most if not all flash chips. The parallel port data lines D0, D1, and D2 are used for driving the control signals LCLK, LFRAME, and RST. The parallel port data lines D3, D4, D5, and D6 are used for bi-directional data transfers of the corresponding LAD0, LAD1, LAD2, and LAD3 lines. LAD0, LAD1, LAD2, and LAD3 lines are also buffered and feed back to the parallel port /Error, /SELIN, /PE, and /Ack signals. The 74HC244 is an advanced high-speed CMOS Octal Bus Buffer that acts as a simple signal buffer between D0, D1, /Error, /SELIN, /PE, /Ack and the LCLK, LFRAME, LAD0, LAD1, LAD2, LAD3 lines.

Welcome to The LPCflasher Project. Open source hardware for developing open source software.
The project is maintained by Joseph Smith.
The LPCflasher is low-cost simple flash programming device. It can be used to flash a variety of LPC flash chips and firmware hubs (FWH). The hope is someday it will also be able to support SPI chips. It is also meant to be modular so you can flash a variety flash chip packages. The LPCflasher is based on an old LPC programmer built to flash LPC chips on the xbox, the LPC^2 (Low Parts Count LPC Programming Cable). The LPCflasher is not for sale, it is meant for that "do-it-yourself" kind of person. Although if the project becomes popular, bare PCB's could be produced and sold at cost. Anyone with novice to moderate soldering skills can build one.
