VJ Technologies and Datest Partner in West Coast Inspection Services, Showroom and Demonstration Center.

Jun 27, 2017

VJ Technologies (VJT), a global leader in providing digital X-ray inspection system and services solutions, announced today it will partner with Datest (ABM Test Inc.) on a West Coast inspection services center, showroom and demonstration facility.

In the agreement, Datest will provide its Fremont, California facility and personnel for the inspection services center, showroom and demonstration center. VJ Technologies and its dynamic line of imaging systems will provide a high-precision (5-10 micron) micro focus DR/CT system, VJT’s world-class Vi3 DR software and Fraunhofer’s VOLEX CT software, and all associated DR and CT workstations. NAS410 Level II and Level III personnel will be available, as needed, as part of the new service. Other VJT products and services will be on display and available for use and demonstrations. Training and consultation services also will be featured. Quick-turnaround inspection and failure analysis services will be available to all industry sectors, building on Datest’s well-known and highly successful printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) failure analysis service of the past five years. VJT also will back up Datest for high-energy X-ray applications at its New York and Connecticut facilities.

“Having Datest as our partner and adding a West Coast inspection services location will be great for both companies,” said Vijay Alreja, CEO, VJ Technologies. “This location will add greater flexibility and convenience for our customers while improving response time for existing customers in the area.”

“Adding VJT’s products and services to our facility will help our growing company add to our total inspection service offerings, while improving performance and productivity,” said Robert A. Boguski, Jr., President of Datest. “In addition to excellent customer service, our goal is to use the best equipment available and respond with a tailored solution to every client’s needs. It’s all about speed of delivery and flexibility. We think we’ve perfected the operating model for quick-turnaround X-ray services; now we need to broaden our service offering to other industry sectors. In all business areas our key client remains the same: an engineer with a problem, in need of an immediate solution. The movement of large dollars typically depend on that solution. We need to deliver an answer, in the form of images showing the root cause of failure, as quickly as possible. The VJ Team are Datest’s right partners for this challenging and dynamic application.”

We are finalizing equipment setup, and will soon announce our grand opening and open house event!  Please continue to check your email and our website for announcement details and

Datest was founded in 1984 to address the growing trend of outsourcing assembly test services, together with increasing OEM demands that EMS providers deliver fully tested, functioning product.  This trend has only accelerated to the present day, driven forward by relentless challenges of component miniaturization, order-of-magnitude increases in packaging density and performance (Moore's Law!), and resultant accessibility constraints using traditional ICT methodologies.  Developing the means to successfully test the products of this evolving packaging density lies at the core of Datest's integrated test approach. Datest integrates traditional electrical board test methodologies (ICT, Flying Probe, and JTAG/Boundary Scan) with failure analysis (nondestructive as well as destructive), reverse engineering and “bonepile” rehabilitation, functional test development, and analytical laboratory services. Datest also offers comprehensive X-ray services (2D, 3D, and CT) for root cause analysis, high-level inspection and metrology, and dispute resolution.

The owner and president of Datest, Robert A. Boguski, Jr., is a 37-year veteran of the electronic interconnect Industry, with a broad-based background in, and management of, board fabrication, design, assembly, program direction, sales and marketing, as well as test, component and manufacturing engineering.
