The LabVIEW™ Prober Interface was written by ABCDEF specifically for control of the Signatone probers. The Interface is compatible with National Instruments LabVIEW™ 6.0 and higher. DDE, GPIB and ActiveX versions are available. The DDE and ActiveX versions allow the computer controlling the prober to also perform test functions. Alternatively, a separate computer with a GPIB interface allows greater power dedicated to the test processing.
The LabVIEW™ Interface enables fast and easy integration between a LabVIEW™ diagnostic or manufacturing testing application and the positioning capabilities of the prober system. By combining these modules with computer-based or GPIB test equipment, an automatic test system can very quickly be assembled. Leverage the power of LabVIEW's instrument driver network to add a switch matrix, DMM, power-supply, signal source, parametric analyzer or a functional tester.
Using the power of LabVIEW™, any module that performs several tests on an individual die can be repeated across entire wafers with a very simple program. The prober interface includes functions to control the setup, wafer chuck, stage movement, microscope positioning, inker and program and template point sequencing. An example program to loop through a pre-loaded set of program points is included to get you started.
Functions provided by the Driver:
To purchase this driver call Signatone at (408) 848-2851 or ABCDEF at (800) 422-1523.
Drivers for some additional test equipment are available from National Instruments, the equipment's manufacturer, or a third party. LabVIEW is a registered trademark of National Instruments.
ABCDEF can provide consulting services to get your test system up and running quickly.
