2020 is an automatic test system integrated with a board loading/unloading
mechanism using cassettes. The high flexibility of the 2020 guarantees
high productivity and lower test costs.
The 2020 uses cassettes to load a repetitive series of boards instead
of single boards one at a time. This allows the person that is repairing
the boards to also be the same person that is loading and unloading
the boards. This feature will noticably reduce the test costs. In
order to increase the system autonomy, it is possible to easily
configure the input and output cassettes to match each product to
The 2020 multi-cassettes stations allow high autonomy and the substitution
of the input and output cassettes as required without dependence
on the other cassettes.
The 2020 is designed with hardware and software modules for the
complete, in-circuit, parametric, and functional test of a single
board or panels of boards.
The 2020 can be equipped with "Family Box" modules containing
specific instruments for functional tests, again tested as a single
board or panel of boards in a multi-site parallel configuration.
"Pass/fail" selection is performed by applying different
strategies that can be selected in accordance with the relevant
needs. The output racks can be assigned to "Pass" or "Fail"
boards. The position of the failed boards in the "Fail"
rack can be memorized. The GAX multiprocessor parallel architecture
enables the 2020 to be equipped with the configuration required
by current product needs and to be expanded or modified in accordance
with the future test requirements.
Modules are provided for in-circuit, parametric and functional testing
with in-circuit analog, in-circuit digital and power-on functional
testing. Based on the ATOS2 operating system, the 2020 automatically
generates in-circuit and parametric test programs. This is possible
because ATOS2 uses an Expert System that allows the software to
adapt the program generation to the acquired experience of the software.
Thanks to this technology, the generated test programs require a
less time for debugging.
