Product Overview: ICP2 is the flagship product in our line of high-speed,
production-grade in-circuit programmers for Microchip
microcontrollers. Combining robust performance with proven
reliability, ICP2 is the ideal solution for high throughput, non-stop assembly line operations. Using our breakthrough Secure Programming technology, ICP2 ensures the highest level of protection for your intellectual property during the manufacturing process.
Utilizing patent-pending technology, this optional software feature provides several layers of protection that dramatically reduce the risk of unauthorized reconstruction of hex files. These include strong hex file encryption, a counter that ensures the number of programmed devices does not exceed a pre-defined value, and a secure buffer of "invisible" hex data stored in ICP2 protected memory.
Reflecting our focus and expertise in working with Microchip, ICP2 is specifically designed for full compatibility with all Microchip microcontrollers and peripheral components. Provided with the Softlog GUI, ICP2 also seamlessly integrates with MPLAB® IDE via plug-in.
Final test machine (FTM) functions in DLL allow the ICP2 software to easily integrate with test
equipment, working in either standalone mode or driven by a host system. Adaptable to bed-of-nails
and other types of ATEs, ICP2 helps you preserve your investment in test equipment.
We understand the importance of zero downtime on your assembly line. Softlog´s technical support
engineers are available round-the-clock to provide you with immediate solutions to operational and
maintenance issues which may arise.
