What You Will Learn
ATE Selection and Management
Presented from a non-biased perspective, this course will teach you the decision process for test strategy selection. It provides a generic approach and alert you to things you should consider for ATE investment.
ATE Selection, Design and Programming
This course covers every aspect of a test engineer's responsibility. Participants will learn how to select an automatic test equipment (ATE) from the number of choices and generically different types available. You will learn how to build an ATE from instrumentation and other building blocks. You will learn the bussing requirements of the IEEE 488, VXIbus, and PC-based instruments. You will also learn the software issues. The course will teach you how to approach a functional test programming activity for digital circuits. (In the longer, three-day course, analog test programming is also covered.) Finally, you will learn test management issues, such as test program development estimation, acquisition and quality assurance.
Environmental and Reliabilty Testing
This course covers the environmental and reliability tests performed during design and in manufacturing. You will learn about reliability prediction techniques and factors. You will learn what you can expect from reliability growth testing environmental stress screening (ESS). You will know how environmental stress screening (ESS) is used to flush out flaws introduced during processing, fabrication and assembly. When highly accelerated for longer duration, this is called Reliability Test. You will learn how Reliability Test can flush out design flaws resulting from incompatible interfaces, from erroneous functional performance in different environments and from weak components. By the completion of this course you will be able to formulate environmental and reliability test strategies for your own products.
How to Design for Testability (DFT) for Today's Boards and Systems
Detailed review of the various guidelines covered in the SMTA/TMAG Testability Guidelines. Part 1 of the Webtorial will introduce attendees to the issues surrounding testing of electronic circuit boards and systems. It introduces testing concept and the mix of testers normally used. This includes the JTAG/IEEE-1149.1 boundary scan as well as built-in self test (BIST). With a combination of these technologies, the idea of non-intrusive board (and system) test is explored. The Webtorial takes the view that DFT is the best way to improve test performance and cost effectiveness. Towards that end Part 2 provides specific DFT guidelines. It concludes with exploring new standards and developments in DFT that will improve testing of boards and systems in the future.
