Ucamco Releases FaultStation v2021.09

Reading time ( words)

Ucamco is proud to announce the official release of FaultStation v2021.09. FaultStation is electrical test software that addresses new challenges in our sector, especially with this latest release.  

As Electrical Test has been steadily evolving over the years, test machine manufacturers are adding more test types (4-Wire, Inductance, etc) and are producing more informative fault types. FaultStation is now able to load these new Error Code types and assist in diagnosing the fault. The software also provides improved views for assistance in the fault finding process.

Below are some of the most significant improvements over the last version of FaultStation. 

  • Testpoint View Windows
  • Handling of new error types produced by ATG and Gardien machines
  • Support for L&M log files and barcodes
  • Update of Help

If you wish to upgrade to this version, please contact your local sales channel or the Ucamco Pre-Sales department at presales@ucamco.com.

Alex Stepinski: A Philosophical View

11/30/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
"My philosophy is to rely more on sensors throughout the process to measure things non-destructively, then build a model for how you’re going to perform, and just validate against the model," said Alex Stepinski. "It’s the next step slowly happening worldwide. For instance, we’ve had 2D AOI for many years. Sometimes, this is complemented with electrical tests. Now, you start to see more 3D AOI happening. You see them putting more sensors on the AOI equipment for direct measurement. Then, you also have the traditional signal integrity testing."

New Methods for Quantifying PCB Design Weaknesses and Manufacturing Challenges

11/18/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Gerry Partida explains, "The industry is at a new point in evolving how we look at building boards. Our industry has historically built boards and then tried to find a test for them. Then, when they found a test for it, they figured out that it needed to be analyzed before they built the board. We did this with electrical test. We built boards and down the road, as people started asking, “Why am I buying bad boards? We should electrically test them,” electrical test was introduced, reluctantly, into the test part of manufacturing printed circuit boards by suppliers or fabricators. Then they embraced it. But when we started testing boards, we did comparison tests."

Your Greatest Competition is Yourself

01/20/2021 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
It really doesn’t matter who you think your external competitors are, because the only competitor that really matters is you. Of course, you will look externally to stay on top of latest trends, but when it comes to competition, just competing with yourself is a win. When you look at yourself as your greatest competitor you will start with a huge advantage: you already have great intel on how “your competition” thinks. Ask yourself, “What can I do to displace my ‘competitor’ and create something much better?”
