Released Thaiphoon Burner 18.104.22.168 Super Blaster Edition. Being leading software for SPD flashing on the market during 5 years Thaiphoon Burner has brought the next revolution in SPD flashing again! Now this is the first known software to protect the EEPROM device of memory modules from being written permanently. Thaiphoon Burner uses the Permanently Software Write Protect feature of Atmel AT34C02-based SPD EEPROMs. Once PSWP has been enabled it cannot be reversed by powering down the EEPROM device. This is exactly what DRAM module vendors need to protect SPD content of their products. Besides, Thaiphoon Burner uses PSWP to check whether the EEPROM device is protected. If it is not protectected the user can protect it by himself by clicking the only button!

Thaiphoon Burner 22.214.171.124 Super Blaster Edition is released! The latest version of the software features a new universal routine to access SM Bus devices on any SiS chipsets. Thanks to this Thaiphoon Burner is capable of reading SPD EEPROM device content both thought the incorporated SMBus controller and ACPI. The last method is used for older SiS chipsets like SiS630. The latest version has been successfully tested on SiS630 and SiS730 chipsets. In addition, the new update supports SPD accessing via legacy SiS960, SiS961 and SiS962 southbridges. All other SiS southbridges coming after SiS962 including SiS968 are supported as well. As with other improvements, new Thaiphoon Burner determines the SDRAM device organization without errors being specific for DDR3, FB-DIMM and PC SDRAMs. The Module Specification Panel now reports a capacity of the SDRAM device. Although this parameter is traditionally measured in megabits, Thaiphoon Burner displays it in megabytes. This easily helps to determine a number of SDRAM devices incorporated on the SDRAM module.

Thaiphoon Burner 184.108.40.206 Super Blaster just released! This is a hot update to the previous build 0424. The new update eliminates some errors made after the utility had got a new design of the Hex Editor. For instance, all data cells of the Hex Editor are now updated after any changes have been made by using XMP Enhancer, EPP Enhancer and Timing Table Editor. Also, when changing a content of the Hex Editor the data cells are colored automatically again in accordance with a SPD version. The Status Bar shows new hints for some DDR3 SPD registers previously know as “reserved”. If a part number of the DRAM module is changed through the Hex Editor it is changed respectively in the caption of the main window too. SPD Browser now supports SPD of DRAM modules with a data capacity of 16GB. Additionally to the part number decoding routing for Samsung DDR3 DIMMs Thaiphoon Burner now reports a die generation of SDRAM components.

Thaiphoon Burner 220.127.116.11 Super Blaster has been released. The new update brings full support for DDR2-1066 JEDEC standard and JEDEC DDR2 SPD Revision 1.3. For this purpose we have designed an absolutely new edition of Timing Table Editor to support both the latest JEDEC DDR2 and legacy DDR SDRAM standards. Now Timing Table Editor enables you to adjust timing parameters in accordance with JEDEC’s DDR2 speed bins just in one click. All speed bins for DDR2 are listed in appropriate combobox. Especially you may enjoy new Timing Table Editor if your RAM memory supports 533MHz through the NVIDIA EPP 1.0 profiles. This means you may update standard DDR2-800 SPD firmware Rev 1.2 up to SPD Rev.1.3 to define 533MHz approved by JEDEC as an official standard. In addition, Timing Table Editor both for DDR2 and DDR3 now automatically corrects SPD checksum.

Showshock Softnology is proud to be the first software development company to release Thaiphoon Burner 18.104.22.168 Super Blaster that meets two latest JEDEC requirements related to DDR3 SDRAM - JESD79-3D and N09-NM4. Since the new update Thaiphoon Burner now creates DDR3 summary timing tables in accordance with JEDEC standard. Additionally, the software determines all supported CAS# latencies specified in DDR3 SPD. As a bonus for DDR3 SDRAM vendors and manufacturers, Thaiphoon Burner now reports DDR3 DIMM Label proposed by JEDEC Committee JC-45 and approved by the JEDEC Board of Directors. Thanks to the ASUS Eee PC community Thaiphoon Burner now supports SPD read and write operations via Intel SCH chipset. For instance, Thaiphoon Burner should read SPD data on ASUS Eee PC 1101HA netbook.
