BeeProg3/BeeProg2/BeeProg2C Multiprogramming Mode allows to connect up to 8 programmers to one host PC. In such configuration all programmers can work simultaneously and independently – can even program different chips if necessary. This mode is the way for extension of existing facilities based on single-site programmers or for growing up the programming system with the growth of production volumes.
