Octoprog software allows user to encrypt and download the hex-file from PC to Gang Programmer using USB connection. Only if the encryption key in programmer and key used for hex-file encryption matches then code will be successfully programmed. This help the user to share the hex-file (encrypted) with EMS provider as the encrypted hex file can be used only with the respective programmer. In addition to this Octoprog allows the user to set the number of targets to be programmed, once target count is reached programmer will wipe out its internal memory and won’t program any further targets.
The Octoprog Gang programmer is a RL78/R8C Family device programmer that can program up to eight identical devices at the same time. The Octoprog Gang Programmer connects to a host PC using USB and provides flexible programming options that allow the user to fully customize the process. The Octoprog gang programmer provides an economical and reliable means of programming a wide range of RL78/R8C microcontroller units (MCUs). It is designed with a versatile hardware platform to support programming of different MCUs. The Octoprog gang programmer can be used to program eight devices simultaneously by copying data held in an internal flash memory to the MCUs’ internal memory.
