Project Overview
   Problem statement
       Iowa State recently upgraded the Teradyne J750 with the MSO module to test
        analog and mixed-signal circuits.
       The existing digital cookbook must be upgraded to include mixed-signal testing.

   Problem solution
       The team will review the existing training materials related to mixed-signal testing.
       Test scenario and document support must be created for:
           One 10-bit and 12-bit ADC chip
           One 10-bit and 12-bit DAC chip
           One 10 MHz or greater op-amp chip

Closure materials - Commercialization

   Limiting factors
       Trained test engineers in industry
       Low speed
       Inflexible test procedures
       Cost inefficient for simple devices
       IG-XL code development and integration with existing test flow

   Possibility for the actual cookbook
       Educational/training material
       IG-XL customized code templates for a specific DUT

Closure materials - Additional work
   Converting traditional yearly projects into an ongoing project
   Additional sections for testing of various devices on the J750 tester
   Lab creation for the high-speed testing and RF classes at Iowa State University
   Improve upon existing IG-XL templates and test procedures

Closure materials - Lessons learned
   What technical knowledge was gained?
       Analysis of ADC, DAC and op-amp chip data sheets
       Testing methodology and approach
       IG-XL software to create test templates for the required DUT devices
       MSO implementation
       Teradyne Integra J750 usage

   What non-technical knowledge was gained?
       Communication skills
       Project documentation skills
       Importance of time management
       Vital negotiation skills

Closure Materials - Lessons Learned
   What went well?
       Initial training modules and lab tests
       Documentation of important materials
       Teradyne J750 tester components are intact
       No issues with part selection or purchase
       Completed initial test design
       Socket converter built for DUT devices

   What did not go well?
       Inefficient troubleshooting of IG-XL test instance code
       No present IG-XL op-amp template
       Hardware failure (computer motherboard had to be replaced)
       Lack of permissions to install vital software
       Licensing issues with the current IG-XL version due to failed motherboard
       Inconsistent temperature due a non-functional air conditioning unit

Closure Materials - Risk management
   Risk: Injury to a team member
      Management: Rest of team members focused on more documentation
   Risk: Computer hardware failure during testing and development of IG-XL templates
      Management: Shifted focus of the project to documentation and the actual creation of the
       cookbook which could be achieved without the J750 tester
   Risk: Problems with proprietary software (IG-XL licensing issues)
      Management: Worked with Teradyne and CSG to get a new license file installed and all
       instances of the IG-XL program to be fully functional
   Risk: Inaccurate results from ADC testing
      Management: Limit digital noise, proper grounding with bypass capacitors on inputs
   Risk: Op-amp instability
      Management: Reduction of the resistance value in the resistor, capacitance (RC) setup
   Risk: Parts malfunction
      Management: Meticulous care in ESD procedures (using ESD bands)
   Risk: Facing possible learning and understanding difficulties
