BPM Microsystems’ 2800 Universal Device Programmer Wins a Coveted 2011 NPI Award

BPM Microsystems announces that it has been awarded a 2011 NPI Award in the category Device Programming for its Model 2800, the newest addition to its manual universal device programmer family.
The award was presented to Chris Gear, Customer Service Manager, during a Tuesday, April 12, 2011 ceremony that took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas during IPC APEX 2011. The 2800 combines the unrivaled speed of Vector Engine Co-Processor® technology plus true universal device support, resulting in the fastest universal programmer in the industry.

The ultra-fast programming speed of the 2800 is attributed to BPM Microsystems’ Vector Engine Co-Processor, the same proven technology that established Flashstream® as the fastest flash-dedicated programmer. This technology uses a co-processor design to hardware-accelerate waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate the dead times so that the device under test no longer waits for the programmer. The result is programming near the theoretical limits of the silicon design — the faster the device, the faster the device is programmed.

The 2800 supports all device technologies including high density NAND Flash, NOR Flash, Serial Flash, Managed NAND Flash, EPROM, EEPROM, Flash EPROM, Microcontrollers and more with densities up to an 8Eb theoretical limit.

The new model 2800 also uses BPM Microsystems’ cost-effective and efficient socket cards with receptacle-base socket option. Individual socket cards can be fully utilized and replaced without dramatically affecting programming capacity. With the receptacle-base socket option, customers can purchase only the consumable socket as needed. The design of BPM Microsystems’ socket cards increases manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yield, and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
