BPM Microsystems to Debut 8th Generation Automated Programming Solution at APEX 2011

Mar 09, 2011

Ideal for mid to high-volume production, the model 3800 automated programming system can utilize eight to 16 socket cards and is compatible with Flashstream socket cards.

Ideal for mid to high-volume production, the model 3800 automated programming system can utilize eight to 16 socket cards and is compatible with Flashstream socket cards.

BPM Microsystems is pleased to announce that it will debut its model 3800 8th Generation automated programming system in Booth 1428 at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place April 12-14, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas. This addition to the company's latest series of device programmers combines the unrivaled speed of Vector Engine Co-Processor® technology, true universal device support, and on-the-fly vision centering all in a single platform.

The model 3800 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 model 3800 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.

The model 3800 uses the same proven robust design as BPM Microsystems’ 3000 series device handling system. 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.

Ideal for mid to high-volume production, the model 3800 can utilize eight to 16 socket cards and is compatible with Flashstream socket cards. 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 yields, and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.
