EMULATION TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES ADAPTER SUPPORT FOR ATMEL® AT93C56/66 DEVICES
Innovative adapter allows users to program two devices at the same time
SANTA CLARA, Calif, Sept. 8, 2004—Emulation Technology (ET), announced today
a new Programming Adapter specifically designed to support the needs of
engineers designing with the Atmel® AT93C56/66 devices in the new dBGA2
ET’s new dBGA2 Programming Adapter accommodates the Atmel 3-wire serial
EEPROM (Electrically Erasable and Programmable Read-only Memory),
low-density devices which are manufactured for a broad range of consumer
products and portable industrial and commercial applications requiring
low-power and low-voltage operation. The dBGA2 is the smallest laminate BGA
for serial EEPROM.
Program Two Devices in Parallel
The dBGA2’s miniature size presents unique challenges to electronic
designers and others implementing and programming designs with the
processors. ET provides direct programming support and minimizes the risks
associated with programming small form-factor packaged devices such as the
- The adapter’s dual socket allows a user to program two devices at same
- The top-loading, burn-in socket provides safe, quick and easy access for
manual or automated programming.
- The socket’s spring actuating guide clips keep devices secure during
Adapter Covers More than One Application
Since the dBGA2 is wired 1-to-1 and is available with male DIP screw
machine pins, it can double as a test fixture for circuit test, prescreen,
failure analysis and prototyping applications. The male DIP base adapter
base is easily hand soldered or wire wrapped to a PCB for quick and easy
Price and Availability
The dBGA2 Programming Adapters are priced at $175.00, and the socket alone
for $145.00 (quantities 1-5 pieces) Delivery in 10-15 days.
