This document describes how to choose the firmware and model of CloudTesting™ Station.
CloudTesting™ Station is a measurement instrument for measuring and analyzing the semiconductor device. Advantest has been poured generously technology that has been cultivated in the development of semiconductor testers, it is designed to make it easy to implement advanced measurement.
CloudTesting™ Station is available in two models and two firmware. Items that can be measured is different in each of the firmware and model. Therefore, you need to select the appropriate firmware and models.
Choose the firmware
CloudTesting™ Station is available on the two firmware of CX1000_MCU and MEMORY_TYPE_F. The firmware has a function to measure the target device. So, choose the firmware from the type of measurement target.
Please refer to the table below for the target devices each firmwares.
|CX1000_MCU||MCU, Logic IC, ADC, DAC, Sensors, etc.|
|MEMORY_TYPE_F||Flash Memory, DRAM, SRAM, SD card, EEPROM, etc.|
If your measurement target is not included in the table above, please feel free to contact us.
Choose the model
CloudTesting™ Station is available in two models of CX1000P and CX1000D. Each models has a measurement terminal called measurement channel. The number of measurement channels is different for each model. So, choose the model from the number and type of device pins.
Please refer to the table below for the specifications of the measurement channels.
|I/O||Apply digital signal||32 channels||128 channels|
|Power Supply||Apply power supply voltage||2 channels||8 channel|
|Arbitrary Waveform Generator||Generate analog signal||1 channel||4 channel|
|Digitizer||Capture analog signal||1 channel||4 channel|
|Reference Voltage Supply||Apply reference voltage||2 channels||8 channel|
Finally, we check the flow to choose the firmware and models using 1-bit digital adder as an example.
First, select the firmware. The type of device is logic IC, so choose CX1000_MCU firmware.
Then choose the model. The pins of the device are connected to the measurement channels as shown in the table below.
|Pin name||Type of Measurement Channel||Number of Measurement Channel|
|VDD||Power Supply Channel||1|
|A||I / O||1|
|B||I / O||2|
|S||I / O||3|
|C||I / O||4|
In this case, choose the CX1000P because the number of pins is sufficient with CX1000P
