Datest will exhibit at the Northwest Electronics Design and Manufacturing Expo (NEDME, a.k.a. OctoberBest), scheduled to take place Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at Tektronix in Beaverton, Oregon. Robert Boguski and Regina Lathrop from Datest will discuss the company’s testing, engineering and PCB reverse engineering services, and value-added services including:
- 3D and CT-Scan X-ray/Failure Analysis Services
- Bonepile Rehabilitation Services
- Improved and Enhanced Flying Probe Test Services
- Improved and Enhanced In-Circuit Testing Services
- Laboratory Services and the Datest “Ecosystem”
Datest also will discuss its latest equipment acquisition – a VJ Technologies custom microfocus vault 225kV X-ray CT system, which can X-ray parts up to 110lbs at resolutions as small as 5 microns. System applications include digital radiography, volumetric comparisons, metrology, nominal/actual comparisons for additive manufacturing, and porosity analysis of castings, to name just a few of many capabilities. This high precision platform is ideal for failure analysis, materials science, precision measurement, inspection, and more, and has allowed Datest to expand its X-ray and CT offerings to such diverse industries as biotech, automotive, aerospace, academia and many others.
Additionally, Datest will discuss its extensive lab services, including XRF, SEM-EDX, Dye & Pry, cross-sectioning and C-SAM. An ISO9001- and AS9100D-certified company, Datest has been providing the CM/EMS as well as the OEM community with advanced, integrated PCBA testing and inspection services since 1984. The company offers in-circuit testing (ICT) and test development (hardware and software) for all major ICT platforms (Agilent 3070, GenRad, and Teradyne).
Datest augments ICT with SPEA Flying Probe testing, Agilent 5DX and Nordson DAGE Ruby 2D X-ray with 3D X-Plane Technology, benchtop boundary scan and functional testing. The company also offers a wide ecosystem of partner companies providing complimentary laboratory, test and failure analysis services. The common thread binding all of these services is the ability to fill an urgent need, or render a verdict in a dispute, or solve a pressing problem, for an engineer with no time to lose. Datest’s award-winning customer service staff ensures rapid response and maximum feedback and satisfaction, even if the harsh truth is that that the analysis confirms what was already suspected: a process defect or product anomaly. Better to get the information fast and fix it than let it linger and burn time and money.
NEDME brings engineers, entrepreneurs and purchasing professionals together with local and regional suppliers who can help them develop innovative products and services within the electronics manufacturing industry. Attendees and exhibitors benefit from valuable keynotes and technical sessions. NEDME contributes 100 percent of net entrance proceeds to the Oregon Food Bank.
