New component package types and shrinking PCB sizes continue to challenge test engineers. Today’s high-mix, small-run production environment means that test development times are always tight and budgets are limited. Insert the need for better quality and higher levels of test coverage, and a test engineer’s life is far from easy. This seminar presents recent advances in testing methodology including design for test, new boundary scan tools, and flying probe testers that address the demands outlined above.
The seminar is geared toward test engineers who are challenged with testing boards with little or no access, the need for faster test development cycles and better test coverage. Additionally, it is ideal for those who work with an OEM or in a contract manufacturing environment, or who do production line tests.
