Acculogic’s ScanNavigator™ (powered by Victory™) software offers full support for IEEE1149.6 and IEEE1149.7 extensions to the IEEE1149.1 standard.

Acculogic, Inc., a global leader in electronics test and production solutions, announces that it will highlight its leading testing technologies in Booth #1435 at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place April 12-14, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Acculogic will showcase 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. FLS980Dxi™ uses highly repeatable closed-loop linear motor drives and joystick-like variable angle probe modules (0 to 6°) to maximize physical access

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 to be demonstrated during the show include:

  • New Fixed angle probe modules (BPM700)

  • New ThermoScan™

  • New TraceScan™

  • New High resolution camera

  • New NanoScan™  

  • New REScan™ – Reverse Engineering

Also on display at the show, the latest version of Acculogic's ScanNavigator™ (powered by Victory™) software offers full support for IEEE1149.6 and IEEE1149.7 extensions to the IEEE1149.1 standard. The ScanNavigator software is a leading suite of powerful tools for boundary scan testing and programming 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, Gigabit Ethernet and more.

Acculogic’s ScanNavigator Integrated Boundary Scan Test and Programming Environment consists of test, programming and run-time modules that use Microsoft’s .NET technology and XML to simplify test generation, increase productivity and allow full integration of test data, programming information and diagnostic databases with Acculogic’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.

Acculogic also will premier its FLS940Sxi, 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 ten variable or fixed-angle probe modules. The FLS 940Sxi offers AccuFastTM drives as standard features and can be equipped with the ScanProbeTM.

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 ten)

  • 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

Acculogic's iCT7000™ is ideal for electronics assembly manufacturers that 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 ChipScanTM and CScan™; reduced-access boundary scan testing using Acculogic’s advanced ScanNavigator™ software; fast programming of onboard FLASH and ISP components, and combinational testing using optional off-the-shelf test instruments.
