PACKAGING FOR FLASHPORT SOFTWARE

by Dolla Crater and Carter Hoss

  The FLASHport Software Package diagram shown in Figure 1 provides for delivering software for Infrastructure products in the form of firmware (programmed EPROMS), floppy disks, tapes and CD roms. The software package contents include the so&are media (firmware, floppy disks, tapes or CD rams), the label to seal software in a static bag, two foam pads used to hold EPROMs in place, an upgrade user's guide, and software license agree- ment and software warranty.

  Figure 1 depicts the position of each package content. The software media (e.g. programmed EPROMs) is placed in Position A, the label which is used to seal the static bag which the EPROMs are placed inside is labeled as Position B, the two foam

pads which hold the EPROMs in place are labeled as Position C and the upgrade user's guide and soft- ware license agreement and warranty are inserted in Position D.

  This FLASHport Software Package design enables Motorola to deliver software as part of an automated process to ship from the Land Mobile Products Sector's manufacturing facilities. In addi- tion, it enables Motorola to clearly define software guidelines for the acceptance, installation and usage of it's software goods. In the event that the software goods are returned, the software package contents must be untampered and in the original software package.
