SOFi SP-8F Programmer

In addition to the functions of the SP8-A and SP8-B the SP8-F has the function of offline programming. The built-in 128Mbit data memory can store programming files for the user. The SP8-F can achieve different kinds of field programming without connection to a computer but does require a 5VDC @ 500mA (min) power source connected. A 5VDC @ 1A USB plugpack is supplied with the programmer. It is easy to operate and supports mass programming.
Both the SP8-B and SP8-F are suitable for mass programming of various serial memories in factories, and you can flexibly choose the types and the number of programmers you need.
Supports 7234 devices and growing.
See the SP-8F Device List here.

The SOFI SP8 series are professional programmers specially designed for programming serial FLASH/EEPROM/SPI memories.
With built-in 32-bit high-speed processors and USB2.0 communication interfaces they support high-speed programming of nearly all 24/25/93/BR90 chips.
These programmers each have a unique ISP online programming function and support more chips with continuous software upgrades.
You will be impressed by the professional software and the ultra high speed programming achieved by these affordable programmers.
Compared with high cost universal programmers and one-to-multiple special purpose ones, the SOFi range are more convenient and flexible, and thus greatly reduce costs for labor and equipment purchase.

Software supports WinXP, Vista and WIn7 (32bit and 64bit). Download the software here and run in Demo mode to check it out.

The whole SP8 series has the function of intelligent pin detection.
Pin detection can effectively avoid failure or low success of programming caused by oxidation or misplacement of chips or problems from the adapters, and thus improves the efficiency of programming.
A picture depicting the contact status of the pins like poor contact, fine contact, not used or ignored will be shown if the programmer detects any problems.

The programmers have over-current and short circuit protection.
Effectively protects programmers from damage due to misplaced chips (wrong position or direction), or wrong types of chips, or short circuit of chips or adapters.
ISP interfaces also have protection function against over-current and short circuit, and automatically detect the supply conflicts of target boards (or target chips).
