Flying Probe Testing Ensures PCBA Quality, Reliability at BSU

Reading time ( words)

Flying Probe Testing is an integral part of Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) at BSU Inc., ensuring that the correct electronic components are properly positioned and operating correctly on customers’ assembled electronic products. Such testing ensures the robust reliability and quality of each PCBA assembled. BSU Inc. is a growing EMS company centrally located in Austin, Texas.

“Flying Probe testing technology has been utilized for more than twenty years in the PCB fabrication and assembly sectors,” states Ahmad Chamseddine, President. “Here at BSU, in our low to medium-volume/high mix manufacturing environment, it is a cost-saving alternative to in-circuit test, where the high cost of in-circuit fixturing makes flying probe an attractive alternative,” says Chamseddine. “Not only does it save our customers money, but it’s fast, accurate, and ensures the highest level of quality that our customers have come to expect from us.”

He added, “Our TAKAYA system is a highly sophisticated robotic testing machine with arguably greater capability and flexibility particularly with densely populated boards with tall components. The features of our flying probe testing system enable greater test capability as well as increased test throughput.”

BSU Inc’s services include Prototyping, PCB Assembly, Engineering Design Services (EE, ME), High Mix Low to Medium Volume production, Mechanical, Electrical, Cabling and SW/FW programming, Board and Functional Testing, and Global supply chain services, to name a few. In addition to PCBA assembly, BSU also offers box build services, wiring harness assembly, complex and simple cables, and mechanical components assembly. BSU Inc’s customers span multiple industries including industrial, IoT, military and high reliability, entertainment, healthcare, education, energy, and communications, to name a few.
