Remote control protocols are typically proprietary, but Data I/O's
protocol (at least for the UniFamily units, not sure about the 280)
is well-documented. It's important to note, however, that most
standalone device programmers are designed to be used as...standalone
units. Meaning, you control them from their keypad and display. If
they have a serial port (and most do, the 280 definitely does) then
they usually accept front-panel-initiated transfer of files (usually
binary, Intel hex, Motorola S-record, and a few others) via Xmodem/
Ymodem/etc over the serial port.
