Designed to place high pin-count ICs into known states by switching VDD and VSS supplies and ac-vector sources, the MTS7000 switch subsystem also provides capabilities for multi-point IDDQ testing and analog circuit debugging. The subsystem uses shielded switching modules that allow 512- or 1,024-pin subsystems to be housed in footprints that can be used in a laboratory environment. Dthe subsystem can reportedly eliminate the need for production testers. Applications include yield enhancements, customer returns, ESD failures, or process improvements.
