Automated Handler for Flashstream Technology

Designed to solve excessive programming times in current in-system, JTAG, and in-circuit programming production methods, the 3000FS automated handler from BPM is modeled from the current BPM 3710 handler and contains four Flashstream programming sites. Rated at 1100 devices per hour, It is flexible enough to handle parts in tray, tube, or tape for device input or output.Combining these two technologies reportedly allows the 3000FS automated flash programmer to produce a fully programmed 512Mb NAND Flash memory device every 3.4 seconds, or 1100 devices-per-hour.

The speed of Flashstream technology, which was introduced as a manual programming product in April of 2007 is reportedly due to the creation of a proprietary co-processor technology developed by BPM called Vector Engine. This technology uses a proprietary co-processor design to hardware accelerate flash memory waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate dead times when the DUT waits on the programmer. The result is programming near the theoretical limits of the silicon design
