GOEPEL electronic presents the latest version 4.9.0 of the SYSTEM CASCON system software for automatic test program generation with numerous supporting functions.

Configurable Production Inspector with new features

The integrated Production Inspector is configurable and has new features. Its individual elements are freely selectable in their arrangement and visibility.

A tabular display of the applications of a batch run and its test results provides an additional overview of the current test status of the batch. At the start, the contained applications are entered line by line in the first column of a table, the second column dynamically receives the respective test results. When testing several units under test (UUT) in parallel, there is one column per UUT. A coloured syntax highlighting enables relevant passages in the text of the test result to be found more quickly.

IEEE standard 1149.1-2013 complements the system software

The support for IEEE standard 1149.1-2013 is additionally part of the latest version. The IEEE standard allows the segmentation of the boundary register. This allows the scan chain to be shortened considerably for special tests of partial external circuits. This leads to faster test execution. Furthermore, power domains are supported, which are initially not active at the beginning of the test, but are only activated as needed during the course of the test.

ViPX technology at IC level and with integrated ViPX Netlist

The Visual Project Explorer (ViPX) also comes with innovations. With ViPX, the user gets a visualisation tool to easily display complex board and test information.

A new feature is ViPX at IC level, which makes the internal scan structures of an IC visible. If the IC contains boundary segments according to standard 1149.1-2013, the corresponding structure is visualised. In this way, power domains and the activation possibilities of the segments can be easily recognised.

ViPX-Netlist graphically displays sections of the netlist as a circuit diagram. At this point, the user has the possibility to enter comments on components and nets. Problems and solutions to problems are named to give hints for future use.

Faster execution of JAM/STAPL files on SFX II controllers

Finally, the accelerated execution of JAM/STAPL files on SFX II controllers is an important new feature of CASCON 4.9.0. The acceleration is achieved by an embedded JAM/STAPL player in the SFX II controllers, which eliminates the time-consuming communication between controller and PC.
