Agilent Test Coverage Software 

This article describes the Agilent Automates In-Circuit Test Coverage Reports (6N137). The principle is very simple, very practical. The circuit components can help you understand better grasp this principle. For example, in this circuit, you can go to find and buy these components: 6N137.

Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced a fast and easy-to-use test coverage prediction tool: N1194A Agilent Test Coverage Consultant (ATCC).

TheATCCsoftware performs two significant tasks. First, it measures the test coverage of a product after the tests have been developed. Second, it quickly predicts the test coverage of a product based only on theCADlayout files. These two capabilities allow engineers to estimate test coverage early in the product life cycle, when only theCADlayout file is available.ATCCsoftware also can work as a test strategy analysis tool by assisting the test manager in optimizing the manufacturing test coverage using a portfolio of available test platforms.

“The Agilent Test Coverage Consultant can save days in engineering by automating the currently manual test coverage analysis process, which may lead to faster time to market in today’s fast paced production,” said Adrian Cheong, Agilent’s technical marketing manager for in-circuit and functional test. “With the ability to analyze the coverage based on user selectable, Agilent in-circuit test features, as well as the use ofPCOLA-SOQmetrics, engineers can make a more complete test coverage report.”

The Agilent Test Coverage Consultant, when used during the prototyping phase, helps test engineers estimate how well their product can be tested during mass production. Engineers now will have the time they need to adjust the test strategy to ensure the best coverage is achieved and that the best quality products are produced.

The Agilent Test Coverage Consultant (ATCC) is a Windows PC standalone application installable on to a notebook PC enabling the user to conveniently create test coverage reports on the go.

Agilent Test Coverage Consultant, powered by Aster Technologies’ Testway engine, will objectively review the boardCADfiles or board test files to generate a comprehensive report using thePCOLA-SOQmetrics.

The software has the intelligence to analyze circuits with Agilent’s In-Circuit test technologies to determine the types of tests available to each component. The user selects the test technologies licensed on the target Agilent In-Circuit test system and the tool will produce the test coverage report using the licensed test features. Selecting or de-selecting the Agilent’s In-Circuit test technologies will alter the test coverage accordingly.

Agilent Test Coverage Consultant can be used as :

A predictive tool to analyze the in-circuit test coverage of a product early in the product life cycle when onlyCADlayout file is available.A test strategy analysis tool assisting the test manager to optimize the manufacturing test coverage using a portfolio of available test platforms. And the incremental test coverage value of introducing a new test platform into the existing portfolio.A test analysis tool to report the actual test coverage of the product after the tests have been generatedA tool to list tests that are generated for a board fromCADlayout files. The list of tests can be used to estimate the effort to complete the development of the Agilent In-Circuit test.

The Agilent Test Coverage Consultant is the only automatic tool available in the market providing an objective assessment of your product’s test coverage using thePCOLA-SOQmetrics.
