Going from a PCB design house to a non-associated PCB assembly house often poses a problem for the OEM customer. Simply put, design-for-manufacturing or DFM is completely neglected. A number of PCB design mis-steps can occur at layout, especially when you have inexperienced designers who have good intentions, but fail to understand the nuances of […]

The main reason ATE PCBs must be properly and comprehensively cleaned is largely due to the DUT. DUT stands for device under test, which is the circuit area on the ATE PCB where your new µP, SoC, FPGA, or any other valuable semiconductor product is to be tested. Special care must go toward eliminating any […]

An automatic test equipment (ATE) PCB (a.k.a. a test board) is at the heart of all major test activities targeted at verifying a specific semiconductor chip’s functionality. Semiconductor chip technology has become so advanced that testing these highly complex devices must be performed effectively to ensure high reliability and functionality. This allows chipmakers to convey […]

IoT devices going into military/aerospace, medical and/or highly specialized industrial applications demand ultra-high reliability so they operate properly according to their tight specifications. That means the small IoT printed circuit boards (PCBs) must be ultra-clean and virtually free of any contaminants or chemical residues. But to understand how best to gain that IoT reliability, we […]
