PRODUCT DETAILS

TS-900 PXI Semiconductor Test System

The TS-900 PXI Semiconductor Test System is an integrated test platform that offers comparable system features and capabilities found in proprietary ATE systems. Available as a bench top, with an integrated cart, or with an integrated manipulator, the TS-900 takes full advantage of the PXI architecture to achieve a cost-effective and full-featured test solution for device, SoC and SiP test applications. The test system incorporates a custom-designed, performance test interface that supports the use of PCB DUT (Device Under Test) boards - a proven and high-performance method for interfacing to the device under test. Additionally, the receiver interface’s pin blocks are field configurable, allowing users to upgrade the receiver when they modify or upgrade the system for new applications. The configuration of the receiver can support up to 512 dynamic digital channels, as well as a range of analog, power supply and RF resources.

The basic system includes 64, digital I/O channels; 64 static digital I/O channels; a programmable user power supply; a system self-test and fixture; DIOEasy software for digital waveform editing / display, ICEasy - device test development tools, and Marvin Test Solutions' ATEasy software which provides an integrated and complete test executive and test development environment, allowing users to quickly develop and easily maintain test applications. With an additional 14 PXI slots available for adding more digital or analog test resources as needed, the TS-900 is the ideal test solution for semiconductor OEMs, fabless semiconductor vendors, incoming inspection / counterfeit detection labs and packaging / test vendors needing a low cost, configurable test system.

For production test applications requiring integration with an automated handler, the TS-900 is available with the Reid - Ashman OM1069 manipulator which provides precise positioning of the test head and the flexibility to interface to automated probers and device handlers. The manipulator’s spring loaded design allows for easy alignment and docking to handlers - eliminating the need for a complex receiver interface. The TS-900M features a handler compatible slide receiver, which offers the flexibility to interface to virtually any device handler. In addition, fixture compatibility is maintained with the TS-900’s bench top receiver configuration, allowing users to interchange load boards between the screw down and slide receiver configurations.
 

Features

The TS-900 can be configured with up to 512 dynamic digital channels. The base TS-900 platform uses the GX5295 - a 3U PXI, 32 channel, 100 MHz digital I/O card with per channel PMUs and the TS-960 platform uses the advanced GX5296 - a 3U PXI, 32 channel 125 MHz digital I/O card featuring timing and PMU per pin capability with 1 ns edge placement resolution. For high voltage digital I/O test applications, a TS-906 platform is available which is based on a 20-slot, 6U PXI chassis and employs the GX5960 digital subsystem which supports a drive / sense voltage range of -15V to +25V , a per pin PMU, and supports vector rates up to 50 MHz.A combination of high and low voltage digital I/O modules can be configured in the TS-906, offering the user flexibility for addressing both high and low voltage digital device test needs.

A wide range of digital and analog instrument test options can easily be incorporated into the TS-900, offering users a compact test system that can support both functional and DC parametric test capabilities. And with the incorporation of an integral, modular test interface, the TS-900 offers users an application ready test system which can be upgraded or reconfigured in the field if needed. The system is also supplied with various software development and digital vector conversion tools, including support for ASCII, WGL, STIL, and VCD vector formats.

TS-960 Core System Configuration

The TS-960 core system utilizes the same core components as the TS-900 but employs the GX5296 digital subsystem which features timing per pin, data formatting, and an advanced sequencer. Key features include:

  • 64 125 MHz digital channels with per pin PMU & per pin timing (expandable to 512)
  • 64 static digital channels (expandable to 128), which can be used for fixture ID, UUT static control or DUT board relay control

  • ATEasy test executive and programming environment
  • DIOEasy digital waveform editing and display tool
  • ICEasy test software development tools

TS-906 Core System Configuration

The TS-906 core system utilizes many of the same core components as the TS-900 but is based on a 6U PXI chassis and the GX5960 digital subsystem which features high voltage pin electronics (-15V to +25V range) as well as timing per pin, data formatting, and an advanced sequencer. Key features include:

  • 80, 50 MHz digital channels with per pin PMU & per pin timing (expandable to 496 HV pin or a combination of high and low voltage pins)
  • 64 static digital channels (expandable to 128), which can be used for fixture ID, UUT static control or DUT board relay control

  • ICEasy test software development tools
  • Optional low voltage digital I/O pins using the GX5295 or GX5296 modules
  • Optional dual 150W programmable user supplies (0 to 60 volts)

Receiver Interface

The TS-900 platform employs a modular, pogo-pin style receiver interface which consists of various pin blocks and is field re-configurable. Interfacing to the device under test (DUT) is done via a device specific PCB which mates to the pogo pin interface and is held in position with an integral stiffener / hold-down assembly. The hold down assembly employs a screw down mechanism for bench top configurations or a slide receiver mechanism for interfacing to handlers. Both mechanisms employ the same stiffener assembly, allowing users to interchange PCB load boards between the two types of mechanisms.

For digital interfacing, the receiver employs dual, 68-pin block assemblies which connect directly to the TS-900’s PXI digital instrument resources, providing a high performance, controlled impedance interface. For user power connections, a power block is available which supports up to (4) user power suppliers and for general purpose analog and switching applications, a 78 pin block assembly with mating D-sub connector is available. RF and coaxial connections can be accommodated via an 8 connector, SMA block or blind-mate RF connector blocks. All receiver block positions are interchangeable, offering a high degree of flexibility.
