Header Base 600 Series Compacty

Circuit Check 's 600 Series Compact ATE Platform with built-in professional fixturing solves the uncertainty of repeatable results that are common with bench testing.  With the CCI 600 Series Compact ATE, your test procedures become automatic, with test steps and go/no-go limits programmed in common tabular form. Hand-probing is eliminated, replaced with accurate, repeatable tooling and reliable spring-loaded test probe fixturing.

Benefits

Compliance with Quality

The CCI 600 based test station plays an essential role in quality.  CCI configurable software architectures embed quality, environmental, and safety controls in the production processes to help manage compliance.

Accuracy and Performance

Once configured to meet your user requirements specification, CCI includes all the tools needed to support the test system lifecycle.

Configurability

Adding a new range of design possibilities for test solutions, the CCI 600 architecture supports shared instrumentation with asynchronous test execution that leverages traditional fixturing or modular quick-change drop-in adapters.

 

Testing Applications

• Programming station
• Board-level ATE
• Unit-level ATE
• Depot repair station
• Replace manual test or programming procedures with accurate and repeatable system

One of the keys to getting the maximum value from automated test equipment is using the same test equipement and fixture mechanics to test multiple products. Circuit Check's 600 Series Compact ATE achieves this by using interchangeable fixture drop-in's.  These allow the same test system to be quickly reconfigured with different tooling and probe patterns for different products. This maximizes equipment re-use, minimizing the cost for each new test.

Modular Software:

Circuit Check’s modular software, called CCI Test, allows rapid program development and enables a single program to test multiple product part numbers concurrently and asynchronously while efficiently sharing test instrument resources.  Test steps, values, and limits are programmed in tabular format. The CCI 600 Series Compact ATE can be deliverd with National Instruments TestStand.

Total System Support:

Circuit Check supports all aspects of the system development including electrical and mechanical design, software development, fabrication, system integration, deployment and support. With a modular functional test system from Circuit Check based on commercial off the shelf instrumentation, you can accelerate the deployment of your production test strategy.

One of the keys to getting the maximum value from automated test equipment is using the same test equipement and fixture mechanics to test multiple products.  The CCI 600 test station can support a traditional fixed product fixtures or interchangeable fixture drop-in's (watch video).  Interchangable drop-in's allow the same test platform to be quickly reconfigured with different tooling and probe patterns for different products. This maximizes equipment re-use, minimizing the cost for each new test.

  

RF Shielding:  RF products are susceptible to external sources of interference (nearby/adjacent test systems, etc.) and often require shielding with a RF enclosure.  Absorber material on the interior walls absorbs reflections and prevents reverberating waves, permitting reproducible and reliable measurements.

Benefits

Due to increased productivity demands, personnel limitations and quality, integration of test and automation within a rotary based architecture not only increases product throughput, but can deliver many other benefits:

• More easily align quality with efficiency:
       o Automation integrated with test allows for faster more efficient design of throughput algorithms. Functional tests performed can be evaluated on the basis of detectable faults compromised by line beat-rate.
• Eliminate possibility of product accidentally forwarded to the next process step, while assuring that the correct failure data is available for Quality and Repair departments:
      o Automation with test allows failure analysis to be logged automatically, while also enabling product to be removed from process flow.
• Support concurrency by allowing multiple products to be processed at the same time:
      o Automation using a rotary based architecture can save valuable floor space.
• Address mission critical industries:
      o Automation linked to test can reduce operator intervention allowing for simplified validation to Quality standards.
• Replace some or all manual labor allowing production operating costs to be reduced.

 

Testing Applications

• Production environment that needs to support high-volume and high-mix products.
• Mission critical business sectors where operations must be quality assured and checked automatically.
• Increased production rate through concurrency in manufacturing.
• Reduce operations costs with automated handling between manufacturing process steps.

System Description

 

Modular Fixturing for Maximum Equipment Reuse:

A key to achieving the maximum value from automated test equipment is using the same test equipment and mechanics to test multiple products. Circuit Check's 6000 Series Rotary Handler achieves this by using interchangeable fixturing plates.  These unique quick-charge fixture drop-in’s maximize equipment re-use while minimizing the cost for each new test. Drop-in fixtures can perform a variety of functions, such as functional test, flash programming, vision inspection, through-connector test and/or marking.
