GQ-4X4 is the newest model of the True USB Willem Universal Programmer series from MCUmall Electronics Inc Canada.

With its completely new professional design, True USB PRO 40pin Willem programmer GQ-4X4 is the first & exclusive Willem universal programmer in the market that owns the unique features:

  • Neat robust enclosure; 40pin ZIF socket, fully automatic; JTAG support; Fast mode SPI support;
  • Support Windows O/S XP 32bit 64bit, Vista 32bit,Vista 64bit; Window7/8/10/11 32bit and 64bit
  • Real True USB interface for both data transfer and power supply;
  • High speed/fastest; most-user-friendly; simplest-to-use;
  • Software update regularly; free lifetime software upgrade/download;
  • Multi-languages support capability: Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Spanish, Portugues   

The application-oriented & application-enhanced design facilitates GQ-4X4 supports thousands of the most popular application devices (growing) and ideally suits the portable/convenient applications that include: car automotive field ECU chip tuning, airbag reset, mileage, satellite devices, BIOS refreshing, motherboard BIOS in-circuit upgrade, Xbox, Wii gaming machines EPROM duplicate, Altera Xilinx JTAG, PIC/MCU development, newer laptop technology, and newer desktop PC, etc.

It has an outstanding performance which supports the devices that other similar products are not capable of supporting: such as the 25LF SPI series, PSOP44, TSOP48, 25VF SPI series, Altera Xilinx CPLD JTAG, PLCC84, SST39VF3201, TE28F102, 27C1024, 27C1028, HD6475,29F800, 29LV800, 29F032...

Key & Unique Features

1. Complete new professional design with own robust enclosure and 40pin ZIF socket

  • The neat robust enclosure is designed to suit the portable and field convenient applications
  • 40 pin of the ZIF socket supports more chips without the adapter
  • First and only Willem programmer with 40pin ZIF socket, other models use 32pin ZIF
  • The software & hardware are Designed/developed by MCUmall Electronics Inc. Canada
  • Assembled in Canada and post-sales support by MCUmall Electronics Inc.

2. Fully automatic & no manual set-up needed (eliminate all jumpers & DIP-switch)

  • Fully automatic for efficient use and extends the programmer lifetime
  • Eliminates all jumpers on board, manual set-up for jumpers is no longer needed (all non-USB Willem use jumpers: 16 jumpers on PCB5.0C, 48 jumpers on Willem 1.5)
  • Eliminate the on-board DIP switch, manual set-up for DIP switch is no longer needed.
  • This also makes it much easier & very simple to use for end-users.
  • Plug-and-play reduces the learning curve and saves you precious time.

3. Fast mode SPI programming & JTAG support wider the application

  • Useful for motherboard BIOS in-circuit upgrade
  • Altera Xilinx CPLD JTAG support

4. True USB data transfer interface with PC/LapTop for newer laptop use as well as a portable application

  • Uses only one USB cable to connect with PC/Laptop USB port for both data transfer and power supply. The bulky DB25 data cable is eliminated & no longer needed for data transfer between PC and programmer board
  • It is True/Real USB data transmission protocol (USB-USB), Not via Fake/Pseudo-USB data communication.
  • Fake/Pseudo USB data transfer needs the middle serial or parallel port conversion: USB-Serial-USB conversion or LPT-USB conversion, this limits the programming speed significantly.
  • GQ-4X features the same revolutionary data interface as GQ-3X, the True USB data transmission with PC/LapTop.

5. Exponentially speed increase up to 20 times faster

  • Connects PC via a high-speed USB link, provides the fastest possible data transfer rates for programming/reading data from target IC's.
  • It is capable of being up to 20 times faster than other existing printer port Willem (parallel LPT Willems: PCB6.xx, PCB5.0C, PCB4.5C) programmers on reading & verification a high-density flash device, this significantly saves your time and increases work efficiency as well as facilitates small scale production
  • Assembly language written programming algorithms run fast and are reliable. Not affected by the PC speed changes and Windows 0/S variations.

6. Dual power supply capability: USB port & AC/DC and automatic voltage control

  • Vcc supported among 3.6V, 5V, 5.5V, 6.5V
  • On-Board MCU for stable performance & automatic/accurate voltage control
  • Works best among other programmers for EPROMs

7. The GQUSB software is specially developed for True USB willem programmers GQ-4X,GQ-3X, GQ-2X.

  • Free Lifetime software download/upgrade, please click here for software revision history
  • Updates software and device algorithms regularly
  • Free IC device updates via web
  • Support Windows O/S XP 32bit 64bit, Vista 32bit,Vista 64bit; Window7/8/10/11 32bit and 64bit
  • Advanced software engineered to provide the most user-friendly interface & simplest and easiest-to-use Willem programmer version to save time and comfort to use
  • Multi-language support, such as English, German, Spanish, Chinese, French, Czech, Portugues
  • Programming history memory function on-board
  • Supports most popular ECU, Satellite,xBox, Wii, BIOS, EPROM chips: SST39VF3201, TE28F102, 27C1024, 29F800, 29LV800...
  • Supports the chips that LPT Willem are not capable of supporting, like 24RF08,28F102,87C257 and more
  • Supports TSOP48, PSOP44,16bit EPROM chips that 40 pin TOP, EasyPro, Wellon are not capable of supporting
  • Supports 25LF SPI series, 25VF SPI series, Altera Xilinx CPLD JTAG, PLCC84,29F032...
  • Allows end-users to add in their own chips/devices easily (editing .txt file)

8. Working with the adapters further expands the supported devices list

  • Accommodate the existing adapters (GQ-3X/2X and parallel LPT Willem adapter)
  • Packaging supported: TSOP48 (16bit & 8 bit), TSOP32, PSOP44, DIP8 to DIP40, PLCC, SOP,SOIC, MCS-51+, PLCC84, and etc.

9. Covers the widest application areas among all Willem programmers

  • Car/automotive ECU chip tuning, airbag reset, mileage, memory device code read/write/program
  • Satellite large capacity device applications
  • On-spot/Field/portable applications & Small scale production
  • Motherboard BIOS in-circuit upgrading
