Aster & Itochu with strategic partnership
Aster Technologies and Itochu have formed a strategic partnership that enables Itochu to supply their Takaya flying probe tester customers with Aster’s TPQR for Takaya, the test coverage analysis tool.
TPQR is built around the QuadView, next generation viewers for the Electronics Industry. Utilizing this powerful layout and schematic viewer, allows users to visualize coverage at both device and pin level. This software imports the Takaya test program, computes the test coverage and generates detailed reports in HTML and MS-EXCEL format that provide precise, detailed and impartial international test coverage metrics, such as PPVS and PCOLA/SOQ. When the Takaya is combined with Boundary-Scan test equipment such as: Acculogic, Asset, Corelis, Flynn, Goepel, JTAG Technologies or XJTAG, the Takaya test program is dynamically optimized by removing the redundant test steps. The flying probe test time could be reduced by a factor of 30% to 80%, significantly increasing the throughput on the production line.
