New V12 Measurement Card ensures greater safety and control with lower voltage stimuli and decreased test times for In-Circuit and Functional Testing.
Arlington, WA, November 4, 2014 The new CheckSum V12 Measurement Card will be unveiled at Electronica 2014. The V12 is the latest version of CheckSum electronics that controls and runs CheckSum’s range of in-circuit and functional testing systems.
CheckSum will be partnered with MTQ Test Solutions in Hall A1, Booth 558, and will have representatives available to showcase the technology.
The V12 uses lower voltage stimulus to safely test your PCB devices
The V12 performs power-off in-circuit tests using test voltages as low as 50mV to protect delicate circuits from electrical overstress (EOS). This allows for testing IC’s and other sensitive devices without accidentally powering them up, thereby preventing possible component damage at ICT.
"The V12 brings CheckSum into an exciting new phase for all of our in-circuit testers," stated John VanNewkirk, President and CEO of CheckSum.
"Manufacturers can now utilize a low-cost in-circuit tester that will provide a safer testing process for your PCBs by controlling the voltage applied to the new generation of chips that are placed on the PCBs.
As semiconductor technology moves to lower and lower voltage, it is important for CheckSum to get out in front of the trend and provide a platform that can help customers dealing with aging ICT platforms that were designed long before people expected chips to run at such low voltages.”
The newest version of the card decreases test times and increases throughput for ICT and FT measurements
The V12 utilizes advanced digital signal processing to provide unprecedented test speed, resulting in decreased test times, along with the measurement stability that CheckSum is known for.
"With the V12’s ability to decrease test times, manufacturers will get a more efficient test process with faster returns," VanNewkirk added.
"The combination of control, safety, reliability and faster production makes the V12 an important piece of technology in ICT.”
V12 to be integrated starting December 2014
The V12 will be available for integration into all CheckSum in-circuit testing systems in December of 2014.
