Xeltek vs. System General
A SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON
Which is the best automated programmer?
Xeltek and SystemGeneral are both manufacturers of Automated device programmers.
But when you dig a little deeper, there are significant differences
that make Xeltek stand out as a System General alternative.
How we stack up on features
3 Advanced Features You Can't Get With System General
BUILT IN 144 PIN DRIVER
Xeltek universal programmers are equipped with 144-pin universal pin drivers to accommodate large pin count devices. One universal adapter accommodates all devices with the same package type.
XELTEK vs System General
Many automated programmers in market such as System General AP720 are expensive 4-pickup nozzle and 4 to 32 socket models.
Multi-nozzle and multi-socket models are used when programming large size devices taking more than a minute to program.
Xeltek SuperBOT-3 also falls in this category. If your device size is small, chances are they will program within a few seconds.
SuperBOT-2 is ideal for such an application.
The system will run 24/7 at full speed (1200 units per hour) without having to wait for the device programming to finish.
Microchip devices are generally small with small memory capacity, which is ideal to program with a single nozzle programmer such as SuperBot-2.
4 nozzle system such as AP720 becomes complex, high cost and requires more maintenance. It is more suitable for high density devices such as Nand and eMMC which takes very long time to program. When programming large size devices, more nozzles will reduce idle time for the pickup. But, since most Microchip devices will program within 10 sec. using 4 nozzle system is an overkill.
In AP720, there will be high cost of the 4nozzle system, but without the corresponding benefit.

"Thank you for you excellent customer service! I have to be honest, it is hard to find these days" - Cathy Hall, Cascade Laser Corporation
"Fast turnaround on software to add support for the flash chip we needed" - Matt Ollayos, Apple Inc.
"We were stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to get last minute support on a device. We needed support right away and while other vendors had a longer lead time, Xeltek was able to upgrade an adapter they had on hand for a quick delivery. Thank you so much!" - Jane, Arrow
