2018 New Product Introduction Award Presented at IPC APEX EXPO
HOUSTON, TX-Apr. 10, 2018- BPM Microsystems, a leading global provider of IC device programming solutions, announces that is has been awarded the 2018 New Product Introduction Award in the category of Production Software for its WhisperTeach™ solution on the BPWin™ platform. The award was presented to the company during a ceremony that took place at IPC APEX on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
“Pick and place errors account for the majority of quality issues when programming semiconductor devices. The vacuum systems can easily blow these delicate devices out of place, or cause them to jump up to the nozzle. This can result in poor job yield and the potential for inaccurate alignment,” said Sarah Kamery, Director of Product Marketing for BPM Microsystems. “With devices getting smaller and smaller, operators need automated solutions to quickly and accurately teach jobs, and WhisperTeach™ provides that solution.”
WhisperTeach™ uses artificial intelligence and an enhanced pneumatic system to learn and determine the accurate z-height between the nozzle and device. BPM invented WhisperTeach™, patent pending, to help programming centers and manufacturers reduce setup time per job, improve cycle time, reduce changeover time, and improve job accuracy.
The annual NPI Awards recognize companies that introduce innovative new products for electronics assembly equipment, materials, software, and PCB fabrication. Award recipients are chosen by an independent panel of industry experts.

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.
