A New High Speed Gang Flashing Solution for STM32MP1 series MPUs
Elprotronic has just released an exciting new product. The GangFlasher is a high speed in-circuit flash programming solution for MCU/MPU based target boards. This solution can flash up to 8 targets at 40 Mbytes/s each using only onboard USB and is now available for purchase and trial evaluation.
If you are deploying Linux on your product, or sizable embedded applications with images in the hundreds of MBs or even GBs then you must be tired of waiting 10 minutes to flash your board. Now, it will take you just seconds and not one single board but up to 8 boards at the same high speed. Elprotronic’s GangFlasher is the right programming solution for you, it will save your most valuable commodity: Time.
“With much higher programming and flashing speed, STM32MP1 users can deploy gigabyte-sized application code seamlessly. Elprotronic’s high-speed flashing adds a valuable solution to the STM32MP1 ecosystem for a wide range of applications with increasing memory footprint,” said Laurent Desseignes, Ecosystem Marketing Director, STMicroelectronics
