Gang Programmer Is a Thing Of The Past (IC Programmer)
Why a Stand-Alone Programmer?
“Gang programming” is a common term in the non-volatile memory industry. In fact, ideas associated with gang programming are large programming capacity, concurrent programming, ideal for production environment and low cost production… Traditional gang programming is done using 4,8, or 16 socket gang programmers. But what happens when manufacturing requirement changes? Buy another gang programmer? Xeltek Cluster programming solution allows use of 1-n(15) stand-alone programmers to meet with flexible volume programming requirement.
As project requirements change, cluster models have the flexibility of 1 to 15+ units setup, allowing for easy expansion as the production need grows.
Cluster operation does away with a PC attached, thus saving the cost of a PC, increase reliability, and also save cost of an expensive PC operator. There is no need to pay full price for a set number of socket programmer to program IC chips in parallel.
Gang programmer shuts the production down when the entire unit has to be sent back for service. With the Xeltek Cluster solution, only the defective unit is sent back for service and production continues! Cost of service is cheaper and disruption is minimal.
A PC attached in the production environment can cause various problems. Programming reliability is reduced due to PC susceptibility to external environment, data may be compromised, and operator mistake can induce programming quality problem. CF cards with important codes can easily be removed and stored in a safe area.
