HOUSTON, TX–June 3, 2013– BPM Microsystems, a leading supplier of device programming systems, announces the release of its latest white paper, titled “Advanced Device Serialization Using an External Serialization Server,” written by software engineering manager Nader Shehad. This white paper explains how modern serialization applications can use a more sophisticated approach to facilitate device programming with Device-Driven Serialization (DDS).
DDS is a communication framework that allows the External Serialization Server (ESS) to communicate bi-directionally with a device-specific programming algorithm running as part of the programming application. This allows the ESS to become part of the programming algorithm and extends the functionality of typical serialization techniques.
“The bi-directional communication framework provided by DDS allows greater flexibility in the External Serialization Server,” said Shehad. “For instance, the ESS can read device-specific data for logging purposes, control details about the programming operation, and be notified each time the device is powered on or off. Moreover, a detailed failure analysis can be provided to the ESS to indicate exactly which phase of the program and/or verify operations failed. The ESS could then store this information in a database, send it via e-mail to key personnel, or integrate with other customer systems.”
DDS is a breakthrough in the serialization process that addresses today’s complex requirements of modern serialization. To find out more about Device-Driven Serialization, download the complimentary white paper here

In the device programming industry, serialization is the process of writing unique data to each programmed device. It can be used to program basic numeric serial numbers to a single device address and can also be used to program more complex data such as MAC addresses, encryption keys, GUIDs and randomization seeds to several device addresses on each device…
