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.

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.
