Software architecture

MultiWriter’s ability to program ISP devices simultaneously rests on its patented architecture that allows it to program up to 384 serial ISP devices per board or multi-up panel at high speed.

Designed for low cost and high signal speeds

MultiWriter hardware consists of two elements:

  • MultiWriter Controller
  • Buffer board(s)–one for each ISP device to be programmed.

The controller and as many buffer boards as required are mounted inside the test bed-of-nails test fixture. This cost-effective design eliminates the requirement to modify the test system or install costly special-purpose channel cards.

Short wire lengths between the buffer boards and the device being programmed/verified is ideal for dealing with increasing programming speeds.
