Acculogic’s Manufacturing Test Systems Division, a global leader in electronics test and production solutions, announces that it will host several Advances in Limited Access Testing seminars throughout February 2011.

Bob Steel, North American Sales Manager, and Greg Leblonc, Application and Flying Probe Product Manager, will discuss advances in limited access testing. Titled “A Day with the Expert,” the one-day seminars are free to attendees and will be presented as follows:

  • February 16, Huntsville, AL

  • February 17, Atlanta, GA

  • February 23, Tampa, FL

  • February 24, Melbourne, FL

  • February 25, Orlando, FL

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, increased board yields and higher levels of test coverage, and a test engineer’s life is far from easy. The seminars present recent advances in testing methodology including design for test, new boundary scan tools, and flying probe testers that address the demands outlined above.

The seminars are 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, they are ideal for those who work with an OEM or in a contract manufacturing environment, or who do production line tests.

Bob Steel has been with Acculogic for four years and before then he worked at Landrex in the AOI systems market. Previous to that he spent approximately 20 years at Teradyne and GenRad where he was involved in ICT, functional test, AOI and X-ray inspection. This broad level of experience in production test and inspection allows Bob to provide valuable counseling to customers about how to improve existing manufacturing processes.

Greg Leblonc, PE and member of IEEE, has been with Acculogic for more than 12 years and serves as Application and Flying Probe Product Manager. Greg was involved with Acculogic’s first flying probe system, the Sprint, and has been instrumental in it hardware and software improvements over the years. Greg also is in charge of engineering enhancements for the new Scorpion Flying Probe System. As Application Manager, Greg has many years of experience and has become an expert in providing test solutions for complex PCBs.

Acculogic is a Canadian-based company that specializes in Limited Access Test Solutions, including Flying Probe Systems, Boundary Scan and Functional Test. The company also provides Test Programs for Teradyne and Agilent platforms.
