Acculogic Introduces Flying Scorpion FLS940Sxi High-Performance Flying Probe Test System

WOBURN, MA - Acculogic, Inc. introduces the new single-sided low-cost version of its successful Flying Scorpion FLS900-series. The FLS940Sxi Flying Prober delivers the short programming times and high fault coverage of traditional bed-of-nails in-circuit test for prototype, ramp-up and low-volume/high-mix test applications.

“In-circuit testers that use bed-of-nails fixtures do not always deliver the optimum test strategy for every production environment,” said Greg LeBlonc, Product Manager for the Manufacturing Test Systems Division-Markham. “Even if the expense could be justified, the time to build and modify fixtures during prototype test and production ramp-up is simply too long. For very high-mix/low-volume environments, the cost of a bed-of-nails fixture cannot be justified. Acculogic’s Flying Scorpion solves these problems by eliminating the cost and cycle time of a bed-of-nails fixture.”

The FLS940Sxi adds a lower cost solution to the already powerful Scorpion Flying Probe Tester line. In addition to its no-compromise single-sided test capability, the system can be equipped with up to 10 variable or fixed-angle probe modules. The FLS940Sxi offers AccuFast™ drives as standard features and can be equipped with the ScanProbe™.

“We believe that the system’s low cost as well as ScanProbe™ and full integration of boundary scan, together with increased accuracy, dynamic response and reliability provided by the AccuFast™ technology will enable the Flying Scorpion to migrate more customers from in-circuit test to flying probers in the next two years,” said LeBlonc. With boundary scan-power fully unleashed, test coverage can be maintained at levels comparable to what is achieved on in-circuit testers and test cycle times will be held to acceptable levels for low-/medium-volume production.

The FLS940Sxi offers all the test capabilities of the double-sided FLS980Dxi in a single-sided configuration including:

  • Ease of use and programming with QuickTestTM

  • Multi-Probe testing (up to 10)

  • Variable angle 3-D probing

  • High fault coverage power-off in-circuit test

  • Power-on testing including Boundary Scan JTAG, on-board device programming and function testing

  • Linear surface motors for no-access limitation, simpler mechanics, easier maintenance, and superior reliability and speed

  • Largest available probing area of 1,050 x 640 mm for handling large boards

According to Leblanc, “Traditional flying probers have several weaknesses including marginal reliability, expensive maintenance, inability to accommodate large boards and single-sided probing only. The Acculogic FLS900-series Flying Prober addresses all of these limitations, resulting in the best solution in the market.”

The Acculogic FLS940Sxi Flying Prober will begin shipping in January 2011. Availability is 6-8 weeks ARO.
