Acculogic Inc., a global leader in electronic production test solutions, announces that it was awarded a 2017 Global Technology Award in the category of Test Equipment for its Scorpion BRiZ. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017 ceremony that took place during productronica in Munich, Germany. Acculogic’s Scorpion BRiZ is an automated test and programming platform that can be configured to perform in-circuit, functional and boundary tests, and in-system programming. The Scorpion BRiZ is the ultimate test platform for cost-effective, optimized solutions engineered for real production environments.

The primary goal of an electronic test strategy is to achieve the highest possible test coverage. Often, a combination of test tools and techniques needs to be integrated in order to meet this challenge. A decisive factor in selecting the optimal test strategy is cost. So, choosing a test platform that results in the highest test coverage for your investment is essential.

The Scorpion BRiZ is a unified automated test and validation platform that can consolidate any variety of circuit assembly test and programming applications into a single, compact, low-cost station. It can be engineered for any R&D or test requirement, including: analog, digital (boundary scan /JTAG), power, conformance testing of LTE/LTE-A, Bluetooth, WLAN and GPS.

The Scorpion BRiZ RFST is an advanced test platform that incorporates National Instruments (NI) data acquisition and control systems:

  • NI PXIe chassis for high performance, rapid interconnectivity between instrumentation and

  • infrastructure

  • NI Vector Signal Transceiver - fast and flexible vector signal analyzer and vector signal generator

  • NI LabVIEWTM- test development environment

  • NI TestStandTM - test management software

Across various implementations of RF transmitter, the Scorpion BRiZ RFST can perform tests and measurements that are essential to ensuring proper operation. Some of these include:

  • Channel power (CHP)

  • Adjacent channel power (ACP)

  • Unwanted signals - harmonic, intermodulation, and spurious

  • Phase noise IQ

  • Modulation quality - error vector magnitude (EVM) (also known as relative constellation error

  • (RCE))

The platform is equipped with a quick changeover, mechanical test fixture, designed with an interchangeable cassette. This is a money saving way to build test fixtures for different products.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
