  • LabTool-T400 Turbo Flash Gang Programmer is four sockets PC-based Gang Programmer. It features four independent isolated modules, extremely high speed in writing flash memory chip. It supports 3.3V, 2.7V, 1.8V and 1.2V chip in both VCC and I/O without low voltage converter and handles 8/16/32 bit flash chip in different package through adapter modules, up to 128Gb flash can be support. The LabTool-T400 is an ideal programmer for customers in GSM, 3G Mobile, PDA, Internet router and others.
  • The LabTool-848XP has flexible design. If customer has special chips that not in our standard support list, we provide a special program that allow the LabTool-848XP become a customize special chip production gang programmer.

Universal Adapter for Flash chips

  • The LabTool-848XP is designed to meet your future need of high density flash chips, it uses PC's resource to support 32k-bit up to 256M-bit memory chips without upgrade the hardware. The LabTool-848XP also provides 48-pin TSOP, 44-pin PSOP, 40-pin TSOP, and 32-pin TSOP universal adapters for all the flash chips which eliminates the need to purchase multiple adapters and saves money.

Unbeatable speed through semi-concurrent programming technology

  • The LabTool-848XP's on-board intelligence reduces the system's overhead. It programs 8 pcs of 8Mb flash chips (Intel 28F800B3) within 45 seconds. An experienced operator can program thousands of high density chips per day. Further more, with the semi-concurrent programming capability, you can divide the 8 sockets into two groups and program one group of 4 chips while removing or inserting the chips of the other group simultaneously.

Fully isolated ZIF socket

  • Each socket's address, data bus, control lines, power supply and programming voltage of LabTool-848XP are isolated (> 1M ohm). Besides, each socket has independent build-in Vcc and Vpp current limit circuitry. A defective device will not affect the programming integrity of other devices.

Devices insertion and continuity checks-No mistakes!

  • The LabTool-848XP performs device insertion and continuity checking before program each device. It can detect poor pin contact, device insertion of wrong position and pin number mismatch. This function prevents the damage of expensive chip due to operator's mistake.

Auto-sensing and self programming

  • The LabTool-848XP has implemented a patented technology: after the chips are put into the ZIF sockets, LabTool-848XP will check if the chips are inserted properly and have good contact. The system has an adjustable timer so that if the poor insertion is not fixed in time, LabTool-848XP will shutdown the socket of poor contact socket and program the rest of chips automatically.

Project file "Save and Load"

  • Customer can save a project file which contains the device selection, buffer data and all programming option settings. The project file can be loaded at any time for future use. Engineer's design and settings can easily pass to production department without mistake.

Variable VCC with one or two-pass verification

  • The LabTool-848XP allow you to set the verifying voltage, e.g.,Vcc +/- 5%, Vcc+/- 10%, after chips are programmed. Vcc voltage can be 2 Volts to 7.5 Volts. The data retention is promised with this feature.
