Description of Products, Programming Site Technology and Socket Module part numbers.
Determines the speed of programming and the ability to support newer devices.
|FSM84UP||All BPM “Finished Goods”, like socket modules and programmer models, start with F.|
|FSM144TQB||SM are the initials for “Socket Module”. SM without an A in front of it means a manual socket module that can only be used on manual programmers (1XXX and 2XXX series.) The SM designation is also present when the item is a "Replacment D-card" (See L,LX2,LX4,W,WX2, and WX4 entries) and also a "Socket Card" (See FVE2 and FVE4 entries).|
|FASMR32MLFA||A in the part number means “Automated”. Automated socket modules can be used on any BPM programmer. If there is not an "A" before the "SM" then the item is not Automated capable and can only be used on manual programmers (1XXX and 2XXX series.) ASM socket modules and SM socket modules are priced on capability.|
|FSMR32LQF||R in the part number indicates that the socket module has a"Receptacle Base" with the ability to exchange sockets through a quick-change connector.|
|FX4ASMR64XXX||FX4ASMR64LQFB||This number indicates the "Pin Count" of device that is programmable on this item.|
|FX4ASMR64BGJ||FX4ASMR64BGK||Final charaters are the "Name" of the item which distinguishes it from any other. Attempt is made to relate the name to the "Package Type" to make it more meaningful and easier to remember.|
|FASMHXXXXXXX||FASMH08MLP||"H" indicates the socket module uses a "High Performance" socket rated at 50,000 insertion cycles.|
|FASMLXXXXXX||FASML84BGD||"L" indicates the socket module uses a "Long Life" socket rated at 100,000 insertion cycles. (More in some cases).|
|FASMCXXXXXX||FASMC08MLFM||"C" indicates the socket module uses a "Compression Mount" also referred to as "Surface Mount" socket. These sockets are field replaceable but it requires more effort than "R" versions.|
|FX2ASMRXXXX||FX2ASM64CBG||"X2" indicates the socket module contains "2" daughter cards with 2 sockets total on the socket module. Use of this type of FX2 socket module is limited to all X7XX programmers (3710, 1710, 2700 etc…). Used when size of sockets does not allow for 4-socket population.|
|FX4SM56BG||"X4" indicates the socket module contains "4" daughter cards with 4 sockets total on the socket module. Use of this type of FX4 socket module is limited to all X7XX programmers (3710, 1710, 2700 etc…)|
|"VE" denotes a "Socket Card" that is used on 8th Generation programmers. "VE" is a reference to the Vector Engine which is responsible for the quick programming speed that is capable on this platform. A 2 or 4 after the "VE" as in "VE2" or "VE4" denotes an 8th gen socket card whereby 2 or 4 of the same model of socket card can be installed on each 8th gen site. If neither 2 or 4 is present then only 1 socket card is capable of being installed on each site. "G" denotes gang in the FVEG3 example and denotes a single board that has 3 sockets populated.|
|"Replacement D-card" items. When corresponding items on F,FX, and FX4 reach the end of their life cycle these items can be ordered as replacement parts.|
|"Replacement D-card" items. When corresponding items on F,FX, and FX4 reach the end of their life cycle these items can be ordered as replacement parts. These items are distinguished from the above "W' version as these are confirmed to be Pb-free and to support the programming of Pb-free devices.|
|CSOCXXXXXXXX||CSOCM32YA||"Replacement Socket" for specific socket module, socket card, or replacement D-card.|
|LSOCXXXXXXX||LSOC28SS||"Replacement Socket" for specific socket module, socket card, or replacement D-card. These items are distinguished from the above "C' version as these are confirmed to be Pb-free and to support the programming of Pb-free devices..|
