An add-on card to the standard personal computer through the serial port

The Topview Programmer A is an add-on card to the standard personal computer through the serial port.
The Topview Programmer A maintains separate buffer areas for selected device’s flash memory, Program Encryption Table, User parameter Table, Serial EEPROM in the programming environment. Initially you need to transfer your target program code/data from the files into this buffer and then program the selected device with these buffer contents.

When you keep your program code in the flash buffer, you can edit, modify them as per your requirement. Even you can visualize the buffer contents as the lines of program. This facility enables you to incorporate small modifications without taking the code to the original development tools.

The Programmer also supports programming flash memory using ICP and ISP modes. You can program the target device even after soldering the same in the target hardware.

Features of the programmer:

Supports more than 75 popular and widely available Philips Microcontrollers.
Also supports around 100 EEPROM devices from both Atmel and Microchip.
Single 40pin ZIF socket to accommodate DIP devices.
Devices with operating voltages 3.3V and 5V can be programmed.
Facility also available to program through ICP (for LPC9XX series) and ISP mode after soldering the device in the target board using a 10pin cable. This cable is madeavailable along with the programmer.
Verification at various voltages can be done as per Philips specification.
