Price Controls Field Programmer
| When bootloading a controller is not
possible it can still be re-programmed in
the field using a portable device. Price has
developed a small hand held programmer
that can load a new program into DDC
controls. This device must be plugged
directly into the FLASH programming jack
of the DDC controller.
The Price Field Programmer will typically
not require an external power source and
can liberate power from its target circuit
board. Indicator LED”s show the user the
status of the programming and whether it
was successful or not.
Most modern microcontrollers that run the
software program/code are good for several
thousand write or FLASH program cycles.
Therefore there is no concern of 'wearing'
out the main microcontroller with field
updates. Also the code is stored in non
volatile electrically erasable memory that
does not require power to maintain its state.
Therefore power failures will not affect any
code in the controller.
