Testability

As an integral technical partner with our customers, they are committed to a long-term and mutually profitable relationship. In today’s highly competitive market, Our Partner understands the importance of cost-effective and timely solutions. While they always seek the best production price for our customers, they consider cost efficiency to begin at the design phase of a product.

In general, testing is implemented in three linear phases: component, board level and functional. The common perception for testing is to verify the integrity and function of every unit, but it neglects the benefit of diagnostic data gathering. With this vital data, defective units can be restored into operational, deliverable products. Achieving this objective requires sophisticated, refined testing parameters and procedures, which become a major cost driver. Furthermore, the complexity and cost for testing and diagnostic analysis escalates exponentially at every next step. Therefore, it is prudent and advantageous to identify, minimize and resolve problems early.

Our Partner believes a disciplined manufacturing process, combined with skilled technicians, can improve and enhance the performance toward MDA/ICT component testing. However, without a proper testability design, testing and diagnostic analysis for board level and functional phases can become extremely challenging. Simplistically, Testability is to provide test point accessibility to every net within the circuit and demands diligence in component, board and system level designs. Without proper test points and built-in test programming, fault isolation will be time-consuming, and in some cases, impossible. Such outcomes adversely affect productivity, inevitably magnify production costs, and negatively impact time-to-market strategy, brand equity and profitability.

To enhance yields and re-capture these lost profits, Our Partner offers complimentary advices on testability objectives and approaches. As part of our commitment to deliver value-added services, we also offer preliminary testability design review to potential customers. We will offer possible solutions to achieve the highest product performance. Our customers have found this service to be invaluable. The following list highlights some of the critical issues to consider.
