Productivity Challenges of Manually Probing High Density Circuits
Vision, Dexterity and Distractions continually limit the effectiveness and reliability of diagnostic measurements. Technicians and
engineers equipped with the most advanced test instruments still have to locate the test point, place the probe and take the measurement.
- Vision Factor:
High density circuit components are difficult to see and often require magnification devices.
- Dexterity Factor:
Measurement points can be small and close together. Accurate probe placement and repeatable measurements can be difficult.
- Distraction Factor:
Interruptions by telephones, coworkers, pages and meetings can take their toll on completing a test procedure.
Finding the Right Automation Solution to Meet Your Needs
Start by identifying the process that needs to be automated and then consider the requirements that will fix your problem.
Define the accuracy, speed and number of test points you require then look at the robotic platform options available. Lastly, consider the price
versus the cost savings in reduced test time, fewer misplaced probes and lower burden on engineering resources.
