Today there is a new exciting news for all the electronics enthusiasts and those who work on PCB. We have already talked about Seeed’s services and products. There is no doubt that they provide the best product and service. So Great exciting Announcement is Seeed launched a brand new free functional testing.
PCBA manufacture is a difficult procedure with numerous intricate processes. Functional testing thus becomes an essential quality assurance technique to ensure the built PCB’s optimum functioning. Seeed Fusion recognize the critical importance of testing. Now all PCBA orders will now include free functional testing.
Why is testing important?
Receiving a product that is broken upon arrival, including PCB assembly, is the worst. The effects are expensive both financially and in terms of time, and they could be challenging to fix, especially without the required re-work tools. It might not be possible to use more expensive testing techniques like AOI or x-ray inspection (AXI) in small-batch manufacturing. Functional testing can be helpful in this situation.
What is PCBA Functional Testing?
The final quality assurance step in the entire production process, functional testing verifies that the boards do what they are supposed to do, by simulating the real operating environment. This can be as simple as an on/off power test, LED test, or running of a comprehensive software program.
Seeed now provides free functional testing for all PCBA orders to ensure the quality of your PCBA products and avoid costly delays.
The earlier issues are identified in manufacturing, the cheaper and simpler it is to fix them. Assuring that all boards leaving the manufacturing floor function as intended is possible by letting Seeed engineers handle testing before the boards are supplied to you. Seeed’s technicians can also perform point-to-point voltage tests, create custom test jigs, and handle burning firmware in-house.
How to Get Free PCBA Functional Testing?
By testing a single piece, you can identify errors that may go unnoticed through visual inspection alone and validate the entire turnkey process. Be among the early adopters to benefit from this service, which is both straightforward and expeditious.
First, as usual, upload your Gerber files and BOM file, and select the board’s parameters and any other features. The system will generate the PCBA quotation as usual.
After completing the above, navigate to the functional testing section below and select “100% Functional Testing”. Then, upload the test plan instructing us how to test the board functions as expected. You can also upload the test plan before the boards are completed later.
Notes: Functional testing for one piece will typically increase the lead time by around two working days. High precision testing and high voltage testing or any testing that poses a health risk to technicians will not be accepted. Customers will be expected to pay for any specialist tools or materials required for testing.
If you are interested for more information on Seeed testing procedures and capabilities, please refer to the PCBA functional test FAQ.
With the help of Seeed Fusion functional testing, realize improved yield, greater efficiency, and cheaper turnkey PCB assembly. Get a quotation now and become one of the first to take advantage of free Seeed PCBA functional testing.
We are already know that Seeed has been engaged in the electronic design and production industry for more than 12 years. With extensive manufacturing experience, and ISO9001 quality management standards, Seeed is well aware of the importance of eliminating errors as soon as possible in the production cycle.
