XJTAG, a world leading supplier of boundary scan technology and Flying Test Systems, a leading provider of electronic test solutions in the UK and Ireland, on June 6th, 2017, announce the signing of a joint Technology Partner Agreement.
Flying Test Systems offer electronic circuit board test and repair services, Design for Test (DFT) consultancy services along with in-circuit, SPEA flying probe and bespoke functional test equipment for production.
Commenting on the agreement with XJTAG, Nigel Priest, Managing Director, Flying Test Systems, says: “Test engineers face increasing pressure with devices that have little or no access to their pins, and space for test points is under pressure. At Flying Test Systems we are constantly looking out for the best test solutions for our clients and found that XJTAG boundary scan offers great functionality that is priced competitively, user-friendly and comes with a flexible licensing model.”
XJTAG has been working with a variety of test solution providers including flying probe vendors in order to offer the best-in-class test capability and value for clients. Ensuring continuous DFT improvement and that testing Ball Grid Array (BGA) devices on dense boards do not impact test coverage now means combining JTAG boundary scan, bed-of-nails and flying probe machines to achieve the best results. Powerful and easy to use, integrated testing enables engineers to minimize test time while maximising test coverage by using boundary scan.
Simon Payne, CEO of XJTAG, says: “We are delighted to be working closely with Flying Test Systems and to have them as a Technology Partner. They have a large installed base of clients across defence, aerospace, automotive, medical, industrial & semiconductor throughout the UK. Flying Test Systems understand the day to day challenges of test and can help find the right solution for testing electronics.”
As electronic circuits become more complicated the collaboration between leading suppliers is not only helping address the challenges facing engineers today but is also creating test solutions fit for the future.
