Description

The TS-321 GENASYS platform is a PXI based, single-bay test system designed to address a broad range of mil-aero and mission-critical products that require performance functional testing. The GENASYS offers best in class digital test capabilities which can effectively address the test needs associated with legacy ATE systems including the Teradyne L200/L300, GenRad 2750 and VXI-based digital systems. The TS-321 is available with range of digital and analog instrument options for addressing both LRU and SRU test needs as well as supporting depot and manufacturing test needs. The TS-321 switching subsystem supports an "any resource to any pin", scalable architecture.

Features

The TS-321’s core system includes the GX5960 digital subsystem which offers best-in-class performance digital test capabilities. Featuring a 50 MHz vector rate, programmable voltage levels per pin, timing per pin and multiple time sets, the GX5960 subsystem provides all of the features necessary for complex functional testing or for legacy test program migration. Additionally, the GENASYS platform provides access to an analog bus, allowing each digital channel to have hybrid signal capability when configured with a GENASYS analog switching matrix which provides any resource to any pin signal routing. For multiplexed pin configurations, the GENASYS can be configured with up to (9) 1:16 multiplexer switch cards, providing up to 2304 multiplexed pin connections to the UUT interface.

The scalable architecture allows multiple configurations starting at 64 digital pins, and a mix of low frequency and high frequency switching channels with matrix, multiplexer, or Multi-Matrix topologies. Also included are system power supplies and environmental monitoring. A wide range of optional instrumentation and switching is available, allowing the GENASYS to be configured for a customer's specific needs.

TS-321 Core System
The core system offers the following features:
  • GX7017 20-slot, GENASYS 6U PXI chassis which supports up to (9) GENASYS switching cards and up to (8) GX5960 digital subsystem cards or up to 10 PXI cards.
  • GENASYS switching subsystem with integrated SCOUT receiver
  • GX5960 high performance digital subsystem, providing 16 to 240 digital channels with per pin attribute programmability
  • External PC with Windows® OS
  • 6½ digit DMM
  • High density, 8000 I/O SCOUT receiver with integral direct access adapters, providing a reliable and high performance wireless interface from tester instrumentation to the tester’s receiver interface.
TS-321 Analog Instrument Options
Various analog source and measure instrumentation options are available for the TS-321 system:
  • PXI Dual-Channel Arbitrary Waveform Function Generator
  • Four Channel DSO
  • PXI Two Channel Counter / Timer

TS-321 Analog Switching Options
The modular analog switching subsystem options for the TS-321 system include:
  • 16 channel, 1:12 100 MHz multiplexer
  • 16 channel, 1:16 hybrid pin multiplexer
  • 16 x 32 matrix cards, supporting configurations up to 16 x 256
  • 4 channel, 2:16 500 MHz, 75 0hm, multiplexer

TS-321 User Supply and SMU Options
Programmable user supply and SMU options include:
  • Keysight N6700 programmable power supply mainframe and DC modules
  • Keithley 2600 Source / Measure Units (SMUs),  (single and dual channel)
In addition, a wide range of 3rd party PXI, cPCI, and GPIB instruments can be integrated into the test system to meet specific test needs.

System Self-Test
The TS-321 is delivered with a system self test which includes an interactive self-test software procedure as well as a self-test adapter. The self-test verifies functional integrity of the system and resource connections to the test system interface.

Software

The TS-321 includes ATEasy, a test executive and test programming software suite, as well as all of the necessary instrument drivers. The TS-321 also includes SwitchEasy which simplifies the programming of the switching subsystem and an L200 driver to assist with the migration of L200 and L300 programs. In addition, for applications that require the importing of LASAR .tap files, optional DtifEasy can be used to import and execute LASAR-based digital vector files for go / no-go, fault dictionary, and guided probe applications.

Applications

  • LRU and SRU test and repair
  • Depot repair of avionics modules and systems
  • Legacy test system replacement / upgrading
  • Manufacturing test of satellite payload / platform management systems (RTU/RIU), armament electronics, avionics
