The Pilot M4 is the solution for those who seek the highest flexibility from a flying probe tester, from production test to repair, all the way to reverse engineering.
The Pilot M4 has a vertical architecture and two flying probes on each side, two additional Openfix probes and two cameras (one on each side respectively).
This configuration allows the Pilot M4 to perform true in-circuit tests, giving full access even to boards that do not have all the test points on one side and the capability to place guarding points, as well as the use of all the vectorless test techniques for ICs, with or without powering up the UUT.
With probes and cameras on both sides of the UUT, the Pilot M4 is ideal for rebuilding the board net list. The system can acquire images of components, pads and test point coordinates, to enable the complete reverse engineering and rebuilding the electrical schematics or even the CAD data of a product, which has no design documentation.
The possibility to equip the Pilot M4 with two thermal probes (one for each side of the UUT) also enables the fully automated check of the component temperature, through the Thermal Scan function, and the complete thermal scan of the UUT, guaranteeing an unmatched tool to detect faults on boards coming from repair lots.
