short production runs, new product launches all present a challenge in the
How do you ensure that pcb test programs and fixtures are up and running
simultaneously with a product
production launch? The new GRS500 from Polar is designed to help you.
Designed especially to
troubleshoot in the following situations — prototype boards, newly
launched products and
production runs that are too small to justify traditional ATE. This
facilitates comprehensive test with the advantage
of low set-up times and cost. The key is the extensive use of CAD data
combined with simple and proven
troubleshooting technology. When production ramps up, the GRS500 is an
invaluable asset supporting
your functional test and maximising yields.
your circuit boards with the GRS500
Designed to help
troubleshoot complex boards when fixture based tools are not a viable
solution, the GRS500 is designed to help you compare the characteristics
of good and faulty PCBs, using nodal impedance test, and a "Videosection"
technique which presents you with high resolution images of a good board
for use in live video comparison with the board under test, - finally
powerful CAD based repair software helps you track down the position of
the fault on the suspect net.
Versatile probing system
Designed to troubleshoot on
all technologies, the GRS Probing system features:
100mm flying probe height allowing clear flight over the tallest components.
• Two live video cameras
• Camera one for programming and inspection
• Camera two for live view of probing position
The GRS capability includes
troubleshooting on technology from SMT, through hole and BGA (the GRS
automatically assigns test points to all accessible nets connected to BGA).
