||SPI, JTAG, I2C , SCI, BDM, PDI interfaces|
|Low Voltage Support||1.2V (It is Lowest in the industry).||1.8V|
|User Requested Device Update||Yes (1)|
|Standalone Operation||Yes (2)||User has to purchase Standalone Project Upload Utility Upgrade priced at $89.95|
|Calibration data and serial numbers||Inbuilt in the software||It is not free. It costs for $329.9 production software upgrade+ script builder license upgrade requires $412.45|
|Warranty support||2 years||1 Year|
|SD card slot||Yes, users can use up to 2GB flash cards to store multiple project files.||No, fix internal memory of 8 MB|
|Data Security||Data security is maintained by removing the SD card at the end of each operation from the programmer.||No|
|Multi Programming||In stand-alone production operation, units may be added as many as needed without being connected to a PC. 12 SuperPro IS01 programmers can be connected to a PC for multiprogramming by using a USB hub.||An RS-485 Converter is required to implement multi-channel programming on Equinox PPM4 ISP programmers . User needs to covert PC serial port signals (RS232) to RS485 in order to do multi programming|
|Programming Speed||Programming speed adjustable for complicated application environments brought by user target board, length of ISP cable etc|
This is a basic cost only. When configured for production operation, cost may reach many thousands of dollars.
- Xeltek updates new devices onto current programmers regularly and also upon customer request on SPIS01. *Contact Xeltek for more details.
- Customized algorithm will be ready in as littlle as one to two weeks.
- Stand-alone operation: Repeat programming and verification is performed without a PC attached. The programmer is completely self-contained with add-on memory (option), keyboard, and LCD display for volume production operation.
- Does not require an operator who has to have knowledge of operating a PC thus saving on the cost of the operator.
- Saves cost of a PC.
- Data integrity is insured, as there is no chance that an operator may corrupt data in the PC.
- Data security is insured, as the plug-in compact flash card may be removed and stored away at the end of each day.
- Seamless transition from engineering to production is ensured, as the project file is generated in engineering, downloaded onto a compact flash card and transferred to manufacturing.
- SD card used for Stand-alone mode operation.
