Applying the Actor Framework in a test and diagnosis software of printed circuit board assemblies

Porting of a funcional test program to labVIEW and the Actor Framework of concurrent computing. Also, a review on test and diagnosis in printed circuit board assemblies.


This work reports the development process of a functional test sofware for fail detection and validation of assembled circuit boards on their productive process and in field returns. The requirements in flexibility and modularity led to the choice of the actor framework, the Labview implementation of the Actor Model of concurrent computing. Actor classes were developed for each field of competence: multimeter interface, device under test communication, RF power test, test log generator, and execution control. Enhancements in ergonomics were considered during the development process, and prior tests runs of the routines indicated improvements in the test execution time and process automation.
