Rapidly Cut Programming Time and Boost Your Profits with the HelixFS Desktop Device Programmer for Flash and Other Devices

Device Programmer - Helix

HelixFS - Uses Proprietary Flashstream Technology

The HelixFS is a revolutionary desktop device programmer that's designed specifically to program NAND, NOR, Serial flash, EPROM, and EEPROM devices.

Desktop Flash or Universal Automated Programmer

The site technology is interchangeable for dedicated flash or universal programming hardware. Simply replace your Flashstream sites with 7th Generation site technology and you have an Automated Universal Programmer, giving it the greatest flexibility in the device programming industry. See how the HelixFS can make your profits sky-rocket.

The HelixFS system is designed to handle a wide range of packages including, but not limited to BGA, MSOP, SOIC, PLCC, SSOP and TSSOP.

Breakthrough Speed ... Reducing Cost Per Device

For example, the Samsung 512Mb OneNAND KFG1216Q2A-DEB5 programs at 12 times faster than current flash programmer technology. The device was cycled through functions of erase, program, verify of a random full data pattern in an amazing 15.4 seconds while staying within manufacturer specified programming requirements.

If you could program flash memory devices with the lowest programming overhead on the planet, how much higher would your profits be?

* Times are for quantity 4 of 512 Mb Samsung OneNAND™ KFG1216Q2A-DEB5 with functions of Erase, Program, and Verify. Erase function is inside the programming time listed. Full address range of device programmed with random pattern. ** Times will vary based on device characteristics.

Programming Times for Select Flash Devices

The Secret

Developed by our elite team of engineers, the secret is in our proprietary Vector Engine Co-Processor ® , which gives the Flashstream® the programming industry's lowest programming overhead, while maintaining the highest production quality programming signal; an industry first for production programming.

Takes One Second to get Breakthrough Technology in Your Hands

Fig. 1: The HelixFS comes with Flashstream programming site technology to deliver the fastest DPH for flash devices.



Fig. 2: Transfer parts to and from the tube with the Tube option.

The HelixFS-TU offers two precision-designed tube input and output-handling systems to allow for the transfer of parts to and from the tube.

The tube media system is designed to be highly reliable, while still being able to offer throughputs of up to 800 DPH.


Fig. 3: Program devices hands-free with the Tray option.

The HelixFS–TR automated flash vector programming system, with integrated tray handling, provides hands-free programming of programmable flash devices.

The precision tray system is designed to handle a 2-tray capacity while integrated software accounts and handles reject parts, and offers throughputs of up to 800 DPH.

Precision automated handling capability combined with proven programming technology has expanded our automated system product line to offer an alternative solution for medium volume production programming of flash devices.

Top 3 Flashstream FAQ - Answered

Q: How soon can I get my device supported?

A: Typically 2-3 weeks depending on socket and device availability. We now have an option for expedited support in 2-5 business days. However, we currently support thousands of devices and are increasing our support daily. Contact us about your device.

Q: How is your programmer faster, if your competitor states that they are also at the theoretical minimum of devices?

A: It's true that our competitors have responded to our innovation. However, the main thing to look at is, how long it takes for them to verify the information that was transfered to the device correctly.
The Flashstream is as much as 60 times faster at verification than anyone in the market on certain devices. This is the information not being provided by our competitors. We pride ourselves in being up-front with you from the start.

Q: Can I use the Helix Flashstream or Universal 7th Gen sites as a manual programmer when they are not installed in the Helix?

A: Yes, the sites can be used as fully-functioning manual two-site programmers when not installed in the Helix. This will allow you to take full advantage of your assets.
