ValidATE Plus is electrically the same as the ValidATE System. The ergonomics are changed to best suit the requirements of combined in-circuit and functional test, when a bed-of-nails fixture is more appropriate. Together with the ability to thoroughly verify the functionality of digital, analog and mixed-mode circuitry, the ValidATE Plus can extend its application to power-off, structural and power-on in-circuit techniques. The system combines best-in class solutions for board testing to meet performance, capacity and fault location capabilities. The system takes advantage of all techniques to reduce test generation cost, without affecting fault coverage or throughput. Power-off structural tests, using both junction and capacitive techniques, are first used to isolate simple manufacturing faults. Power-on in-circuit tests, both analog and digital, including extensions to IEEE 1149 techniques, are then deployed through the non-multiplexed hybrid channels of the system. Where required, fast On Board Programming (OBP) operations can be performed. Finally, the full power of functional test can certify operation of the UUT.
