Model name : BBF-8W

Backup Boot Flash Module-SO8W(207mil) socket

The Backup Boot Flash is an ingenious tool that forces the application controller to work automatically on the backup SPI Flash inserted in the BBF SO8W socket and no longer on the Main Serial Flash soldered on board. When connected, the BBF tool will automatically disable the Main Serial Flash that doesn’t need to be unsoldered.

The BBF tool can be connected to the application with:

  • BBF cable (included) to the application 2X4 2.54mm pin header
  • BBF cable (included) to our SMT 1.27mm Pin Header (included) soldered in place of the Main Serial flash footprint for a better stability.
  • SO8 Test Clip (to be purchased separately) to be connected on the Main Serial flash package soldered on board (no need of connector).


The Serial Flash can be easily changed manually thanks to the SO8W socket or even updated by connecting our SF100 programmer. The SF100 programmer is completely transparent for the application and will offer to developer high flexibility for code trials or update. The BBF is frequently used to boot failing computers and use the Flash Utility tools to update the corrupted Bios memory.

Features :

  • Compatible with most of the applications (no hardware modification needed)
  • Disable automatically the Main Serial Flash soldered on board (No need to unsolder it)
  • Main Serial Flash can be enabled again with a switch on the BBF tool
  • Backup Serial Flash can be easily updated by connecting the SF100 programmer
