Acculogic: Ground-Breaking Test Technologies
Scorpion CT7200 in-circuit tester.
Maple Grove, MN — Acculogic GmbH is showcasing its FLS 980Dxi Flying Scorpion, the only patented double-sided, multi-probe (22) 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. The FLS980Dxi uses closed-loop linear motor drives and joystick-like variable angle probe modules (0 to 6x) to maximize physical access and guarantee repeatable probing of today's small device geometries, including fine-pitch devices and 0201 and 01005s packages.

Using the patented vectorless test suite, PinScan, the FLS900 series detects open-pin and orientation faults on digital devices, polarized caps and connectors. New features and enhancements to the system: fixed angle probe modules (BPM700); ThermoScan; TraceScan; LaserScan; high resolution camera; NanoScan; REScan; plus reverse engineering.

Also being shown, the latest version of the company's ScanNavigator (powered by Victory) software that offers full support for IEEE1149.6 and IEEE1149.7 extensions to the IEEE1149.1 standard. The ScanNavigator software is a suite of powerful tools for boundary scan test development 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, as well as Gigabit Ethernet.

ScanNavigator Integrated Boundary Scan Test and Programming Environment consists of test, device programming and run-time modules that use Microsoft's .NET technology and XML to simplify test generation and , increase productivity. ScanNavigator integrates reduced access test, device programming and diagnostic databases with the company'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, the 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.

The company's iCT7000 is suitable for electronics assembly manufacturers who require high throughput, test accuracy and proven reliability at lower test costs. The InCircuit Scorpion is a small footprint in-circuit tester 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.

Test capabilities of the InCircuit Scorpion include standard shorts and opens testing; analog value and analog function testing; Vectorless Opens testing using ChipScan and CScan; reduced-access boundary scan testing using advanced ScanNavigator software; fast programming of onboard FLASH and ISP components, and combinational testing using optional off-the-shelf test instruments.
