BPM to Highlight Its Programming Technologies at SMTA International

Aug 04, 2008

HOUSTON � August 2008 � BPM Microsystems will display its latest Flashstream (automated and manual) programming technology, as well as its enhanced generation device programmer family in booth 717 at the upcoming SMTA International exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place August 19-20, 2008 in Orlando, FL.

Designed specifically to solve excessive programming times in current in-system, JTAG and in-circuit programming production methods, the 3000FS is modeled from the current BPM 3710 handler and contains four Flashstream programming sites. Rated at 1050 devices per hour, the new 3000FS is flexible enough to handle parts in tray, tube or tape for device input or output. The 3000FS automated flash programmer has the ability to produce a fully programmed 512Mb NAND Flash memory device every 3.4 seconds or 1100 devices in an hour.

Designed for high-density flash, the 2800F Flashstream Flash Vector Programming system programs EPROMs, NAND and NOR Flash up to 32 Gb (gigabit) and has upgradeable RAM for future densities. It comes standard with 4191 Mb (32.7 Gb) memory per site that is upgradeable to handle future densities and communicates with USB 2.0 between the host PC and programmer. The programmer also includes bad block replacement scheme for NAND and low voltage support. A four-socket manual system, Flashstream is BPM's first dedicated hardware design for flash memories, which results in a radical improvement in speed when compared to competitive flash programmers.

The Flashstream technology offers the fastest flash programming of NAND and NOR flash memory at speeds as low as 2.5 percent over theoretical programming minimum. This industry leading speed is due to the creation of a proprietary co-processor technology developed by BPM called Vector Engine. This technology uses a proprietary co-processor design to hardware accelerate flash memory waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate the dead times when the DUT waits on the programmer. The result is programming near the theoretical limits of the silicon design � the faster the device, the faster the device is programmed.

As an additional benefit, multiple Flashstream units can be connected to one computer to run the same programming job in concurrent programming� mode. Single units can be mechanically connected. Also, a LED display identifies the programmer number that corresponds to software instructions.

Flashstream significantly helps the production of embedded designs in electronic products by reducing ramp to volume production fears for products that integrate high-density flash memory such as wireless devices, navigation electronics and personal music systems. It also enables new applications, especially for very large patterns. Additionally, these systems can leave the factory with preloaded data or content instead of blank memory.

Also on display will be the Enhanced 7th Generation device programmers. Featuring USB 2.0 communications interface and support for devices with densities up to 4 Gigabits, the Enhanced 7th Generation was developed to meet the new technological requirements of the programming industry. The Enhanced 7th Generation programmer models 1710, 2710, 2710M, 4710, 4710-M, 3710MK2 and 3710MK2-M have replaced the existing 7th Generation product line.

Earlier BPM Micro programmer models use a parallel port to communicate from the host PC to the programmer. With a high-speed USB 2.0 standard bus, communication speeds are increased and greater reliability is provided. On-board memory was increased to address with the industry trend of higher density semiconductor devices.
