BPM Microsystems Inc. is set to launch a new device programmer to add to its line of manual universal device programmers that is touted by the company as the industry's fastest universal programmer.

According to BPM Microsystems, its Vector Engine co-processor is the reason behind the ultra-fast programming speed of the 2800 programmer. This technology uses a co-processor design to hardware-accelerate waveforms during the programming cycle, said the company. Synchronous operations produce faster speeds that eliminate dead time. As such, the device gets programmed fastera speed that approaches the theoretical limits of the silicon design, BPM Microsystems added.

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 device programmer also uses the company's cost-effective and efficient socket cards with receptacle-base socket option, said BPM Microsystems. Individual socket cards can be completely 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 BPM Microsystems' socket cards increases manufacturing up-time, produces higher first-pass yield and saves replacement costs by as much as 75 percent, according to the company.
