Programming time for CY3207 ISSP programmer

Answer:

Question: What is the difference in programming time for CY3207 ISSP programmer while using "In System" or "In socket" programming modes?

Response: Programming time will not differ much in ISSP and Socket programming mode.
Please find the below data for CY8C27443 (16K Flash) part number:

Programmer Connected to PC

1. Socket Programming:   ~14Sec
2. ISSP Programming:
    Vdd Stable On:         ~14Sec
    Vdd Rising Edge(Supply should be provided after 4 Sec and before 20Sec): ~13Sec

Stand Alone Mode(Not Connected to PC)

1. Socket Programming: ~13Sec
2. ISSP Programming:
   Vdd Stable On:  ~13Sec
   Vdd Rising Edge(Supply should be provided after 4 Sec and before 20Sec):   ~14Sec

From the above data it is evident that irrespective of the mode of programming it takes about 13 to 14 seconds to program a 16K device.

Also, programming time does not depend on the code size of the firmware but it depends on Flash size of device.
