Saelig Introduces GALEP-5 Universal Device Programmer from Conitec

GALEP-5 is a new, diminutive, palm-sized programmer with a 60,000 device output. Its high speed allows it to double as a fast production programmer in ganged arrays, while its JTAG debugging capabilities enable GALEP-5 to be used for microcontroller development.

GALEP-5 is a universal programmer for a wide range of device types: EPROM, EEPROM, FLASH memory, serial EEPROM, NV-RAM, LPC, FPGA, PLD, EPLD, GAL, PALCE, PIC, Microcontroller (MCU). More than 60,000 device algorithms are currently supported. Additionally, GALEP's JTAG player can program SVF/JAM data into all existing and future devices that have a JTAG port.

Ultra-compact, USB-poweredGALEP-5 Device Programmer fits into a jacket pocket and weighs less than 200g, tiny compared with the 3 - 4 lbs of most other programmers.  Versatile GALEP-5 is normally powered via USB from a PC, but it has two additional power options - rechargeable internal batteries, or conventional line power plug – useful when it needs more than 500 mA for older NMOS devices.

GALEP-5 has been designed for speed. An internal 200 MIPS ARM-9 processor handles the data transfer, while a 50,000 gate FPGA controls the pin drivers and accelerates programming algorithms by setting up device-dependent state machines and UARTs. A custom-designed pin-driver IC implemented to all pins on the socket guarantees optimal signal quality at the output pins. This design innovation permits an extremely small size and very low power consumption.

This level of hardware acceleration makes GALEP-5 one of the fastest device programmers available. For instance, a MB91F467 Fujitsu Microcontroller (8MB) requires only 19 seconds for a serial program/verify cycle; a 256MB NOR Flash (28F256P30) is programmed and verified in 170 seconds. Internal 64 MB of RAM provides data storage, permitting transfer of data once only in order to program multiple devices.
