Embedded Functional Test

Integration of functional tests such as access to I²C and SPI components

Functional test of modern electronics using the native component intelligence - realized by Embedded Functional Test. The creation and application of test scenarios takes place entirely in a system, which is formed by a common control hardware and a common control software.

Embedded Functional Test allows the integration of functional tests such as access to I²C and SPI components, measurement and evaluation of analog processor inputs, dynamic memory tests and test of high-speed interfaces (e.g. USB 3.0.). Typically these tests are used as an extension to existing structural tests (Boundary Scan, ICT or Flying Probe).

The Embedded Functional Test also detects errors in the dynamic range, which is not possible with purely statistic tests in the normal case. In contrast to the classical function test, no board-specific firmware is required.

A total of four combinable technologies form the pillars of the Embedded Functional Test
