System Description

  Modular Hardware Architecture:

A key to test strategy design is knowing and matching a board's test requirements to the most effective means to meet those requirements. The CCI 5000 series allows the PCBA manufacture to more easily manage their tester resource portfolio though a unified in-line automation controller matched to customer defined test needs for balanced ICT, Flash and Functional test. Each CCI 5000 Series In-line Handler is assembled to a customer's application needs, comprising of device-under-test (DUT) measurement instrumentation interconnects, signal types and counts, power sources, and management software. Common configurations include:

Single Bay - One slide-in fixture with optional fail-discharge shoot
Double Bay - Two slide-in fixtures to support programming and test
Triple Bay - Three slide-in fixtures to maximize line beat-rate

Modular Fixturing for Maximum Equipment Reuse:

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 5000 Series In-line Handler achieves this by using interchangeable fixturing.  Interchangeable components enable the same test system to be quickly reconfigured with new tooling for different products. This maximizes equipment re-use while minimizing the cost for each new test. The CCI 5000 series handler supports probes on the topside, bottom-side and multi-stage, while also being adaptable to through connector test


 Scalable Instrumentation for Flexible Measurements and Programming:

The CCI 5000 Series is configured to customer specific test needs in order to maximize performance at a lower investment, supporting many suppliers of ICT, Functional, and Flash programming hardware and software.

  Integrated Control of Fixture Actuation and Conveyor Speed for Optimized Beat-rate:

Control Panel 200

The CCI 5000 Series In-line Handler includes a dedicated industry-standard PC executing a sequenced based conveyor control software tool.  Using a simple text editor, each bay’s conveyor speed and fixture actuation can be controlled.  The user can control the fixturing press for both rapid and smooth press actuation, while also having control of bay specific conveyor speed to achieve an optimum beat-rate.
