With complexities of PCB design scaling and manufacturing processes adopting to environmentally friendly practices raise challenges in ensuring structural quality of PCBs. This makes it essential to have a good 'Design for Test' (DFT) to ensure a robust structural test. (...)
During the course of the DFT review, can we realize a good test strategy for the PCBA. How can the test strategy of the PCBA be partitioned as to what portions of the design can be covered structurally and what is covered functionally, in a way that provides best diagnostics to discover faults
