Test system software

CITE is the system software for all of our test systems - Quickly and Easily generate, debug and test programs!

  • Reduces test program generation effort
  • Shortens introduction time to market for new products (NPI)
  • Automatic generating and debugging of test programs
  • GenFast enables test program generation without requiring programming knowledge
  • Programmable in Visual Studio (VB 6 / VB .NET)
  • Highly user friendly, e.g. drag and drop
  • Generates a test program from the board description using Automatic Program Generator (APG)
  • Simple generation and managing of board assembly variations
  • Multi-language

CITE (Computer Integrated Test Environment) is the software platform for all Digitaltest test systems. It is a real-time system offering a vast number of tools to ensure high test quality and shortening testing time. The software also provides you with several different programming languages that you can choose from.

With this software you can use any of the following programming languages to generate and debug test programs quickly and simply:

  • GenFast- easy to use, table-based GUI that requires no previous programming experience
  • Visual Studio VB.NET- new generation language, which is based on object-oriented programming, that not only has built in libraries, but can support shared development
  • Visual Basic VB 6.0- is a simple, widely used programming language which has a fixed amount of runtime libraries

Test Program Generation

  • Create your test program instantly with Automatic Program Generation (APG) Wizard from the assembly description in five simple steps. The user can check individually choose his settings for the following items:

1)    Test program information
2)    Set Failure Flags
3)    Choose your tools
4)    Decide on a Template
5)    Generating Settings

  • Choose your preferred Programming Language: Visual Basic 6.0, Visual Studio .NET) or easy to use, no need for programming skills: GenFast
  • Existing Test programs can be easily converted to Digitaltest test systems 
  • Impeccable traceability by keeping record of all test results in MDL, Data Log and Dump Files
  • Provides a Library for analog and digital In-Circuit tests
  • Clever board variant/version handling - one test program can handle different variants


Test Program Debugging

  • Automatically debug your test program with the Debug Robot:
  • Automatically debugs and stabilizes test programs
  • Flexibly configurable template
  • Automatic guarding
  • Automatically learns non-debuggable tests
  • Corrects incorrect polarities of diodes and transistors
  • Debug window for displaying measurement results with different views available
  • If command parameters are changed it is directly updated in the test statement
  • Simplified debugging with layout/schematic diagram viewer (optional) and highlighting of defective components


GenFast - Easy Programming

  • Programming without knowledge of a programming language
  • Multi-edit more than one statement at the same time
  • Drag and Drop commands
  • Automatic Test Program Backup of any changes with date and time stamp
  • Statistical evaluation of all analog In-Circuit test




Selftest - Diagnosis of Test System Hardware

  • Checks the hardware and localizes defective modules
  • Diagnostics on the relay level, any faults will be identified in the Layout Viewer
  • Current self-test can be retrieved from the Customer Portal





Backup and Restore Center

  • Saves and packs a backup of the test program including Board directory, test program and C-LINK test job archive
  • User can directly send out back up files for easy online support, if needed

Debug Robot – Automatic Test Program Debugging

  • Automatically debugs and stabilizes test programs
  • Powerful friendly configuration
  • Flexibly configurable template
  • Automatic guarding
  • Automatically learns non-debuggable Tests
  • Corrects incorrect polarities of diodes and Transistors




Test Stability Report QCAMPro

  • Evaluation of all measurement values (MDL data)
  • Provides test program quality and stability Reports
  • Enables simple and efficient debugging
  • Shows the evaluation of average, standard deviation and CmK (machine capability) ~ CpK (process capability index)




Test Coverage Report

  • Evaluates the quality by checking the test coverage of the program
  • Results available in table form or optionally as a graphic display in the schematic diagram viewer





FailSim - Test Programming

  • Graphical User Interface (GUI) to help verify the test program debugging automatically
  • FailSim module needs to be integrated in the system





Multi Template - Multiple Interfaces of Tests Program

  • User can have more than one template 
  • Scalable User Interface handling of barcodes, variants based on the requirementson time






Free Integration of Third Parties Devices

  • Can simply communicate with any third-party testing devices such as IEEE, Programmers etc.
  • DLL files can be integrated easily





Customize Actions

  • User can choose computer actions to be taken automatically
  • Coupling events with customer custom action








Board Panel Support

  • Select which board in the panel to be tested
  • Graphical User Interface identifying pass, fail, not tested for each pcb on the panel
