7.0.4 Release Notes

7.0.4 Release Notes


  • Added a Z self-test motion diagnostic for 4x systems equipped with a Z encoder. This includes some 4900 and all 4910 autohandler systems. This diagnostic executes a sequence of tests to find possible failures and provides recommended actions. Access the Z self-test in the BPWin Motion Diagnostics accessible through the Autohandler menu: Autohandler->Pick-and-Place->Diagnostics. For example, here is a screenshot of the Motion Diagnostics Report where the Z-axis encoder is not connected to the headboard:

  • Improved use of the theta encoder during axis motion to correct failed attempts to arrive at the commanded destination. Added useful debugging log information to help operators pinpoint any hardware faults. In the case of consistent theta failures, the theta speed will decrease incrementally to keep the machine running. This enables operators to finish the current job and address any hardware failures afterward.

Other Updates

  • Added logging information to include the list of selected operations when loading Job Master (.bp) and Automated Job Master (.abp) files.
  • Upgraded the onboard 64GB eMMC memory sticks used in 8th Generation programmers. Customers with 8th Generation programmers that have memory sticks of 32GB can upgrade to this 64GB memory stick. Contact customer support for details. This is part of BPM’s commitment to supporting legacy programmer models in the field.
  • Implemented registry key for administrators to control access to the maximum laser power limit configuration. For further information contact Customer Service.

7.0.3 Release Notes


  • Corrected device placement orientation when automatically removing devices from sockets after sites are taught in sequence. This only occurred when teaching with the options “Full Teach Primary / Fast Teach Secondary”, “Full Teach Every Socket”, or “Fast Validate and Adjust”. This behavior was only present in autohandler systems that use the CyberOptics alignment sensor.
  • Resolved errors when running BPWin in APS simulation mode.
  • Corrected an undesired change in behavior when teaching automated programmer sites in sequence. The correct behavior is to iterate through them in numerical order. Behavior had changed in BPWin 7.0.1 such that the master site was taught first and then the remaining.
  • Improved debugging information given to the operator if:
    • The Z encoder test fails during APS initialization.
    • The SD cards present in the programmer site mismatch expected serial numbers.
  • Resolved a problem where a JobMaster file could not be saved when Custom37 Bad Block Management scheme was selected.

Device Support Update

Device Name Programmer Criticality Changes Made & Reasons Socket Module
Macronix MX66U51235FXDI-10G 2800/3800/3800-MK2/4800 Critical The algorithm has been updated to resolve reading and verifying issues. FVE4ASM24BGB, FVE4ASMC24BGJ
Atmel ATSAMD20J18A-AU 2610/3610/4610 Recommended Algorithm has been updated to support all non-reserved bits in the user row. ASMR64TQFP

7.0.2 Release Notes


  • Improved the BPWin API to provide users the option to allow BPWin to show message boxes that require operator intervention. By default, the API is aimed to run BPWin unassisted, but this new feature helps users who plan to interact with it in order to resolve arising issues during operation. This feature can be enabled via registry key “ForceToPopupMessageUsingAPI” in the path “BP Microsystems\BPWin\Configuration”.
  • Improved RPI format data parser to support listing optional configurations with no right value assignment. RPI is a format specific to Renesas devices.
  • Improved software by allowing users to customize the maximum runout threshold for Autohandler Systems. This customization can be done via the registry keys “UpperRunoutRange_mils” and “LowerRunoutRange_mils” in the path “BP Microsystems\BPWin\AutoHandler\Components\Pnp\NozzleRunout”.
  • Updated continuity check to improve performance with low voltage devices on all site generations.

Other Updates

  • Fixed an issue on the 3X autohandlers where the laser diagnostics dialog would allow the laser door, elevator, and nozzles to move while the door was open.
  • Fixed an issue happening after placing a device that sticks to the tip of the nozzle for a few milliseconds. In that event, the device was being grabbed again during upward motion due to incorrectly turning the vacuum on too soon. This issue was only affecting 3X autohandler systems with the LNC-120 Cyber Camera.

7.0.1 Release Notes

BPWin Highlights

  • The CyberOptics LNC120 camera was made more robust to recover from Ethernet communication failures and temporary power loss.
  • Improved the stepper motor control on 9th Gen sites to extend motor life and to balance pressure plate actuation.
  • Implemented better error detection in the vacuum system on 4000 Series and 3000 Series APS with on-the-fly vision alignment.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • BERT values can now be changed during successive jobs for raw NAND programming on 9th Gen sites. The BERT setting allows the user to determine how many bit errors per page are acceptable for your job.
  • Added a feature to the Motorola MHX format to save the ranges containing data. Certain devices require this feature to program the default buffer value.
  • Software identifies the correct site number when a 9th Gen site fails memory card initialization.

Other Updates

  • Resolved intermittent BPWin crash when launching Windows 10.
  • Corrected placement at the reject location when there are alignment failures in the 4000 series APS.
  • Improved error messaging to warn an operator when they have the wrong socket cards installed.
  • Eliminated false errors logged in the Blackbox log file.

7.0.0 Release Notes

BPWin Highlights

  • Windows 10 Support
    Many of you have asked for Windows 10 support for BPWin– it’s now available with the launch of version 7.0.0. BPWin is currently compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 10, 64-Bit operating system; users can now take advantage of the newest Windows operating system with greater speed, security, and access to the latest OS updates. Please contact Inside Sales to determine if you need additional hardware for your Automated Programming System, including:

    • FPCAUTO06 host computer
    • Galil 4040 Motion Controller
    • Fiber Laser – Prolase 10 Dongle
    • Valid Software Support Contract
    • ScannerTech 3D Inspection – updated Host Controller Card

    Manual programmers require a host computer with 2.0 GHz processing speed or faster, Minimum 2GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive (SSD Recommended) and a current software support agreement.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • Improved 9th Gen compatibility with previous generation programmers
  • Updated continuity check to improve performance with low voltage devices
  • Implemented automatic updates for sites with hardware revision IPR-106
  • Improved the image format tool time performance for HS200/400 devices
  • Fixed hardware timeout issues during 9th Gen diagnostics with certain socket cards

Other Updates

  • Added support to allow for installing multiple Device Support Update (DSU) versions with the same BPWin version on the programmer’s host computer
  • Fixed a crash when accessing the JobMaster Configure dialog without running as Administrator

6.4.6 Release Notes

BPM 3000/4000 Series Autohandler

  • Released 4900 optional field upgrades for enhanced reliability and ease of use.
  • Implemented the ability to adjust the inspection height for Scanner Tech 3D systems. If the default device measurements do not produce the optimal inspection height, the operator can now fine-tune height offsets to maximize yield.
  • Enabled the Real-Time Job Summary report by default. If for any reason the system shuts down unexpectedly, the Job Summary is captured up to that moment and available for review.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • Automatically reload BP file when switching programmer model in BPWin to ensure the correct device configuration options are set.

Other Updates

  • Fixed an issue observed with certain devices where the program and verify operations would fail when using multiple sites.
  • Fixed an issue that began with BPWin 6.4.3 where the program operation would not begin if pre-session diagnostics is enabled.
  • Resolved a bug on 9th Gen that caused certain socket cards to fail diagnostics.
