VP-998 Universal Programmer with 48-pin ZIF Socket
The VP-998 is the latest top of the range Wellon Universal Programmer, with support for over 83,000 devices, including PIC microcontrollers, EEPROMs, dsPIC, AVR and other microcontrollers like AT89, plus PLDs and flash memory.
It also includes an ISP adapter (WL-ISP-U1) for programming devices in-circuit.
It is very fast because it has USB 2.0 interface for Hi-speed data transfer.
