5DX and Microsoft Windows® Conventions
The 5DX operates a group of programs that utilize the
Windows environment. To make a smooth transition for
our existing installed base, we have tried to preserve as
much of the look and feel of the original 5DX as is
reasonable while adhering to Windows conventions.
Some utilities, such as Review Measurements,
CADLink, and several others continue to run the DOS
programs, and retain the same conventions as on the
original 5DX. In any case, many of the resulting
Keyboard shortcuts select items in the current
menu. Press the key corresponding to the letter

The 5DX System
Controller
The 5DX System Controller is a multiple processor
computer assembly. The system controller provides all
system control, image processing and user interface
tasks. The majority of the 5DX controller operations are
fully automated and not directly accessed by system
users.
Master Contents
Glossary
Master Index
Table of Contents
The CD-ROM and 3.5 inch high-density flexible disk
drives are accessible on the front panel of the system
controller assembly. The 5DX system controller
assembly is located at the top of the 5DX Electronics
Cabinet (Figure 3-10).
For the user, the 5DX System Controller provides the
user interface to the 5DX operation and data handling
operations. You access the controller using:
■
■
■
■
■
■
a keyboard
a monitor
a mouse
flexible disk drives
a CD-ROM drive
tape backup media
You should regularly use the tape backup in case the
5DX hard disk drive fails. For more information on tape
backup, see the manufacturer’s manuals that shipped
with the 5DX and the Backup Strategy chapter of the
5DX System Administration Guide.
From the System Controller, either the CD-ROM or the
flexible disk drive is used to install software updates.
Additionally, you can use the flexible disk drive for
other file transfer tasks. The most common file transfer
task is installing or copying neutral data files (NDFs).
The NDFs are the description files for the panel
program.

User Interface
Access
This section presents some of the commonly used 5DX
operations as well as those required for routine panel
program test operations. Not all options are available to
all users; access depends on the access privilege
configured for each user level.
The 5DX has three levels of user access:
■
Automatic Test Mode
■
Configurable User Interface
■
Supervisor User Interface
For these levels, the access privilege is set with
registration of users and a supervisor password to
prevent unauthorized access to inappropriate 5DX
functions. For information on the registration of users,
see the 5DX User Registration in Chapter 4,
Managing Users of the 5DX System Administration
Guide.
Automatic Test Mode
While in Automatic Test Mode, only test operations are
available. In automatic test mode, you can enter serial
numbers for the boards to be tested and load the panels.
The 5DX can be configured so that serial numbers are
the only entry required.

Configurable User Interface
The system administrator, through the Supervisor User
Interface, is able to generate a Configurable 5DX User
Interface menu that is suitable for an intermediate user
or technician. The Configurable User Interface menu
can provide any level of access, from virtually full
Supervisor User Interface access, to no options at all.
For this reason, careful thought should be given to the
levels of access made available to the Configurable User
Interface user. For information on the setup of this user
level, see the Configurable User Interface in Chapter
4, Managing Users of the 5DX System Administration
Guide.
Supervisor User Interface
The Supervisor User Interface menu options include the
entire range of operations, utilities and diagnostics
available on the 5DX.
ADVICE
Always logout from the 5DX User Interface using
the System Access menu when the 5DX is
unattended. This helps to prevent unintended
access to 5DX configuration and system set-up.

NOTE
Loading and
Removing a Panel
To test a panel of one or more boards, first load the
panel into the system. Loading the panel involves
loading both the physical panel and the corresponding
panel program in the system controller.
Loading a Physical Panel
If you have a 5DX with a loader, place the physical
panel onto the loader assembly conveyors and allow the
conveyors to pull the panel into the loader.
If you have a loaderless 5DX, load the physical panel
directly onto the stage assembly conveyors. The
conveyors then move the panel into position, as
indicated by the board-in-place sensor. Once the board
reaches this sensor, the outer barrier can close
Trailing Edge Detection
You can configure your 5DX for Trailing Edge mode.
With this mode activated, the outer barrier closes after
the trailing edge of the board has passed the optical
sensor, before it reaches the panel-in-place sensor. Some
time is saved since the X-ray tube inner barrier can
begin opening while the panel is still moving into the
stage.
© Agilent Technologies 2001
5DX User Guide
Trailing Edge Detection is available only for
systems without loaders.
NOTE
Make sure there are no cutouts on the trailing edge
of the Board that may cause the optical sensor to
give a false reading.
Configuring a Loaderless 5DX for Trailing Edge Mode
Trailing edge mode is available only for 5DX systems
without loaders.
1 Open the current panel’s PANEL.NDF file for
editing.
2 Set the token
.PANEL_LOAD_TRAILING_EDGE_DETECT
to TRUE.
3 Save the PANEL.NDF file.
4 Recompile the PANEL.NDF file.

Align and Map
Each time you load a physical panel and a panel program,
you are loading one or more boards that have been
aligned to specific known coordinates in the X-axis,
Y-axis, and Z-axis. The process for aligning the X- and
Y-axis is called an alignment. The process for aligning
the Z-axis is called a surface map.
The Align and Map menu option activates a combined
automatic alignment and automatic surface map in one
operation. The setup for alignment and surface mapping
is done as a part of the panel programming process.

ADVICE
If you have a panel with alignment difficulties
which cannot easily be corrected by choosing new
alignment points, configure the system to use
Alignment Recovery Mode. This option allows for
an assisted recovery after a failed alignment.

The recommended nominal board temperature is as close
to ambient room temperature as possible, but no more
than ±10% of nominal temperature inside the 5DX.
Excessive temperature change during a test results in the
panel flexing, thus invalidating the surface map. The
larger the temperature change, the greater the error or
defocus due to shifting panel position.

port from the load. A pass-back configuration (single
load port) will pass the panel out the same port that it
entered.
Home Rails
Resets the position of all width adjust elements (input and
output load ports and the axis width). This initialization
requires that all panels be removed from the 5DX before
the home sequence.

Board Test and
Viewing Options
A user with Automatic Test Mode level access has the
automatic mode of operation only; the only action
required is entering serial numbers and loading panels.
The 5DX provides a variety of test options at the
Supervisor User Interface level. The automatic mode
provides a simple means of testing an entire panel
program with no user intervention, while additional
specialized test modes aid in the panel programming
process.
Test Menu
The 5DX includes a variety of specialized test modes to
handle fully automated testing and the specialized needs
of panel programming. With these specialized modes,
the test sequence can be temporarily customized for
limited data extraction and diagnostic purposes. The
primary differences in the specialized modes is the
extent of the test sequence.
All test modes assume the correct panel program data is
loaded (default panel), or coded to the serial number. All
of the test modes share basic test capabilities and
features. Test capabilities include the reporting of data
and defects with Review Defects and Review
Measurements. Test setup help is available as Setup
Text and Graphics and Algorithm DIAG Measurements,
as Figure 3-12 shows.

a Select Utilities > Load Panel Program.
b Select the correct panel from the list box.
2 Load the panel into the 5DX. See Loading and

Automatic
The most automated mode of test is the Automatic
selection. Automatic test is the same as Automatic Test
Mode. The Automatic mode unloads any panel currently
in the 5DX, loads the new panel, then aligns, surface
maps and tests the boards on the panel.
1 Select Test > Automatic.
2 Enter the serial numbers as requested in the test
window. The serial number can be entered via
keyboard, or by optional bar code reader.
3 When the serial number is coded to automatically
select the panel program, the panel can be placed in
the loader port and the board test begins. For
information on coding serial number formats to panel
program names, see the 5DX Reference Guide.
If you are trying to load a board in Automatic test mode
and the rails do not go to the correct width, check that the
correct panel program is loaded.
The problem might be that the Serial Numbers to Load
Panel Programs are not set up properly. Check that the
wildcards are not too general. For example, a “*” as the
only entry for the serial number match will result in the
associated panel program data always loaded for any
serial number entry.

When the alignment and surface map operations are
complete, the board test proceeds without further
intervention. During board test the window appearance is
similar to that shown in the second figure on the left.
Upon completion of automatic test operations, the board

Test Development Workstation Image Capture
In order to obtain maximum utilization of the 5DX as an
automated test and measurement tool, it is useful to take
panel programming tasks off the 5DX to the greatest
extent possible. The optional 5DX Test Development
Workstation can simulate most 5DX operations on a
series of captured images, making the 5DX available to
test production boards.
© Agilent Technologies 2001
5DX User Guide
This option allows the capture of one or more views for
use on the 5DX Test Development Workstation. The
workstation images can be captured simulating any of
the normal test modes:
■
■
Automatic Test capture: Loads the panel, aligns,
surface maps, then captures images for the entire
panel.
Panel Test capture: Aligns, surface maps, then
capture images for the entire panel for a panel
currently loaded in the 5DX.

5 If the current compiled version of panel program NDF and
RTF files have not been checked-in to the panel program
database, the system requests panel program check-in to the
Agilent 5DX CAD Database.
This is how the system ensures that valid panel
program data is associated with the saved
image sequence. Press Y or Enter to save the
current panel program.
a Prior to check-in to the 5DX CAD Database, the system
requests a description for the new or updated panel
program. Press any key to enter a description for this
CAD, then press Enter.
The system creates a file using the Text Editor
by the name of CADDESC.DAT. This file is used
to store any relevant information about the
collected panel program data, and is included
with the saved NDF and RTF files.
b If the panel program check-in fails, the panel program
data must be compiled before the archival version can be
created. Compile the NDFs, then begin the Collect
Images operation again
c When the error message does not appear, enter a
description for the panel program. When the description
is entered into the editor, press Alt+W to write the file and
Alt+X to exit the editor. The check-in message shown
displays to indicate panel program check-in progress.
At completion of panel program check-in, the
version number is reported by the message box.
Detailed information on the CAD Database
can be found in the Chapter 8, 5DX CAD
Database in in the 5DX Reference Guide.
6 When panel program check-in is confirmed or completed,
the test run requested begins. Serial numbers, components,
pins, joint types or subtypes are requested as in the normal
test modes as described under the options for Test Menu in
chapter 2, 5DX User Interface in the 5DX Reference Guide.
Provide the appropriate entries as requested by the 5DX.

Diagnostic Images
The 5DX can save a sequence of one or more slice
images from a single test view. A view is defined as a
single X-Y Stage location from a test sequence and the
slice image from each Z-axis position at the view X-Y
location. The images are saved with panel program data
and are useful as archival examples or can be sent to
Agilent 5DX online support for assistance with unique
test issues.

in a view required to trigger image capture. Setting
this value to 1 results in a captured image for any view
with a defect. Setting this value to 2 only captures an
image if 2 or more defects are found in the view, and
so forth. The remaining variables are normally left at
the default.
Do not change the resPath variable once set for the
correct repair station path. This option allows the PLR
image files to be sent to a location different from the
other results files defined by the RESROOT system
variable. The example shows this option commented
out with the “;”.

TIFF Image Format Capture
Print Image View Window
This option saves the current Image Window display as
a TIFF format file. TIFF is Tagged Image Format File,
and is supported for input by most word processing
software.
A user can send a copy of the image view window to the
default printer by choosing Print under the File menu
above the toolbar buttons or by selecting the print
toolbar button. The keyboard strokes for this function
are Ctrl+P.
The TIFF image includes the grayscale image, plus all
color graphics currently displayed (the Image Window
is not a part of the image).
To use this function:
1 Select Save TIFF Image using the Tab key, then press
Enter.
• The printout will always be one page per image no
matter what size window is open.
• The print image could appear to be darker than the
screen image due to printer darkness settings.
• Board graphics will usually turn out better printed on
a color printer.
2 The 5DX requests a file name. Enter the full file
specification, including drive and path information
for the resulting file, then press Enter.
ADVICE
Be sure to write TIFF files to a flexible disk drive,
network workstation, or remove them from the
system periodically. Each image is approximately
256,000 to 1,024,000 bytes, depending on view
resolution. Excessive numbers of saved image
files may reduce system performance.
