Functional Modules - Analogue AB30/64 – Analogue Buffer Module The CIMTEK ATE system offers an optional Analogue Buffer Module (AB30 or AB64) to provide precision measurement of AC volts, DC volts, current, frequency, event period and event counting. The ABM has 30 or 64 measurement pins to connect to the UUT. Multiple ABM’s can be installed, each taking one card slot, thereby increasing the number of pins available. AG4 – 4 Channel Arbitrary Waveform Generator The Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AG4-39) with 4 output channels comprises 4 separate, remote sensed, ground based, arbitrary generators intended for use with the 3900 Series of ATE systems. Each generator has 64K depth of memory which can be clocked out at a sampling rate of up to 32 MHz. A number of standard waveforms, Sine, Ramp and Square are available. Multiple AG4-39 modules can be placed in the rack, each module occupying a single module slot. AS8 – 8 Channel Analogue Sampling Module The AS8-39 is a sophisticated analogue data capture module that is capable of independently sampling the incoming data on each of the 8 channels at programmable rates up to 40MHz into the RAM behind each pin. Each channel has independent timebase and trigger facilities. The range on each channel is programmable in 1-2-5 steps from 50mV up to 200V. The module can be considered to be an 8 channel storage oscilloscope and allows analogue signals to be monitored, measured and compared or related to each other.

ED24 – 24 Channel Event Detector Module Detecting random events, analysing complex waveforms over long time periods and accurately picking out the timing from asynchronous digital signals can be taxing on test resources. The ED24 has the capability to simplify them considerably. The Event Detector Module compares the voltage on its 24 input channels against a programmable reference. When the threshold is crossed, the module records the time at which this has happened and the direction of the transition. Being free-running, it is very simple to use. Results are returned as real time values for added convenience. Capable of storing over 250,000 events, the module can monitor performance with long intervals between uploads of data to the controller. VI4 – 4 Channel Voltage/Current Module The VI4 comprises four identical, fully floating voltage sources with separately specifiable positive and negative current limits. Each source is bipolar in voltage setting and both of its output nodes, the output and the reference (floating ground), are available at the Test Interface Connector. Voltage and current monitoring is built in. VS16 – 16 Channel Voltage Source The 16 channel Voltage Stimulus Module (VS16-39) is a fast, precision, 16 channel constant DC voltage, remote sensed module. Each channel is independently controlled and voltages between ±16V DC can be delivered to the Unit Under Test. All channels are relay isolated and have an individual analogue measurement channel per output built in. This module is ideally suited to applications where a large number of sensors need to be simulated for example automotive or industrial process control.

Relay Modules RH24, RH48 and Rx96 – Relay Module The range of Relay Modules gives the user a general purpose, high current or mercury wetted switching matrix for routing signals, loads etc. Consisting of 64 relays and 96 operational pins, these modules provide the test engineer with a wide range of test signal switching options and with every relay contact individually programmable, users can quickly configure their application specific switching requirements. The RH96 offers high current switching and carrying capability whereas the RR96 provides general purpose

fast acting relays for normal switching requirements. For higher power switching, for example in automotive applications, the RH24 and RH48 modules are available with 24 and 48 high power relays fitted respectively.

MX64 – Multiplexer 8 to 64 way Bi-directional To complement the range of standard relay modules available a dedicated switching matrix is available. The MX64 can be configured as an 8x32 or an 8x64 way bidirectional matrix module. The module can be used to multiplex stimulus or measurement resources to a number of Unit Under Test Pins or to connect and disconnect loads to a UUT pin along with other resources simultaneously. The module consists of 512 relays that are independently controllable or can be controlled in groups of contacts up to 32.

Functional Modules - Digital AD32 – Advanced Digital Module CIMTEK’s AD32-39 is a sophisticated digital I/O module capable of producing/collecting data at rates of up to 50MHz from/into its RAM backed pins. This advanced functionality, combined with the AD32-39's inherent ability to link with simulators such as Lasar, makes the 3900 Series ATE a formidable digital tester reaching far beyond the capability previously associated with Low Cost ATE. BSG2 – Integrated Boundary Scan Module High-density multilayer PCBs with fine pitch surfacemount devices are very difficult to access for testing with the traditional ‘bed-of-nails’ fixture. Cost and reliability are also affected: fixturing costs rise with increasing fixture pin density, while reliability decreases resulting in more test down time. For this reason it is becoming increasingly important for manufacturers to build test capability into their products. One way of doing this is by using Boundary Scan (IEEE 1149.1) devices. Despite the four or five additional pins required by each boundary scan device, the product benefits from reduced fixturing costs, increased fixture reliability, and improved test access. With the Cimtek boundary scan solution, fixturing is simplified, and hence cheaper. Boundary scan test algorithms are called from within an ATE test program. In addition to testing the boundary scan devices, boundary scan pins can be set to drive or sense test

patterns, enabling the ATE to test non-boundary scan circuitry via Boundary Scan devices. DT80 – Digital Test Module The Digital Test Module (DT80-39) provides a high pin count digital test capability. Each DT80-39 provides 80 channels which can be individually designated under software control to be Drive, Sense or Tristate, including the ability to perform signature analysis on every pin. In common with other 3900 series modules the DT80-39 provides comprehensive cross triggering facilities allowing full integration with other test resources within the system.

Functional Modules - Communications SC7 – Serial Communication Module The Serial Communications Card 7 has seven flexible, fully independent communications channels that can be used in Automotive and other applications that require real-time serial communications between the ATE and the UUT. It is particularly applicable to Ford, GM, Visteon, Delphi, Bosch, Siemens, Motorola, TRW, and others. This module takes up a single slot in the test rack and has a full suite of integrated software. The communication modules currently available include: CAN Standard Extended Single wire – GM LAN – CAN J1850 10 KHz and 40 Khz Ford SCP GM Class 2 (Chrysler) UART KW2000 ISO9141-11 UBO ACP SCAD RS485 The modular approach means that new protocols or adaptations to existing protocols can be easily and quickly achieved.

General Application Modules CT96 – Customer Test Module Custom electronics can be easily interfaced with the tester through the Customer Test Module (CT96-39). The CT96-39 provides a large prototyping area, allowing access to the address bus, data bus, counter timer lines and analogue measurement bus, as well as the system power rails, thereby providing a powerful way of controlling custom electronics. Your custom design is further enhanced and integrated through the WKC programming language, allowing the user to create their own unique functions and to add them to their library. GP32 – General Purpose Module The CIMTEK ATE offers an optional General Purpose Module (GP32-39) which makes use of Omni-Pin technology and provides In-Circuit, analogue functional and digital functional test capabilities on each of its 32 pins, offering totally universal test performance. Any pin can be individually programmed to any function at any time. The Omni-Pin technology is ideal for both conventional and surface mount boards where full access via bed of nails may not be available. This module provides comprehensive, future-proof test facilities previously unknown in the low cost ATE field. HP2 – High Power 2 Channel Router The HP2-39 is a dual width 3900 module that is capable of supplying and switching high currents and voltages to the UUT. Each HP2-39 supports 2 power units and can route each unit to one or more of its 8 output channels. Both power units can be on and routed simultaneously. Up to 3 HP2-39s can be contained within the test rack which means that up to 24 high power rails can be presented to the UUT. UP8 – User Power Module The 3900 Series ATE provides for supply and control of power to the Unit Under Test (UUT).This is achieved using a simple modular structure. The ATE is configured by the user with a selection of up to 8 supplies, as appropriate for all test requirements. Control and distribution to the test fixture is achieved with a single test module, the User Power Module (UP8). All power supplies are floating, relay isolated and have remote sensing capability to simplify fixture design. In addition the UP8-39 offers In-Circuit (including continuity testing), voltage and current measurement capability to minimise requirements for other test modules and to simplify fixture wiring.

VIC – VI Controller The 3900 series ATE provides for direct voltage programming of high voltage or current power supplies, including 4-quadrant power VIs. This is achieved using a factory fit system module. The ATE can be configured with up to 8 user selected power units as appropriate for the UUT test requirements. Power unit outputs are routed to the UUT via the HP2 test rack module. Any analogue signal from the test bus can be routed to the VIC as a programming voltage for the attached power units. The VIC utilises a remote box at the power unit to minimise the voltage programming wiring and includes an identifier to allow the limits of the power unit to be known.

Loads Cards Load Modules The range of Simulated Load Modules for the Exordia Series ATE system gives the user a configurable method of connecting multiple loads to a Unit Under Test (UUT). Load configurations for various products can also be accommodated in the dedicated load rack located at the base of the Exordia system. The load rack modules are available at the mass interconnect via a 104 Way 13A connector and a 165 Way 3A connector. DL32 – Discrete Load Modules Consists of 32 channels of simulated switch loads. Each channel has a 47W and a 51kW resistor in parallel, the 47W being connected to the output pin via a relay. The 47W resistor is used to simulate a ‘dirty’ closed switch and the 51kW resistor is used to simulate a ‘leaky’ open switch. The common point of each resistor pair can be switched to Vbatt or Ground CL32 – Customer Load Modules 32 channels of user supplied resistive load capability. The module has space for the user to insert up to 32 25W, 10W or ¼W resistive loads.
