JTAG/Boundary Scan integration in Flying Probe test (FPT) systems

As an outstanding integration partner, GÖPEL electronic is highly experienced in this area and has been working very closely and successfully with well-known vendors of Flying Probers for many years.

The Flying Probe test’s disadvantage, its execution speed, can be reduced to the lowest level by combining FPT with Boundary Scan.

A particular advantage of this combination is the ability to apply the probes as virtual Boundary Scan cells, allowing traces to be tested which were previously untestable with JTAG/Boundary Scan.

Advantages:

  • Fast total system
  • Very high fault coverage, also for highly complex PCBs
  • High flexibility because no UUT specific adapter is required
  • Easy test program generation using automatic software

JTAG/Boundary Scan integration in Digitaltest MTS500 series

Digitaltest

The JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware platform SCANFLEX supports Digitaltest MTS500 board tester of the type Flying Probe.

With this Boundary Scan implementation, a multitude of additional test options is available for the users on board and system level over the complete product life cycle without invasive access of the nail bed. As well as the increased test coverage, further advantages are a significant cost reduction and a reduced time-to-market.

One highlight of this integration is the software-related activation of the Digitaltest Flying Probe test channels.
Due to this Boundary Scan tests can be carried out on the adapter of the Digitaltest machine with interaction of Boundary Scan IC and Flying Probe.

The tester platform of Digitaltest’s MTSxx series supports the true reusability of all JTAG/Boundary Scan test and programming procedures that were generated by GOEPEL electronic’s CASCON GALAXY software.

Integration with Polar Instruments flying probe PCB test and repair system GRS500

Polar Instruments

The JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware platform SCANBOOSTER/USB supports the Polar Instruments flying probe PCB test and repair system GRS500.

The integrated Boundary Scan hardware is based on SCANBOOSTER/USB. The SCANBOOSTER/USB is equipped with one independent TAP and supports a programmable TCK frequency up to 16MHz. The TAP is programmable with regard to output voltage, input voltage, output impedance and input impedance. By utilizing GOEPEL electronic’s TIC (TAP Interface Card) modules serving as interface between controller and UUT, some of the SCANBOOSTER advantages apply.

Jointly developed with GOEPEL, the new Boundary Scan Test Option provides an important addition to the Polar GRS500 Flying Probe Test- and Repair System.

JTAG/Boundary Scan Integration in Seica Pilot/Aerial

Seica Test Solutions

The SCANFLEX JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware supports Seica series Pilot/Aerial of Flying Probers.

The integrated Boundary Scan hardware consists of a PCI controller, a Fixture Transceiver, and a TAP Interface Card (TIC). The architecture of the controller supports data rates up to 80 MHz at up to four independent TAP with additional resources. Besides the tremendously increased test coverage, a significant cost reduction and a reduced time-to-market are further advantages.

The tester platform of the Pilot/Aerial series supports the true reusability of all JTAG/Boundary Scan test and programming procedures that were generated by GOEPEL electronic’s CASCON GALAXY software.

JTAG/Boundary Scan integration in SPEA 4040 series

Spea

The JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware platform SCANFLEX supports SPEA 4040 Highline/Multimode tester of the type Flying Probe.

With this Boundary Scan implementation, a multitude of additional test options is available for the users on board and system level over the complete product life cycle without invasive access of the nail bed. As well as the increased test coverage, further advantages are a significant cost reduction and a reduced time-to-market.

One highlight is the possibility of carrying out interactive tests between Boundary Scan IC and Flying Probes. The software SYSTEM CASCON™ controls the positioning of the probes and uses the functions for driving and measuring the signal levels.

The tester platform of SPEA’s 4040 series supports the true reusability of all JTAG/Boundary Scan test and programming procedures that were generated by GOEPEL electronic’s CASCON GALAXY software.
