|The ESCape Upgrade transfers system control from
PROMs located on the old system control board to the host. |
A PCX Interface Card interfaces the tester to the PC-Host. A new, redesigned ESCape board replaces the Q2 Control Board.
ESCape may be used for all Q2/62, Q2/52, and Q8000 test systems.
|Significantly faster command and test program execution times.|
|Faster test program loading. For example, a 40K byte program loads within 1 second using ESCape, but takes 20 seconds without it.|
|System revisions are now made using revised software instead of dismantling the tester and updating PROMs.|
|With ESCape, the 40,000 (hex) location isn't wiped out when resetting the system; Remote lists will work after 32K; SKIPTO works across the 32K boundary; FPORTA & FPORTB function when looping on a test; The log command in a Summary Block called from a Ready Block problem is fixed.|
|Increased hardware reliability. The old control board has 75 ICs, but the new ESCape board has only 16.|
|One year warranty.|
|Usually available from stock.|
|Q2/52 LPP commands are approximately 10 times faster|
