User Feedback

The unit is working fine. The software interface supplied with this is very user friendly and powerful.

I should congratulate Frontline Electronics for supplying such a fine product.

I could see the professional touch in all respects (right from documents on software to PCB finish).


Your product is superb. I appreciate the workmanship and the choice of electronic components for the product.

Really you and your engineers have done a good job for the embedded system designers.

The programmer is really an engineer's choice for its price, size and ease of using.

Subrata Bhattacharya,

Graphic user interface facility is good compared to other programmers.

Colour syntax gives better effect in viewing the program code.

Program read option from   microcontroller is useful. It also makes us feel convenient since it generates equivalent assembly code.

Programmer is compact and easy to use. the provision of reset key is useful since it is not necessary to switch off the power supply as in case of other programmers.

The user manual provides sufficient exposure to handle programmer efficiently and use the software to maximum extent.

The cost is cheap compared to other programmers. It is 50% less than compared to others.

Few chips, which were rejected by other programmers, have been able to be programmed by this programmer.

Edit EEPROM buffer, Single byte programmer option is one of its kind.

Protecting device, device options, auto-programming mode, read EEPROM, clear EEPROM, all are good.

Dr.Raja Paul Perinbam,

Very Good hardware. Very user friendly software.

GUI facility: Up-to date techniques.

Ease of use: Menu driven and self-explanatory. I will recommend this to my colleagues and friends.
