Scan Executive Scripting Language (SSL)
The Scan Executive Manufacturing Test Station supports a scripting language that enables the creation of customized test flows. Flows developed using SSL provide test engineers a high productivity manufacturing test environment. SSL scripts direct operator actions, control test hardware and apply SVF data to a UUT without the need for C++ programming.
Simple to write SSL Scripts
SSL is interpreted, not case sensitive and uses C++ style comments all of which simplifies program and flow development. SSL supports conditional statements and can call routines from the Eclipse Scripting Language. SSL has built-in functions that can set voltages and frequencies on Intellitech's Test Hardware. SSL scripts run on either Windows or UNIX hardware platforms.
SSL Improves Operator Productivity
SSL provides commands that be used to perform 'housekeeping' activities before and after production test. A single SSL command can simplify test application for an operator by loading patterns, initializing GPIB equipment, recording test conditions such as temperature, lot information, etc. Similarly at the conclusion of a test suite, a single SLL command can be executed to 'unload memory, instruct the operator to set equipment to a certain state; remove failing PCBs to the repair depot, etc.
SSL features include:
- Fast Interpreted language
- User defined variables
- User defined input dialog box
- While loop constructs
- IF branching on Pass or Fail
- IF branching on user defined variables
- Application of multiple SVFs (or Macros) and CTFs
- Execution of BSID Diagnostics
- Control of Discrete I/O
- Control of TAP voltage/frequency
