Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Dataman S6 Programmer which is the successor to the world's best-selling handheld device programmer, the Dataman S4. The Dataman S6 is a USB powered universal 48-pin chip programmer with compact dimensions and minimal weight and is ideally suited to field / mobile engineers requiring fast programming speeds and the latest features.

The Dataman S6 needs no additional power supply since it draws its supply and communicates via a PC's Hi-speed USB 2.0 port. Over 14,000 programmable devices are already supported, with new devices added monthly. Intelligent pin drivers allow operation down to 1.8V in order to be able to program the full range of advanced low-voltage devices using the easy-to-use software provided (compatible with the latest operating systems including Windows 8).

Multiprogramming support allows one PC to control up to eight units, so multiple units can be used as a gang programmer. The Dataman S6 even performs device insertion and contact tests before programming each device. These capabilities, supported by overcurrent protection and signature-byte check help prevent chip damage due to operator error. A self-test capability allows diagnostics included in the software to thoroughly check the health of the programmer.

A range of socket converters are available to handle devices in a wide range of packages, including: PLCC, JLCC, SDIP, SOP, VSOP, SSOP, TSOP, TSSOP, QFP, PQFP, TQFP, VQFP, BGA, uBGA, SON, WSON, QFN (MLF), etc. Forty-eight powerful TTL FPGA-based totally reconfigurable pin-drivers provide H/L/pull-up/pull-down and read capability for each pin of the socket. The advanced pin-driver design incorporates high-quality, high-speed circuitry to deliver signals without overshoot or ground bounce for all supported devices.

The compact (5.3" x 3.5" x 0.7"), lightweight (0.7lb) Dataman S6 comes with a comprehensive 3 year parts and labor warranty, free life-time technical support, and free life-time software updates.

Designed and made in Europe by Dataman Programmers, one of the world's leading device programmer manufacturers, the Dataman S6 Programmer is available now from their USA distributor Saelig Company, Inc.
