Chroma 3650 brings you the most cost-effective SoC tester
When the cost of devices keep going down and profit margin keep shrinking, how to find a good test solution for reducing the cost of testing, raising the yield and also keeping the good quality of devices has never been more important than it is today. Chroma 3650 is a SoC tester with high throughput and high parallel test capabilities to provide the most cost-effective solution for fabless, IDM and testing houses. With the full functions of test,high accuracy, powerful software tools and excellent reliability,3650 has the versatile test capabilities for high-performance microcontroller, consumer SoC devices, the peripheral IC devices of PC and digital wafer sort applications.
High performance in a low-cost production system
The 3650 achieves lower test cost not only by reducing the cost of tester system but also by testing more devices faster and the high parallel test capability. With the Chroma PINF IC and the sophisticated calibration system, 3650 has the excellent overall timing accuracy within ±550ps. The pattern generator of 3650 has up to 32M pattern instruction memory. By having the same depth as the vector memory, Chroma 3650 allows to add pattern instruction for each vector. Moreover, the powerful sequential pattern generator provides the variety of pattern commands to meet the demands of complex test vectors. The true test-per-pin architecture and the flexible site mapping with no slot boundaries are designed for multi-site test with high throughput. Up to 512 digital pins, 32 device power supplies, per-pin PMU and the analog test capability, 3650 delivers a combination of high test performance and throughput with cost-effective test solution.
High parallel test capability
The powerful, versatile parallel pin electronics resources of 3650 can simultaneously perform identical parametric tests on multiple pins. The 3650 integrates 64 digital pins onto one single LPC board. In each LPC board, it contains 16 high performance Chroma PINF ICs which owns 4 channels timing generator within 50ps accuracy. The integration of local controller circuitry manages resources setup and result readout, and therefore cuts the overhead time of the system controller. With the any-pin-to-any-site mapping design,3650 provides up to 32 sites high throughput parallel testing capabilities to enlarge the mass production performance with more flexible and easy layout.
The semiconductor industry is a fast moving one, and capital equipment must be built to outlive several device generations. With selective options, like AD/DA converter test, ALPG for memory test, high voltage PE and multiple scan chain test option,Chroma 3650 makes sure that it will serve you for years to come. Moreover, Chroma 3650 platform architecture allows development of focused instruments by third-party suppliers that can be easily added for specific applications. It can stretch the boundaries of test by covering a broader range of devices than ever before possible in a low-cost production test system.
Powerful suite of software tools – CRISP
The 3650 features the powerful suite of software tools using Chroma Integrated Software Platform, CRISP. Not only provides the rapid test development function, CRISP covers all needs for test debugging, production and data analysis. The CRISP integrates the software functions of test development, test execution control, data analysis and tester management together. Based on the Microsoft Windows XP® operation system and C++ programming language, CRISP provides the powerful, easy-to-use, intuitive, and fast-runtime GUI tools for users. In the Project IDE tool, test developer can easily shift between standard template, user-defined template and C++ code-based editor to create their test program quickly and automatically scale to multi-site for parallel test. Besides, CRISP also provides the test program and test pattern converters to facilitate the test conversion from other tester platforms to 3650.
For the test program execution controller, user can select the System Control tool or Plan Debugger tool for normal mode or debugging mode. In the Plan Debugger tool, user can control the execution of test program by setting break point, step, step-into, step-over, resume execution, variable-watch and variable-modify, etc. For the test debugging and data analyzing purposes, 3650 provides abundant software utility tools. Datalog, Waveform and Scope tools are designed to support the measured data and digital waveform display. To find the parametric margin, SHMOO and Pin Margin tools can easily accomplish debug by auto-mode or manual-mode execution. Besides, the Wafer Map, Summary, Histogram and STDF tools are very helpful and powerful for collecting the test results and analyzing the parametric characterization. As for the Test Condition Monitor and Pattern Editor tools, they provide the superior functions for run-time debugging to change the test conditions or pattern data without breaking the test or modifying the source files. Besides, CRISP also prepares the ADDA tool and Bit Map tool for the analog and ALPG option. Using the ADDA tool, user can not only see the AD/DA test result by graphic tool, user can also create the ADC pattern easily. The full suite of powerful GUI tools will definitely meet the various purposes for test debugging and test report.
The OCI tool is the solution of CRISP for mass production. Easy-and-correct operation is the most important request for production run. Programmer can customize the setup of OCI tool by the Production Setup tool to meet the production environment requirement in advance. Then, what an operator has to do is just to select the planned process to start the mass production.
The 3650 provides multiple drivers for communications with handler and prober by GPIB and TTL interface. The supported handlers or probers include SEIKO-EPSON, SHIBASOKU, MULTITEST, ASECO, DAYMARC, TEL, TSK and OPUS II, and so forth. In addition to provide the convenient converter tools for test platform migration, 3650 provides the adaptor board solution for existed tester platform to save the cost of users. Through the adaptor board solution, Chroma 3650 can accept the DIB and probe card of other testers directly to save the cost for making the new load boards and probe cards.
With the air-cooled and small footprint tester-in-a-test-head design, 3650 delivers high throughput in a highly integrated package for minimum floor space. A mainframe cabinet contains the power distribution units and the space for third-party instruments. With an optional manipulator, 3650 can be used in both package and wafer test.
