HOUSTON, TX - BPM Microsystems announces the release of its 8th Generation manual universal programming system, the model 2800. This new addition to BPM Microsystems' device programmer family combines the unrivaled speed of Vector Engine Co-Processor® technology with true universal device support as the fastest universal programmer in the industry.

“The new 2800 offers the speed and versatility needed to support the latest programmable devices,” said Colin Harper, director of sales and marketing at BPM Microsystems. “The performance and value are unbeatable. We believe customers will really benefit from this new product and we are excited to see how they react once they see it in action.”

As a universal device programmer, the model 2800 supports Microcontrollers, NAND Flash, NOR Flash, Serial Flash, Managed NAND Flash, E/EPROM, Flash EPROM and other technologies with densities up to an 8 Eb theoretical limit. It also supports devices with voltage down to 0.7 (Vdd).

The ultra-fast programming speed of the 2800 is attributed to BPM Microsystems’ Vector Engine Co-Processor, the same proven technology that established Flashstream® as the fastest flash-dedicated programmer. The unique co-processor design hardware accelerates waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations, eliminating dead time so that the device under test no longer waits for the programmer. The result is programming near the theoretical limits of the silicon design — the faster the device, the faster the device is programmed.

Ideal for design engineering to high-volume production, the model 2800 has the capability to program with one, two, three or four socket cards. The programmer also offers a single socket card purchase for first article qualification.

More economical and efficient than competitors’ “gang” cards that are soldered to a common printed circuit board, BPM Microsystems’ socket cards can be optimized and replaced individually without dramatically affecting programming capacity. With optional receptacle-base socket cards, customers can simply purchase the consumable socket as needed. The company’s socket card design increases manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yield and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.

The 2800 will make its debut at Nepcon South China in distributor Kasion’s booth 2C41. The exhibition is scheduled to take place at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2, 2010.

As with previous platforms, BPM Microsystems plans to release the 8th Generation automated programming system later this year, providing customers with a complete offline solution from design through high-volume manufacturing.
