    The author describes an automatic method, and its software implementation, for testing and diagnosing printed circuit boards (PCBs) in a boundary scan (BS) environment. Test patterns for the BS chain and the board's interconnect are generated automatically based on a description of the components forming the board and their interconnections. The diagnosis of faults is also performed automatically ... View full abstract»

  • Software tools for ATE

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):5/1 - 5/2
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (72 KB)

    Next to system performance, the most important consideration in ATE development is system development time and cost. Traditional test development techniques have involved a number of steps that require considerable amounts of programming in a variety of languages for such things as: test plan generation, graphical user interfaces, diagnostics and test executives. Several techniques aimed at reduci... View full abstract»

    Nicolet Instruments' customer requirements range from measuring ultra-slow gravitational tides to very high speed electronic signals. Their business is not just in providing some of the tools to fulfil these requirements, but in presenting a complete solution which meets the customer's measurement needs. This often incorporates test routines and software analysis in an automated sequence. The auth... View full abstract»

    In order for designs to be successfully tested on a production tester certain design rules must be obeyed. The rules fall into two categories based upon whether edge sensitive scan is being used or level sensitive scan is being used. Design for test considerations discussed include: verification of scan vectors; determination of the number of test vectors generated; testing of RAM and ROM blocks; ... View full abstract»

    QFD is a quality-oriented process that can play an important role in the market-driven, total quality control environment. It can be deployed in almost all areas of product development, test and manufacturing processes. QFD is one way to ensure the reliability of the software products. The author is concerned with the role that software testing can play in increasing the reliability of software. H... View full abstract»

    The development of functional test programs for electronic circuit designs is a complex and time consuming task for the human expert. The system discussed is a prototype expert system known as KRAFTS (Knowledge Representation Automaton for Functional Tests and Schedules), developed as part of a PhD research project. The project endeavours to capture, in an expert systems environment, the methodolo... View full abstract»

  • Software automation and constraints management to contain complexity within flexible manufacturing

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):7/1 - 7/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (220 KB)

    The provision of cost effective flexible test solutions depend very heavily on the application of appropriate DFT (design for test) strategies. The authors believe that this should be an integral part of an all pervasive constraints managed flexible system that will enable either very short iteration loops (Shallow ES) or true concurrency via an object oriented approach. The authors describe their... View full abstract»
