“We are pleased to see the market expanding in Poland,” said Colin Harper, European sales manager. “The 3000FS provides proven performance for programming high-density flash. This system’s programming speed and unique socket card design offer the fastest return on investment on a cost-per-device basis.”
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 3000FS is flexible enough to handle parts in tray, tube or tape for device input or output.
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 Microsystems 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.
