MEMprog2 is the next member of new generation MS Windows (from Windows 2000 to Windows 8 32-bit and 64-bit) based ELNEC specialized programmers. Programmer is built to meet the demands of development labs and field engineers for a specialized memory programmer.

MEMprog2 supports virtually all memory types - EPROM, EEPROM, NVRAM, Flash EPROM and serial EEPROM - including low voltage types. MEMprog2 isn't only a programmer, but also a static RAM tester.

Provides very competitive price with excellent hardware design for reliable programming. Offer pleasant "value for money" in this class.

Very fast programming due to high-speed FPGA driven hardware and support of high-speed USB port.

MEMprog2 interfaces with any IBM PC compatible personal computers, running MS Windows OS, through USB (2.0 HigSpeed) port.

MEMprog2 is easy upgradeable to SmartProg2 programmer using "upgrade kit Xprog2 to SmartProg2".

40 powerful TTL pindrivers provide H/L/pull-up/pull-down and read capability for each pin of socket. Advanced pindrivers incorporate high-quality high-speed circuitry to deliver signals without overshoot or ground bounce for all supported devices. Pin drivers operate down to 1.8V so you'll be ready to program the full range of today's advanced low-voltage devices.

The programmer performs device insertion test (wrong device position in socket) and contact check (poor contact pin-to-socket) before it programs each device. These capabilities, supported by signature-byte check help prevent chip damage due to operator error.

MEMprog2 programmer performs programming verification at the marginal level of supply voltage, which, obviously, improves programming yield, and guarantees long data retention.

Various socket converters are available to handle device in PLCC, SOIC, SSOP, TSOP, TSSOP, TQFP, QFN (MLF) and other packages.

Programmer is driven by an easy-to-use control program with pull-down menus, hot keys and on-line help. Selecting of device is performed by its class, by manufacturer or simply by typing a fragment of vendor name and/or part number.

Standard device-related commands (read, blank check, program, verify, erase) are enhanced by some test functions (insertion test, signature-byte check), and some special functions (autoincrement).

All known data formats are supported. Automatic file format detection and conversion during load of file.

The rich-featured autoincrement function enables one to assign individual serial numbers to each programmed device - or simply increments a serial number, or the function enables one to read serial numbers or any programmed device identification signatures from a file.

The software also provide a many information about programmed device. As a special, the drawing of all available packages are provided. The software provide also explanation of chip labelling (the meaning of prefixes and suffixes at the chips) for each supported chip.
