Emulation Technology' new adapter supports Atmel DataFlash devices packaged in the new chip-scale ball grid array (CBGA) packages for both programming and prototyping applications.

Delivering two applications in one adapter, the new device is used to convert a memory programmer DIP socket to a CBGA zero insertion force (ZIF) socket for circuit programming or it can house the CBGA in a prototype application to help debug programmable code.

The ZIF socket on top of the adapter allows the user to quickly remove and replace the DataFlash memory after making programming code changes, eliminating the need to solder and desolder the chip for each program change. Users can remove the DataFlash memory, reprogram it and re-insert it into the development board without soldering.

The Atmel DataFlash AT45DB041B (4M) and AT45DB081B (8M) are serial interface Flash memory devices for voice, image, program code and other data-storage dependant applications. This new package has 14 balls, an array size of 3-by-5mm, and a package body size of 4.5-by- 7-by-1.4mm.

The fully assembled CBGA programming/prototyping adapter (part number AS-14-08-01BG-3) is priced at $189 each. The CBGA Zero Insertion Force socket (part number S-MBG-3X5-014-A) is available for $124 each.
