TestWay software assesses defect opportunities and identifies possible consequences of inadequate testability and test coverage on a new design. Analyzes each stage of the design-to-delivery workflow. Checks ROHS, reliability, DPMO, BSDL file validation to guide component selection. Verifies electrical DfT guidelines. Includes standard checks and customer’s specific checks. Optimizes test probe placement according to test strategy definitions, estimates test coverage, models the cost, and calculates production yield and TL9000 initial return rates. Estimates test coverage using theoretical models for a range of test and inspection strategies. Exports CAD data into native format usable by assembly machines, AOI, automated x-ray, in-circuit testers, flying probe testers and boundary scan testers. Can read completed test program or test report and compare the coverage between the estimated and measured analysis.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
