Datest: 30 years of testing and test engineering utilizing in-circuit, flying probe, boundary scan, and functional platforms. Also AXI/2D/3D x-ray, CT-scan failure analysis, and bonepile rehab of functional/field failures.

Repair/Rework, Test Services, Service Provider

Based in Fremont, CA, Datest is an ISO9001- and AS9100-certified provider of advanced, integrated PCBA testing and inspection services, serving the CM/EMS as well as the OEM community since 1984. We offer in-circuit testing (ICT) and test development (hardware and software) for all major ICT platforms (Agilent 3070, GenRad, and Teradyne). We augment ICT with SPEA Flying Probe testing, Agilent 5DX and Dage Ruby 2D X-ray with X-Plane Technology, benchtop boundary scan, and functional testing

Test is our business...our ONLY business. You require unique priorities and test solutions as technology advances. Our business is to identify your requirements and develop test strategies with unique specialized options, allowing you the flexibility and coverage needed to meet your test goals.

We do NOT provide an off-the-shelf product for a problem that requires a unique solution.  Nor do we settle for mediocre coverage when it takes more to attain better. Working with this core belief, our professional engineering staff develops these unique options that have become and still are becoming, benchmarks of the test industry.
