CheckSum Wins 2019 Mexico Technology Award for Parallel Functional Test

Reading time ( words)

CheckSum has again established its leadership in the test and inspection industry with the announcement of its 2019 award for Test Equipment at the Mexico Technology Awards. The award for Parallel Functional Test was presented to Ana Orozco during a Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019 ceremony that took place at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum. 

Ana Orozco, Mexico Sales Manager, said, “Mexico has strategically been elected by Electronic Manufacturers worldwide. Checksum's parallel Functional Test Solution enables manufacturers to establish leading processes by keeping up with the TAKT Time, reducing costs and manual handling and by increasing production capacity, to mention some advantages. I'm proud to be part of a company that never stops innovating.”

Electronics manufacturers are struggling with a new problem in their factories.  Ever faster, smaller and more capable semiconductors have made many of the boards they produce even smaller.  Consequently, they are manufactured in panels of many small boards.  

Modern production technology is capable of producing these panels extremely fast, but most of the current testing processes cannot keep up. This throughput mismatch between small board production and test is the problem that CheckSum’s new Parallel Functional Test solves.

By testing all the boards in a panel simultaneously, the test process is able to keep up with modern production, providing several major benefits for manufacturers: 

  • Immediate Feedback to Manufacturing
  • No Human Handling with Inline Testing
  • No Untested Inventory Buildup, No Rework due to Inline Testing
  • Simpler Process – No Separate Test Cell

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers over the last 12 months.
