Introduction（What is Ultra-X?）
■What is Ultra-X?
Ultra-X Inc. (
) offers a wide array of Professional PC diagnostic solutions for IBM PC/AT compatible systems from foundation in 1987.
Ultra-X's diagnostic tools have been used by Developers, Manufacturers, OEM/ODMs, System Engineers, Service Technicians,
Integrators and Computer Professionals in world wide countries.
*PC/AT compatible system
IBM corp. has announced a personal computer called "PC/AT" in 1984. Since the system has open architecture,
many PC manufacturers has released compatible/clone systems. The systems are called as "PC/AT compatible system.
It is positioned as industry standard and almost of all current personal computers are PC/AT compatible.
■Tools for diagnostic and validation
[Why diagnostic tools are necessary?]
After IBM PC/AT launch, its architecture has become majority and kind of industry standard.
In these days, the compatible systems are not used in personal computer but also in various appliances like
POS cash register, ATM, medical equipment, industry embedded system and amusement devices.
Personal computer is built using various commodities which are manufactured by many companies.
Even if a commodity does not work or is not stable, system does not work correctly.
And if commodity works fine as unit level, they have different characteristics
within specifications. In some cases, due to the characteristics, compatibility
issue might be occurred. This might cause intermittent failure and need
to pay attention to prevent.
When error is occurred at development, manufacturing or operation, it is hard to determine what is cause of the error;
i.e. part defect, compatibility issue or OS related? Even in problem determination process,
it is time consuming to swap parts or re-install OS. And the process requires worker's skills and experiences.
Result and time is up to the workers. Ultra-X's diagnostic tools have been developed to solve the above issues.
[Diagnostic tools from Ultra-X]
Ultra-X's diagnostic tools detect each commodity level error like CPU,
memory or HDD. With "Self-boot technology", diagnostic software
uses proprietary direct hardware access commands to perform true low-level
diagnostics on core components in a O/S-Free environment.
[Recommendation to use diagnostic tools]
Ultra-X's diagnostic technology with long history has been used not only
for development and manufacturing but also service and support, repair and recycle purposes. For every stage of personal computer life cycle,
Ultra-X has provided useful tools.
In development stage, various commodities and their combinations should be tested. By using diagnostic tools, its testing time and cost can be reduced effectively.
In manufacturing stage, diagnostic tools are helpful for receiving inspection,
assemble process test and shipment inspection. The tool can contribute
to improve quality. Other than these examples, in service and support stage,
diagnostic tools can help quick problem determination for repair system.
Also in recycle stage, for specification confirmation and defect check,
diagnostic tools are helpful free from worker's skills and experiences.
