Agilent Launches New ICT Series
Series 5 test platform.
Santa Clara, CA — Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the Medalist i3070 Series 5 in-circuit test (ICT) platform. The new system offers new analog measurement technology together with the industry's fastest 12MHz hybrid pin card, giving electronic manufacturers 20 to 30 percent throughput improvement over the current i3070 at the same list prices. This enables contract manufacturers to considerably reduce their cost of test while increasing coverage.

The Series 5 ICT system also offers a new infrastructure that allows manufacturers to incorporate external circuits easily for added test coverage while providing better control of those circuits. Instead of having multiple sets of external circuits in multiple fixtures, manufacturers can now put the external circuits in the testhead. This way, they need only one set per tester, which can save them significant test costs. The company has already identified partners to provide high-speed flash programming solutions, LED testing and boundary-scan solutions via these external circuits.

Current users of i3070 and 3070 PC systems can run most of their ICT programs seamlessly on the new Series 5 tester. Fixtures built since the introduction of the 3070 remain compatible, protecting the manufacturer's investment.
