Test Services for Circuit Card Assemblies
At times, prototype and production builds may require test services to meet a level of test to be performed prior to shipment. This may entail basic functional testing, power-up testing, or perhaps post-assembly failure analysis, essentially troubleshooting an engineer’s R&D design if it’s not performing to its functional specifications. NPI Services has the printed circuit board test equipment and trained staff to perform such a variety of post-assembly test services for its customers.
NPI’s PCB Testing equipment list includes:
Tektronix (MDO4104-6) Mixed Domain Oscilloscope/Spectrum and Logic Analyzer
Tektronix (FCA3020) Timer/Counter/Analyzer
Tektronix (DMM4050) 6 ½ Digit Precision Multimeter
Tektronix (PWS4205, PWS4602) Programmable DC Power Supplies
Tektronix (AFG3251) Single Channel Arbitrary/Function Generator
Hubbell (HD100) Hi-Pot Tester
Circuit Card Assembly Test Services include:
Basic functional test: Customer supplied test procedure/script. NPI will verify and document product performance under controlled test input conditions.
Power-up Test: Validate PCB design integrity…no opens/shorts exist.
Troubleshoot PCB layout: If issues exist, “ohm out” PCB with power applied.
PCB failure analysis: Utilizing customer supplied schematics and assembly drawings, NPI will perform “top level” circuit design testing to determine failure mode.
Environmental and Analytical Test Services
Product reliability under adverse conditions is of particular concern to Mil-Aero manufacturers and the defense industry as a whole. Coupled with RoHS compliance concerns among manufacturers looking to penetrate the European marketplace, NPI’s portfolio of test services includes Environmental and Analytical testing, with a focus on reliability assessment and chemical testing. Listed at right are several test services available in each category. Contact us for your PCB assembly testing service in California requirements.
