SEEprog is a small, universal programmer of all types of serial EEPROMs in 8-pin packages. SEEprog can program serial EEPROM with I2C (24Cxx), Microwire (93Cxx) and SPI (25Cxx) interfaces including Low Voltage devices at 3.3V. The programmer is equipped with a ZIF socket for 300mil DIL packages. 

SEEprog interfaces with the IBM PC, AT to Pentium Pro, portable or desktop personal computers. The programmer connects directly to your PC through any standard parallel (printer) port - no special interface card is needed.

The SEEprog is controlled by easy-to-use software with pull-down menus, hot keys and on-line help. You can select your device by classes, by manufacturers or simply type device vendor's name and part number. The standard device-related commands
(read, blank check, program, verify, erase) are provided. The program facilitates the use of the buffer and files, including automatic file format detection and conversion.

Free software updates are available by download from ELNEC.

The SEEprog can use DIL to SOIC socket converters.

Special services: Keep-Current and AlgOR

Keep-Current service means, that ELNEC ships the latest version of programmer software and updated user documentation (Keep-Current package) to the customer. A Keep-Current service is your hassle-free guarantee that you are doing the highest quality programming on ELNEC programmers, at minimal cost. 

AlgOR (Algorithm On Request) service provides a method for the user to request support for a new device or for a new feature in the control software.
