In-System Device Programmer

The CPI2-B1 device programmer belongs to the ChipProg-ISP2 family of Phyton in-system production device programmers, designed for use with ATE, ICT, programming fixtures and automated handlers. It can also be used for development, and in stand-alone mode for field service. CPI2-B1 can be used for programming microcontrollers, flash memory and programmable logical devices.

Use of some CPI2-B1 programming features requires purchasing additional software licenses:

  • The CPI2-ACI license is tied to the programmer's hardware and enables remote control via DLL and other options.
  • CPI2-D-XXXX target-specific Device Driver Library licenses enable programming support for a certain group of devices.

The price of a device programmer is the total of prices of hardware and optional licenses: CPI2-ACI and target-specific Device Driver Library license(s).

Prices for online ordering and references are published in the catalog.

Major Features

  • Designed around extremely fast CPI2 programming engine - see the timing.
  • Connects to PC via High Speed USB 2.0, 100 Mbit/s Ethernet or RS232 (optional) interfaces.
  • Stand-alone or PC-hosted operation.
  • Has a SD card for storing up to 64 projects
  • Use of the SD card enables fast project switching and speeds up stand-alone operations.
  • Up to 72 programmers can be concurrently controlled by a single PC.
  • Supports multiple ISP interfaces: JTAG, JTAG chain, SWD, SPI, SCI, I2C, UART, and more.
  • Supports ISP for devices with Vcc voltages in the range of 1.2V to 5.5V.
  • Programmable Vpp power supply output from 1.5V to 15V.
  • Power source for target board adjustable from 1.2 to 5.5V @ 350 mA.
  • Programs devices at distances as long as 10 ft (3m) - actual distance is target specific.

Specification Details

Areas of Application

  • Integration with National Instruments® LabVIEW™ Software.
  • Controllable by Automated Test Equipment (ATE), In-Circuit Test System (ICT), fixtures and handlers.
  • Application Control Interface (DLL).
  • Command line mode.
  • On-the-fly control utility allows modification of commands in a running programmer without stopping its operation.
  • Script language for mastering user-defined scripts.
  • Programming can be initiated manually or automatically by connecting to target device or closing the fixture lid.
Project and Configuration Management
  • Unlimited number of projects can be created, saved, edited, and easily accessed to start a programming session
  • Internal SD card stores up to 64 projects for fast project switching.
  • Project files are securely protected against unauthorized access and modification.
  • Guaranteed data integrity by CRC calculation for each data transfer to/from PC or ATE system or SD card.
  • Ability to store and retrieve interface configurations, colors, fonts, sounds, hot keys, and other settings.
  • The battery-powered option allows preloading up to four projects to internal SD card. Desired project image can later be chosen by pressing a button on the battery compartment, and is indicated by corresponding LED.
Power Source Options
  • External power adapter 5V@1A.
  • Can be powered by PC's USB communication port.
  • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery (optional).
Power for Targets
  • In a process of programming allows powering target equipment from external sources.
  • When powered from an external power adapter (5V@1A), CPI2-B1 can provide Vcc (1.2 to 5.5V @ up to 350mA) and Vpp (1.2 to 15V @ up to 80mA) voltages for the target equipment.
Software Features
  • Supports loading and saving files in all popular formats.
  • Unlimited number of data buffers can be open simultaneously.
  • Arithmetic operations on data blocks in buffers.
  • Programmable serialization of target devices.
  • Multiple serialization algorithms, including script-controlled ones.
  • Allows writing of user-defined signatures and data blocks into target devices.
  • Several different algorithms of checksum calculation.
  • Special DLL for user-defined checksum calculation.
  • Stores logs of programming sessions with time-stamping.
  • Easy to use GUI editor for device-specific settings and algorithm parameters, such as fuses, lock bits, protected sectors, boot loader vectors, clock frequency, etc.
  • Featured with a link opening connection diagram for currently selected device right from the GUI.
  • Comprehensive self-test and diagnostic procedures.
Target Interface Signals
  • Equipped with a 20-pin "TARGET" connector and supplied with a 10" ribbon cable with compatible 20-pin headers.
  • Ten target-specific logic inputs/outputs with 1.2 to 5.5V levels, individually programmable as I/O, GND or Vcc.
  • For stable programming the above ten signal lines are interspersed with GND wires.
  • Two inputs/outputs individually programmable as TTL logic I/O, GND, or Vcc or Vpp.
Signals for Interfacing with External Equipment
  • TTL-level input and output logic signals for interfacing with external equipment are available at the 20-pin "CONTROL" connector. The signals include:
    • start/stop signal;
    • output status signals: BUSY, GOOD and ERROR;
    • six inputs for selection of one of the 64 pre-loaded projects;
    • one low-current TTL logic voltage output that can be used for driving the above project selection inputs;
    • three GND lines.
    • Use of CPI2-ISO board insures galvanic isolation of all control signals on the "CONTROL" connector.
    • When using CPI2-BB option, the connector provides power for charging the battery but other "CONTROL" signals become unavailable for use.
