TDM has installed our first standalone FCT fixtures in a major ECM account for a major medical (USA FDA controlled) OEM in Malaysia.

01-August-2018
TDM has installed our microcontroller IoT test assist in ICT fixtures in a major ECM account for a major medical (USA FDA controlled) OEM in Malaysia. The solution exploits parallelism to save ~12 seconds of test time. We boot the IoT module before we start loading firmware in the application UUT microcontroller using the GenRad/Teradyne system and DSM. During this time, our own test fixture test assist microcontroller is waiting for the IoT device to be ready. Once this happens, all of our testing dialog takes place. The IoT device is tested, parameters are set, the SIM is tested, and unique numbers are logged. All in parallel with the firmware load. A major achievement for 10 testers and fixtures running 2 million boards per year!
