CRANE-83173
Automatic test stations, such as CASS, are used to test electronic circuitry found in many different devices. The CASS test station is equipped with an instrument called the DTU (Digital Test Unit), which tests digital circuitry. While the CASS uses ATLAS, the DTU has its own unique language called L200. The standard method to generate a complete L200 test job for CASS using LASAR output is cumbersome, unwieldy, and is a path fraught with error.

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane), has developed and patented a method to streamline circuit simulation output into data for an automated circuit testing program of a circuit testing device. This method will significantly increase the efficiency of converting output of circuit simulation data, generate readable test vectors, and enhance mismatch scoring algorithms. In addition, this method can produce wire path files for analysis.

Advantages:
-Increases efficiency of converting data
-Improves proficiency of data generated
-Enhances mismatch scoring algorithms

Potential applications:
-Avionics
