Spectrum 8862/TSSE

Teradyne’s Spectrum 8862 (TSSE) is a unique combinational in-circuit (ICT)/ functional test system that can lower overall costs and test times for manufacturers that prefer to combine functional and ICT test capabilities on a single system. Spectrum test systems provide electronics manufacturers with reliable high-quality performance test and product validation.

Spectrum 8862 is configurable up to 2,560 non-multiplexed in-circuit channels. This system has 20 extended VXI card slots for adding hybrid digital/analog cards (CC2s) or for integrating C-sized VXI instruments.

  • Applications

    Spectrum 8862 provides full performance test and product validations for use in Automotive, Industrial, and Defense and Aerospace system level test:

    • Testing of mixed signal devices such as Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC), and Coder-Decoders (CODEC)
    • Digital vector testing for Small Scale Integration (SSI), Large Scale Integration (LSI), Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI), including Transistor-Transistor Logic (TTL), 3V, Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) and Emitter-Coupled Logic (ECL) logic levels
    • VXI instrumentation support
  • Advantages

    Spectrum 8862 is a unique combinational in-circuit/functional test system that can lower overall costs and test times for manufacturers that prefer to combine functional and ICT capabilities on a single system. 

    Manufacturers can eliminate the need to purchase additional in-circuit or functional test equipment by purchasing a single Spectrum 8862 that combines both test technologies, using single programs, fixtures, and operators.
