Title (EN) FRONT END MODULE FOR AUTOMATIC TEST EQUIPMENT
(FR) MODULE FRONTAL POUR ÉQUIPEMENT D’ESSAI AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Example automatic test equipment (ATE) includes: a test instrument for outputting test signals to test a device under test (DUT), and for receiving output signals from the DUT, with the test instrument including a front-end module, and with the front-end module including internal circuitry for performing functions relating to the DUT; and external circuitry for performing the functions relative to the DUT via the test instrument, with the external circuitry being external to the front-end module and being shared among multiple front-end modules or channels of the test instrument. The test instrument is configurable to use either (i) the internal circuitry, (ii) the external circuitry, or (iii) a combination of circuits in the internal circuitry and the external circuitry to perform the functions.
(FR) Un équipement d’essai automatique (ATE) exemplaire de la présente invention comprend : un instrument d’essai pour délivrer en sortie des signaux d’essai pour évaluer un dispositif soumis à essai (DUT), et pour recevoir des signaux de sortie provenant du DUT, l’instrument d’essai comprenant un module frontal, et le module frontal comprenant un circuit interne pour exécuter des fonctions liées au DUT ; et un circuit externe pour exécuter les fonctions relatives au DUT par l’intermédiaire de l’instrument d’essai, le circuit externe étant externe au module frontal et étant partagé par des modules frontaux ou canaux multiples de l’instrument d’essai. L’instrument d’essai peut être configuré pour utiliser soit (i) le circuit interne, (ii) le circuit externe, ou (iii) une combinaison de circuits dans le circuit interne et le circuit externe pour exécuter les fonctions.
