Ultra-Fast Flash Programming from BPM
Ultra-fast flash programmer.
Houston, TX — BPM Microsystems' model 2800 is the newest addition to its manual universal device programmer family. The unit combines the speed of Vector Engine Co-Processor® technology plus true universal device support, resulting in what is reportedly the fastest universal programmer in the industry.

The ultra-fast programming speed of the Vector Engine Co-Processor is 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, and microcontrollers with densities up to an 8Eb theoretical limit.

The new unit also uses the company's cost-effective and efficient socket cards with receptacle-base socket option. Individual socket cards can be fully used 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 the socket cards increases manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yield, and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent.
