RPS3000 increases Productivity and Reliability for Inline Onboard Programming Systems

At the electronica 2012 trade show GOEPEL announced the market introduction of new RAPIDO™ series inline production systems for high-speed programming as well as board test based on the newest Embedded System Access (ESA) technologies. The new models named RPS3000-(x) support double-sided probing for up to 3000 nails. RAPIDO RPS900Non-volatile memories such as Flash, Microcontrollers (MCU) and Programmable Logic Devices (PLD) can be on-board programmed even faster and more reliably. Based on an enhanced SCANFLEX® architecture with Short Wire Interface for up to 32 sites, it is now possible to combine programming tasks with test strategies such as Boundary Scan, Processor Emulation, Chip Embedded Instruments or Functional Test. In conjunction with the patented handling mechanics the scalable overall system merges the benefits of a highly flexible programming capability with the highest throughput. Hence, utilizing RAPIDO results in a significant reduction of storage costs and total production costs.

The sales success in industry segments like automotive or industrial electronics since the product introduction six months ago impressively proves the market acceptance of our RAPIDO concept“, says Thomas Wenzel, Managing Director of the JTAG/Boundary Scan Division. “The new models are the goal-oriented extension of our inline product series, now supporting combined test and programming strategies for all Embedded System Access technologies. In addition to an increase in synergy between lab and production, this provides the means to meet the requirements of an even higher inline throughput."
