Our ICT Guy here at my company loves to use lots of via holes as test points - via holes which are 0.040" diameter, and spaced at 0.004" edge to edge spacing! He doesn't like to tent the via's either, so I always battle via-to-via shorts at the wave

Samir, From experience, the only board test situation where tented via's have difficulty with contact is with a Flying Probe type tester. Otherwise, for traditional ICT, the force of the pogo pins, correct probe type, and fixture design should do th

First, I don�t understand why your board fabricator can�t do a good job plugging your vias. Additionally, when you consider that they forgot to plug the first batch of boards, it makes me wonder if they are desirable as a supplier. Generally, we us

Q #1) Is it more reliable to have the mask tent over the vias or risk getting vias half filled with solder? These are vias with an .020" hole and .040" or .050" pad. WIth regards to this question, and scott's follow up, I have used the "epoxy me

I wonder if they are concerned about getting chemicals trapped in the tented vias. If the tented vias have pin hole openings or even larger openings, chemicals from the ENIG process could become entrapped in the via holes and not washed away in the
