Datest Corp. Adds Agilent 5DX Inspection Capability to List of Offerings

Aug 12, 2009

FREMONT, CA — August 2009 — Datest Corp., a leading provider of advanced, efficient and quality in-circuit testing solutions, added Agilent 5DX inspection capability to its list of service offerings, cutting costs and protecting margins in manufacturing environments where complexity is a driving factor and defect tolerance is narrow.

“The introduction of 5DX X-ray inspection to Datest’s lineup of test platforms complements and reinforces Datest’s full-service test capabilities. Automated X-ray inspection enhances Datest’s existing in-circuit, functional test, and flying probe offerings,” said Robert Boguski, Datest’s new President. “5DX inspection is unsurpassed as a diagnostic tool for board-level troubleshooting and rework of manufacturing defects in volume. Our customers win as Datest delivers additional value for their testing dollars.”

The 5DX Automated X-ray Inspection system provides 3D X-ray inspection for both in-line and off-line operations. Additionally, it is capable of inspecting both sides of a double-sided panel in one pass, and is designed for in-line or off-line automated process testing of solder connections on PCB assemblies, with pass-through or pass-back loading.

The system is designed to meet the high-speed manufacturing rates required for high-volume, high-technology consumer products such as cellular phones and notebook computers. Throughput improvements are due to a combination of technology enhancements that include improved image acquisition and analysis, improved board handling, dynamic motion-damping software, and faster stage speeds. Additionally, for smaller boards, a dual-panel loading capability has been added to maximize throughput.

About Datest Corporation

Founded in 1984, Datest Corporation identified a lack of professional outsourcing support in the circuit test industry. Originally partnered with a CRM company, Datest opened its doors and began to perform steadily, ultimately becoming one of the most trusted testing houses in the industry. While new and different technologies emerge, Datest is here to take on the challenge of learning and supporting these new processes and today offers the testing platforms of the three major ATE manufacturers, as well as flying probe testing.
