The PTC-04 programmer was designed for efficient, precise calibration of the Melexis families of programmable ICs.
The programmer is designed to be easily adapted to a standard PC and to an application module to allow calibration of programmable sensor ICs within the operating environment. The PTC-04 programmer contains its own programmable power supply and measurement circuitry. The programmer is similar to a standard EEPROM programmer, but adds many special features such as 16-bit voltage and current measurement capability, and a configuration options that will accommodate users from the prototyping phase directly into production. An IBM compatible PC is required (not included) to load software to the programmer and control the functions of the programmer. Communication is done through a standard RS-232 null modem cable to a COM port of the PC or via USB. The PC requires no custom configuration, allowing the programmer to be used with any PC with a COM port speed of 115.2kbs or a standard USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 interface.
