FlashRunner I (FR01AT0)

ATE-oriented Programming Engine – RS-232 and LAN connectivity

The FlashRunner FR01AT0 is specifically designed for easy integration with all in-circuit and functional test systems, including Agilent, Teradyne,

SPEA, TRI, etc.  Its simple and versatile interface system means FlashRunner can be easily and seamlessly integrated into Automatic Test Equipment (ATE).

A relay circuitry allows each of the FlashRunner ISP lines to be independently disconnected (Galvanic isolation) from the target system, routing I/O lines coming from the ATE system to the target system instead.

Hardware Features

FlashRunner features state-of-the-art electronics to provide you with high integration flexibility in a compact footprint.

  • 9 to 24V DC power supply input (110/220V AC for the FR01PRO model);
  • Five digital I/O lines;
  • Two digital I/O or analog output lines;
  • Two programmable output voltages (0 to 15V, 0.25A and 0 to 5V, 0.5A);
  • One analog input line;
  • One programmable clock output;
  • Secure Digital memory card (up to 2 GB);
  • 512 bytes on-board dynamic memory;
  • On-board timekeeper and calendar;
  • I/O protection;
  • Optoisolated inputs for project selection;
  • Two optoisolated command inputs (START and STOP);
  • Three optoisolated status outputs (FAIL, PASS, BUSY);
  • Optoisolated RS-232/Ethernet channel.

FlashRunner's open architecture makes its firmware easily upgradable to support both new devices and new features.

Software Features

FlashRunner is set up and controlled via ASCII-based commands. FlashRunner can receive and execute commands in two ways:

  • Over the RS-232 or Ethernet connection (Host mode);
  • Via "scripts" stored in its SD card (Standalone mode).

In the first case, FlashRunner is controlled by a host system (e.g. Windows HyperTerminal); in the latter case, FlashRunner works in standalone mode and is fully autonomous.

  • Fully autonomous standalone mode thanks to its SD memory card (FAT16);
  • Controllable by any host system through a terminal utility and simple ASCII protocol;
  • Unlimited projects (scripts);
  • Log files;
  • Erase, blank check, program, read, verify, oscillator trimming, etc.

FlashRunner comes with a Windows utility that allows you to communicate with the instrument and perform the most common operations: send commands, manage SD card files, update the instrument's firmware, etc.
