CheckSum to Show Parallel Functional Test for Panels of Small Boards at APEX

Jan 07, 2020

CheckSum today announced plans to exhibit at the 2020 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 4-6, 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The team will showcase its new Parallel Functional Test in Booth #3445.

Small boards create numerous problems for electronics manufacturers because of the mismatch between production throughput and test throughput. This mismatch has been addressed by manufacturers in three ways: slowing production, batch processing with WIP Inventory buildup, and adding test capacity to match production throughput. Each of these approaches has costs and side-effects for manufacturers.

An increase in panel density is driving substantial efficiency and throughput gains on the SMT lines; however, typical testing processes are unable to match this increased throughput.

A new kind of test technology utilizes simultaneous functional testing of the entire panel of small boards. Parallel Test provides benefits to manufacturers by matching SMT line throughput. The major benefits of this new technology are:

  • Enabling Inline Test to eliminate human handling,

  • Provide Real-Time Data to Intelligent Digital Systems,

  • Eliminate the need for WIP Inventory, reducing rework issues, increasing throughput and efficiency, and simplifying the process by eliminating test cell operations.
