The new CheckSum V12 Measurement Card will be exhibited amongst other products at the SMT Show Nuremberg, booth 7A-421. The V12 is the latest version of CheckSum electronics that controls and runs CheckSum’s range of in-circuit and functional testing systems. The V12 card will be demonstrated in CheckSum’s range of In-Circuit and Functional Testing Systems, CheckSum will have representatives available to showcase our latest 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.
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 CheckSum is known for. With the V12’s ability to decrease test times, manufacturers will get a more efficient test process with faster returns on CheckSum testers.
The combination of control, safety, reliability and faster production makes the V12 an important piece of technology in ICT.
The V12 is the new standard measurement card for Checksum in-circuit and functional test systems and can also be easily retrofitted to existing CheckSum test systems. The V12 is available in all CheckSum in-circuit testing systems and has been shipping since December of 2014.
Also in the Ramplight - Analyst ils In Circuit ICT Tester.
Designed for testing all types of circuit assemblies the CheckSum Analyst ils has all the features of the Analyst ems, but in a package with an integrated high-speed board handler for use in an automated production and test line. The CheckSum Analyst ils combines manufacturing process testing with TestJet Technology for high fault coverage in circuit test of a single assembly or a panel of multiple assemblies in minimum time with maximum fault coverage. Providing features such as periodic sampling of UUTs passing down the line and automated recompression of probes and/or automatic retesting on failures, the Analyst ils meets sophisticated testing needs.
The Analyst ils performs effective power-down testing for most analog or digital assemblies being manufactured today quickly and easily testing through-hole and SMT circuit board assemblies for common manufacturing defects such as incorrect, missing or misoriented components, and opens and shorts. Equipped standard with TestJet Technology, Analyst can identify opens in and around most analog and digital IC packages.
