Design For Test
Design For Test (DFT) is a technique used to implement certain testability features into a product. Testing House can provide an analysis of the CAD data for testability of your circuit board. Access to a board can be very difficult as boards get smaller and designs get more densely populated. We can work with your design engineer to improve testability and maintain an effective in-circuit test. When access to the board is limited and boundary scan devices are present, we can provide the customer a list of key nodes that will require access in order to provide a very effective test. Our analysis will provide a list of all the accessible test points and an explanation for any nodes declared inaccessible.
Testing House developed a software tool that allows one to automatically analyze a CAD file in order to calculate a very accurate preliminary coverage. Results are based on a fixture predesign process which consists of probe assignment using GRD2B.
