We regularly produce boards populated with a large variety of component types. For example large Quad Flat Packs with around 300 pins and 0,5 mm pitch and small ceramic 0402 size resistors, both for the military, medical and space market. As a standard during space production we automatically control the electrical value of all passive components mounted onto our boards to ensure the quality, which of course is a possibility also for non-space products. We were one of the first companies within the space industry that were awarded with an ESA qualification for use of Area Array Packages, such as Column Grid Arrays CGA, in our products.
Electrical tests are made routinely along the manufacturing flow on fully automated test stations. If needed, thermal tests can be made already on PCB level to minimize rework costs.
We perform ICT with a tester designed for high volume production tests. Equipped with a Press-Down Unit and a combination of analog and hybrid In-Circuit test pins, the tester can be equipped with functional test modules to provide higher fault coverage and thus satisfy the test requirements of a vast number of customers.
The system can be equipped with up to 2000 analog or 1600 hybrid pins, providing a reasonable-size platform.
We also possess a set of software tools to provide Design for Testability checks, fixture designs, and to generate circuit descriptions.
