TestWay

TestWay’s electrical DfT analyzer enables designers to validate designs at the schematic capture stage, to ensure that adequate measures have been included to comply with the manufacturers test requirements. The ability to verify that PCB designs have been developed with adequate Design-for-Test in mind, is key in determining the most effective test strategies and accurately calculating fault coverage, which is crucial in improving competitive advantage, lowering cost and ensuring product quality.

TestWay Express

TestWay Express allows users to combine, within a heterogeneous production line, various types of inspection or test equipments, which allows test coverage qualification to be carried out for each individual test stage, but also consolidates the coverage for the complete production line. As a result, it is possible to make a comparison between the theoretical and real test coverage. A variety of test scenarios and test line combinations are created by simply drag and dropping items from the test equipment list to replicate the tester line. By simulating various combinations, customers can leverage the benefits of each solution in reducing the number of false calls, diagnostic inaccuracies and eliminating overlapping tests, resulting in a reduction of the overall test time.

QuadView

QuadView is a powerful set of scalable board viewing modules that can be used either as a standalone viewer or fully integrated within customer’s applications. QuadView can be used in the design environment to assist in DfT and test coverage analysis. Whereas, within the manufacturing environment it becomes an integral part of the repair cycle, assisting in locating faults and reducing repair time significantly.
