BPM Microsystems Wins Product Innovation Award for WhisperTeach™

BPM Microsystems Wins Product Innovation Award for WhisperTeach™

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.

BPM Launches 9th Gen System with Multiple Upgrades

BPM Launches 9th Gen System with Multiple Upgrades

HOUSTON, TX-Dec. 4, 2017-SMT Global & Packaging interviews James Holava, BPM Director of Global Sales, at Productronica about new BPM innovations. BPM is now on its 9th gen site technology platform, which is backwards compatible with most 6th, 7th and 8th generation sockets. Ninth generation supports the majority of the 39,000+ library of components and devices that BPM has collected since 2002. This helps clients leverage many existing sockets and gives clients ease regarding the lifespan of future investments.

With the trend in the industry of higher density and smaller package devices, ninth generation technology also supports the EMMC devices and the HS400 programming mode at 200 MB per second. This provides the throughput manufacturers need today in modern production. To improve handling for smaller devices packages, BPM also introduced a new program called WhisperTeach™. WhisperTeach™ automatically teaches the Z-height of components and removes the opportunity for manual defects.

BPM 9th gen site technology is available on the 4900 and 3900 automated programming systems, as well as the 2900L and 1900 systems. To learn more about BPM ninth generation site technology and programmers, please contact BPM.

New Software Feature from BPM Microsystems Improves Tape Loader Teaching Process

HOUSTON, TX–May 21, 2013– BPM Microsystems announces that with the release of BPWin version 5.32.0, tape loader users now have the option to advance their tape reel by millimeters, mils or pocket count at the end of a job for an improved teaching process.

By installing the latest BPWin software release, automated system users with a V-TEK tape loader can now enter the desired leader/trailer tape length in either millimeters or mils via the “Tape Options Wizard.” The software will automatically calculate the number of pockets needed to advance the reel at the end of a job session. This allows for a faster, more intuitive teaching process, leading to greater machine uptime.

The new software feature conforms to V-TEKS’s leader/trailer tape reel advance method and is an enhancement over previous versions of BPWin that required users to manually calculate or count the number of pockets to advance at the end of a job.

BPM Microsystems is committed to providing its customers with the best user experience possible. The company adds new software features to each full software release to ensure that its customers receive continuous improvements.

Additional software features released in BPWin 5.32.0 can be found in the software release notes located under the Help menu of BPWin.
