Digitaltest at Productronica 2007, booth A1.365

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) At this year’s Productronica show, Digitaltest GmbH will demonstrate its full range of hardware and software incorporated into a comprehensive selection of test solutions for electronics manufacturers. Highlights of the show will be amongst others the company's innovative Condor Flying Probe, Lambda tester, MTS30 FCT solution and its software offerings - all with new features.

Condor 500 Flying Probe System II Front Loader-Digitaltest will showcase its second generation Flying Prober Condor 500, the latest addition to its suite of electronic test solutions. The new development shows a shuttle concept with easy front board loading.

Using unique drive technology and linear motors to give high speed and high accuracy in fine-pitch applications, the Condor 500 is 30% faster than previous models. Integrated boundary-scan is an option on this platform. To counter concerns manufacturers have about the damage caused by conventional probe testing techniques, particularly in complex and high-density boards, Digitaltest has integrated its ‘Soft Landing’ technology into the Condor 500.

MTS Lambda In-Circuit Tester New!

Throughputs can now be doubled on Digitaltest’s Lambda concept, which enables two test heads to work in parallel. The system has been designed by Digitaltest to address the key features demanded of modern manufacturing test - flexibility, high fault coverage and easy programming. The MTS 300 Lambda flexibility is guaranteed by its comprehensive range of test methods combined with a modular design that allows its optimal configuration for current needs without compromising the possibilities of future expansion. Future changes to individual test methods, as well as to the configuration of test pins, can be easily effected with the MTS300 Lambda. The range of test techniques includes analog and digital in-circuit test capabilities, vectorless testing, functional test, boundary-scan (optional) and on-board programming. The system is also one of the fastest machines on the market - its capacity for 1,000 measurements/sec making it ideal for high volume applications.

Due to its non-multiplexed system structure, the MTS system family is able to emulate existing test programs and fixtures from other platforms like Aeroflex (Marconi), GenRad(7x and 8x), Teradyne (18xx series), Agilent (HP3070), and Rohde & Schwarz. This ability to exchange programs and fixtures with other test manufacturers' systems effectively makes the MTS a 'neutral platform', which can save both time and money. The tester will be displayed with a new converter, which makes any migration from legacy testers easy. This is particularly important for customers still using ATE equipment designed in the 1970s and 1980s, who are now facing problems with part obsolence and field service support for their outdated systems.

New 19" Functional Test Rack MTS30 -User-Specific Instruments Applications-In addition to the MTS’ functional test modules, the system also offers a selection of IEE or PXI extensions. The Pylon Fixture Interface can be adjusted in height and offers ICT, FCT, High Power, Optical and Pneumatic I/Os. Further tools can be implemented on request, as can any project-specific instruments.

New Software Updates

GenFast, Digitaltest launches a new Software version without Visual Basic. It offers easy programming thanks to its new graphical tabular format allowing fast test program handling and simple navigation. The clearly structured GUI enables users with limited test software experience to use the system. With multiple views single statements as well as complete component groups can be debugged together.
