The SPARROW MTS30 is a portable rack System that, with a size of 19'' fits into any univerasl rack.
The compact and flexible test System offers the possibility to run both analog and digital tests. Additionally, the SPARROW can also accommodate 4 programmable power supplies.
With the available In-Circuit and Functional Test Modules most of the required testing tasks can be resolved in a simple and cost-effective manner.
The system configuration is the same as other Digitaltest systems with a parallel system bus structure that connects the analogue and digital test modules with a centralised processing module.
The SPARROW has the same hardware modules such as SIGMA,so that the same test depth and fault coverage can be achieved. All existing test programs can also be used for the SPARROW.
Despite its small footprint, the SPARROW with 8 slots can take up to 1024 analogue test pins or 512 digital hybrid pins or a mix of both types. Furthermore carrier boards for Memory Programming, User controlled Relay modules, Pullup/Pulldown modules, Frequency/Time Measuring modules etc. are also available.
The integration with an existing software environment e.g. Labview from National Instruments can be easily realised using an open communication interface.
The SPARROW is also available in a 19'' Test Tower with a pylon interface at customer request.
All the currently available software tools from Digitaltest can be used with the SPARROW, using C-LINK DTM for example it is a simple matter to convert available CAD data for test program generation.
Programs from other customer test systems like GenRad, Teradyne, HP, Marconi as well as other MTS test systems can be easily ported to the MTS 30. Compared to self-designed test tools, the SPARROW can also be integrated into cross-linked management systems.
