– Speed Optimization utility that automatically configures the ICP2 programmer settings for the optimal speed performance
The Gap Eliminator™ feature significantly reduces programming times by identifying and eliminating empty areas (gaps) in a HEX file prior to the programming run. A typical programmer usually allows the operator to define a single programming range, thus enabling up to two empty areas to be skipped at the beginning and/or end of the file. However, if the gap(s) are located between valid data areas, this is not an effective solution. Softlog´s Gap Eliminator™ feature solves this problem. Before a production run, it automatically analyzes the HEX file and effectively removes multiple gaps (up to five) from the Program Memory (flash) and Data Memory (EEPROM). This enables higher throughput and drives major cost savings for mass production operations. The Gap Eliminator™ is available across Softlog´s ICP2 line of programmers.
The Speed Optimization utility is a wizard that guides the user through the ICP2 programmer configuration settings to ensure optimal speed performance. These settings include Clock/Data speed, Vdd-to-Vpp delay, VddOff delay, Gap Elimination, Enhanced ICSP and more.
