SuperPro Software Key Features

Xeltek Superpro software comes with powerful features in order to simplify operations, improve efficiency and avoid mistakes by untrained operators. Following are some key software features:

1) Project File:

The project file stores preparations before programming. Users could also restore and save work environment. The project file includes device type, buffer data, operation option settings, configuration bit settings and batch commands. Project files may be password protected to increase security and reliability when operated by untrained operators.

2) Batch (Auto) command:

The Auto function organizes different functions into a sequential group (erase, blank check, program, verify and protect). Functions are executed in sequential order similar to a batch command.

3) Production Mode:

Once a chip is inserted correctly, the programmer automatically starts batch command of erase, blank check, program and verify. Auto chip detection saves time and increases efficiency.

4) Dynamic buffer (Auto –Increment):

Some applications require serial numbers (product sequence number and the MAC address) to be written in the chip. SuperPro software provides standard serialization method (Auto Increment) but user-defined serial number generation is also available upon request.

5) Log files, production statistics:

A log file could be used to save operation information before exiting the program. Log files can also be used to facilitate quality tracking.

6) Intellectual property protection:

Password settings available in both PC and stand-alone mode.

7) XPlayer:

SuperPro IS01 and SuperPro 7000 software support JAM / STAPLE Player and Direct C. XPlayer is a special programming tool available with SuperPro IS01 for programming CPLD series chips produced by ACTEL (now Microsemi) and ALTERA . As long as the customer provides corresponding STP or JAM files, the corresponding device can be programmed. STP or JAM files can be generated using design tools such as ISE and Quartus II.

8) Auto recognition of File Types:

Support almost all kinds of known file formats including file formats with automatic recognition functions: Binary, Intel (linear & segmented) Hex, Motorola S, Tektronix (linear & segmented), JEDEC, POF, etc.

9) Factory Mode:

This mode is designed for factory volume production. To prevent operation errors from destroying chips and wrong data written to the chip, SuperPro will operate in the Auto function mode.

The administrator can set a password to prevent unauthorized access to the system. If there is a password requirement to access the system, users would also need to provide a password in order to exit the system.
