  4. 4. ICT Incircuit Test RNS International continues to establish itself as a leader in high-quality In-Circuit Test (ICT) and Functional Verification Test (FVT) equipment. We offer a full range of products and services for the “industry standard” test systems, including HP/Agilent and Teradyne (Genrad, Spectrum and Zenthel), VXI, PXI and any other test system. RNS also has strong capabilities in developing and manufacturing of wireless test fixtures. ICT Backer Gate RNS Backer Gates are manufactured of extruded alumi- num to surround the circuit board under test and allow for mounting of push elements and sensors, as well as keeping the board under test flat and free of stress. This fixture design is suitable for a large variety of products. Our most common test fixture contains a backer gate, also known as a Mechanical Over-Clamp. ICT Vacuum Cover The “Vacuum Box” or „Vacuum Cover“ utilizes the tester vacuum to lower the board under test onto the test points with the aid of the upper plate, with its push elements. We constantly design variations of this product, and appre- ciate challenges that allow us to continually expand our con- siderable library. The smallest probe size we currently incor- porate is 25 Mil. Test probes for 40 and 50 Mil are standard in fixtures built by RNS. ICT ZSK Clamshell If a particular application requires testing of top side points the use of a Vacuum Box and a ZSK, or Clamshell unit is the answer. While similar to other companies, Vacuum Clamshells (ZSK) contains proven innovations that give it superior action and reliability. ICT Pneumatic If vacuum is not an option, and node count exceeds the capability of a manual fixture, a Pneumatic Fixture may be the answer. RNS has developed and built pneumatic fixtures to satisfy this need. Turn to RNS to solve all your test fixture needs. ICT Manual Actuation If vacuum and pneumatic actuation is not an option, and node count is less than 500, a manual actuation will be the most suitable solution. Please contact us for more informa- tion. Any of the aforementioned hold-down systems can be equipped with Beside our main field of developing test equipment, we also develop mechanical and/or pneumatic Side & Top Access Units (SAU, TAU) to equipment for special test applications and equipment for produc- probe connectors or other components mounted perpendicular to the tion (offline or inline). unit under test (UUT). Regardless of the requirements and specifications, we will provide We also provide both standard and custom inducer units for testing. • Commitment • Service • Quality to assure a robust, durable equipment that performs equally well today According to the application, the tester and customer specifications, and tomorrow. We stand behind this pledge categorically. we utilize Test-Jets, Polarity Checks, Opens Express, Junctions Express, Frame-Scan Plus, etc.4
  5. 5. FVT/FCT Functional TestDevelopment and manufacturing of reliable(Automated) Test Equipment suitable for testing: • Components only • Cable assemblies • RF (Radio Frequency) • HiPot (High Voltage) • Wireless • Completed PCB assemblies • Completed unitsThe launching pad for our functional design is the particu-lar application. From here, we can customize the fixturesfor virtually any requirement or contingency.Our expertise enables us to design functional fixtures withthe same care and concern used to create our ICT fixtures.An additional service we offer is the restoration and up-dating of existing fixtures manufactured by other vendors.We have extensive experience not only modernizing suchfixtures but also improving them.At RNS we are equipped to adapt existing fixtures tonewly automated systems. We have taken fixtures fromother vendors and update them utilizing new technologyto improve performance.Whether the requirement involves interfacing with currentfunctional equipment, assisting with selecting or updatingfunctional systems, or simply minimizing the labor incurrent functional testing, RNS and its partners are staf-fed and prepared to execute the necessary task.While we are known mostly for the quality of our ICTfixtures, our Functional fixtures are equally as sturdy andreliable. 5

  8. 8. WriteNow! Single and Parallel In-System programmers Key Features • Ultra-fast, universal In-System Programmers • True parallel, program up to 8 devices at once • Industrial-grade reliability • Standalone operations or host controlled • Easy to install and to use • Compact size, fixture friendly It is a common need nowadays, to program microcontrollers with over 1 MB of Flash or serial memories with over 64 MB. The faster the programming the lower the production cost. Frequently PCBs are grouped into PCB Panels. To program all devices in a panel, a traditional approach consits using either multiple programming tools (which adds cost and complexity) or a de-multiplexing solution (with slow overall programming speed). To address the combined need for both fast and parallel programming, Algocraft has designed the innovative WriteNow! ISP technology, which allows to reach the theo- retical programming speed for any given device on up to 8 devices at once. This drastically reduces programming time, costs and system complexity. The WriteNow! technology has been created with speed and reliability as key features and contains state-of-the-art components and techniques. WriteNow! programmers easily allows to custom program each single device with variable data such as serial number, product vendor ID, batch number, barcode data and any other variable data. The data encryption feature coupled with LAN connectivity allows manufacturing companies securely synchronize local data with distant production faci- lities. A built-in relay barrier allows ISP lines to be disconnected from the target system, thus allowing other operations (i.e. functional test) to be performed by other euqipment. These and many other features makes the WriteNow! pro- grammers the most complete, powerful and cost-effective solution for every in-system programming need.

  10. 10. Quality & Additional Fixture Services In-process QC and Final QA To RNS, quality counts. RNS always ships a quality working product. Our workflow entails several steps to ensure the highest possible quality. Quality Control (QC) at RNS begins at the Engineering Department and goes through the entire production process. Each component is carefully checked, with in-process QC, to assure both dimensional accuracy and suitability for the application. After wiring is completed the fixture goes onto our verifying machines to make sure the wiring is to customer require- ments. Before the fixture will be shipped, it has to pass a thorough final Quality Assurance (QA) inspection. Every aspect of the fixture is carefully tested. Additional Services for Test Equipment and Manufacturing Process RNS provides the following additional services: • FEA Board Stress Analysis • Strain Gauge Testing • 3D Modeling (Autodesk Inventor) • Test Fixture redesign and optimization from other vendors (incl. maintenance) • Local fixture maintenance & support (Global Service Partners) • Sub-Assembly and Final-Assembly Services • Wiring Services (Wire-Wrap, Soldering, Crimping etc.) • High Precision Machining, Drilling and Milling (CNC) • Engineering Services and Development *RoHs complient INTERNATIONAL Contact: RNS International, Inc.
