Microprocessor testing without manufacturers patterns

If you are a user of off-the shelf microprocessors in the military, aerospace, industrial or automotive market, you know that suppliers often discontinue the higher temperature range devices well before the end products they were designed into are discontinued.

Thus when these parts are discontinued it is desirable to have commercial products up-screened or repackaged to assure a continued source of supply. However microprocessors are difficult to test and developing test software without assistance from OEM design files can be very costly.

Force is helping alleviate these development costs whilst still providing a comprehensive test program through the assistance of commercially available emulators to help with the test program development.
