Goepel Intros 8-Channel I/O Module
8-channel I/O module.
Jena, Germany — Goepel electronic is introducing the SFX-6308 module, a new addition to the company's JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware platform SCANFLEX®. This new I/O Module (SFX-Module) has 8 independent analog I/O channels with additional digital resources and supports application-specific in-system reconfiguration by using the integrated VarioCORE® technology providing four output channels with extended current yield.

The current yield is up to 200mA at ±10V and four bipolar input channels with a range of ±10V. All channels have a 12-Bit resolution and can be disconnected from the UUT via relays. The module can be combined with any SCANFLEX controller (available for PCI, PCI Express, PXI, PXI Express, FireWire, USB, and LAN). Standard features such as programmable range selection, external triggering, and VarioCORE technology make the module a versatile tool to test a variety of circuit functions, such as analog/digital converters, DC/DC transformers, digital/analog converters, digital potentiometers, and extremely low-resistance input stages in interaction with Boundary Scan operations. In addition, the reconfiguration of the integrated module resources allows the programming of complex dynamic I/O functions that can be run autonomously, further extending the achievable fault coverage. The module is fully supported in the Boundary Scan Software SYSTEM CASCON from version 4.x on. Module configuration and handling of analog/digital test data are based on user-friendly CASLAN instructions. CASLAN is an extremely powerful Boundary Scan programming language with several hundred commands supporting IEEE1149.1, IEEE1149.4, IEEE1149.6, IEEE1532, and JESD71 as well as mixed signal operations.

By simultaneously using multiple SFX-6308 modules, the channel count can be extended as needed. The modules are automatically identified by the AutoDetect feature.
