Digital twin

Faster prototyping, testing and validation of products and processes

Digital twin for the electronics industry

Digital twin technology creates a virtual copy of a physical object or system. The ASTER software platform creates the digital twin of:

  • Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) from layout, schematic and netlist files
  • Component placement machines including pick & place and chip shooter
  • Inspection equipment including Solder Paster Inspection (SPI), Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Automated X-Ray Inspection
  • Electrical testers including Boundary-scan, In-circuit and Flying probe

ASTER’s software solutions allow engineers to simulate PCBA and the manufacturing/test machines in a digital environment to:

  • Analyze designs for potential failures and defects: By using DRC, DfM, DfA, DfT, companies can prevent defects and optimize the design of electronic systems before they are built
  • Simulate test strategies to maximize test coverage: By simulating different tester methods, companies can maximize defect detection to push failures upstream of production operations
  • Generate lean test programs to optimize efficiency: Test strategy simulations eliminate test redundancy, optimizing cycle time, reducing debug time and saving engineering time
