Don't understand the test results of an In-Circuit Tester | 16 November, 2016

I need to extract data from a log file and sort the data in an Excel file.

Details are as follows:

- Log File is a measurement result produced by an In-Circuit Tester (no info. about it, no name, no type, nothing).

- Measurement Result is from an ICB Board (not sure what measurement it is e.g voltage, current, resistance)

- Log File is taken directly from ICT equipment but data is not in Excel format & quite difficult to understand

- I checked the property of the log file and it says the Type of file: File

Information I found out:

- I use CheckFileType.com and it says that the log file is an ASCII Text

- The 'f1' is the component name such as resistor diode etc. {@BLOCK|f1|00{@A-FUS|0|....

QUESTION: My company requested these measurements from our ICB supplier. Now the problem is that we don't know how to manage it. - Is there any recommended software/method on how to manage these datas? As in to present it nicely - What do these @RPT , @BLOCK , @FUS means?

SAMPLE DATA (not everything from the file, ):

Don't understand the test results of an In-Circuit Tester | 19 November, 2016

Does the file come off of an ICT. Next question is it an AGinet/HP/Keysight 3070.

If so you have a chance at finding out the format. It is probably posted online in the Keysight manual downloads section. I might still have an old paper copy of this set but it would weigh at least 40 Kg's and takes up a fairly large box and is in 6 to 8 volumes. Q3 Is it from some other manufacturer?

ANswer these questions first before trying to understand the contentc, it will save a lot of time and work.

Q4 Do you have the original CAD file that was used to generate this file. Clues in the file like XY's will key you in in what all the various parts mean like voltages mV ohms kohms etc.

Q5 Was the data auto generated from a set of points on the board, again this will help clue you in!

and finally Good Luck
