As CPLD memory sizes increase, fast programming times are critically important. MultiWriter delivers impressive throughput improvements over convention ICT-based part programming approaches via three key innovations:
The example multi-board panel assembly illustrated at right demonstrates how MultiWriter with simultaneous part programming multiplies throughput compared to conventional one part at a time programming.
A panel consisting of four identical boards, each with three different programmable parts (labeled A, B, C) requires 12 separate programming and verification operations using a conventional in-line part programmer.
Simultaneous programming requires only a single program/verification step that covers all twelve parts.
Each red box represents an individual programming/verification operation.
MultiWriter Simultaneous Programming:
Requires just one programming/verification step since all chips are programmed and verified in a single programming sequence.
