In Circuit Test

Inspect an assembly at the individual component level

The In-Circuit Test (ICT) is a test procedure in the electronics industry. Electronic assemblies are checked for functionality. Assemblies are assembled printed circuit boards / circuit boards on which all components, electrical connections, connector feeds and much more are tested. Test access is via test pins. Our test fixtures take on this task.

More about ICT

In-circuit testing (ICT) is a method of testing electronic circuits during manufacture to check their functionality, quality and reliability. It is a highly automated and fast test method that uses special test equipment to check the individual components and connections of a printed circuit board.

In the ICT process, the PCB is inserted into a test fixture that contains a series of test probes. The test probes come into contact with test points on the PCB, and the ICT system sends test signals to each component and connection on the PCB. The system then measures the response of each component to the test signals, compares the results to expected values, and generates a report of any errors or defects detected.

ICT is a non-destructive testing method that can detect a variety of defects, including open circuits, shorts, missing components, incorrect component values, and component misalignment. It is sometimes used in the manufacture of complex electronic products such as computer motherboards, telecommunications equipment and automotive electronics.
