    New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    So there have been some hints kicking around in our different media regarding the development of a new product from the same team that brought you the MPSciLink. The prototype should be ready for testing in the next couple/few weeks.

    I would like to start a thread here which we can discuss and gather some idea of interest.
    I drafted up a product brochure with some information and I will share that here for you to look at.
    But, here are some basics.

    Introducing MPFlash
    A new modular universal flash board for modifying the factory ECU's to make them flashable.
    Single PCB design that can be configured for multiple ecu types. Now supports more ECU's than the current BoostButton flash modules available as DIY from Osh Park.
    Also available as a MultiPlay flash module to stack 4 different calibrations (bin files) on the module with the additional hardware and wiring for a 4 position switch.

    The MPFlash will come fully assembled configured for your ECU type. Will need to be installed in your ECU.

    I'm in for a couple or perhaps many of them depending on price.

    Re: New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    We are trying to target around the $40 mark for standard, and with the MultiPlay with the added hardware (connectors, wiring, and 4 position switch, etc.) around the $50, maybe less if possible.

    Re: New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    If you would like to be counted, here is a pre-order list. No money being collected yet. This will help us be prepared to ramp up quickly.

    Name, ECU type, S or 4P (single play, or MultiPlay) , (add quantity if same ECU, but if different ECU add a new line. Thanks)

    Re: New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    Sorry but LM isn't supported with this module.

    You can however use this as motivation to pull a Bucar and upgrade your LM car to a separated SMEC.

    Re: New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    I'm in for 1 smec 4p

    - - - Updated - - -

    Does the smec require the same installation procedure as the older flash modules with removing potting and attaching to a few spots and bypassing a zener diode?

    Re: New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    If you buy a Single, it is ready for multiplay by adding a switch, connector, two diodes and a wire from the ECU to the cabin

    what switch setup are you using for the multiplay versions?

    A rotary 4 position switch. It will require two diodes but no PCB like the BB FourPlay switch.
    And some wiring to go from the cabin to the MPFlash at the ECU.

    We haven't settled on a switch yet. There are a good number of options there.

    Re: New Flash Product Development, and Pre-Order interest

    would be nice if we could send in our ECU's and have the board installled. I can tune but don't have the skills or tools to assemble electronics.

    We are trying to develop an outlet for this.
    I haven't even tried to modify an ECU yet myself, but I will be.
    There are some folks out there who have done some for themselves, and others. But no one is really doing it as a business at the moment.
