ASTER Technologies announces a X10 improvement in QuadView loading
QuadView quick startASTER has announced a X10 improvement in the time it takes to load schematic, layout and netlist navigation views within their QuadView next generation viewer. Using the unique Quick Start technology, significant improvements are made in the time taken to load board layout views within the repair environment, enabling users to quickly and easily diagnose and repair faults.

Christophe LOTZ, Product Director of ASTER Technologies said, "We see significant benefits in the ability to load even the most complex of board views in a matter of seconds, allowing instant visualization of board designs in either the development and repair environments."

ASTER demonstrates TAKAYA test program optimization at the Accelonix 'Test in Production Seminar' in Eindhoven, The Netherlands
ASTER demonstrated how TestWay can optimize existing TAKAYA test programs to significantly reduce test and debug time.
TAKAYAASTER was pleased to be invited to present the advanced features of TestWay at the recent Test in Production Seminar, organised by Accelonix NL and held in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on the 8th February, 2007. It was an opportunity to demonstrate to the attendees how TestWay fits into the design and manufacturing test flow to improve product yield from design through to production.

ASTER demonstrated how TestWay could interface with the TAKAYA (Flying Probe) test program to optimize existing pre-debug or post-debug test programs to reflect the test coverage optimization predicted by TestWay in analysing an enhanced test strategy scenario that uses a combination of complimentary test solutions, such as AOI and Boundary-Scan (BST) test. This optimization process can significantly reduce test and debug time by between 30% to 80% depending on the combined test steps (AOI, AXI, FPT, BST, FT) executed by the overall test line.

Accelonix NL, based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, represent ASTER Technologies in the Benelux region.
