atg Luther & Maelzer Extends Range of Flying Probe Test Systems


Reading time ( words)

atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH extended its range of Flying Probe test systems by launching a line for test areas of up to 40’’ width. The oversized systems complement the standard line which can load boards with sizes of up to 27’’ width.

Special network technology and aerospace applications are driving the demand for high test coverage and 4-wire testing (Kelvin test) for large PCBs. However, 4- or 8-head solutions are not satisfying customer requirements for speed and throughput. The unique and industry leading architecture of the atg Luther & Maelzer flying probe systems makes it possible to use a higher number of probes per test area resulting in faster test time and lower cost of test. To meet these requirements atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH launched the 16-,  20- and 24-head machines with test areas of up to 40’’ width. Depending on the number of test heads, the resulting maximum test area sizes are 40’’x40’’, 40’’x50’’ or 40’’x60’’.

atg Luther & Maelzer Sales Director for Europe and responsible product manager, Peter Brandt, highlights: “The new systems make our high end test methods now also available for the test of oversized PCBs. When considering that the 24 head version allows up to 15,000 contacts per minute, it is a significant leap forward for our customers.“

Study on Application of Four-Wire and Four-Terminal Flying Probe Test Scheme

08/10/2018 | Jin Erbing, Joint Stars Technology Co., Ltd
With the four-wire and four-terminal flying probe test method, voids in the holes formed in the PCB due to process differences, thin copper, and poor conduction due to residual adhesive after laser drilling of the HDI board can be detected, and the circuit board guide can be solved. With the development of multilayer, high-density PCB layout, four-wire four-terminal flying probe testing will play an increasingly important role.

IPC 6012-DA Revisions: The Approach to Cleanliness, Thickness, Inspection, and Wicking

04/13/2018 | Jan Pedersen, ELMATICA
IPC’s Automotive Addendum task group was started in November 2014 and the first edition of IPC 6012-DA was released in April 2016. We are now working on the revised version, and expect a release in Q2 2018. As standards need to evolve, develop and follow the needs of the industry, this work is continuous.
