Most Efficient and Flexible Family of Board Test System
“Massively parallel computation cores enable modern computers to deliver breakthrough performance. The i7090 board test system brings a similar capability into printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) manufacturing test and programming,” said Christopher Cain, vice president of Keysight Technologies Electronic Industrial Products. “The i7090 has an innovative modular architecture that delivers breakthrough throughput in a small footprint. It is infused with state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 automation and analytics to deliver unparalleled capability that can be optimized for a broad variety of high-volume PCBA manufacturing challenges.”
In-Circuit Board Tester for High-Quality PCBA Testing
The Keysight i7090 is a massively parallel board test system designed to help PCBA test engineers improve manufacturing efficiency while reducing costs. Unlike traditional in-circuit testers, the i7090 supports up to 20 In-Circuit Test cores in parallel, which means engineers can test multiple Units Under Test (UUTs) simultaneously without the need for multiple systems. This reduces scaling and infrastructure costs and frees up valuable testing space.
With its variable core configuration and Keysight OpenTAP support, the i7090 is a flexible and scalable system that can easily integrate with existing hardware. This allows users to expand the system's functionality and easily scale resources to meet manufacturing demands. The i7090's compact size and efficient design save valuable floor space, while its powerful features allow for faster, more efficient testing of PCBA products.
New i7090 Features and Benefits:
- Flexible scalability: 20 parallel cores simultaneously test multiple Units Under Test (UUTs).
- Small footprint: 600 mm width saves space and cycle time.
- High-volume support: Ideal for production testing with high to ultra-high volume support.
- Extended performance: Unpowered and vectorless test extended performance (nanoVTEP) for faster test throughput, lower cost fixtures, and higher fault coverage.
- Instrument integration: Keysight OpenTAP software and PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation (PXI) support for Keysight and 3rd party instruments on the same platform.
- Multi-platform support: Standard 48 cm rack for functional integration with multi-platform hardware.
- In-system programming: 160 channels in parallel for faster system throughput.
i7090 is infused with state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 automation and analytics to deliver unparalleled capability that can be optimized for a broad variety of high-volume PCB assembly manufacturing challenges.

Featured Article on EE Times Asia: High-Volume Manufacturing Testing for Low-Cost Boards: Navigating the Challenges
The growth of technology has led to an increased demand for low-cost electronics products and lots of them. Manufacturers must streamline manufacturing processes, reduce costs, and improve production times. As a result, the in-circuit testing process for these products must also adapt and keep up with these demands. Click here to read more about this article.

In the ever-changing PCBA industry, a conventional test system may not be sufficient these days as some of the challenges require a scalable approach to support different configurations. Watch these webinars and learn how you can benefit from the i7090 system, the world’s first massively parallel board test system.
Accelerate Higher Throughput In a Smaller Footprint
With the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoTs), smart devices, and electric vehicles, the printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) used is more sophisticated and packed with smaller components that are critical to the functionality of the device. However, the testing of these small boards is still dependent on test systems that were built for simple board-under-test from 20 years ago. This may mean sacrificing test coverage in the hope that end-of-line functional testing will be able to catch these critical failures.
This webinar covers the importance of testing smaller PCBAs with features and technologies similar to test systems used on bigger PCBAs in order to lower the cost of the test.
- Perform high-volume PCBA testing running in parallel
- Methods to increase PCBA test throughput without increasing cost
- Myths of lowering the cost of test on PCBA and how to achieve this in your manufacturing
