2 © Copyright EADS TEST & SERVICES 2006 Signal Capture Generating 1641 Signals from a Product Acceptance Specification (PAS) Translation from the PAS to 1641 signals is reasonably straightforward –This is because PAS is written in terms of UUT –Extraction is a manual process E.g.: Monitor SK2-F with respect to 0V at SK2-s and verify that the voltage is +5.0V +/-0.2V Translates into: PAS 1641 Signals

Extracting any large amounts of information manually is very laborious and, thus, prone to error. Irregular structure and ATE specifics mean that automatic extraction of signals is not possible –Without standardised extraction, the test program is being virtually re-written and must go through acceptance.

13 © Copyright EADS TEST & SERVICES 2006 Where Were Up To IEEE Std Signal & Test Definition –Signal-based test definition standard. –Requirement of MoD ATS Procurement Policy. –Utilised in areas of IEEE P1671 ATML. IEEE 1641 implementation studies: –Phase 1 - Analogue signals/3 test platforms - Racal Instruments. –Phase 2 - Complex RF and a Synthetic Test Platform – Aeroflex. –Phase 3 - Digital signals/ test platforms - under negotiation. –Phase 4 – Parallel development; comparison of traditional vs

14 © Copyright EADS TEST & SERVICES 2006 Conclusions IEEE Std has been shown to be capable of defining: –Portable analogue signals, –Typical RF parametric tests. Significant effort required to extract the information required to define a 1641 (platform independent) test, from an existing, non-standard or proprietary, test architecture. Though not a unique approach, 1641 represents a departure from many existing test methodologies. –Training would address many issues. No significant differences observed (existing vs. 1641) for: –Test results. –Speed of execution.
