    The design of electronic products has been revolutionized, in recent years, by the introduction of various "state-of-the-art" concepts and technology changes. This continually accelerating trend of technical innovation has, perhaps, had a tendency to cloud the significance and relative importance of some of the fundamental concepts involved in the expression "producibility of design." "Producibili... View full abstract»

    This paper surveys the development of in-circuit testing over the past decade and examines the reasons as to why this production floor technique for test and fault diagnosing of printed wiring assemblies has taken hold. Both controller based and minicomputer based in-circuit test systems are discussed, and reasons are advanced as to why minicomputer based in-circuit systems are becoming popular. S...

    The use of computers by industry in operations and products is undergoing a fundamental change. The change has been made possible by technological advances in integrated circuits and software. Cost and performance trends of small (mini) and large (maxi) computers are such that future systems will be distributed and hierarchical. Both computer power and data bases (mass storage) will be distributed... View full abstract»

  • Automatic Test Equipment in the Production Process

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):48 - 52

    Automatic test equipment for 100 percent incoming inspection of electronic devices is inexpensive enough and effective enough today that sample testing no longer makes sense for most quality-control organizations. Although component manufacturers normally perform 100 percent inspection--at least in the early stages of manufacture--there are a great many ways in which errors can be passed along to ...

    This paper discusses the applications and architectural features of a sequential pattern generator designed for a general-purpose high-speed large-scale integration (LSI) test system. This system provides enhanced capabilities for testing communications-microprocessor-oriented LSI devices which require long test patterns and flexible input-output (I-O) control of individual pins. Salient features ... View full abstract»

    Starting with huge one of a kind expensive systems designed for the military, there exists today a large variety of commercial equipment which does the same basic job for a lot less money. System sophistication varies from go/no-go testors to diagnostic systems which lead the operator to the defective component. View full abstract»

    Currently, many manufacturing functions are automated through the use of computers and associated equipment. The support of ,administrative functions such as material and labor control to regulate costs and measure results is aided by the use of medium to large computers at the plant site or through communications to a central computer site. The control of processes, such as testing and assembly, ... View full abstract»
