GOEPEL electronics has announced the RAPIDO RPS910 that promises to added flexibility with regard to inline testing and programming of electronic assemblies such as non-volatile memories. According to the company, the technology includes boundary scan/JTAG testing as an option to gain confidence in the build quality as early as possible in the production process.

The RAPIDO has been specially developed for complex assemblies with very high density designs such as BGAs, which are difficult to access and fast to place, often creating a faster line rate, noted GOEPEL. Featuring a unique mechanism, the RAPIDO ensures the precise contact on both sides of the board being tested is achieved even at higher needle numbers, providing a low-maintenance and lightning-fast access method, touted the company.


With further development of the proven GOEPEL in-system programming technology, it offers a larger conveyer, which supports the input buffering of boards with widths up to 400mm, thus reducing handling times. Numerous electrical and mechanical optimisations and variable adaptive conveyer speeds, as well as the self-test function, make the RAPIDO RPS910 a diverse multi-product inline programmer, indicated the company. In addition, the version RPS910-S32 has been designed for parallel processing of up to 32 UUTs or devices. With the recently developed hardware concept, true parallel programming of different targets on one assembly can be achieved.

Also part of the RAPIDO is the fixture identification and data (FID) module, essential for a system that will be flexible enough to be used on a mixed product line with multiple fixtures. The module is used for intelligent identification and data storage. It ensures the compatibility of the adapter with the boards under test and it will automatically configure the entire test system for the project, such as conveyer settings and test program selection, among others. Furthermore, it saves the entire maintenance history of the adapter and automatically indicates necessary maintenance (e.g. needle change), GOEPLE added.
