IQ Introduces the Prodigy Suite of Automatic In-System Microcontroller Device Programmers

May 30, 2017

Intrinsic Quality is pleased to announce several new options for the programming of flash devices for your manufacturing process: IQ’s Suite of highly flexible Prodigy Microcontroller Programming Stations, including IQ’s new entry level Prodigy In-System Programmer; and the complete line of PC-based Prodigy and Paragon models.

It’s time to reimagine your programming process. Are your techs randomly shuffling your random and obsolete computers and peripherals to create a variety of programming tools for a solitary task in your test process? IQ’s Prodigy Suite has affordable solutions to upgrade your flash programming for the long term. All our micocontroller device programmers feature IQ’s brilliant design integrated with SMH’s FlashRunner in-system programmers.

SMH IQ Prodigy1011 pngOur Prodigy 1011 is a stand-alone microcontroller based programmer (no well) that is set up for an external harness or fixture. The 1011 is our response to the need for an affordable production ready, high speed, entry level programming station. Based on the SMH FlashRunner FR01ENG, Prodigy 1011 is the perfect answer to low volume high mix manufacturers who previously could not justify a commercial programming station. The Prodigy 1011 is remarkably capabable of adapting to multiple devices, protocols and various vendors for long-term functionality. Adaptability: Auto selection of part number is based on a 5 bit ID provided by the fixture or ATE OR for higher volume applications, the 1011 connects readily to simple interchangeable bed of nail fixtures. In ATE applications, Prodigy easily connects to the ATE fixture with auto detect remote operation. Prodigy 1011’s  throughput is impressive, as production can move rapidly with minimized operator error and lightning fast programming times. View all of IQ’s Prodigy 1011 features here.

ProdigyBlog5-30 IQ‘s Prodigy 2000 single or dual well programmer stations are desogmed fpr easo;u interchangeable fixtures and include Intrinsic Quality‘s expert device programming services. All programming parameters are included as firmware revision, power, and signal levels are automatically verified and set up. The Prodigy 2111 and further models are available in an amazing variety of configurations that include single or dual well and multiple channel capabilities.
