z10user2:OK.I will try to answer your questions. Yes,I have a eMiniTec 1 programmer.This programmer works very well, but it supports only one communication protocol/SDA/.
The programmer uses a usb cable, but it can not use a USB 2.0 Full Speed/12Mbps/,because it uses FT245BL chip.
The FT245BL allows for Transfer Data rate to 1M Byte / Sec - D2XX Driver and
Transfer Data rate to 300 Kilobyte / Sec - VCP Driver. The IntriCon`s amplifiers used SDA protocol only until recently.
Now they are used and Wireless comuniatinen protocol by Bg-Ble programmer.
By default in the Fitting software is selected a Left Ear.
Each programmer has two channels that are used for the programming HA.Each software has an option to
select left or right ear.The software sends a command to the programmer to select a left or right channel.
You know that cs44 has four pins :SDA /for Data/,SCL /Clock/ +Bat and GND.Hearing aids use a different
communication protocols to communicate with the programmer.For example, if your hearing aid uses the I2C protocol, then
it will use 4 pins from the cs44 cable ->(pin 3 = SCK (I2C only)).
In some cases, the functions of pin 3 and pin 4 are changed.If you use an original Hi-Pro instrument to program
the HA, then this problem is automatically solved by the Hi-Pro programmer.Otherwise, you can to make or
buy a suitable cable.
