hed.chip - universal device programmer

Manufacturer declaration:

hed.chip - universal device programmer is suited for the year 2000 and beyond without restriction. It complies to the rules developed by BSI DISC concerning the year 2000 conformity. BSI DISC has developed and published set of four rules that can be used to measure the conformity ("A definition of year 2000 conformity requirements", PD2000-1, January 1997).

No. Name Explanation
1 general integrity No value for current date will cause any interruption in operation
2 date integrity Date-based must behave consitently for dates prior to, during and after the year 2000.
3 explicit/implicit century In all interfaces and data storage, the century in any date must be specified either explicitly or by unambiguous algorithms or interecing rules.
4 leap year Year 2000 must be recognized as a leap year.

There is no processing of dates in the software for hed.chip. The current date of the computer or the date-of-last-change of files do not effect the operation of the device programmer. Therefore, the software meets all requirements quoted in the four rules for Y2k conformity without restriction.

Beyond the rules:

Year 2000 conformity may require that updates of the operating system and/or other software products are installed. The software for hed.chip is continually being tested using the latest releases of Windows 98 and Windows NT. This is done to make certain that no Y2k update of another product will adversely effect the operation of the programmer.
