New Power module YAV90070.
importance of a reliable Mass interconnect interface on a Functional test
system is largely recognized and accepted in the market. It provides for
each tester a more reliable, standard, modular and flexible interface
independent of the measurement instrumentation selected for the test
system. The VPC 90 series Mass Interconnect Solutions are widely used and
accepted as the
major standard for universal test systems.
One but only unwanted side effect of this is the added wiring and cabling needed to connect the Mass Interconnect Interface (MIC) with your instrumentation. This creates additional signal lengths with all it possible side effects like cross-talk, added resistance and capacitance between adjacent signals. It also adds to the complexity of your wiring diagrams and schematic diagrams making fault finding more difficult.
This is one of the many issues you encounter
when developing a test system. With 6TLís
system wiring is one off the many issues that are addressed, making it
possible for engineers to develop a test system in a more efficient and
reliable way, saving up to 70% in time in the entire test system
development and build process.
Technology has been developed not only to minimize
internal system wiring but to make building test systems in general much
more efficient, using intelligent building blocks.
One perfect example is 6TLís new YAV90070 Power module.
power module is an innovative solution to bring a
regulated and programmable power supply from inside the test system to
immediately behind the test system interface. The YAV90070 has a VPC MIC
connector mounted on the front of the board enabling it to be placed
directly inside the VPC 90 series MIC interface. This approach saves a lot
of rack space needed for normal 19Ē programmable power supplies where
now we can use a simpler, lower cost, fixed power supply, as an input to
YAV90070 power module.
This enables engineers to integrate
programmable power supplies inside compact base test solutions like the fastATE
6TL-08 compact test platform.
YAV90070 power module contains the three
most common and wanted subsystems in general purpose automatic test
Conditioned AC input with relay control for a
ďsoft startĒ of the Unit Under Test (UUT), detecting a short circuit
Three DC isolated programmable power supplies,
providing the typical, most commonly used, power
3) A direct connection from the ITA to two passive or active loads that might be installed inside the test system.
As an extra the YAV90070 also provides a four wire link from the MIC interface connector to the back of the board to be able to contact directly an external DMM or fixed power supply. A connector is present that can be hard wired to the emergency circuitry or ITA engagement switch in the VPC G12 MIC receiver, removing the power from the fixture in case ITA is being removed during test or the emergency button is pushed.
The micro controller of the
YAV90070 has Ethernet, USB and CAN bus connections. It can act as a LAN to
CAN gateway, passing commands received through Ethernet to CAN to address
modules that might be present in your MIC receiver interface
or test system without the need for an additional CAN interface in your
The USB port is only for
internal use and will be used for firmware updates.
