Galep-5P

Semi-Automatic Flash Programming Station

GALEP-5P is a flashing station for multi-board in-system programming. It connects board panels directly through a pressure unit with a customized needle adapter. Equipped with up to 10 high speed programmer modules, it can process up to 1000 boards per hour - at a fraction of the cost of a chip programming robot. GALEP-5P is the ideal solution for after-placement programming and medium series production.

FEATURES

Programming modules are compatible to the GALEP-5D programmer and contain the same CPU kernel and programming hardware.

Through its Ethernet connector, GALEP-5P can be controlled from any PC in the network. Serial numbers or calibration/test data can be stored in a database on the network PC.

Operation is automatical and requires only manually opening and closing the pressure unit for replacing the boards.

Pass/fail marks can be applied to individual boards with a motorized board marker.

Programming, calibration, and board test is controlled by the GalepX script language. The language makes it easy to implement additional customer-specific functions.

AFTER PLACEMENT PROGRAMMING ADVANTAGES

Lean solution with low cost for small and medium series production.

Fast production cycles due to simultaneous multi-board programming.

Devices are programmed just-in-time. No inventory management of pre-programmed devices.

New software versions don't require reprogramming or replacement of pre-programmed devices.

No risk of heat-induced damage to programmed data in the soldering process, especially with flash devices.

Devices can be on-board tested and calibrated.
