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.
