Aerospace Programming Solutions

Whether it’s a antifuse FPGA, or a telemetry chip on a satellite, there are increasing numbers of programmed devices where failure isn’t an option; either it’s difficult or impossible to replace in the field, or failure means the potential loss of irreplaceable life and equipment (or both). When it comes to programming a mission-critical antifuse device, who is the only authorized vendor which Microsemi relies? BPM Microsystems.

According to Microsemi’s white paper, an antifuse-based FPGA is, “the most secure programmable device available.” Antifuse FPGAs are one-time programmable non-volatile device that never uses a bitstream. Once programmed, it can’t be intercepted, copied, modified, or corrupted. They are also highly impervious to radiation ("Rad-Hard"). Antifuse FPGAs have been around since the ‘90s, yet are still the most secure silicon devices available.

From a practical perspective, antifuse devices are virtually impossible to reverse engineer. For instance, to determine the difference between programmed and unprogrammed fuses requires a electron microscope, which when used, physically destroys the device in the process.

The forthcoming Silicon Sulptor is built on the BPM 9th Generation site technology; 9th Gen programming sites are the most universal, most widely developed (35K+ devices and growing), fastest sites in the industry, and have been vetted by the most rigorous and demanding requirements in the business of programming. The underlying architecture was developed from the testing industry, and is capable of generating the cleanest waveforms for the highest signal integrity, ensuring maximum trouble-free life in the field (even if that field is deep space).

  • Powered by the newest BPM 9th generation technology, programs eMMC in HS400 mode, the highest speed mode available, as well as HS200, DDR and SDR.
  • High-mix of devices on the same site, including microcontrollers, FPGA, eMMC, NAND, NOR and Serial Flash, delivering speed and versatility on one system.

BPM Microsystems is an essential business partner for the high-tech Aerospace industry. We supply critical hardware, software and consumable items to key companies, and we're here to help during these uncertain times.

Hot buttons for Aerospace/Defense

  • Existing, proven solutions for the most complex, demanding device programming– FPGA, antifuse, EEMC– from Xilinx, Microsemi, Actel, Altera, Lattice
  • Faster time to market– go from prototype to production in weeks, not months.
  • Expand vertical manufacturing capability
  • React to design changes quickly– tweaks in code can be updated to the workflow in just a few minutes
  • Intellectual Property physically protected from theft
  • Don’t have to shut down the line due to supply chain issues with programmed devices
  • Device programming is easier than ever before; Installed and operational in less than one week
  • Manual programmers can provide 10s of thousands of devices per year; when demand exceeds manual capacity, it’s easy to migrate to automated system (same sockets, software, no need to redo first article, etc.)
  • One high-speed universal platform can support millions of devices per year, at an incredibly low cost per device
  • As demand increases, it’s easy to add additional sites for more capacity. If additional capacity is needed, add additional shifts without needing highly skilled technicians
  • Lower cost solution (3901, 3928) provide the greatest value in the industry. ROI in months, not years.

BPM Delivers Faster, Better, More Profitable Device Programming for Aerospace/Telecommunications/Defense Industries

  • Fastest Programming Speeds
  • Low-cost Standard Sockets
  • Replace sockets as needed– 1, 2, or more (we don’t make you buy 4 at a time)
  • Proven Robust Automated Platforms
  • Universal Support―All Devices on One System
  • Fast Time-To-Market for New Projects
  • Simple Scalability―Add More Capacity as Needed
  • Global Service Network Provides Local Support

High-Speed Programming

Powered by the newest 9th Generation Technology, BPM automated systems deliver the fastest programming speeds in the industry for MCUs, eMMC HS400, NAND, NOR, and Serial Flash devices. BPM’s 9th Gen technology produces 200 MHz signals, transferring each byte of data in up to 2.5 ns―up to 9 times faster than competing systems.

What’s Inside

BPM’s Automated Programming Systems have up to 12 programming sites, with up to 48 individual socket cards, to support high-volume production. Our Vector Engine Co-Processor accelerates flash memory waveforms for programming near the theoretical limits of silicon design. The faster the device, the faster it’s programmed. Our 3D Vision option inspects BGA, CSP, QFP, TSOP, SOIC and J-Lead devices for lead and ball coplanarity. Marking options include Raydiance™ Laser Marker and support for third-party labelers. Software API tools integrate your manufacturing process for tight inventory control and process management.

BPM’s Vector Engine BitBlast turbocharges programming- up to 52% faster

  • Without BitBlast- 2,699.0 Seconds
  • With BitBlast- 1279.8 Seconds

True Universal Support

BPM offers True Universal Support―one solution for all your device programming requirements. It’s compatible with many existing 7th Gen and 8th Gen socket cards and algorithms, so our customers retain the value of asset investments. One universal programming site accommodates all devices, reducing the number of systems, sites, and sockets needed. That saves you money, training, complexity and floor space.

High-Quality Socket Cards

Socket cards provide the electro-mechanical interface between your device and the programmer. They deliver high-fidelity waveforms to the programmable device, ensuring very high first-pass yields. Each individual socket card can be fully utilized and easily replaced to maintain full programming capacity. Our socket card design, with a receptacle socket option, increases your manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yields, and reduces replacement costs by up to 75 percent.
