BPM Micro announces the planned End of Life for all parallel port programmers in BPWin

Effective with the release of BPWin version 5.34.0 in August 2013, BPM Microsystems will no longer support programmers that communicate via the parallel port due to the incompatibility of the programmer’s parallel port driver in versions of Windows Vista and beyond.

The following parallel port programmer models will be included in this discontinuation of support:

Engineering 1600, 1700, Silicon Sculptor II
Concurrent 2600, 2700, 2700M
Automated 3600, 3700, 4600, 4700

These models can continue to function with existing BPWin software released prior to BPWin 5.34.0, but will not be eligible for algorithm additions or algorithm updates. Hardware contracts will also not be available for sale.

As a reminder, BPM Microsystems will discontinue site repairs, service and calibration on these parallel port programmers effective February 14th, 2012.

Customers with these models who require support will be encouraged to upgrade to newer generation models.
