Automated Programming Systems for IoT (Internet of Things)

What is IoT?

Internet of Things (IoT) is an all-encompassing category of (mostly) consumer and industrial devices that are connected to a network to receive instructions and return information. IoT is an advance on RFID tech, which was used primarily for logistics.

IoT requires immutable metadata and security protocols. Programming IoT devices require an additional set of instructions to ensure each device is correctly identified and unique. Usually, the devices programmed also receive an external identification mark, such as a laser-engraved id or QR code.

The Internet of Things includes everything from smartphones to industrial pumps, such as smart appliances, smart energy meters, wearable devices, connected/autonomous vehicles, smart home devices (thermostats, lighting, entertainment, security, etc.), industrial (tracking, logistics, supply chain, sensors, etc.), smart cities (pollution, traffic, water, parking, power, etc.), agriculture (sensors, water usage, robotic vehicles, etc.), retail (inventory, layout management, security, etc.), and healthcare (implanted devices, wearables, etc.).

Outstanding support is the #1 reason our customers come back to BPM

BPM Delivers Faster, Better, More Profitable Device Programming

  • 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.

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
