AWS believes that customers strive to provide the most reliable product to their end customer. A successful test strategy will reveal the defects most likely to occur in the electronics manufacturing process and will therefore improve product cost effectiveness and ensure delivery of a reliable quality product to market.

As PCB assemblies become increasingly more complex, the ability to test these using traditional methods and systems becomes more difficult. Therefore considering Design for Test (DfT) in the early stages of product development is vitally important to ensure that adequate test coverage and fault diagnosis can be achieved.

DfT benefits include:

  • Increased test coverage
  • Reduced test times
  • Robust, repeatable products
  • Reduced test costs

AWS’s dedicated test managers work closely with the design and production teams to monitor and advise on every aspect of test development, to ensure that leading edge test solutions are embedded during the manufacturing process.

Our  test engineers routinely develop cost effective ATE and custom functional test systems to verify the performance of products, from PCBAs and Sub-Assemblies to Higher Level System Assemblies, to meet the contract requirements.

AWS offers a wide range of test options, ensuring that we can offer the correct test strategy for your products.
