Concord, CA. May 6th, 2018, Alliance Support Partners (ASP) Makes Teradyne Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) Presentation
Alliance Support Partners (ASP), partnered with NAVSEA, gave a presentation on Functional Test with FPGA and Microcontroller at TIM.
An increasing number of assemblies tested on the S9100 include complicated functions implemented using FPGA(s) and/or Microcontroller(s). Tests must make use of the firmware built into those devices to perform the proper board function tests. Most firmware was developed in the lab using device specific programming pods. TPS developer had to weight the pros and cons of using the programming pod vs. importing tests to the ATE. When no suitable firmware exists, an application specific firmware has to be implemented. We will discuss test techniques for FPGA and Microcontroller based assemblies using examples from recently deployed test applications.
