Circuit Check,ASSET InterTech collaborate on boundary-scan test solutions
Circuit Check and ASSET InterTech collaborate on boundary-scan test solutions

Companies combine the power of ASSET's boundary-scan test tools with Circuit Check's (CCI) flexible, configurable Functional Test Stations for best-in-class test coverage at lowest cost.

News Highlights
• Combined products allow the capability to support printed circuit board assembly or product-level test and programming.
• CCI's unique quick-change fixture drop-in technologies allow for station modularity and scalability.
• Joint tool flow simplifies all aspects of test from design verification to production thru repair, delivering more detailed diagnostics during a high-level test.

Minneapolis, Minnesota -- Circuit Check Inc., a global leader in test, automation and interfacing solutions for electronics and electro-mechanical device manufacturers, announced a collaboration with ASSET InterTech to more closely integrate ASSET's ScanWorks boundary-scan test tools with CCI's flexible, configurable functional test systems, the CCI 1000 Series Configurable ATE and CCI 6000 Series Rotary Handler.

"Greater circuit board densities, finer pitches, and higher I/O and memory speeds are driving the importance of functionally exercising products at functional level PCBA test and end-product subassembly. Combining net and pin-level diagnostics along with boundary-scan test is an ideal solution to the complexities of today's designs", says Greg Michalko, CEO of Circuit Check.

A key to achieving the maximum value from automated test equipment is using the same test equipment and fixture mechanics to test multiple products. Circuit Check's 1000 Series ATE achieves this by using interchangeable fixturing, as well as interchangeable fixture drop-in's. These components enable the same test system to be quickly reconfigured with new tooling for different products, maximizing equipment re-use while minimizing the cost for each new test. The CCI 1000 supports probes on the topside, bottom-side, bi-level or dual stage, as well as through-connector test and line-automation.

"CCI's functional test solutions lead its industry and are broadly adopted within numerous market segments, particularly medical, military and aerospace applications", said Alan Sguigna, vice president of sales for ASSET. "As the need to thoroughly and confidently test and diagnose mission-critical systems continues to grow, boundary-scan capability integrated within functional test ensures test completeness".

The CCI 6000 Rotary Handler can perform a variety of functions, such as functional test, flash programming, vision inspection, through-connector test and/or marking. "A drop-in fixture option allows for quick change from one product to the next, usually within minutes", says Greg. "Today's complex mission-critical products often require probe access and though-connector test methods. Adding a seamlessly integrated end-user experience with boundary scan into our test solutions, helps our customers ensure quality in production for their technologies."
