Full turn-key provider Fast Interconnect recently announced the expansion of its services to include test engineering services. Increased test coverage and reduced test times are the key qualification tools for enabling the best production yield. As detection of the manufacturing faults after the shipment impacts the customer's satisfaction and increases the overall cost of test and repair, it is important for the FAB and assembly houses to employ the right manufacturing test strategies. The product companies also need to collaborate with their FAB and Assembly houses to provide the right test processes, scripts and test programs.
According to Gary Griffin, the company’s co-founder, "Our Test Engineering group understands these manufacturing test strategies much better as we work very closely with the fabrication and assembly houses to produce quality printed circuit boards and packages. Our test engineering services are created to help you to achieve better test coverage and test times at a reduced cost. We provide integrated test engineering solutions involving Boundary Scan Test, Functional Test and Test process and equipment automation.”
