Flexible Circuit Technologies (FCT) performs appropriate testing services for the given products that we produce and/or will employ custom customer required testing procedures, per requirements.
This includes prototype, first article, and production testing as required to meet customer requirements.
For bare flex production the most common testing is open/short testing near the final stages of productions. Often this requires the development of a test fixture in order to maximize speed by testing full panels of the circuits that are produced.
For certain products an AOI (Automated optical inspection) test may be incorporated during production process.
For flex circuit assemblies the most common test is an electrical test of openings, shorts, on, off, or further customized testing procedure dependent on customer specification and requirements.
For more advanced sub-assemblies and for box builds, FCT can work with the customer to develop specific functional testing up to and including real-time access to online test results.
