BPM Microsystems will debut its new production solution for in-system device programming in Booth #3702 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28-March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
The new 2800ISP Semi-Automated In-System Device Programmer offers the unmatched performance and flexibility of 8th Generation site technology. With a custom-designed test fixture, operators can easily program flash, microcontrollers and other device technologies on-board after reflow.
The semi-automated design of the 2800ISP uses a pneumatic fixture with built-in safety features to actuate the pressure plate. Once actuated, the circuit board makes contact with high quality pogo pins that are specifically engineered to achieve exceptional signal integrity. Ideal for medium and high-volume production, the 2800ISP is configurable and can program up to 16 devices in parallel.
The model 2800 Universal Device Programmer uses BPM Microsystems’ cost-effective and efficient socket cards with receptacle-base socket option. Individual socket cards can be fully utilized and replaced without dramatically affecting programming capacity. With the receptacle-base socket option, customers can purchase only the consumable socket as needed. The design of BPM Microsystems’ socket cards increases manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yield, and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.
Ideal for mid- to high-volume production, the model 3800 Universal Device Programmer can utilize eight to 16 socket cards and is compatible with Flashstream socket cards. Integrated into the 3800 is the LaserAlign™ sensor from CyberOptics®, which assures repeatable pick-and-place accuracy and high performance during the programming process. The programmer also offers flexible options for input and output media with choices of tray, tape or tube.
The model 2800 and 3800 support microcontrollers, NAND flash, NOR flash, serial flash, managed NAND flash, EEPROM, Flash EPROM, and other technologies with densities up to an 8 Eb theoretical limit. The programmers also support devices with voltage down to 0.7 (Vdd).
Established in 1985, BPM Microsystems is a global supplier of electronic device programmers for all applications. The company is the leading supplier of vision-based automated programming systems and sets the standard in device support, performance, ease-of-use, and cost-of-ownership.
