Product Description

Prepared by Dong (Hudson) An, Mixed-Signal Collaboratory Engineer, CMC Microsystems.


The IG-XL® program is a software environment developed by Teradyne Inc. It is the user programming interface for the FLEX test family (including FLEX, microFLEX and UltraFLEX). This test program is constructed based on the Microsoft Excel program, together with Visual Basic for Test (VBT). You will need to use this software environment in order to define the test flow and specify the I/O parameters for a test operation.


This document provides a fundamental introduction to IG-XL, and is suitable for users both with and without any previous IG-XL experience. Before you read this document, you should have already read the user document Introduction to the Teradyne FLEX Test System, and have a fairly good understanding of the general test capabilities of the FLEX tester. If you are convinced that the FLEX tester is appropriate for your test, you may proceed to compose your first IG-XL program using this document as a reference.
