Fixtureless Testing With a Flying Prober
A Better Way To TestAs the trend in the increase of board complexity continues, the capabilities of automated test equipment or in-circuit testers are challenged and even exceeded. This could be due to the lack of or limited physical access (test points) to components or, limited tester channels or, the cost of fixture design and fabrication, especially for large node count boards.
Flying probe test systems require no test fixturing, have few restrictions on board access, and can test boards with virtually unlimited number of nets. These systems also allow developers to complete test programs in a short time. Appropriately, the Acculogic Scorpion Flying Probe test platform is an essential part of any PCBA test strategy, serving both prototype and production volume test requirements, providing maximum flexibility for electronics manufacturers. Application of new and innovative design features to increase test speed, board access, reliability, and repeatability, have opened up new possibilities for deployment of Acculogic’s FLS980 flying probe test platform. As the first patented flying prober with double sided testing and 22 interchangeable probe modules, the FLS980 is leading the way in defining new leaner and more efficient deployment models for production environments.
