why poor contact between PCBA board and probe？ When I used ICT to test PCBA board, there was poor contact between board and probe .

Yes we do have a problem with this. We have by now investigate numerous lead/RoHS PCBA:s The RoHS boards are by far the most difficult one's to probe and test. Our people at the "test area" including Flying Probe and ICT they spend a lot of time to t

Hey guys, Anybody having trouble with increased false contact issues in ICT after switching from lead to lead free? Our test guys keep trying to imply that the flux residues are a problem (we're using Alpha EF2202), but as the soldering process eng

I agree! I am using a SAC305 no clean from Alpha. I have noticed that even hand probing with volt meter leads requires me to press very hard on the pads to bust through the flux residue.

in all actuality, you are both right. Alpha metals does have the toughest/hardest noclean residue that I have seen. When changing to no-clean FLUX you should run different probes. So back to square one. You're both right so who's gonna win?

Thanks for your replies! So what I understand is that ICT in reality is "only" a production process safety net, but it's a net that in most practical cases is needed. What ICT can not catch is (all) bad solder joints. What are the methods to find t

With TestJet technology, if we want to test a 64 pin BGA, would we need probe access to each net of the device to get full coverage? If not, would I only get coverage to the pins that have probe access? In a nut shell, How exactly does it work?

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

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

As the article eludes to, you still need probe access to measure the pins with TestJet. One thing I wanted to add was the use of JTAG for use with Boundary Scan. Certain devices have JTAG capability, but not all JTAG devices are Boundary Scan compa
