The First IMA Compliant Test System
The first LTX-Credence offering using IMA is the Diamond10 platform. As an example, an IMA tester array using three air-cooled Diamond10 test systems will provide test capability up to 2,400 digital/analog pins, in a footprint one half the floor space compared to traditional high pin count platforms.
Diamond10 IMA arrays deliver a lower cost of test compared to systems architected to support high pin count resources. Additionally, they can accommodate multi-site applications exceeding 256 devices. Application programs developed on a single Diamond tester are fully compatible with a Diamond IMA array and require no modifications.
IMA tester arrays using Diamond10 testers are offered in two mechanical formats – X2 (integrating 2 Diamond10 systems) and X3 (integrating 3 Diamond10 systems). Using soft docking techniques, the IMA approach can be extended to a maximum of ten Diamond systems integrated together.
An IMA tester array of Diamond10 systems takes advantage of all the instruments currently available for the Diamond10 Platform.
