WriteBefore

Key Features

  • Based on Algocraft WriteNow! technology
  • Excellent performance
  • Supports FLASH microcontrollers & serial memories
  • Implementation into available 3rd party automated programmers and ATE machines
  • Up to Eight devices programmable at once
  • Device-Specific Programming Socket

Applications

  • Off-board programming
  • On-board programming for standalone stations

Socket Adapter

Socket Adapters are printed circuit boards which connect the programming sites to the base unit. The Socket Adapter (SA) includes the appropriate socket (DIP, SDIP, SOIC, QFP, BGA) and the appropriate electrical connections for programming a specific device.

Hardware Features

  • Universal and upgradable base unit
  • High-speed I/O
  • High-speed, parallel programming
  • Memorizes data on a built-in memory card
  • Programmable I/O voltage (1.6-5.5V)
  • Standalone operations or host controlled
  • Supports multiple package (DIP, SOIC, TQFP, BGA, etc)
  • 8-Sites Programming Socket
  • START button, PASS/FAILS LEDs

Software Features

  • Project Wizard: creates and debugs a programming Project in fews guided steps very easily
  • File Merge: combines different programming data sources (boot, application, variable data, etc.) in a single output file
  • File Manager: allows you to see Write!BEFORE file structure and to transfer files with the PC in an easily way

Advantages

  • 8 devices at once: Write!BEFORE programs up to 8 devices at once, reducing drastically programming times and costs
  • Stand-Alone Mode: Write!BEFORE programmer works also without PC connection. The operator effects by pressing START button
  • Specialized on MCU supports: Unlike some of our competitors, Write!BEFORE is specialised in MCU programming
  • High-Speed Programming: Write!BEFORE performances allow to reach out theoretical programming speed fpr any given device
  • LAN interface: Write!BEFORE allows to send data production through Internet from a local R&D laboratory directly to any other Write!BEFORE instrument in the world
  • Data cryption: Intellectual Property Protection by crypting the image file
  • Variable Data Programming: Write!BEFORE allows to personalize/customize each single device with variable data, such as Serial Numbers, MAC address, barcode data, etc..
  • ATE interface: Easy implementation into automated programmers and ATE machines by using simple ASCII remote commands
  • Technical Support: Algocraft offers support for technical inquiries forthwith
  • World Wide Service: Our selected distribution network covers more than 20 countries
