Avoiding Design Mistakes with Testing
Improve EMS Productivity by Testing Early
PC Board errors are a drain to EMS productivity. Through analysis and testing PCBs in the pilot stages, a smoother and more educated production set-up can be achieved. By performing automatic impedance measurements and testing of components (chip resistors and capacitors) early on, you can ensure the best design for production.
We recommend applying the best design logics when creating your PCB layout and Test, Test, Test for maximum efficiency and output. According to Circuits Assembly’s December 2016 Magazine, here is the list of 5 Most Common PCB Design Mistakes: “1. The components do not suit the production technology 2. Thermal imbalance 3. Incompatibility between fabrication and assembly technology 4. Component placement at PCB edge 5. Placing fiducials on the PCB’s edge.”
Once you have planned your PC Board with best practices, Southern Machinery’s High-Speed In-line Circuit Board Test Machine will help with testing by incorporating a visual inspection function which allows mounting status checks on each component (e.g.: typo descriptions in alphanumeric characters, orientation, size) on the operator’s monitor will serve to best analyze testing up close. As well as automatically generating test data from mounting data and component list.
