Press release date: April 30, 2014
GOEPEL electronic announces the further development of its special tool series for the test of complex circuitry functions within the frame of the Boundary Scan software platform SYSTEM CASCON™. The advanced tools were developed in cooperation with Selex ES, an international leader in electronic and information solutions for defence, aerospace, space, civil and cyber security. The tools enable direct coupling of SYSTEM CASCON to CAE environments, e.g. Teradyne's LASAR simulator. Concurrently, the import of DTIF vectors and timing sets provides opportunities to execute deterministic dynamic functional tests on board level and combine them with other procedures such as Boundary Scan (IEEE 1149.x) or in-system programming.
"The new solutions means another quality increase in combining structural Boundary Scan test and functional circuitry test based on a unique software platform", says Thomas Wenzel, Managing Director of GOEPEL electronic's Boundary Scan Division. "In particular users in mission critical industries such as avionics and aerospace or military benefit from the extraordinarily high verification, test and diagnosis quality especially for non-Boundary Scan circuitry components, resulting in significant time and cost savings."
About ATPG/PFD IEEE 1145
The ATPG/PFD IEEE 1445 are software modules integrated in SYSTEM CASCON supporting the so-called DTIF (Digital Test Interchange Format). It is particularly used as transfer medium between simulators and Automated Test Equipment (ATE). Simulators can virtually calculate the electronic behavior of circuitries, finally producing simulation vectors that are transported to an ATE system. Consequently, the ATE system is able to execute such test sets on a physical unit under test.
The ATPG IEEE 1445 (Automatic Test Pattern Generator) enables the import of respective test data in IEEE 1445 format into the SYSTEM CASCON environment, automatically generating a consistent test procedure out of this data base.
In addition to the vectors, the precise timing as well as the interaction between test pattern are included. That means the execution of dynamic test procedures. Imported vectors can be immediately visualised and interactively modified by ATPG included viewer/editor tools. Deviations of measured vectors from set values automatically activate a diagnosis processor. That means a powerful and convenient tool suite for IEEE 1445 applications.
