Segger in Germany has developed a flash programmer with 2Gbytes of storage to program large images and/or hold multiple images for use during the production programming process.
The Flasher PRO XL flash programmer can be used with systems running on Android, Linux, Windows CE, or other large operating systems, as well as deeply embedded systems that require a lot of data to be programmed. Where necessary, memory can be extended further using an industrial-grade microSD card to cover even the largest of systems.
“Consumers have come to expect appliances, industrial equipment, vehicle dashboards, etc. to have sophisticated graphical user interfaces,” says Ivo Geilenbrügge, Managing Director of SEGGER. “The Flasher PRO XL can program and verify these massive images at blistering speed, keeping assembly lines running at peak efficiency. This production programmer removes image-size limitations once and for all.”
The Flasher PRO XL is a Flasher PRO with extra-large and extendable memory. Like all members of the Flasher Family, it can be used in stand-alone or PC-based mode. In terms of speed, the Flasher PRO XL comes close to the theoretical minimum programming time for the target hardware. This is especially important for the huge images it is designed to program.
The flash programmer systems are professional in-circuit programmers designed for use in mass production and service environments. They program the non-volatile memories of microcontrollers and Systems-on-a-Chip (SoCs) as well as (Q)SPI flashes.
All the systems come with the setup and control software for Linux, macOS, and Windows. Software and firmware updates are included. Similarly, use on all target devices currently supported, and on any that will be added, is also included and no additional licenses are required.
