BPM to Showcase Automated Handler for Flashstream Technology at Productronica 2009

Dec 07, 2009

HOUSTON — August 2009 — BPM Microsystems announces plans to display its latest Flashstream automated programming technology, the 3000FS, in distributor PB Tec’s Stand 377 in Hall A2 at the upcoming Productronica exhibition. The event is scheduled to take place 10th – 13th November 2009 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.

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 1100 devices per hour, the new 3000FS is flexible enough to handle parts in tray, tube or tape for device input or output.

“Combining these two technologies gives the 3000FS automated flash programmer the ability to produce a fully programmed 512Mb NAND Flash memory device every 3.4 seconds or 1100 devices in an hour” says the director of global marketing. “Our customers will get the benefit of a robust device handling solution combined with Flashstream’s speed to meet the challenges of large flash memory programming in electronics manufacturing.”

The Flashstream technology, that was introduced as a manual programming product in April of 2007, offers the fastest flash programming of NAND and NOR flash memory on the market today. 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.
