B-BOP (a program package for Block Bond-Order Potential method) is a program package for performing O(N) tight-binding (TB) calculations of molecules and bulks, based on block bond-order potential method within semi-empirical TB models.

For large-scale calculations, an O(N) scaling is achieved with respect to computational effort and memory size in the program codes. Currently, tight-binding parameters are available for carbon , carbon hydride , and silicon materials.
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations for the NEV ensemble and the geometry optimization by the steepest decent (SD) method can be performed.
