4 Fully Parallel ISP Programmer

FlashRunner Quattro is a high-integration in-system gang programmer, based on the FlashRunner patented technology. FlashRunner Quattro is designed for programming multi-PCB panel assemblies, and is based on the FlashRunner technology.

Product information

  • Extremely fast programming (it is one of the fastest in-system programming system on the market)
  • Standalone operations (projects and code images stored on memory cards
  • Compact and robust design for production environments
Main Board
FlashRunner Quattro is composed of a mainboard which hosts the programming and demultiplexing modules, plus various connectors used to interface to the target system and host/ATE.
Available Models
FlashRunner Quattro is available in three different models, to best suit different gang programming needs.
FR04A04 4 ISP channels system (4 true parallel channels), no ISP channel demultiplexing
FR04A08 8 ISP channels system (4 parallel channels, each demultiplexable to 2 channels, with galvanic isolation)
FR04A16 16 ISP channels system (4 parallel channels, each demultiplexable to 4 channels)
Hardware features
  • 9 to 18V DC power supply input
  • Six digital I/O lines
  • Two digital I/O or analog output lines
  • Two programmable output voltages
  • One programmable clock output
  • Secure Digital memory cards (up to 2 GB)
  • 512 bytes on-board dynamic memory
  • On-board timekeeper and calendar
  • 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 upgradeable 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
  • 1 - Over the RS-232 or Ethernet connection (Host mode)
  • 2 - Or 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 cards (FAT16)
  • Controllable by any host system through a terminal utility and simple ASCII protocol
  • Unlimited projects (scripts)
  • Interface Library DLL to control the instrument from within user written applications
  • Optional Data Protection System to make the contents of the binary file to be programmed to the target device not readable (and not duplicable) by non-authorized people
  • Log files
  • Erase, blank check, program, read, verify, oscillator trimming, etc
Windows Utility Included
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.
