Chip Shares Some BPM History

Chip, BPM’s mascot, gives some of the history behind the success of BPM Microsystems:

“BPM device programmers offer high-performance device handling, advanced serialization, and quality control, meeting the highest programming and cyber security standards, for automotive, aerospace, medical, industrial, and mobile device applications. BPM’s intelligently designed systems deliver the lowest programming cost per device.

“Back in 1985, in a dorm room at Rice University, Bill White founded BPM Microsystems. He couldn’t find a decent chip programmer for a class project he was working on, so he made his own. He started to sell the EP1, an e e prom programmer, locally, and then by mail order; the rest is history. BPM still builds all of its systems in its ISO 9001 plant in Houston Texas.

“BPM device programmers serve the world with billions and billions of accurately programmed devices, in thousands of products– everything from thermometers to infotainment systems– by bringing compelling programming systems to market.”

US Restrictions Affecting Semiconductor Manufacturers

US Restrictions Affecting Semiconductor Manufacturers

Major advanced semiconductor maker ASML Holding NV has told its U.S. employees to refrain from serving customers in China because of new regulations from the Biden administration, according to an internal email to employees.

“ASML US employees must refrain- either directly, or indirectly- from servicing, shipping or providing support to any customers in China until further notice, while ASML is actively assessing which particular fabs are affected by this regulation,” says an email from the US management team addressed to employees in the country. The ban applies to all U.S. workers, including U.S. citizens, green card holders, and resident aliens, according to the email.

The Biden administration banned Chinese companies from buying advanced chip-making equipment or employing American citizens without a license to prevent the economic and military threat from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

US Strengthens Restrictions on China

Current US sanctions against China affect HPC, aerospace, automotive, military, and other sectors. The market for high-end computing chips (including CPUs, GPUs, etc.) has borne the brunt of these limitations at this stage, the market offering corresponding memory such as DRAM and NAND flash has also It has been implicated in potential supply disruptions. This now extends not only to domestic companies in mainland China but also to relevant US suppliers. Among them, server companies that rely on high-load computing will come under closer scrutiny.
