Seica SPA, one of Italy's leading electronics test solutions OEM, said its new VIVA Integrated Platform (VIP) is based on a unique software and hardware architecture which includes cutting-edge technology to implement the multiple test strategies needed to address the challenges of electronic testing.

Dave Sigillo, Seica's GM for its North America operations, shared, "There is no doubt with the escalating density and complexity of modern electronics, increasing pressures to reduce cost and cycle time, and shorter product life cycles are stressing test solutions at all levels."

"The new Seica platform uses advanced technology such as Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and Synthetic Instruments combined with the innovative VIVA software to optimize test program development time, fault coverage and test time," Sigillo added.

The included VIVA software organizes test program development into a simple 3-step, Prepare-Verify-Test process, which guides the user through a series of automated operations in a self-explanatory environment. Using a common software architecture on all Seica products enables seamless migration between different test strategies used throughout the product's life cycle and incremental test generation, which allows additional performance to be added to the existing program without regenerating an entirely new test program. Existing programs can be deployed on a new platform or new features can simply be added to enhance fault coverage on a given system, said the press release.

"We are implementing Seica's new VIP into all of our products, to give our customers the real benefit of the power and flexibility they need to maximize their test investment through the entire life cycle of a product, while reducing overall cost of test," said Sigillo, "which is precisely what we believe new technology should do."
