BitBlast is a Vector Engine Co-Processor enhancement that is able to achieve the fastest programming speeds for high-density managed NAND devices that use the eMMC interface. For instance, by using BPM Microsystems’ model 2800 with the new BitBlast technology, the company was able to reach a program plus verify time of 460 seconds on Toshiba’s 4 GByte THGBM1G5D2EBAI7, beating its nearest competition by 307 seconds. Data I/O’s FlashCORE III with SuperBoost was able to achieve a program plus verify time of 767 seconds on the same device.
Because BitBlast can be attained via firmware changes, all 8th Generation and Flashstream® MK2 customers with models 2800, 3800, 4800, 2800F-MK2 and 3000FS-MK2 plus a current support agreement can take advantage of the enhancement by downloading the latest version of BPWin.
The company will showcase its automated 8th Generation model 3800 and its manual 8th Generation model 2800, both featuring BitBlast technology, at Productronica.
