SmartProg2 is next member of new generation of Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP based ELNEC universal programmers. Programmer is built to meet the demands of the development labs and field engineers for universal, but portable programmer.

SmartProg2 is a small, fast and powerful programmer of all kinds of programmable devices. Using build-in in-circuit serial programming (ISP) connector the programmer is able to program ISP capable chips in-circuit. SmartProg isn't only programmer, but also SRAM tester.

Provides very competitive price but excellent hardware design for reliable programming. Nice "value for money" in this class.

Very fast programming due to high-speed FPGA driven hardware and USB 2.0 full speed port.

SmartProg2 interfaces with the IBM compatible PC, portable or desktop personal computers through USB port, what is important for new, LPT-port-less computers..

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.

SmartProg 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.

The software provide a full information for ISP implementation: Description of ISP connector pins for currently selected chip, recommended target design around in-circuit programmed chip and other necessary information.

It is important to remember that a support most of the new devices requires only a software update due to the SmartProg2 hardware. With our prompt service you can have a new device added to the list of supported devices within hours! See AlgOR (Algorithm On Request) service for details.

Free software updates are available by download from our WEB site.

Additional Service

  • Keep Current - service means, that ELNEC send off the latest version of programmer software and updated user documentation (Keep-Current package) to customer . A Keep-Current service is your hassle-free guarantee that you are doing the highest quality programming on ELNEC programmers, at minimal cost.
  • AlgOR - (Algorithm On Request) service gives to the user tool to influence to amount and types of programmed devices as needed.

Advanced design of the SmartProg programmer and careful manufacturing and burning allows us to provide a three-year warranty on parts and labor for the programmer (limited 25 000-cycle warranty on ZIF socket).
