VTEP v2.0 Powered, with Cover-Extend Technology
What is Cover-Extend Technology (CET) ?
Proven in high volume manufacturing, CET is a hybrid technology between the popular VTEP and the standardized Boundary Scan methodology – resulting in a powerful solution for limited-access PCBAs.
The award-winning solution uses the on-board Boundary Scan devices to drive stimulus into the device-under-test (DUT) for the VTEP sensor plates to capacitively pick up – thereby detecting faults.
Test coverage without test access
Using Boundary Scan to drive the stimulus that VTEP needs means you do not need to provide for physical test points at those Boundary Scan pin outputs leadings into your DUT (Device-Under-Test).
In fact, based on a study on a notebook product, the savings can be up to 28% of total nodes. This number can be higher on other products.
Do Not Require Special Boundary Scan Instructions
Get full returns on your investment! CET do not require special or proprietary Boundary Scan instructions to work. This means users have a wider selection of choices and greater scope of application.
Lower Cost of Test – Fixturing, ICT and Others
Savings in test points lead to savings in fixturing cost, ICT test resources and other related cost as well.
Based on the study above, a savings of 700 test probes can lead to a cut of USD5000 in fixturing cost and USD55,000 worth of ICT pin cards resources.
Improved Board Quality. Reduce Strain on Solder Joints
Naturally with improved test coverage comes improved product quality. However, in times where BGAs can easily exceed 1000 solder balls, this also means a considerable reduction in the strain on solder joints that will be present if traditional test probing method are used.
