Everett Charles Technologies announces that Chad Hankinson, President of the Fixture and Services Group (FSG), will be a panellist on the Test & Inspection Summit at the upcoming IPC/APEX conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place April 6-8, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas. The summit will be held during Session FF01, which will take place Tuesday, April 6, 2010 from 1:30-3 p.m.

Building on the 2009 Summit, a panel of experts will discuss the latest test challenges and the technologies that are emerging to deal with them, including JTAG/boundary-scan test and vectorless test techniques as well as the continued role of in-circuit electrical test, optical inspection, X-ray inspection and functional electrical test.

The emergence of 3-D chips is posing test challenges to board and system designers as well as chip makers. Designers and manufacturers will have to pay particular attention to design-for-test techniques, leveraging the DFT that chip makers provide to support PCB test, field diagnostics, and field firmware upgrades.

Chad Hankinson has been in the loaded board test market with Everett Charles Technologies for the past 20 years and has been President of the Fixture and Services group for the past five years. The Fixture and Services group of Everett Charles is the world’s largest in-circuit programming and fixture supplier. The group has manufacturing sites in Colorado and New York to satisfy the North American Market, Singapore to satisfy the South Asia Market, Hungary to satisfy the European market, and Shenzhen China and Suzhou China to satisfy the China market.
