The revolutionary technology which introduces the concept of production efficiency, evolving from a programming tool to a Programming System


FlashRunner 2.0 technology is revolutionary not only for its performances in terms of fast programming speed, but also for the technological leap that it represents, introducing the concept of production efficiency.

SMH is exclusively focused on technology for the programming of microcontrollers and memories: its decennial experience led to the evolution from a simple programming tool to an actual programming system which finalizes and completes FlashRunner’s performance.

The production environment continuously seeks efficiency, productivity and quality. These necessities are covered from FlashRunner 2.0 family which, thanks to its high flexibility and universality, offers a complete range of products from 1 to 32 independent and parallel channels.

A complete series of peripheral features allow a deep evolution, which is similar to the changes that have involved the information and communication technology (phone and TV): namely the migration from a simple tool that guarantees its basic function to a complete and interconnected smart system.

The key-concepts that summarize FlashRunner 2.0 technology are:


Production control panel
Programming times and statistics
Interface libraries
Connections pinout


Project wizard
File transfer management

Firmware and software updates

Windows, Linux and Mac compatible GUI software interface


Encrypted FRB files to avoid binary hacking
Dump and compare features of all channels

LOG file and Production Report file

User Permission Management

Tracking of programming cycles number

Errors with language descriptions

Software Features

FlashRunner 2.0 is based on Linux Embedded operating system, which relays on a real time scheduler and a full featured hardware abstraction layer.
FlashRunner 2.0 is featured with software interfacing libraries which enables customers to achieve a full integration inside their software and across different frameworks, as LabView© and Visual C/C++.

A new, friendly and interactive GUI (Graphic User Interface) which cut off overall configuration efforts, guiding customers creating a working project in few mouse clicks and detecting mismatches between target device and customer firmware, as well as power supply setup.

8 channels universal, parallel and independent

16 channels universal, parallel
and independent
