The Peak Group has added a new boundary-scan fixture interface to its portfolio of automatic test systems based on its partnerships with National Instruments (NI), GOEPEL electronic and Virginia Panel Corporation (VPC).
The new PXI 1149/VPC(x) Pull-Thru receiver ensures an outstanding signal quality in the interface between GOEPEL electronic’s PXI/PXIe SCANFLEX(R) Boundary Scan controllers and test fixtures, and completely eliminates the complication of any kind of manual wiring in the configuration of the interface.
The new Pull-Thru adapters are designed to improve the integration quality and seamless combination of structural test technologies with functional test in volume manufacturing. As well as the actual JTAG signals, the new Pull-Thru adapter offers additional connections for GOEPEL electronic’s dynamic I/O signals for enhanced handling of all Embedded System Access (ESA) technologies. As a result, it provides the ability to test and program highly complex boards, including on-chip flash programming, with significantly reduced test points, in some cases without the use of traditional test points or probes at all.
The new unit is fully compatible with the scalable Mass InterConnect system from VPC using Pull-Thru Receiver series G20, G20x, G40 and G14x. Using this option, users can now easily combine JTAG/Boundary Scan with the PXI Interface Test Adapter (ITA) solutions from VPC to create a high performance reliable fixture interface.
