Generic Search IP is an algorithm IP that evaluates various characteristics by executing a measurement item that uses any algorithm IP.
It can evaluate the target characteristic parameter easily by using the variable to the parameter.
Generic Search IP can evaluate various characteristics with a debugged measurement item.
For example, it can perform the following evaluations easily.
- Measure the maximum operation frequency with Functional Testing IP.
- Measure the minimum operation power supply voltage with Functional Testing IP.
- Measure the VIH with Functional Testing IP.
- Measure the VIL with Functional Testing IP.
- Scan the applying voltage or current to evaluate the electrical characteristics with DC Parametric Measure IP.
- Evaluate the power supply current characteristics for power supply voltage with Power Supply Current Measure IP.
- Evaluate the operation frequency for power supply voltage with Power Supply Measure IP.
- Evaluate the duty ratio margin and the oscillating frequency with Frequency Measure IP.
Generic Search IP has the following functions.
- By changing the value of the variable used in the specified measure item, the PASS/FAIL transition point of measure item is searched.
- Can search with one of search methods: Linear search, Binary search and Full Scan.
- Can judge the search result with limit value.
- Can store the search result to [Target Variable] after searching.
- Can display the measurement result to console by each search.
- Can output the various measurement values by each search to CSV file.
- Can display the various measurement values by each search to console.
- Can display the various measurement values by each search executing at [Full Scan] with Waveform Viewer Tool (PCXT01-M7000).
- Can store the measured values and judgement results to the variable by interpose processing.
- Can execute another measure items before and after search.
- Can use two step search function. By searching with two resolution and search method, measurement time and search resolution can be optimized. It requires Two Step Search Plugin for Generic Search IP (PCXA01-M5006) to use two step search function.
