The PCB Troubleshooting Flowchart


This PCB Troubleshooting Flowchart was first developed by Huntron Technical Support 25+ years ago and looking at it now is still pertinent to today’s PCB repair environment. It provides a fairly accurate window into the process many technicians and engineers follow when looking to diagnose and repair a printed circuit board (PCB).
In this article we take a closer look each step in the process and offers some suggestions that may help you with your PCB repair procedures.

PCB Testing – The Benefits and Drawbacks of Common Strategies

PCB Testing – The Benefits and Drawbacks of Common Strategies


PCB testing to find manufacturing defects

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) can be manufactured quickly. Pick-and-place machines automate the placement of components onto the PCB, and reflow ovens eliminate the need to solder each connection separately. However, high-speed manufacturing requires a PCB testing strategy that can keep up with production. Slow testing can create a bottleneck in your facility.

Every manufacturing process has an inherent failure rate. Placement of solder outside of the designated location can lead to a solder bridge that might be invisible to visual inspection. PCB testing is crucial to:

  • Minimize waste.
  • Reduce returned products.
  • Optimize safety.

Without an adequate testing strategy, your business could face diminished profit margins, unhappy customers and even product liability lawsuits.
