BPM’s ISO 9001 Certification Renewed

BPM’s ISO 9001 Certification Renewed

ISO 9001:2015 Certificate renewed

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies. The adoption of a quality management system is a decision that can help to improve its overall performance and provide a sound basis for sustainable development initiatives. This International Standard is based on the quality management principles described in ISO 9000. The descriptions include a statement of each principle, a rationale of why the principle is important for the organization, some examples of benefits associated with the principle, and examples of typical actions to improve the organization’s performance when applying the principle.

Initial Certification Date: December 8, 2018
Issue Date: December 9, 2021
Expiry Date: December 8, 2024

Productronica Day One

Productronica Day One

After a lengthy break from tradeshows, BPM is pleased to showcase its latest innovation: the BPM310 Automated Programming System. The first 10th Generation programmer offers the industry’s fastest programming times for UFSeMMCFlash, and MCUs with twice as many sockets per site as its predecessor. The BPM310 offers a capacity of up to 48 sockets, automotive-level quality, and reliability in a small footprint. 10th Gen delivers the fastest UFS programming performance in the industry achieving up to 440MB per second Read and 201MB per second Write. First-part time is accelerated because UFS programming can commence without pausing for data to download.
“The BPM310 with 32 sockets and TS1500 (tray stacker) is running flawlessly– 6,000 devices and counting,” says Colin Harper, Global Sales Director and Product Manager at BPM Microsystems. “It’s great to connect with customers and industry colleagues. It’s been too long!”
BPM is partnering with its European Distributor, Adaptsys, to launch this new product into the market.
If you are attending Productronica, please come by and see the BPM310 in Hall A1, Stand 353.
BPM will also showcase the BPM310 at APEX in San Diego in January 2022 for the American audience.
Productronica, Day 1 Colin Harper and James Cawkell

Colin Harper, BPM’s Global Sales Director, and James Cawkell, BPM’s Distributor in Europe, show off the latest APS from BPM, the BPM310.

BPM Microsystems Launches the BPM310– 10th Generation Universal Automated Programming System with 48 sockets and UFS Support

BPM Microsystems Launches the BPM310– 10th Generation Universal Automated Programming System with 48 sockets and UFS Support

BPM Microsystems, Inc. announces the release of its 10th Generation programming technology platform and the BPM310 Automated Programming System. The 10th Generation offers the industry’s fastest programming times for UFS, eMMC, Flash, and MCUs with twice as many sockets per site as its predecessor. The BPM310 offers a capacity of up to 48 sockets, automotive-level quality, and reliability in a small footprint. 10th Gen delivers the fastest UFS programming performance in the industry achieving up to 440MB per second Read and 201MB per second Write. First-part time is accelerated because UFS programming can commence without pausing for data to download.

The BPM310 is positioned to outperform higher-priced systems and includes advanced features such as WhisperTeach, on-the-fly vision alignment, CSP support, serialization, encryption, and JobMaster while providing true universal technology. 10th Gen supports the broadest range of devices including MCUs, eMMC, NAND, Serial Flash, UFS, and others. Highly configurable, the BPM310 provides options for Tape I/O, Tray I/O, Tube I/O, laser marking, and 3D inspection. 

“Our engineering team has done an amazing job creating the most powerful universal programmer in the industry. Unlike competitive products, our system offers true universal support including CSP, Flash, MCUs, eMMC, and UFS with up to 8 sockets per site to deliver unbeatable system value,” says William White, founder and CEO of BPM Microsystems. “The BPM310 is now our flagship product with the greatest capacity, flexibility, features, reliability, and smallest footprint in our product line.”

“We’re excited to showcase the BPM310 at Productronica and anticipate a positive market response,” says Colin Harper, Global Sales Director at BPM. “In the past, we have demonstrated two machines at the trade show. Now we have one system that can do it all. In fact, the BPM310 is able to program as many devices concurrently as our larger system, the 4910, in a footprint about half its size while offering the same I/O flexibility and improved reliability.”

The BPM310 leverages much of the socket adapter and algorithm development currently available on its 9th Generation systems. And like all 9th Gen automated programmers, the BPM310 continues to offer ease of operation and fast setup with award-winning BPWin process control software and patented WhisperTeach. WhisperTeach automatically teaches the critical Z-height of each pick/place location with 15-micron accuracy. Accurate automated teaching is vital for small packages due to fundamental human limitations. Plus WhisperTeachTM saves an average of 83% of the time required for the job setup compared to traditional methods while increasing quality and yield.

BPM310 Automated Programmer BrandingBPM manufactures its 10th Generation systems in their ISO 9001:2015 certified plant located in Houston, Texas, and their products carry the CE Mark. BPM continues to offer 9th Generation programmers for manual and automated programming. If you are at Productronica 2021, visit Hall A1-353 from November 16 through 19, 2021 to see a live BPM310 demo. For more information on the BPM310, go to bpmmicro.com/BPM310.

End of Life for 6th, 7th, 8th Gen CyberOptics Alignment Sensor

End of Life for 6th, 7th, 8th Gen CyberOptics Alignment Sensor

Obsolescence of CyberOptics Alignment Sensor used on legacy BPM Automated Programming Systems

CyberOptics ceased manufacturing the alignment sensor used on the BPM Microsystems’ 6th through 8th Generation automated programming systems in 2014. Prior to that date, BPM Microsystems invested significantly in a “last time buy” opportunity. During the almost 8 years since the last purchase, all of BPM’s inventory is depleted.

As of March 14, 2022, BPM can no longer repair damaged legacy CyberOptics cameras.

Modern 9th and 10th Generation CyberOptics cameras are available for purchase and repair.

BPM understands the critical nature of this alignment sensor. Today, BPM provides opportunities for the purchase of refurbished replacement sensors through a non-warranty core exchange process. This process requires that “broken” sensors (the core) be sent to BPM for repair. However, not all sensors can be repaired. Therefore even this inventory is almost exhausted.

We highly recommend that all 8th Gen Automated Programmer users consider a strategy to systematically trade-in these legacy systems for modern, more productive BPM APS models. As a start BPM will provide a proposal for the trade-in of your legacy BPM APS and will be providing further recommendations for your other machines.
