Cascade’s Test Engineering Team

Our test engineering team has designed test stations and test specifications independently as well as in conjunction with our customers. Our test engineering team ensures that quality requirements are met through a wide range of problem-solving techniques. Together, CST test engineers work to embed Design for Test thinking for board and system layouts to minimize capital and resource investment for mass manufacturing.

CST Test Strategy

The CST test strategy is designed to ensure that the appropriate level of testing is performed at the earliest stage in the board-level and system-level manufacturing and build processes to reduce cost through early defect detection. These tests include:

  • Functional test development
  • PCBA functional testing within ICT
  • Boundary Scan
  • Simple to fully automated testing of PCBA and finished products
  • Testing of microelectronic devices

This supports a variety of test platforms including:

  • Flying Probe
  • System Verification Test (SVT)
  • Functional Verification Test (FVT)
  • Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
  • Automated X-ray Inspection (AXI) and real-time x-ray analysis
