Abstract : The advent of digital VLSI circuit design is causing both the capabilities and technology of Army digital prime equipment to rapidly advance. Thus, the testing requirements of this equipment are becoming more complex than they have been in the past. Higher clock and data rates are particular testing requirements that presenting testing difficulties for existing Army digital testers. The objective of this study is to forecast the impact of this future technology on the TMDE equipment testing requirements for the 1988-1991 time frame. This forecast is based in part on the analysis performed in a previous report entitled Army Digital Test Requirements Analytic Report . It is anticipated that this forecast will assist the Army in providing needed timely digital ATE support for the Army prime equipment fielded in the 1988-1991 time frame. In addition to the forecast, this report provides specific recommendations concerning stimulus/measurement requirements and test program development techniques to support future Army prime equipment.
