Release Notes on BPWin Software

6.4.5 Release Notes

BPM 3000/4000 Series Autohandler

  • Improved the accuracy of the package auto-measure feature for leaded devices. The dimensional data gathered by the CyberOptics alignment camera is automatically populated into the package fields, reducing operator input.
  • The package-teach pick/place overdrive settings have been updated to include better default values for WhisperTeach systems to make the initial package setup faster.
  • Allowed BPWin to accommodate FVEG3 socket cards properly.
  • Added the ability to pause a job when a socket reaches its preset maintenance interval. This feature is enabled via a registry key.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • We added the ability for BPWin to identify and properly ID manual 9th generation programmers. These manual programmers IDed as “Automated Sites” will now be updated. JobMaster files are compatible; however, we recommend you resave the “.bp” file to eliminate the warning message that appears when loading.
  • Fixed the Image Formatting Tool to support DDR algorithms.
  • Updated the initialization sequence for 1-Up 9th Gen d-cards, improving yield.

Other Updates

  • Fixed a “Debug Assertion Failed” error message with expression “c>=-1 && c<=255” when loading data files with special ASCII characters.

6.4.4 Release Notes

BPWin Highlights

Broad support for HS400/HS200 modes for eMMC devices on 9th Generation sites and existing socket cards.

  • Program/Verify at up to 148 MBytes/second and beyond.
  • Support for these modes can be requested for existing eMMC devices that follow JEDEC specs 5.0 and above.
  • Built-in high speed image format tool specific for file extension types .bpmhs400 and .bpmhs200.

BPM 3000/4000 Series Autohandler

  • Updated the JobMaster Lockdown feature to be self-contained so that multiple systems can use the same ABP file without having to match the job permissions.
  • APS users now have the option to ignore the “nozzle is too large/small” warning message displayed after homing the nozzle.
  • Improved the operation of 9th Gen site stepper motors to prevent socket close failures.

6.4.3 Release Notes

BPM 3000/4000 Series Autohandler

  • Improved site stepper motor cycling on 8th and 7th generation APS by stopping the motors when the interlock is open. 9th Gen automated programmers already have this behavior.
  • Increased the range of 9th Gen socket motor force, up to 40 lbs.
  • Changed the 3D inspection motion sequence for leaded devices to capture images in a two-step inspection process.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • Added support for Renesas RPI Data Pattern file format.
  • Enabled BPWIn to update the CPLD pattern for some legacy 9th Gen manual programmers. If your programmer requires an update, the CPLD will be reflashed automatically within approximately 10 seconds. Please run diagnostics after the update and reload your programming job.
  • Improved buffer blank check feature to limit the error conditions to only Program, Verify, and Compare operations.
  • Fixed bug for Renesas UPD70F3532F1A9-KN7-Q-A (HCU Hex) on 9th Gen programmers.

6.4.2 Release Notes

BPWin Highlights

  • Added a feature to secure JobMaster files and ensure they can never be modified. This feature can be found in the JobMaster/Configure named “Lockdown JobMaster Files”. When JobMaster files are saved while this is checked those JobMaster files will disallow changes to any settings, regardless of the user having entered the Supervisor password and/or the Job Protection password.  This feature is ideal for critical job files that must not change.
  • Added checks to ensure hardware & software compatibility on 9th Gen programmers. 9th Gen programmers with CPLD versions prior to 107h will require an update which will be made available in BPWin 6.4.3. Run diagnostics to determine the site CPLD version.

BPM 3000/4000 Series Autohandler

  • Fixed an issue happening on upward vision systems where vision alignment was skipped when using the label presenter. This applies to the 3800MK2 and 3900 APS.
  • Resolved intermittent site motor failures that sometimes occur when the APS door is opened during the site open/close cycle.
  • Fixed a crash experienced when running a job session with Mechanical Benchmark as the device selection with an empty buffer.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • Resolved Read and Compare issues for eMMC devices on 9th Gen.
  • Added a feature which allows the user to abort the checksum calculation while loading a data pattern.

6.4.1 Release Notes

BPWin Highlights

In the latest BPWin release, we’ve implemented a new feature that allows our users to retry all device operation failures, which improves the job yield. Other highlights include:

  • Improving our debugging tools to allow us to resolve most issues faster.
  • Improving 8th and 9th generation site initialization upon BPWin startup by reducing firmware download average time by 28%.

BPM 3000/4000 Series Autohandler

  • Resolved error handling when an automated programmer stops moving after a placement failure on the 3800MK2 and 3900 model autohandlers.
  • Improved the pick retry feature that allows the handler to compensate for tray irregularities or similar events when the initial pick attempt fails.
  • Resolved a random issue where site stepper motors do not fully cycle on 9th Gen automated programming sites.
  • Added a message to the operator indicating it is necessary to close the safety door interlock when trying to execute the open/close socket feature.
  • Updated the process instructions when fast validating multiple sites. Removed message to “remove device” when not applicable.
  • Improved the description of the socket disable feature in the programmer settings so that socket failures are distinguished from site failures.
  • Updated the Z encoder error message with additional instructions and troubleshooting information.

Device Programming Enhancements

  • Enhanced reporting so that the BPWin Job Summary Report now lists a count of all device operation failure types that have occurred for each socket.
  • Enabled 9th Gen firmware to categorize and log fatal errors in the blackbox file.
  • Resolved an issue where BPWin was invoking serialization at the wrong time for pre-broadcast algorithms.
  • Fixed a problem to allow BPWinLauncher to launch the correct version of BPWin if the .bp file was created in BPWin v6.2.10 or later.
  • Updated replacement socket information published on our website so that only sockets installed with receptacles are identified as the “replacement socket.”
  • Improved the job summary report to properly identify the last serial number used in a serialization job.
