The Workstation Software Development Kit enables Custom Integrations of Hardware. Firstly, by using in house programming or integration services, the Software Development Kit allows the creation of custom software systems. It also allows existing programs to be modified to control Huntron hardware. All DLLs needed to control the hardware and sample applications in VB.NET. are available in the Development Kit. This means you can include other Huntron Hardware such as Trackers and Prober Cameras and add them into your test sequence.
Example of Custom Integrations of Hardware
A customer required a system that needed to place a specialised hybrid component into a custom test fixture for a long term result. Firstly, the components are picked up by the Prober Z Axis Head using a custom suction system. They are then placed into a bed of nails type fixture that requires significant downward pressure. A long term stress test is then carried out for several hours. Suction is routed through a tube placed into the cable bundle of the Prober.
The Z Axis Drive is designed to handle heavier loads with an increased down force. The lead screw system achieved this goal. Control of the system used a custom software application developed by the customer using the Huntron Hardware Software Development Kit.
