Goepel Eases Measurement of Multiple Analog Voltages


Reading time ( words)

Goepel electronic has launched the SFX/VPC-AMC128 (Analog Measurement Card), a new test extension module that can be used to measure and test analog voltages on 128 channels. The module can be easily integrated into the inline test system RAPIDO as well as into customer-specific test systems.

The analog measurement card is based on eight separate AD converters. Each can convert two channels, enabling up to 16 channels to be converted simultaneously, which means that up to 16 DUTs can be tested simultaneously in a parallel test.

Each channel can be configured and started independent of its measuring range. This makes it easy to test and measure a wide range of voltages in three different measuring ranges. Thus, both low-voltage applications and automotive applications with higher voltages (for example, 48V) can be fully supported. Each channel has an input resistance of >1 MOhm to avoid loading the hardware to be tested and effecting accuracy of the measured values.

The SFX/VPC-AMC128 is controlled by a standard Gigabit Ethernet interface, which allows easy integration into other test systems. Depending on the application, the module can be configured using the Embedded JTAG Solutions Software SYSTEM CASCON. When used in other test systems, configuration via a web interface using any browser is possible, providing, for example, remote access and targeted assistance in troubleshooting worldwide.

In our recent survey on PCBA test and inspection challenges, respondents consider the following to be among their biggest problems: probing to narrower traces and pads; testing boards with smaller and finer features and sizes; dry solder and other solder-related issues; finding sublayer defects; dealing with flat, no-lead components; and testing cycle time. This month, we look into different PCBA test and inspection strategies that address the key challenges in today’s electronics manufacturing and assembly environment.
