Founded in 1986 in Strambino, a small town located in the Canavese district of Italy (long noted for its high concentration of electronic and information technology companies), SEICA has eprogressed from developing its first in-circuit Test system for the domestic electronics industry to become a world leader in Flying Probe and functional test systems. Today Seica is one of the major suppliers of test equipment, with more than 1000 systems installed on five continents.
Over the years the Company has grown up, and now has subsidiaries in France (2000), the United States (2003), China (2004) and Germany (2008), with a global distribution network covering market needs worldwide.
Research and implementation of new technologies
From the beginning Seica has led in innovation, researching and implementing new technologies. In 1994, SEICA was the first European Company to design and manufacture a Flying Probe tester, and in 2003 presented a revolutionary, laser-based selective soldering solution.
The research in new technologies is promptly applied in the development of new products, allowing Seica to offer a widely diverse and flexible portfolio of products. The company, in fact, has 5 different product lines:
- Pilot Line: flying probe test systems
- Valid Line: high performance functional test systems
- BBT Line: Bare board test systems
- Compact Line: In-circuit and functional test systems
- Firefly Line: Laser selective soldering systems
Solutions and systems integrated in a unique platform
All SEICA products are based on its unique hardware and software platform, called VIVA Integrated Platform (VIP). The VIVA software offers a complete set of automated instruments to develop, execute and maintain in-circuit and functional test programs for analog, digital and hybrid boards and the VIP hardware includes integrated, DSP technology, delivering fast, accurate, comprehensive solutions which are extremely cost effective.
Seica’s R&D Team often cooperates with researchers from univerisites such as the Politecnico of Torino to compare its technologies with the latest in engineering innovation.

Oct 07, 2021 | Seica will be exhibiting at the SMTA International show in Minneapolis, MN on November 1-4, 2021 in booth 3432. On display will be our flagship Pilot V8, undoubtedly the most extensive flying probing test platform on the market. This system will be demonstrating full In-circuit testing as well as on-board programming, using Seica's innovative Device Clip programmer and integrated Flypod option, which ensures quick, reliable connection to any connector or programmable device on the DUT. To enhance test coverage where traditional ICT test methods may not be used, the Flypod can also provide access to the DUT for 3rd party Boundary Scan test solutions, to perform cluster tests and run BSD files. The system on display will also showcase its power up test capability, which enables many additional test techniques to be applied, such as LED testing. In addition, Seica's QuickTest software environment allows the user to easily generate and incorporate functional test routines within full ICT test programs.
Aug 20, 2021 | Don't miss Seica's Pilot Battery Tester (PILOT BT) demonstration at The Battery Show in Novi, Michigan, September 14-16, in booth 3036! Seica will demonstrate the testing of battery cells in an inline test configuration with its Pilot BT. With its impressive parallel testing architecture, the Pilot BT can test 16 cells simultaneously to readily meet the throughput requirements of very high-volume production environments with an incredible test rate. The standard system configuration includes a pass-through conveyance by Bosch, but it can also be configured with unique customer conveyance solutions integrated into completely automated lines. The Pilot BT offers a very large test area (1050 x 865 mm) not only enabling it to handle the many battery configurations currently on the market, but the capacity to manage the configurations of the future. The Pilot BT is equipped with high-definition cameras and laser sensor to ensure proper fiducial recognition of the battery and terminal plates for proper battery placement inside the test area. No matter the battery technology, type, size or shape, Seica has a solution for high production, reliable, and repeatable test.
