Astronics Test Systems Inc. Key Developments

Astronics Test Systems Inc. Announces New Semiconductor System-Level Test (SLT) Platform

Astronics Corporation announced that Astronics Test Systems, introduced its new breakthrough System-Level Test (SLT) platform that is expected to revolutionize the testing of high volume integrated semiconductor devices.  The new ATS 5034 System-Level Test (SLT) Platform improves production efficiency and greatly reduces the cost of test by processing up to 396 devices simultaneously. This new platform is ideal for testing the latest semiconductor devices for mobile, automotive, wearable and industrial applications.  The ATS 5034 SLT Platform can be tailored to meet precise production test requirements.  Customers will benefit from the dramatically reduced footprint of the ATS 5034 SLT Platform and the ability to test up to 5,000 units per hour (UPH). The new ATS 5034 SLT Platform tests integrated semiconductors in “mission mode” to verify performance of the semiconductor at the operating level.  Traditionally a difficult, expensive test insertion, the new ATS 5034 makes it simple for manufacturers to now transition to 100% SLT affordably.  An engineer can design a test sequence for a single site, and the ATS 5034 SLT Platform easily scales that sequence to hundreds of sites. Customizable and adaptable, this versatile modular platform satisfies a variety of manufacturing test functions including system characterization, validation, and qualification, system-level test and RMA/failure debug.  Key features include: Testing of integrated semiconductor devices, such as microprocessors, microcontrollers, and embedded systems; Test up to 396 devices simultaneously, at a rate of up to 5,000 UPH; Support for popular package types: system on chip (SoC), module, and heterogeneous system in package (SiP); Turnkey automation with JEDEC trays input and outputs, including lot cascading; Astronics’ ActivATE™ software, an easy-to-use test executive; Extremely accurate thermal stress testing capability (+/- 1° C); and Small factory footprint. Astronics can further customize this platform for various low, medium or high volume system-level test scenarios.  This platform also includes support from the Astronics program management organization, which oversees installation and maintenance at any global location.  Units are in production and shipping in the first quarter of 2017.

NI and Astronics Introduce New Set of PXI Instruments for the Aerospace and Defense Industries

NI and Astronics Test Systems Inc. announced the Astronics PXIe-6943 Digital Test Instrument, Astronics PXIe-3352 Rubidium Clock Source and Astronics PXIe-1209 Pulse Pattern Generator. The three new test instruments accompany the previously released Astronics PXIe-2461 Frequency Time Interval Counter and are the latest products from NI and Astronics collaboration to provide PXI-based instruments with test program set-(TPS-) compatible software for existing VXI instruments. The product of the collaboration is the -2 to 7 V, 200 MB/s Astronics PXIe-6943 Digital Test Instrument. The Astronics PXIe-6943 is modeled after the highly successful VXI-based Astronics T940 Digital Resource Modules, which enable pattern-based digital test in many commercial and government programs. These instruments are also TPS-compatible with legacy instruments from Astronics as well as other instrument vendors. Also newly introduced, the Astronics PXIe-3352 Rubidium Clock Source combines a rubidium oscillator with a GPS receiver into a single, high-precision instrument. The new Astronics PXIe-1209 Pulse Pattern Generator is a high-performance, 2-channel, 100 MHz pulse generator that delivers dual independent pulse generation with extremely high resolution. These products will be sold through the NI sales channel, which provides direct sales operations in more than 60 countries with more than 1,400 field and support engineers worldwide.

Astronics Test Systems Introduces a New Frequency Time Interval Counter

Astronics Test Systems announced the availability of a new Frequency Time Interval Counter (FTIC) in collaboration with National Instruments Corporation. The new Astronics PXIe-2461 is a high-performance, two channel, universal 235 MHz frequency interval counter. It is the first product developed from Astronics’ collaboration with NI, announced in November 2015, to revitalize legacy aerospace and defense test systems. The new FTIC is well-suited for use in military or commercial applications. Designed for full test program sets (TPS) compatibility, the instrument can replace existing VXI-based FTICs and deliver the same capability in a newer PXI-based subsystem. With outstanding resolution of up to nine digits per second, the resolution can be 1 ns in single-shot mode and 100 ps in average mode. The unit operates in two voltage modes: ±5.1 V or ±42 V. The programmable measurement timeout ensures that system performance is optimized where input signals are missing. Units are in production and available through the NI sales channel starting at $4,499.
