The push toward miniaturization in the electronics industry has left designers little or no room for test points, and the expansion of high frequency (HF) technologies has resulted in a growing need for test equipment that has the capability to verify these types of generally very small circuits. Seica’s (Salem, NH) Pilot4D V8 HF offers a solution combining flying probe technology and high frequency testing. Using its very precise probing capabilities to contact even the smallest points (down to 008004 components), the system’s dedicated HF instrumentation has been integrated to provide the capability to verify HF signals up to 1.6 GHz. The solution includes a number of hardware and software innovations to create the electrical conditions necessary to perform these high performance measurements, which include clock frequency, rise and fall times, setup and hold time of critical signals.
