SOFI SP8 series is professional programmers specially for programming serial FLASH/EEPROM/SPI memories, with built-in 32-bit high-speed processors and USB2.0 communication interfaces. It supports high-speed programming of nearly all 24/25/93/BR90 chips. In the number of supportive serial memories and the writing speed, it greatly exceeds most general and similar special programmers that cost over 1000 RMB. It has a unique function of ISP online programming and supports more chips with continuous software upgrade. With exquisite shells made through professional mould opening and with advanced software/hardware design, SP8 series overtakes other similar products in both exterior and inner quality.
SP8 programmers have SP8-A, SP8-B and SP8-F three types. SP8 is special programmers with the highest speed for programming serial memories (Note 1), the most types of supportive devices (Note 2) and the highest performance/price ratio in China. It fully satisfies the needs of home appliance and digit maintenance, engineering research and development, and mass production in factories
SP8-A is popular edition: It applies to personnel of home appliance and digit maintenance. With the cost of only 1xx RMB, it is the first version of special programmers for professional serial memories. It far exceeds other products at the same price level, and has uncommon performance/price ratio.
SP8-B is mass production edition: It supports programming of online mass production, automatically detects whether the chips are placed well and then automatically starts programming. You can connect several programmers to one computer for synchronous and asynchronous high-speed programming. Plug and write. No synchronous waiting. Top speed and high efficiency.
SP8-F is offline edition: In addition to the functions of the two types above, SP8-F has the function of offline programming. The built-in 128Mbit data memories can store programming files for the user. SP8-F can achieve different kinds of field programming without connection to computers. It operates easy and you can achieve mass programming. SP8-B and SP8-F are very suitable for mass programming of various serial memories in factories, and you can flexibly choose the types and the number of programmers as you need. Compared with expensive general programmers and one-to-multiple special ones, they are more convenient and flexible, and thus greatly reduce costs for labor and equipment purchase.
Note 1: Take 8M-bit EN25T80 as an example, SP8-A: read–1.24S, write–5.44S; Superpro 580U: read–4.15S, write-9.31S
Note 2: List of supportive devices (Up to July 22, 2011, SP8-B/F supports over 4150 devices, and the number is updating. If there is one device not supported, please ask us to add it. With supportive hardware and complete materials, it usually takes two work days.)

Performance and Characters
·USB2.0 communication interfaces (real USB interfaces, not USB to serial ports or simulated USB ports)
·Exquisite shells customized with opening moulds (cannot be caught by public-mould shells on the market), small (size: 103x71x23mm), and convenient to use and carry
·SP8 Fully supports WinXP/Vista/Win7, and perfectly combines 32-/64-bit systems
·Has built-in 32-bit high-speed processors, designed specially for serial memories, achieving high-speed and appropriate programming, and has the highest programming speed in China
·Supports nearly all 93/24/25/BR90 memories, and supports more chips through software upgrade.
·Unique ISP download ports and 10PIN color ISP download cable. On-board patch chips (such as main-board BIOS with SPI interface) can be directly connected to be programming.
·Standard 40Pin locking beds with zero insertion force, applicable to wide/narrow chips and general adapters
·Supports contact detection for pins, and improves reliability of programming
·Perfect over-current and ESD protections, and protection against accidental damages of programmers and computer USB ports
·With mass production programming, it automatically detects the position of chips and then starts programming
·Supports mass asynchronous programming via connecting several programmers to one computer. Plug and write. No synchronous waiting. Top speed and high efficiency
·You can choose offline programming: built-in 128Mbit data memories achieve different kinds of field programming without connection to a computer, and LED and buzzer present auditory signals of success or failure
·It operates easy and you can perform mass programming
·Supports low-voltage (3.3V) and 5V chips
·Provides self-detection for devices
Note: These functions are designed according to specific types, and only SP8-F has all these functions. For details, please refer to the attached correlation table for types.
High-speed programming
·SP8 is currently the programmers with the highest programming speed in the industry, even quicker than general programmers and similar special programmers which cost over 1000 RMB.
(Take 8M-bit EN25T80 as an example, SP8-A: read-1.24S, write-5.44S; Superpro 580U: read-4.15S, write-9.31S)
·Through built-in high-speed processors and special hardware design, SP8 realizes high-speed and reliable programming, especially for serial FLASH and EEPROM.
·Arithmetic optimizations for different chips

Intelligent pin detection
·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.
·It presents via pictures the contact information of pins, like bad contact, fine contact, not used, and ignored
Supports online/offline high-speed mass production
