by Clemence Sop

Konrad Technologies Launches High-Speed, Automated Inline Board – Components Test System the LEON Inline Tiny Based On The Konrad ABex (Analog Bus Extension for PXI) Standard Platform.

Radolfzell, Germany – April 19th, 2017 - Konrad Technologies, the provider of value added, platform based automated test solutions used to solve the world´s most complex engineering challenges, launched today the Leon Inline Tiny -  A cost effective high volume manufacturing inline test system for In-circuit Test, Functional Test, Boundary Scan with up to 1500 test points.

Ensure the Highest Quality Anywhere On The Production Line

Featuring Konrad’s leading test technologies and fully automated test expertise, this high-volume manufacturing inline test system integrates well with high standard board handling equipment, including conveyors and short stations and is suitable for straightforward integration into production or testing lines. With a short set-up time and automated fixtures, manufacturers can save time and money automating their production.

To meet the highest industry standards, the Leon Inline Tiny is a high speed automated inboard handling system developed with scalability and lowest cost of test in mind – The Leon inline Tiny integrates seamlessly with our LEON Fixture enabling an easy ramp up/down of productions quantities. This innovative test system is highly extensible and paves the way for manufacturing intelligence.Andreas Millinger, Head of Hardware Development.

By residing completely within the line automation equipment footprint, the Leon Inline Tiny offers a complete configuration for most testing operations and features safety interlocks essential to automated operation, thus improving accuracy and fault coverage. It also incorporates the robust ABex - Analog Bus Extension Backplane as well as automated board handling.  This economic volume manufacturing system also fits the requirements for electronic manufacturing within the automotive industry.

A Unique Platform For All Test Challenges

The ABex (Analog Bus Extension for PXI) is an exceptional test platform that extends to accelerate productivity, development throughput and time to market. Applicable in various industries and technological fields, this platform covers complex test challenges anywhere on the production line. Due to its flexible system architecture with an analog bus backplane and terminal modules, the platform allows the integration of technology specific extensions with the benefit of short system setup times and a reduction in total system costs.

Konrad Technologies exploits the flexibility of the ABex PXI platform extension to develop test solutions that provide our customers with efficient sharing of analog and digital resources to reduce development and deployment costs. The combination of PXI & ABex results in test stations that feature instrument to DUT connectivity that can stand up to the harshest environments.
