  • JTAG testing operators - JMAN and OFS modules;
  • Repair technician staff after JTAG and ICT testing - TFL and OFS modules.


The software uses the following source files listed below:


  • Layout design CAD files in formats:
    • FABMASTER files in FAZ, FAT formats;
    • GENCAD;
    • ODB++ files archived to ZIP, TGZ;
    • BOARD, BOARD_XY files of Keysight (Agilent) 3070 archived to ZIP.
  • Schematic design files in PDF format;
  • BOM files in CSV format;
  • JTAG Test sequence files SQC, TSP (for JMAN module only).


The Features:


  • Creating a project based on source files (Figures 1-3);

  •    Figure 1. New Project creation menu.

    .Final tests at Marvell Israel Ltd
    שמי רן, עובד בחברת מארוול ומשתמש בתוכנה מזה כשנה. התוכנה ידידותית למשתמש ומקלה מאוד את תהליך איתור התקלות המתגלות בבדיקות. ריכוז כל המידע הנדרש (סכימות, בום, מיקום פיזי של רכיבים וכו') חוסך זמן יקר בעת איתור ותיקון תקלות. חשוב לציין את התמיכה הרחבה אותה אני מקבל מלאוניד במגוון נושאים הקשורים לבדיקות בעזרת התוכנה ולא רק בנושאים הקשורים לתוכנה.

    My name is Ran, working at Marvel and use the software for the last year. The user-friendly software makes revealing of the tests troubleshooting very easy to process. Concentration of required information (schemes, BOM, the physical location of components etc.) saves valuable time for problems search and fixing. It is important to note the broad support that I receive from Leonid by variety of topics related to testing using the software, and not only software-related issues.

    אלביט מערכות יבשה ותקשוב תדיראן בעמ.
    עבדתי על תיקוני מעגלי MODEM ובהחלט התוכנה עזרה לי בתיקון הכרטיסים.
    התוכנה יעילה ומציגה את הקווים שנופלים בצורה ברורה וקלה לאיבחון.

    I worked to repair of MODEM boards and the software definitely helped me to do it.
    The software is effective and displays the failed lines in a clear and easy form to diagnostic.
