Sponsored by Test & Measurement World magazine, the Test and Inspection Summit forum will take place Thursday, April 3 from 10:15 � 11:45 a.m. Chad Hankinson, president of the ECT Fixture Services Group (FSG), will participate in the forum that is free to all attendees.
As board complexity increases and component dimensions decrease, test engineers find it challenging to develop test strategies that maximize quality while keeping test costs under control. Rarely will one test or inspection technology suffice to deliver defect-free boards. Engineers must determine the optimum mix and match of these technologies: in-circuit electrical test, optical inspection, X-ray inspection, functional electrical test and JTAG/boundary-scan test. Furthermore, engineers must evaluate tradeoffs within these broad technology areas.
Attendees will participate in an interactive discussion and will benefit from a panel of industry experts who will provide their knowledge and recommendations.
