TestWay

ASTER is the leading supplier of electrical Design for Test (DfT) analysis, test coverage analysis, viewing and quality management tools to the global electronics industry, capitalizing on proven expertise in PCB testability developed through strong customer relations.

TestWay provides:
  • A unique solution to analyze design and testability requirements early in the design stage to ensure that adequate measures have been made to comply with manufacturers test requirements. It is the only tool in the market to review testability requirements at the schematic capture stage.
  • Design and testability rules checking, test point optimization and an integrated platform for test coverage prediction and measurement across complementary test strategies.
  • Advanced test strategy analysis including test balancing across a combination of test solutions, such as; AOI, AXI, ICT, MDA, FPT, BST and FT.

TestWay Express

TestWay Express allows users to combine, within a heterogeneous production line, various types of inspection or test equipments, which allows test coverage qualification to be carried out for each individual test stage, but also consolidates the coverage for the complete production line.

  • It allows users to calculate the theoretical coverage aligned to various test strategies, prior to product development, in order to identify areas where test coverage can be improved. The ability to optimize the theoretical test coverage will result in higher production yields and ultimately a lower cost of ownership, achieved by improving test effectiveness in terms of test coverage.
  • Alternatively, TestWay Express can conduct a post-development analysis by reading the test programs or coverage reports from the various testers used within the manufacturing cycle, and calculate the real coverage that is achievable.

As a result, it is possible to make a comparison between the theoretical and real test coverage. A variety of test scenarios and test line combinations are created by simply drag and dropping items from the test equipment list to replicate the tester line. By simulating various combinations, customers can leverage the benefits of each solution in reducing the number of false calls, diagnostic inaccuracies and eliminating overlapping tests, resulting in a reduction of the overall test time.

TestWay Express will not only, quickly identify the lack of coverage within an overall, combined test strategy, but will also identify the shortfall for each specific test stage by analyzing the number of defects detected at each stage in the test line.

QuadView

QUADView is a powerful schematic and board layout viewer. It can be used either as a standalone viewer or fully integrated within a customer's application. It interacts with the TestWay product to provide graphical visualization of test coverage and fault diagnosis.
QUADView has a unique digitization capability that allows users to create the schematic view directly from a searchable PDF file.

Visualization features are:
  • Schematic view can be created from standard formats such as HPGL, PDF etc.
  • Layout views can be created from standard formats such as CAMCAD, FATF, ODB++, GENCAD, or direct from CAD layout.
  • Search components, pins and nets throughout design hierarchy and across multiple sheets.
  • Cross-probing between schematic, layout and TestWay report files.
  • Flexible color assignment to simplify test coverage analysis and fault localisation.

QuadView is fully integrated with Cascon.

TPQR [Test Program Quality Report] is a "low-cost" and "easy-to-use" software tool for PCB analysis. Based on the leading TestWay's core, it makes it possible to quantify and qualify the test coverage for many inspection and test equipments.
