An advanced smartcard programmer that directly supports all popular PIC-based and AVR-based (Fun) cards. The hardware based phoenix interface makes it compatible with most third party phoenix software. This combination makes it a very powerful hybrid programmer with great compatibility.
Infinity USB Phoenix is connected to and powersupplied by a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port. Just one standard A-B USB-cable is needed (no need for an additional DC-adaptor).
Being USB1.1 compliant and working on both USB1.1 and USB2.0 controllers, ensures future compatibility.
When not in use, Infinity USB Phoenix enters a powerdown state using only 0.06 Watt (0.5kWh/year).
Phoenix/Smartmouse mode is possible by using the built in Phoenix/Smartmouse hardware. Existing 3rd party software compatibility is ensured, as a standard serial/COMport is used. In Phoenix/Smartmouse mode, the Infinity USB Phoenix is powered by the USBport, while communicating over the COMport.
In standard Infinity USB mode only the USB cable is used for both communication and powersupply.
Phoenix/Smartmouse modes are easily changed (pressing a single button in software), and both 3.58MHz, 3.68MHz and 6.00MHz can be selected, aswell as Phoenix or Smartmouse mode.
Infinity USB Phoenix programs most popular smartcards on the market.
For a complete list of all supported smartcards, please see the product-matrix.
Further cards/combinations of CPU/EEPROM will be added when new cards are available. The generic hardware/firmware ensures that only a software download will be needed for adding most new cards.
Infinity USB Phoenix is based on a 24MHz RISC processor, and has some of the fastest programming times of any programmer on the market.
The following are times measured while programming and verifying entire cards.
Goldcard 12 seconds
Silvercard 58 seconds
JupiterCard 14 seconds
Funcard 48 seconds
FunCard ATmega161 50 seconds
These are maximum times. The programming algorithms are optimized in any way possible, ensuring as short programming times as possible. Hexfiles which only takes up half the space of a card, takes only half the time to program.
Software runs under Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows XP64, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
It has been developed with ease of use in mind, and automatically detects which type of card is inserted. Furthermore it has an advanced detection algorithm, for detecting unknown cards.
