Customer References and Testimonials

Datalogic

Datalogic ADC, formerly PSC, in Eugene, Oregon, develops Automatic Data Capture equipment such as barcode scanners and imagers, as well as a wide range of related products.

Karl Radestam, Staff Electrical Engineer at Datalogic ADC, comments:

   Our PCB departments, located throughout the world, require high volume test equipment with excellent test coverage to keep up with the customer’s needs. To accomplish this, we have teamed up with GOEPEL Electronics since 2005 to develop boundary-scan tests for PCB pogo pin fixtures.
   Datalogic PCB design guidelines include all the necessary test points for JTAG access and full test coverage to all connector pins. We use GOEPEL's SYSTEM CASCON tool to develop boundary-scan test routines, such as Interconnect, Cluster, Manual, Flash, RAM, FPGA, and On-Chip Flash programming / processor emulation test. For devices that require extra coverage, we ask GOEPEL engineers to extend the processor emulation test models or other routines. Using the test point guidelines, and working with GOEPEL engineers on the boundary-scan tests in advance, gives us excellent test coverage that can often be completed within a month. Also, GOEPEL has excellent field representatives throughout the world to help with diagnosis, RMA repair, and exchange.
   I highly recommend GOEPEL for all your PCB test requirements.

Herbert Schoepfer, Siemens AG:

   Since 1996, we have worked in close cooperation with GOEPEL electronic and have chosen to use Boundary Scan technology for our products, and today we continue to develop this as a fixed component of our innovative production and test strategy. Boundary Scan has developed into a fixed constant for our products, and it is unthinkable to not use it anymore. Through this we have come to see GOEPEL electronic as a flexible, capable and very cooperative partner, who commits to their customer requirements.

Peter-Arnoud van Gink, Siemens PTD EA:

   We have been using GOEPEL electronic’s CASON Boundary Scan software in ICT machines for testing and programming CPU boards since 2006. In addition to the comprehensive model library, the CASON integration into our applications via the DLL interface was critical

Mario Nemetschka, Siemens AG:

   We have been utilizing CASCON since Version 3.1, and have always been very satisfied. The constant improvements within the software have resulted in highly efficient generation of Boundary Scan applications. We are utilizing the Boundary Scan technology for serial tests of PC systems used in signal box technique and vehicle control. From our point of view, the hardware and software support is excellent. User group meeting such as Boundary Scan Days make the overall picture of GOEPEL electronic perfect. We are looking forward to an ongoing successful partnership.

Michael Ohler, Siemens AG:

   The Automated Optical Inspection with OptiCon, a system from GÖPEL electronic, is ideal for process inspection in the SMD placement. The system is used in the EWK of PCBs with high mounting density, a large number of placement positions of small components and many other IC types. We have been inspecting the presence, position, polarity, value and labelling for a long time now.
