Programming speed

Note. This times strongly depend on PC speed, LPT port type and operating system free resources. Therefore values of two different PC configurations are given for comparison.

Device Operation Mode Time
27C010 programming and verify in ZIF 29 sec.
AT29C040A programming and verify in ZIF 41 sec.
AM29F040 programming and verify in ZIF 95 sec.
PIC16C67 programming and verify in ZIF 10 sec.
PIC18F452 programming and verify in ZIF 7 sec.
AT89C52 programming and verify in ZIF 17 sec.
PIC16F876A programming and verify ISP 5 sec.
PIC12C508 programming and verify ISP 3 sec.
Conditions: P4, 2.4 GHz, USB 2.0 high speed, Windows XP.
The programming times are preliminary, the improvement is in progress.
