Hello,

I use TL866CS flash programmer.
I'm looking for new one, but I would like to ask, is any programmer with auto detection function.

I bought a Reveltronic programmer which I have used just a couple of times but I forget whether it auto-detects the chip. Here's the user manual so have a read: http://www.reveltronics.com/downloads/u ... manual.pdf

On one chip where I had a question, I got a fast reply to my e-mail to support, so I was pleased with that. You do have to set the voltage yourself, so be aware of that. it's also very fast!

You may not want to rely on this function even when it has it. Reading up on it seems that it is not foolproof:
My Dataman programmer tells me the following:

"The programmer applies a high voltage to the appropriate pins on the socket. Don't insert device into the socket that isn't an EPROM or FLASH, it may be damaged. This service is applicable only for devices in DIL package or any other non-DIL package using 1:1 wired package convertor. The control program only support this time EPROM's and FLASH with 28 and 32 pins.
We don't recommend to apply this function to 2764, 27128 EPROM. Most of them haven't ID.
