What’s New for All Programming Systems

1. Corrected a minor display problem where transparent bands appeared above and below the toolbar when a newer version of the Microsoft Common Controls component is installed.
What's New in All FlashCORE Programming Systems

1. Sped-up job creation time on FlashCORE systems for certain cases where the data file is smaller than the device size and Absolute Binary data format is used (other conditions also apply).

2. Fixed a bug in the JEDEC translator (91) which caused the fusemap checksum calculation to be incorrect if there was no ‘F’ field present in the JEDEC file.

3. Removed a test that compared the number of fuses in the JEDEC file against the QF field because some JEDEC files do not contain all of the fuses for the device.

I got the new power supply from DataI/O. I tested and calibrated the complete system with my 3 TOPs.

The LPT-Cable is a 1:1 25pin cable with 2 male connectors

After the complete test and calibration with the „OTESTNT.EXE“ program, the optima system works with all 3 TOPs fine.

The Power supply from DataI/O is a universal power supply (See „Universal Power Supply.jpg“) for different systems. The universal power supply has 3 voltages:+5V, +12V and -5V. The Optima system only need +5V and +12V (See „Optima connector.jpg“). If you connect the universal power supply with the Optima system, you will damage the unit. For the correct supply, i have to use a adapter cable (See „Adapter Cable for Optima.jpg“). This cable only connect the +5V and +12V with the Optima, the -5V is not connected.
