ICP2-GANG is the high-volume model in our line of high-speed, production-grade in-circuit programmers for Microchip microcontrollers. Incorporating four independent channels and expandable to up to 64 channels in a daisy chain configuration, ICP2-GANG is ideal for non-stop, mass production operations. Using our breakthrough Secure Programming technology, ICP2-GANG ensures the highest level of protection for your intellectual property during the manufacturing process.
Utilizing patent-pending technology, this optional software feature provides several layers of protection that dramatically reduce the risk of unauthorized reconstruction of hex files. These include strong hex file encryption, a counter that ensures the number of programmed devices does not exceed a pre-defined value, and a secure buffer of “invisible” hex data stored in ICP2-GANG protected memory.
Flexible and expandable up to 64 channels:
Reflecting our focus and expertise in working with Microchip, ICP2-GANG is specifically designed for full compatibility with all Microchip microcontrollers and peripheral components. Provided with the Softlog GUI, ICP2 GANG also seamlessly integrates with MPLAB® IDE via plug-in.
Final test machine (FTM) functions in DLL allow the ICP2-GANG software to easily integrate with test equipment, working in either standalone mode or driven by a host system. Adaptable to bed-of-nails and other types of ATEs, ICP2-GANG helps you preserve your investment in test equipment.
We understand the importance of zero downtime on your assembly line. Softlog’s technical support engineers are available round-the-clock to provide you with immediate solutions to operational and maintenance issues which may arise.
