Very complex or computationally intensive test processes can be sped up by using a second PC. The test programs are automatically transferred from the coordinator PC to the other computers and thus kept up-to-date. The coordinator and test program are based on a modular system that can be flexibly adapted to individual requirements.
Finding and resolving faults
If faults are discovered during the panel test, it is important that they can be assigned to the correct individual PCBs. Here, the failure import module of the QMAN repair software uses intelligent procedures to clearly assign failures to the respective board. This ensures that faults detected in the panel test can be quickly found on the individual circuit and can therefore be repaired at low cost.
It becomes clear: The test professionals have seen the challenges in the market and developed consistent solutions for them. It was important to them that they could be used with just the push of a button for standard test tasks. At the same time, however, a solution was created that can be flexibly adapted to individual needs. Whether for simple or complex test applications, the system supports the user perfectly throughout the entire process from panel creation, through test debugging, to tests and final documentation.
