Software Automates In-Circuit Test Coverage Reports
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced a fast and easy-to-use test coverage prediction tool: N1194A Agilent Test Coverage Consultant (ATCC)
The ATCC software 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 the CAD layout files. These two capabilities allow engineers to estimate test coverage early in the product life cycle, when only the CAD layout file is available. ATCC software 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 of PCOLA-SOQ metrics, 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.
Agilent Test Coverage Consultant can be ordered today. Additional information is available at www.agilent.com/find/atcc.
