Data Creation Software for Populated Board Testing

The UA1780 enables high-quality test programs in a short period of time by using net information that has been reverse-generated from Gerber data and component information libraries, and delivers maximum performance when used in conjunction with Hioki’s FA1240-50 Flying Probe Tester.

Key Features
• No need for camera-based teaching
• No need to visually trace patterns under components
• Easy generation of high-quality test data without boards
• Support for the new FA1240 data format

Making the most of your flying probe tester

It’s half true, and half untrue, to say that the ability to easily create data is distinct from the ability to easily test boards.
Being able to create data easily may have meant being able to test boards easily during the discrete era, but in creating the test data required by the FA1240, it is critical that creating accurate test data be a simple and easy-to-perform process.
By minimizing the difference between data that’s good enough to operate the tester and data that’s good enough to ship products, it is possible to minimize production line downtime (to allow for debugging and other modifications) and to ship products with peace of mind.

[Program, Test, Visualize] Populated Board Electrical Testing System

Hioki can prepare populated board testing system benchmarks if provided with the three types of data listed below.

[Program] FIT-LINE UA1780
[Visualize] FAIL VISUALIZER UA1782

When testing populated boards, it’s essential to create accurate data, measure boards accurately, and identify defective locations accurately.
