10/01/2011 — Algocraft’s WriteNow! Series of Parallel In-System Programmers has been selected by Test & Measurement World as finalist for the Best In Test award, in the ATE/Production Test category.
Algocraft's WriteNow! Multiple In-System Programmer provides customers with a powerful way to perform in-system programming of devices such as microcontrollers and memories directly on the production line. WriteNow! programmers are universal ISP tools that can program up to eight devices simultaneously, at the maximum theoretical speed for any given device, and are especially designed for the production environment.
The compact size and versatile interfaces of WriteNow! programmers allow them to be conveniently and easily integrated into automatic test equipment and programming and testing fixtures. The data-encryption feature allows manufacturers to securely synchronize local data with distant production facilities. Other features, such as a programmable power supply output, USB and LAN interfacing, and I/O barrier on ISP lines, make the WriteNow! programmers a powerful and cost-effective solution for every in-system programming need.
Inaugurated in 1991, the Test & Measurement World awards program honors excellence and innovation in test, measurement, and inspection products.
