QuadView: Next Generation Viewers
QuadView adds new dimension to PCB schematic & layout viewing

ASTER has introduced the QuadView next generation viewers to their product portfolio. QuadView is a powerful set of scalable board viewing modules that can be used either as a standalone viewer or fully integrated within customer's applications.

QuadView's unique digitization capability allows users to create schematic views directly from searchable PDF files, and the innovative 'Netlist Navigator' provides virtual schematic views reconstructed directly from a board netlist. Layout views can be created from industry standard formats such as, GENCAD, CAMCAD, FATF, ODB++, or directly from any native CAD layout data such as Cadence, Mentor, Zuken, etc. The fault ticket analyzer provides full interaction between component and net references in any type of paperless repair fault ticket, exported from test, repair or inspection systems.
  Key product benefits
  Ease of Use
Powerful, scalable visualization environment, consisting of schematic, netlist, layout and fault ticket viewing modules that can be used either standalone or integrated within customer's applications. No pre-processing of CAD data needed.

Automated schematic creation
Unique digitization capability that allows users to create a schematic view directly from a searchable PDF file. Interactive with layout and Netlist Navigator.
Netlist Navigator
Reconstruct "virtual schematics" directly from a netlist, to provide a visual netlist navigation capability that includes advanced nodal detail.

Layout from native CAD formats
Create layout view from standard CAD formats such as GENCAD, CAMCAD, FATF, ODB++, or direct from native CAD layout data.

Fault ticket hot-links
Anyone who can surf the WWW can learn to use QuadView. Navigate between component and net references that appear as highlighted hot-links within the paperless fault ticket.

Fully Interactive Cross-probing
Cross-probe between layout, schematic and netlist viewers, and other products within the ASTER portfolio such as TestWay and Quad .

Flexible color assignment
Visualize test coverage and component pin properties using the QuadView color assignment palette, to simplify analysis and fault class recognition.

Functional test editor
Declare functional test coverage on both component and pin level. Simplify functional test diagnosis with the "Sherlock" algorithm.

Short-circuit search assistant
Reduce the time to locate short-circuits by intelligently highlighting areas where solder bridges are most likely.

Legacy product support
Migration Kit provides full backwards compatibility with legacy products DebugPlus , RepairPlus and FaultView .
  QUAD: Board Repair Assistant & Quality Management System
  QUAD (QUality ADvisor) is a flexible modular Quality Management system built around a centralized and open architecture database, providing traceability for any PCB electronic production data. QUAD covers all quality aspects of PCB assembly, sub-assembly and system build, allowing you to manage the quality data flow from product realization to product retirement. It has been designed to be used either standalone or to be easily integrated into any existing production environment.

It offers a powerful support for PCB fault diagnosis and provides access to detailed information in real-time that can be presented clearly and precisely using advanced reporting. This allows users to analyze real-time information, in order to diagnose and resolve process problems at the earliest opportunity to improve yield, quality and productivity, which will ultimately result in lowering cost.

QUAD comprises of the following modules:

  • QuadRecorder module allows automatic access to all test and diagnostic results generated by ATE (ICT, FT, BST, FPT, AOI, AXI and other dedicated systems).
  • QuadStation module analyzes the data presented to the repair and diagnostic station, to allow the operator to quickly fix the detected fault and graphically input repair data into the QUAD database.
  • QuadReports module produces quality management information and reports in real time through intranet or internet.
  • QuadSetup module allows operations such as; user account management, system configuration, import of external data, export of database records and system monitoring with the aid of the automated dashboard feature.

Key product benefits

  Ease of use
Flexible modular software application that is easily integrated into an existing quality system organization, or used as a stand alone application.

Empower continuous quality improvement
By maintaining a history of all product defects, users can share their knowledge and experiences in resolving problems and participate in the continuous improvement in the quality of the product, thus maximizing customer satisfaction.

Based on Industry Standards
Interfaces with industry standard relational database environments, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, SAP MaxDB, Borland Interbase, Access... etc.

Maximize performance
A high level of performance is achieved by adopting innovative programming technology to optimize database access.

Paperless repair
Intuitive GUI provides hyperlinked interaction between fault ticket, schematic/layout viewers & defect advisor panel for ease of diagnosis and repair.

Clear and precise reporting
Quality management information and reports provided on demand, clearly and precisely using advanced reporting.

WEB reporting
XML compatible for web presentation of quality report and repair data, available anytime and anywhere via the internet.

Real-time process alarms
Real-time alarms to quickly identify process problems and immediately alert staff to allow quick and remedial action.

Product history and tracking
A complete history of the product manufacture and test process provides access to historical data to quickly identify problems that have occurred before.

Immediate cost savings
Increase revenue by improving team productivity by eliminating non-value added tasks, simplifying administrative procedures and automating the workflow.

Ease of maintenance
Networking contribution is minimized in order to allow ease of maintenance.
