Aegis TestXcell Software Offers Enhanced DFM Capabilities

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Aegis Industrial Software Corporation, the leader in Manufacturing Information Management Systems is pleased to announce that their powerful TestXcell software specifically developed to provide streamlined Design for Testability (DFT) capabilities, has been expanded to cover many Design for Manufacturability (DFM) checks.

This provides added value for all customers within one program. It is ideal for customers who do not own a DFM application, yet still need the benefits derived from additional checks when preparing test strategies. This natural extension of TestXcell’s capabilities make this software program an even more valuable tool for manufacturers.

TestXcell provides offline programming support for FPT and ICT equipment, ICT fixture design, fixture cost estimating, cross-referenced schematic viewing, test engineering diagnostic tools, and a pre-defined electrical model database. Users now also benefit from integral board, component, pad size and clearance checks, feature checks for tooling holes, solder resist, vias and fiducials as well as many other manufacturability checks. Plus, TestXcell produces a comprehensive electronic report for all DFM checks, streamlining communication issues across all "need-to-know" personnel.

Robert Miklosey, Aegis VP of Product Management commented, "We are dedicated to the continual expansion of TestXcell’s functionality as part of our promise of total ongoing customer support. The addition of DFM support gives our customers greater value within the application as well as higher assurance that their products are production-ready before assembly begins."
