Fluke 9010A Micro-System Troubleshooter
The Fluke 9010A Micro-System Troubleshooter is a self-contained programmable unit designed to locate faults in microprocessor-based systems. The 9010A includes built-in pre-programmed test routines for checking the entire microprocessor kernel including the bus, RAM, ROM, and I/O. The 9010A comes with a troubleshooting probe that can be used to either monitor logic action on a node-by-node basis or to inject stimulus pulses. The 9010A uses microprocessor-specific interface pods to interface to the suspect circuit board. Over 50 different pods are available supporting an extnesive list of microprocessors. The interface pods have extensive protection and self test features ensuring confidence in troubleshooting and testing circuit boards. Each pod contains its own microprocessor, RAM, ROM, and I/O memory space permitting it to test non-functional boards. The 9010A has a mini-cassette for storing and reading programs and memory maps from the unit under test.
This is designed to troubleshoot and test microprocessor based systems with test routines for locating faults related to the microprocessor bus (RAM, ROM, I/O).
One of the benefits of using the 9010A, is that you can create scripting test suites. All Fluke 9010A Troubleshooters have a microcassette tape system. However, this requires that you manually key in programs -- a long and error-prone process.
