Healthcare Programming Solutions

Healthcare is advancing. The need to quickly develop needed medical devices has never been more critical. Nearly all advanced healthcare devices and systems require massive programming resources; even "older" tech, such as X-Ray (which was developed at the end of the 19th Century), is 100% digital. PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) gives healthcare providers the ability to quickly share massive data files via secure internet or internal network. Most capital medical equipment (such as PET CT and MRI scanners) are built-to-order; they require many different kinds of programmable devices (high mix) at very low volume. Hence, larger systems typically either outsource their programming or utilize high quality manual programming systems. Implantable devices (such as pacemakers) and diagnostic equipment (such at digital thermometers and blood pressure cuffs) require higher volumes of high quality programmed devices. Many healthcare technology providers are considering the advantages of bringing automated programming in-house. BPM builds systems that are simple to operate and provide consistent, high quality, high throughput without requiring additional architectural expenses (only power and a pressurized air line).

BPM Microsystems is an essential business partner for Healthcare. We supply critical hardware, software and consumable items to key healthcare companies, and we're here to help during these uncertain times.

Hot buttons for Healthcare

  • Safety– Ensure high-quality of programmable devices to ensure maximum use
  • Security– Unhackable implants (such as pacemakers)
  • Traceability– Healthcare devices require the strictest compliance
  • Faster time to market– go from prototype to production in weeks, not months.
  • 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.

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

SanDisk SDIN8DE4-64G (with DDR)

  • 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.

Complete Ecosystem

BPM Microsystems has ownership of all designs, manufacturing, and support for all programming sites, robotics, vision systems, and software, so we can provide unmatched support and responsiveness
