FlashRunner III (FR03)

Entry level Manufacturer Specific In-System Programmer

The FlashRunner III is the entry level model from the FlashRunner range and like FlashRunner II is tailored to support devices of a single chosen manufacturer.  Although the same high speed capacity associated with all of the FlashRunner range is present certain functionality is absent.

Hardware Features

FlashRunner features state-of-the-art electronics and provides you with high integration flexibility in a small footprint.

  • 7.5V DC power supply input;
  • Five digital I/O lines;
  • Two digital I/O or analog output lines;
  • One programmable output voltage (0 to 5.5V, 0.5A);
  • One programmable clock output;
  • Secure Digital memory card (up to 2 GB);
  • I/O protection;
  • One command inputs (START);
  • Three status outputs (FAIL, PASS, BUSY);
  • RS-232 channel.

FlashRunner's open architecture makes its firmware easily upgradable to support 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 (Host mode);
  • Via a "script" 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);
  • Controllable by any host system through a terminal utility and simple ASCII protocol;
  • 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.
