Alliance Support Partners (ASP) launches ISP program-development service
Feb 16, 2007
Alliance Support Partners (ASP) now offers cost-effective ISP program-development services to OEMs, CMs, and other third-party service providers who need to program ISP devices on in-circuit or functional testers.
ASP provides several levels of fixed-price contract services to users of board-test equipment, ranging from integration of an existing device algorithm with an ICT or functional test program to development of a new device algorithm. Turnkey service can include optional off-shore manufacturing support.
The ISP program-development services are available to users of most PC-based test systems and programming stations, including industry-leading test platforms from Agilent, CheckSum, GenRad, Teradyne, and others.
The ASP device algorithm library covers all of the most common Serial Flash/EEPROM devices such as those from Microchip, Atmel, and STMicro. The ASP device library also includes algorithms for complex microprocessors containing on-board Flash/EEPROM, including the TMS470, MPC5XX, and HC9S12.
ASP's extensive library supports popular programming interfaces such as Nexus, JTAG, BDM, PIC, DPI, I2C, Microwire, SPI, RS232, and others. ASP is experienced at providing solutions to difficult configurations such as programming external Flash via an on-board microprocessor.
