Irvine, CA, United States, 2009/08/18 - Chroma ATE announced the 36010 - a 100MHz programmable pin electronic module designed for characterizing, validating and testing digital and mixed signal ICs or electronics.
Each module consists of a Sequence Pattern Generator and Logic Pin Electronics Card containing 8 channels. The 36010 module is expandable to provide up to 64 channels of hardware resource for various purposes. Based on a per-pin architecture, each channel is equipped with 32M vector memory, 32 sets of clocks, 32 sets of waveforms and one PMU channel. It provides fast and accurate testing, with the same performance and features as other full size ATE equipment.
Sequence Pattern Generator
The Sequence Pattern Generator of the 36010 module provides more than 17 sequence commands to control the flow of pattern execution. It is equipped with 32M of sequence command memory, which allows each vector to have its own sequence command to flexibly control the flow of pattern execution. Each Sequence Pattern Generator can support up to 8 Logic Pin Electronics Cards, allowing it to support up to 64 I/O channels and perform testing on 8 DUTs simultaneously.
Logic Pin Electronic Card
In each Logic Pin Electronics Card, it adopts Chroma® PINF ICs on it to achieve high timing accuracy and flexible waveform output functions. The per-pin timing generator provides 32 sets of clocks containing 6 programmable edges. For the per-pin waveform generator, it provides each digital I/O channel 32 sets of programmable waveforms with a change-on-the-fly feature. In the analog function, the Logic Pin Electronics card has a tri-level driver and comparator with 610uV of programmable resolution. It is also equipped with active load, per-pin PMU and high voltage driver functions. Additionally, the 36010 supports a scan pattern function for scan tests.
Pricing & Availability
The 36010 is immediately available worldwide with a list price of $3600 USD. To purchase, contact Chroma directly at 1-800-478-2026, or visit their website.
