looking for recommendations:
-its a balance on cost vs ability to gang program, in other words, a low cost programmer that did 10 parts would compare to a more expensive machine able to do 100 parts at one time.
-must be easy to use, the P&E microcomputer emulator pod works but takes some skill.
-the P&E Microcomputer emulator costs $99.00 ea and does one part at a time.

yes i know there are companies that can do the programming for 3-4 cents per part but looking for an option outside a contract house or suplier. may want to do volume programming in house or in a china site.
