I. Introduction
This duplicator system is designed and developed based on the FPGA from the world
famous semiconductor company XILINX. Every processing channel is parallel to each other
with its own control unit, therefore the duplicator will not sacrifice speed for the increasing
number of targets loaded - always remain the same and fast copy speed. The duplicator
supports fast copy with multiple file formats created by three major operating systems
(Windows/Linux/MAC), and makes mirror copies of data efficiently. Furthermore, this
duplicator has been fully tested with quality assurance before leaving our manufacturing
facility.
1. Features

Each processing channel has its own control unit and operates independently with
dedicated bandwidth of up to 35MB per second.
b.
Standalone operation. No PC or software is required, m inimizing possible computer

II. Warning
1. The duplicator tasks mentioned in this user’s manual are as following: Copy, Compare,
Copy + Compare, Capacity Check, and the functions under Utility sub menu, such as
Format FAT32, Format exFAT, Quick Erase, Full Erase and DOD Erase.
2. All the tasks can be executed in synchronous mode, and asynchronous mode (except
Copy + Compare function).
3. The Green LED flashes during the execution process of a task. After the task is done, the
Green LED will stay solid if the process is successful, otherwise the Red LED will be on if
the process is failed.
4. Press and hold ESC button during the execution process of a task will stop and exit the
execution of the task.
5
5. DO NOT unplug SD/Micro SD cards from the duplicator during the execution process of
a task. It may cause damage to the duplicator system and media.
6. It is strongly recommended that the capacities of the source and target media are equal
or similar.
7. DO NOT plug in SD/Micro SD cards until the duplicator boots up. It may cause abnormal
results if a SD/Micro SD card with quality issue is plugged in before or during the boot up
process.
III. Synchronous /Asynchronous Mode
1. Synchronous Mode
Synchronous Mode (default) means that the duplicator will start to execute a task after the
source and target devices have been inserted and the ENT button is pressed. The task will
begin and end at the same time for all target devices. Any other target device plugged in during
the process of a task will not be executed with the task. Go to section 6.2 Asynchronous
Mode to enable or disable this function.
a.
Insert source media into the source channel and blank media into the target channels
properly. The LCD display will show no source disk when source media is not plugged
in yet, and show the number of target media inserted when source media plugged in.
b.
The green LED will be on if the target device is plugged in properly.
c.
Select the task from menu, and press ENT button to execute it.
d.
During the execution process, the status of each target device can be checked by
using the ▲ and ▼ buttons.
e.
After the task is done, LCD display will show the number of successful and failed
target(s), and execution time. Go to section 6.10 Show Result Time to set up the
display of time.
2. Asynchronous Mode
Asynchronous Mode means that the duplicator will read the data from source device into
system memory buffer and start to execute a task immediately when target device(s)
inserted. Duplicator does not have to wait for all target devic e(s) inserted in order t o
6
start the execution of the task at the same time. No matter the data size of the
source device, duplicator can asynchronously execute a task if Asynchronous Mode
is enabled. Go to 6.2 Asynchronous Mode to enable or disable this function.
a. Insert source media into the source channel, select the task to execute from the menu,
and press ENT button. Duplicator will start to execute the task now.
b. Target devices can be plugged in during the execution process, and will start to execute the
task immediately
c. Target device can be removed when it finishes the execution process and its green
LED is solid on. New target device can be plugged into the same channel for
execution of the task again.
d. LCD display will show the percentage of execution process, the number of successful
and failed target(s). Here the percentage of execution process displayed is only for the
least processed target device.
e. During the execution process, the status of each target device can be checked by
using the ▲ and ▼ buttons.
f. After the task is done for all target devices, press ESC button to exit from the task. LCD
display will show the total number of successful and failed target(s), and total execution
time. Go to 6.10 Show Result Time to set up the display of time.
g. Don’t need to wait for all target devices to be done. Each channel executes the task
asynchronously.

6. Setup
6.1. Copy Area
This option allows to select the area on the source device to copy onto the target devices.
You may select either “System And Files” to skip all the unoccupied area on the source
device or “Whole Media”. By default, the copy area is set up as System And Files.
System And Files
The duplicator first analyzes the file format of source device. You may copy only the system
and files area to save overall copy time if the file format is FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS
(Windows), EXT2, EXT3, EXT4 (Linux), and HFS/HFS+ (Mac). Otherwise, the duplicator
will copy the entire source device content to the target devices including unoccupied space.
For instance, the source device has 8GB capacity but with only 50MB of data in FAT32 file
format. The duplicator will copy only the 50MB of data area to the target device, hence
shortening overall copy time.
Whole Media
12
W hen selected, the duplicator copies the entire content on the source device, including both
the data and empty spaces. This option is used when you have a source device with
unknown file format. For instance a source device has 8GB capacity and 50MB of data with
unknown file format, the duplicator will copy the whole 8GB of content to target device.

This function allows to set up read/write speed threshold for target devices. When the target
device is causing the copy or compare process delay due to its lower read/write speed and
the rest of the devices in the same batch have to wait for it, the Slow Out Threshold strategy
will be applied as the following: the system will stop the copy or compare process for that
particular target device when its read/write speed is below the threshold for continuing
number of seconds based on the setting, and its red LED will flash to give warning. There
are 3 settings to set up.
Read: set up the lowest read speed,and options are OFF, 1MB/s~35MB/s. The default
setting is OFF.
Write: set up the lowest write speed, and options are OFF, 1MB/s~35MB/s. The default
setting is OFF.
Duration: set up the period when read or write speed is lower than the threshold for
continuing number of time, and options are 1~20second. The default is 5second.

V. Basic Troubleshooting
1.
The copy speed of duplicator depends on the SD/Micro SD card own read and write
speed. Please change the SD/Micro SD card if the copy speed is very low and
unacceptable.
2.
This duplicator device cannot copy any data content with copy protection. For
non-standard SD/Micro SD devices, please select Whole Media from Copy Area setup
for duplication.
3.
It is recommended to use the SD/Micro SD card with the same capacity for duplication,
to avoid unexpected errors.
4.
Customer must get pre-approved authorization from manufacturer in order to open the
unit for repair or maintenance. Otherwise the warranty of the unit will be voided.
5.
Customer must contact manufacturer to obtain proper firmware file for system update if
it is necessary and provide with 6.5 System Info. Please follow the instructions when
update firmware, and delete the firmware file after the update is done. Without the
consent of the manufacturer of any behavior in spreading the firmware file is considered
violation of copyright law, and the company will retain the legal recourse liability.
