Geotest Intros PXI Semicon Test System
Test system on a cart for portability.
Irvine, CA — Geotest has introduced the TS-900, a new PXI-based test system for component, SoC and SiP test applications. Offering up to 512 channels of 100MHz each, with per-pin PMUs and an integrated receiver interface, the modular TS-900 includes a full-featured set of hardware and software capabilities for digital and mixed-signal test applications.

The custom-designed test interface supports the use of PCB DUT (Device Under Test) boards — a proven and high-performance method for interfacing to the device under test. In addition, the receiver interface's pin blocks are field configurable, allowing users to upgrade the receiver when they modify or upgrade the system for new applications. The system supports 64 to 512 dynamic digital channels as well as a range of analog, power supply and RF resources. By leveraging the performance and cost advantages of the PXI architecture, the company has been able to develop a test system for semiconductor OEMs, fabless semiconductor vendors and packaging/test vendors needing a low cost, modular and configurable test system. According to the company, the TS-900 is part of its overall business strategy to deliver cost-effective products and solutions for ATE applications.

The basic TS-900 test system includes 64, 100MHz digital I/O channels; 64 static digital I/O channels; a programmable user power supply; a system self-test and fixture. The software supplied includes the company's DIOEasy for digital waveform editing/display and ATEasy which provides an integrated and complete test executive and test development environment, allowing users to quickly develop and easily maintain test applications. In addition, software tools are available for converting digital vectors from ASCII, WGL or STIL formats. The TS-900 is available in both benchtop or cart configurations.
