Goepel electronic Extends Embedded Board Test for Intel Arria 10 SoC


Reading time ( words)

Goepel electronic has extended its embedded board test technologies ChipVORX and VarioTAP with support for the Intel Arria 10 SoC (system-on-chip). The new IP models simplify testing and programming of the devices.

The ChipVORX and VarioTAP technologies are accessed via JTAG interface and provide high performance test related functions including external SPI flash programming, access to internal functional blocks, GPIOs, external RAM tests, frequency measurement, high speed interface tests and even bit error rate tests (BERT), all through simple JTAG access.

Intel Arria 10 SoCs are equipped with a dual core ARM Cortex 9 processor, which can be utilized in a wide range of test applications. As BGA packaging does not allow for direct pin access, the aim of VarioTAP and ChipVORX emulation technologies is to provide embedded tools for testing, hardware debug, flash programming and design validation after assembly.

Goepel electronic is a leading provider of innovative test and inspection solutions for printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and electronic devices and systems. The company is divided into four divisions:

  • Automotive Test Solutions
  • Embedded JTAG Solutions
  • Industrial Function Test
  • Inspection Solutions AOI·AXI·SPI·IVS

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 1)

04/24/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
As innovation and demand continue to drive miniaturization in electronics, manufacturers face the constant challenge of assembling smaller and smaller components with repeatable processes and high yields. Stencil printing is the first step in the PWB assembly process, and improvements to the SMT stencil can significantly improve yields, especially for more challenging miniaturized products. The primary inputs in the SMT stencil manufacturing process are material, equipment, and processes, and by continuously improving these inputs, the overall print process is improved. The most important material in the process of manufacturing SMT stencils is the foil itself. This article investigates foil types used with the goal of determining which foils provide the best print performance.
