Notice of discontinuation of AF9101/AF9103


Thank you for your continuous support.
We are sorry to inform you that we will stop our manufacture and sales of onboard programmer AF9101 / AF9103 as of the end of May 2019.
We began selling AF9101 in June 2005 and AF9103 in December 2006, which have been patronized by many customers for a long time.
However, it has become difficult to continuously acquire electronic components, and to cope with high-speed operation and high functionality of memory devices. From now we will strengthen the current model that can respond flexibly to customer's needs, and develop new high-performance model.
We would like to thank you for your tremendous patronage and apologize for any inconvenience caused by termination of sales.
