The Adaptsys Group brings BPM Microsystems’ 2800 universal programmer to the Embedded World Expo in Europe

HOUSTON — Feb. 25, 2013 — BPM Microsystems announces that its distributor Adaptsys Group will exhibit its 2800 manual universal device programmer in Booth 422, Hall 4A at the upcoming Embedded World Exhibition, scheduled to take place February 26-28, 2013 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The 2800 combines the unrivaled speed of the Vector Engine Co-Processor®, capable of achieving an amazing peak operating rate of 12.8 Gb per second, with true universal device support, resulting in the fastest universal programmer in the industry.

The system supports all device technologies, including high-density NAND flash, NOR flash, serial flash, managed NAND flash, E/EPROM, microcontrollers and more with densities up to an 8Eb theoretical limit. Additionally, the 2800 uses the company’s cost-effective and efficient socket cards with receptacle-base socket option. Individual socket cards can be fully utilized and replaced without dramatically affecting programming capacity. With the receptacle-base socket option, customers can purchase only the consumable socket as needed. The design of BPM Microsystems’ socket cards increases manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yield, and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.

BPM Microsystems accepts its 20th industry award during the IPC APEX Expo

HOUSTON — Feb. 20, 2013 — BPM Microsystems announces that it has been awarded a 2013 New Product Introduction (NPI) Award in the category of Device Programming for its 2800ISP parallel in-system device programmer. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, February 19, 2013 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center in California. This marks the company’s 20th industry award.

“We are extremely proud to be awarded the 2013 NPI Award for our new 2800ISP system,” said Jim Holava, North America sales manager.  The system incorporates our latest high-speed programming site technology with leading-edge pin electronics to provide a truly innovative solution to the programming-at-test bottleneck. I want to thank our customers who have been early adopters of this technology and our entire BPM team for all of their hard work in making this product a success.”

The new 2800ISP incorporates the company’s award-winning 8th Generation site technology utilizing its Vector Engine Co-Processor® into a custom-designed test fixture, allowing its customers to program flash architectures including eMMC, PCM and Raw NAND, plus MCUs and other device technologies on-board after reflow. In 2012, the company added support for third party functional testing, such as boundary scan, with the capability to test up to 240 pins in addition to the 960 pins available for programming.

Ideal for medium- to high-volume production, the 2800ISP is configurable and can program up to 16 devices in parallel. Like all 8th Generation programmers, the 2800ISP with BPM’s Vector Engine Co-Processor is capable of achieving an amazing peak operating rate of 12.8 Gb per second. This solves the test bottleneck while allowing the operator to program the latest data just in time, all while attaining a very low programming cost per device.

Premiering in 2008, Circuits Assembly’s NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

BPM Microsystems to debut improved configuration of its model 3800 automated programming system at the IPC APEX Expo

HOUSTON — Feb. 14, 2013 — BPM Microsystems announces that its model 3800 automated programming system is now available with a side-mount option for the V-TEK TM-50 tape output media. This reconfiguration offers additional flexibility by allowing the machine to utilize options for tape, tray, tube and marking simultaneously.

“There are a number of advantages to the side-mount option that include improved access to the machine’s sites, less changeover time between jobs with the use of multiple input and output media, and reduced operator attendance,” said Colin Harper, director of sales and marketing. “With these advantages, our customers who opt for this configuration will ultimately see an increase in the number of programmed parts, thus reducing the overall cost per device.”

BPM Microsystems introduced the 3800 in 2010 as the fastest universal device programming solution on the market. It combines the company’s 8th Generation universal programming technology with the speed of the Vector Engine Co-Processor®, which is capable of achieving a peak operating rate of 25 Gbits per second.

The 3800 can be configured to accommodate the standard front-mount or new side-mount option for the TM-50 carrier tape packaging solution. The new configuration will be on display in the company’s booth #108 next week at the IPC APEX Expo in San Diego, CA.
