Hello friends , What is the extent of Probe mark allowed on a assembled board ? Is there any related material on net or standard .Recently we had an issue where the ICT was done and the joints on which the pins were tested had dents on the joints

I'm not aware of any such stipulation about witness [probe] marks for assembled boards, per se. Certainly, witness marks should not affect the intended performance of the assembly, you know, like damaging the solder connection or smudging solder mate

Dear Dave/pr/Reese, Thank you so much for the information and this will certainly help me to align on the query .Would like to know further :During Flying probe testing the vias are also observed that they have pin mark on the annular ring due to the

How deep is the indent? I would say as long as it is hitting nothing but net (the solder fill), your fine. Besides, you should notice indents on your solder fillets of components on the top-side as well. This is also expected and acceptable.

Actually, if you experience lack of witness marks, you probably have a problem. Witness marks are OK and will not affect your assembly. I assume this is an SMT assembly we are talking about, in which case, this is what your test pads are for. You

With the new rev D release of IPC-A_610 came a new section 10.2.9.3 which identifies a via (through hole) with nicks along the inside of the annular ring. Defect is all three classes and states "Damage to conductor or lands". We have for years defa

In-Circuit Test is the best method for ensuring solder joint connections. It is a much more reliable than AOI. An ICT machine can ensure solder connections are made for array package devices such as BGA, PGA, etc... AOI is best for component I.D.- is

We have recently had an incident where we feel that we have received a batch of cards from our assembly house which have by-passed their ICT operation. This has been determined by the lack of any indentations on the test pads from the sprung probes.
