FiS640 Compact In-Circuit Test System

FiS640 Compact In-Circuit Test System

WOBURN, MA - Acculogic's Manufacturing Test Systems Division, a global leader in electronics test and production solutions, announces that it will feature the latest testing technologies booth 249 at the upcoming IPC/APEX conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place April 6-8, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

FLS 980Dxi Flying Scorpion is the only patented double-sided, multi-probe (16) Flying Probe system with 3-D probing, analog, digital and boundary scan test capability on all probes (top and bottom side).

Shrinking component sizes and denser packaging technologies are posing new challenges to test. FLS980Dxi uses highly repeatable closed-loop linear motor drives and joystick-like variable angle probe modules (0° to 6°) to maximize physical access and guarantee repeatable probing of fine-pitch devices and small components such as 0201 and 01005s.

Using the patented vectorless test suite, PinScan™, the FLS900 series detects open-pin and orientation faults on digital devices, polarized caps and connectors.

The FiS640 Compact In-Circuit Test System is a small footprint in-circuit tester (ICT) that can be configured with up to 2048 all-real (non-multiplexed) channels, a high-accuracy analog measurement instrument, and patented Vectorless test techniques for detection of open pins on digital devices. It is available with a number of industry-standard fixture interfaces for preserving current investments and minimizing transition costs.

"The FiS640 is designed to be a low-cost ICT solution for the high- and medium-volume automotive, industrial, consumer, computer and communications electronics market," said Farouk Eshragi, VP of the Manufacturing Test systems Division. "It combines the reliability and performance of Acculogic's proven ICT technologies, with the convenience of a user-friendly test programming environment, and a worldwide network of support and service".

System hardware is controlled by Acculogic’s IntegratorTM worksheet-based software, which is simple to learn and use, and that can save days of program development and debug time. The FiS640 is fully supported by Acculogic’s XMATICTM software suite. XMATIC is used to translate CAD designs, import bills of materials data, optimize data for selected manufacturing equipment, assign test probe locations and output customized files.

Test capabilities for the FiS640 include standard shorts and opens testing; analog value and analog function testing; Vectorless Opens testing using ChipScanTM and CScan™; reduced-access boundary scan testing using Acculogic's advanced ScanNavigator™ software; fast programming of on board FLASH and ISP components; and combinational testing using optional off-the-shelf test instruments.

The latest version of Acculogic's ScanNavigator™ and Victory™ software offers full support for IEEE1149.6, an extension to the IEEE1149.1 standard. ScanNavigator software is a leading suite of powerful tools for boundary-scan testing and programming based on the original JTAG standard, IEEE 1149.1. The new version of ScanNavigator has been extended to support the latest boundary-scan technology for the testing of high-speed buses and interfaces such as LVDS, Fiber Channel, Gigabit Ethernet and more.

Acculogic's ScanNavigator Integrated Boundary Scan Test and Programming Environment consists of test, programming and run-time modules that use Microsoft's .NET technology and XML to simplify test generation, increase productivity, and allow full integration of test data, programming information, and diagnostic databases with Acculogic's testability and coverage analysis tools. Based on the premise that all boundary scan test and onboard programming activities rely on a number of common data preparation steps, ScanNavigator architecture is optimized for data sharing and portability to reduce development time and increase data reuse.

ScanNavigator-dot6 supports IEEE1149.6 as an optional feature that can be incorporated into any ScanNavigator Virtual Interconnect Test (VIT), making the implementation of 1149.6 tests practically transparent to the user.
