Feasa Analyzer – Nearly Effortless LED Testing:

 

Recently Intrinsic Quality visited with a major manufacturer of electronic interface panels. They were looking to have a PCB assembly tested with 18 LEDs mounted. They were concerned about the ease of implementing LED test and were not interested in changing their current testers. Instead, they wanted an easy to set up secondary test station for the functional testing of the LEDs on assemblies.

Setting up the test will be a breeze. The test parameters can be set using the Feasa analyser software utilities’ “Auto-Learn” feature. This will take the readings of a known good board and use those settings as the test specifications. Tolerences can be set either numerically or by percentage. The software has a friendly user interface and can be enabled for data logging.

Implementation of  functional LED test is expected to improve the manufacturer’s throughput while decreasing the number of defective units shipped – all easily accomplished with Feasa LED analyser hardware and software.

A High Potential for High Voltage Testing

May 10, 2013

PS Angled PS

Intrinsic Quality has dealt with a wide variety of customer requests. These have included everything from simple go / no-go functional testers to complicated universal testers utilizing computer controlled instrumentation. Recently one of our customers, a company in the integrated circuit validation industry, requested Intrinsic Quality to build a universal tester for their transformer assemblies. However, these assemblies required hi-pot (hypot) and other testing done at  high voltages.

IQ’s Safety in High Voltage Universal Testing:

To ensure operator safety, Intrinsic Quality engineered a plexi-glass enclosure for the DUT (device under test). Since the assembly was both bulky and heavy, it required a cart to safely transport it. The enclosure was built large enough to contain both the assembly being tested and the cart. A panel was mounted on the back of the enclosure to enable the testing.

The tester is designed for universal testing, and is able to test all the assembly’s different configurations. Implementation of the tester is expected to increase manufacturing throughput and improve quality control. The tester is controlled through custom created software. Test resources are accessed through the tester’s Virginia Panel interface with exchangeable fixtures. The tester’s graphic user interface makes the testing procedure a breeze.  Call Intrinsic Quality today at 847-258-5598 to see how our engineers can bring a solution to your testing needs.
