Isn't ELFA the last place to look from? They are expensive and (in Finland) have very poor customer service. > Build this one: > http://s-huehn.de/elektronik/epromprog/epromprog.htm > > Supports everything "we" need and is even OS-independent as it is > entirely controlled through RS232. On a related note, if you are unlucky enough to miss an RS-232 connector on your computer, it seems that Prolific PL2303 based USB to RS-232 adapters are a safe bet. While XON/XOFF handshaking will not work on Linux, CTS/RTS will work. Some time ago, I made some experiments with a borrowed PL2303 adapter, and was able to patch c2nload (adding some delays or tweaking the system calls) so that it would work on both Debian GNU/Linux (kernel 2.6.16.x or so) and Windows XP. On one occasion, my FTDI FT232BM based adapter (FTDI US232B) worked on Windows XP, but I think it was an accident. The ftdi_sio driver on Linux is broken beyond repair.
