Goepel Extends Support for Embedded JTAG Solutions Technology

Reading time ( words)

Goepel electronic is extending support for embedded JTAG solutions technology for the SPEA4060 flying probe testers. As a result, analogue pin cards from the flying probe test system (FPT) can now also be used in digital boundary scan tests--resulting in an even higher test coverage.

The flying probe test method can be used for flexible testing of discrete analogue components. Combining this with Goepel electronic embedded JTAG solutions opens up a vast range of possibilities for enhanced, interactive testing. Previously, only digital resources from the SPEA4060 could be used for this in JTAG/boundary scan testing. Users who exclusively used analogue pin cards in the FPT system were therefore unable to benefit from the advantages of the two combined test technologies.

On account of the long-standing and close cooperation between SPEA and Goepel electronic, customers have a sophisticated and well-established package of hardware and software available to them, which can be perfectly integrated in the SPEA4060 flying probe testers. The more cost-effective analogue pin cards also offer potential customers an enormous price advantage when making use of system integration with Goepel electronic.

Design for Test in the U.S. Market

03/17/2016 | W. Scott Fillebrown, LIBRA INDUSTRIES INC.
With most high-volume printed circuit assembly being sent outside the United States, we have a unique challenge for testing the lower volume/high turnover assemblies domestically. However, with a little planning and the right contract manufacturer (CM), test does not need to be an issue.

In-Circuit Pin Testing: An Excellent Potential Source of Value Creation

06/17/2015 | Mitch Holtzer, Alpha
In-circuit pin testing (ICT) is a common method of inspecting electronic assemblies to measure the effectiveness of the assembly process and to predict electrical functionality. In this article, Mitch Holtzer talks about ICT and how its accuracy can bring significant competitive advantage to assemblers. He also provides an example of doing ICT in an assembly.

Test Match: Partnering Specialist Boundary-Scan with ICT

06/09/2015 | Robert Thompson, XJTAG
Devices like BGAs with inaccessible pins restrict the coverage possible using ordinary flying probe testing. Augmenting flying probe with boundary-scan can help overcome this problem, as well as deliver additional valuable benefits.
