Abstract : This report describes the manufacturing technology that will enable detection, identification, and location of digital faults in advanced digital missile electronic systems. Emphasis is placed on the fault diagnosis of large printed circuit boards containing complex digital hybrid microelectronic circuits to be used in the 1980's. The identified technology provides the capability to isolate digital faults to the minimum size component level, using state-of-the-art automatic test equipment. The effort included an industry survey for digital printed circuit board test requirements and available test system capabilities, the development of digital fault isolation methodology, and the identification of the corresponding optimum available automatic test hardware. The subsequent contract option phase of this project involves the purchase, setup, and demonstration of the selected fault isolation hardware/software system, using the developed techniques.
