SEGGER Flashers are a family of professional in-circuit programmers, designed to be used in service environments, prototype programming, and for mass production. They program the flash (non-volatile) memory of microcontrollers and Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) as well as attached SPI-style flashes with single data transfer buses or parallel data transfer over multiple I/O pins.
Flashers work with a PC or in stand-alone mode, connect via USB and/or Ethernet (Flasher PRO, Flasher PRO XL, Flasher Portable PLUS and Flasher ARM), and come with driver and user tools for all major platforms (Linux, macOS and Windows).
SEGGER Flashers have a standard internal memory of 128 megabytes to store firmware images and programming configurations. They are designed to handle any flash programming requirements. Where larger images need to be programmed, the Flasher PRO XL comes into play. With its huge memory capacity, it can also program target systems running large footprint OSes such as Android, Linux, Windows IoT.
With the Flasher Hub-12 in combination with the Flasher Compact that is ideal for integration into space-limited production environments, like production rigs or automated test equipment (ATE), and the Flasher ATE with its mainboard and programming modules, SEGGER offers two full-featured gang programming systems for parallel in-system programming (ISP). SEGGER also provides a comprehensive ecosystem convering several security issues like Authorized Flashing, protection of intellectual property (IP), TELP, and much more with SEGGERS's Flasher Secure.
- Includes software and firmware updates
- Includes use on all supported target devices
- No additional licenses required. No hidden costs. No future costs.
SEGGER Flashers support writing to a wide range of flash memories using either the programming interface or the debug interface of the CPU. The list of supported manufacturers, families and devices and SoCs includes support for tens of thousands of devices in hundreds of device families with billions of devices programmed.
The “almost-anything” flash programmer
The Flasher PRO is SEGGER’s full-featured, in-circuit, universal flash programmer for microcontrollers and SoCs as well as (Q)SPI flashes.
Flasher PRO XL
The universal flash programmer for huge images
The Flasher PRO XL is a Flasher PRO with extra-large memory capacity, designed to program huge images for use during the production programming process.
The space-efficient programmer
The Flasher Compact is a space-efficient twin to the Flasher PRO, primarily designed for installation into production rigs or automated test equipment (ATE) where no ethernet connection is required.
The flash programmer for microcontrollers on ARM core
The Flasher ARM is SEGGER’s full-featured, in-circuit, flash programmer specifically limited to ARM-based microcontrollers.
Flasher Portable PLUS
The battery-powered portable service programmer
The Flasher Portable PLUS is a handheld, battery-driven, stand alone flash programmer, designed to meet the need for an extremely portable, production-grade flash programmer for in-field firmware updates.
The secure flash programmer
The Flasher Secure is a mass production programming system, capable of protecting the vendor’s IP regardless of the production site.
The Modular System for Parallel Programming
The Flasher ATE uses a communication main board that distributes the commands received from an ATE, ICT or a similar automated production handler system to the attached programming modules.
High-volume gang programming at maximum speed
The Flasher Hub-12 is a highly scalable solution for gang programming. It allows connection of up to 12 Flasher Compacts.
