Universal pin-driver - No adapter required for DIL devices

  • The LabTool-48UXP features universal pin driver, each pin can supply four different voltage, ground, it also can be configurable as TTL high/low levels with pull-high/pull-low, high-speed clock and high impedance. This advanced pin design lets you program any DIL device of up to 48 pins without needing an adapter.

Unbeatable programming speed

  • The LabTool-48UXP's on-board intelligence reduces system overhead to a minimum. The LabTool-48UXP has 100% more performance then its predecessor product in program the high density flash chip, it can program a Intel 32 Mbit flash chip in less then 60 seconds.

Device Operation Time
Intel 28F320C3B blank-check, programming, verify 108,6 sec.
AMD 29DL323DB blank-check, programming, verify 128,1 sec.

The LabTool-48UXP is much faster than its competitors, making it much more productive with today's high density, multi-megabit memory devices.

Technological innovation and performance leaderchip

Device insertion and contact checks - No mistakes!

  • The LabTool-48UXP performs device insertion and contact checks before it programs each device. It can detect poor pin contact and devices inserted upside down or in the wrong position. This function protects your pocketbook by preventing expensive chip damage due to operator error.

EPROM and Flash memory ID detection and Search

  • Many EPROM and Flash memories have a build-in device ID and manufacturer ID. The LabTool-48UXP can read the device's ID by press hot key to detect the ID and compare its database and determined the chips correct vendor and product number. This feature is especially useful with secondhand chips and devices that have had their part number accidentally (or intentionally) removed (this function only applied to 28 pin or 32 pin EPROM and Flash).

Auto-sensing and self-programming

  • To meet mass-production requirements the LabTool-48UXP has implemented new patented technology in both its hardware and software. After entering the Mass-production Mode, the production line operator inserts a device into the ZIF socket. An LED on the LabTool-48UXP indicates the device is ready and the operator simply removes it and replaces it with a new one. No formal training is necessary adding flexibility and saving time and money. In addition, the LabTool-48UXP's auto-sensing feature ensures the device has been inserted correctly and then automatically programs the device. Furthermore, in the mass-production mode the system keyboard is automatically disabled preventing the operator from making any inadvertent mistakes.

Project file save and load

  • User can create and save a project file which contains device selection, buffer data and all the programming set-up options, this project file can be called upon at any time for future use without having to go through the setting up procedure again, your design file can easily pass to production department without making any mistake.

Serialization function

  • If your memory devices need individual serial numbers with different increment sequence and initial value, the LabTool-48UXP has an Auto Increment function. This simply increments the serial numbers in the buffer each time a new device is inserted. This saves time and money.

User-selectable verify voltage, one or two-pass verification

  • The LabTool-48UXP lets you select the verify voltage after you have programmed the device, e.g., Vcc, Vcc 5%, Vcc 10%. The Vcc voltage can be 2.0V to 6.5V. This feature ensures that your device has been programmed properly, preventing failures due to programming errors and ensuring data retention.

Non-DIL device support through versatile converters

  • The LabTool-48UXP's universal pin driver capability lets it program all 48-pin DIL devices, including all single-chip Micro-controllers, without DIL-to-DIL adapters. However there are many different packages beside DIL package, such as PLCC, SOP, TSOP, QFP and SDIP. We have developed over 100 different adapters to support these special-package devices.

3 Year warranty and software update via web

  • The LabTool-48UXP has additional safety features such as a built-in current limit and pin continuity check function. This prevents damage from faulty chips during the programming cycle. As a result we have provided a 3 year warranty on parts and labor for the LabTool-48UXP(limited 50,000-cycle warranty on ZIF socket). Free software updates are also available via web at www.aec.com.tw.

Universal 44-pin PLCC, QFP, PSOP and TQFP adapter supports 44-pin chips

  • The universal pin driver on the LabTool-48UXP enables you to support all 44-pin chips such as EPLD, EPROM, Flash, EPLD and Micro-controllers. You need only one 44-pin universal adapter which eliminates the need to buy multiple adapters and saves money. Moreover, different package devices within 48 pins will only require one adapter.

Pin swapping table-Build the adapter yourself

  • The LabTool-48UXP provides all adapter pin swapping tables you need (no active components) via web at www.aec.com.tw/products/adapters.pdf. You can simply download the relevant table and build the adapters by yourself if necessary, this will arrive saving valuable time and money.

Low voltage chip support

  • The LabTool-48UXP support 2.0V ~ 5.0V logic level input/output, and it can supply 2.0V~21V analog voltage (such as VCC). Support lower then 2.7V low voltage chip such as 1.8V also possible by special low voltage adapter on top of its 48 pin ZIF socket.
