Fairport, New York (February 24, 2015) Vanteon Corporation, an electronic systems design and engineering company, has recently made a new embedded code programming tool available to its expanding client base. The tool, which goes by the name SPI Stick v3, offers a unique ability to program the embedded processors, DSPs, and FPGAs on electronic PCBs during manufacturing or field updates.
The SPI Stick, a keychain sized device, downloads the desired embedded device code, referred to as the â€śfirmwareâ€ť, via a mini-USB port connected to a PC. The device is then easily carried to the manufacturing floor, field site, or anywhere the target system PC Board is located. The SPI Stick is simply plugged into a port which implements the SPI bus interface on the target board, and a fully automated process of uploading the new or updated firmware is initiated.
Feedback received from Vanteonâ€™s clients using SPI Stick is that it is the simplest, easiest and least expensive way to load code or perform a field upgrade of their electronic products that they have experienced.
Nick Oddo, Sr. Project Manager at Vanteon, states, â€śWe are always looking for ways to make the sometimes complex technical details of delivering or upgrading embedded code simple and worry-free for our clients. SPI Stick is just the ticket to provide a low cost, no-hassle experience.â€ť
