Atmel Corp. has announced the availability of the second generation of FLexible In-system Programmer (FLIP), its enhanced PC-based FLexible In-system Programmer software.

Compared with similar C51 In-System Programmer tools available on the market, the product offers several additional features and advantages which improve the flexibility, power and user-friendliness of the company's Flash C51 devices In-system Programming.

FLIP software runs on both Windows 9x/Me/NT/2000/XP and Linux platforms. It supports the in-system programming (ISP) of Atmel Flash C51 microcontrollers through various popular communication interfaces, including RS232, USB and CAN links, programming 32KB in a few seconds.

The product features a set of DLLs (Dynamic Load Library) that allow the user to call Atmel ISP high level functions from their own PC-applications, without having to know the details of the ISP protocols.

By executing the Atmel on-chip bootloader, the user can update the code or data in the Flash and EEPROM in-application. This self-programming capability allows last minute changes during the development process; programming on the production line for volume applications, avoiding redundant inventory; field upgrades and remote diagnosis in after sales service.

The DOS-executable version of FLIP (BatchISP) may be launched from an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), such as Keil ?Vision2, which allows the developer to write code, compile, link, produce and download HEX files to the target device without leaving the IDE.
