The Test Connection’s Bert Horner to Present ‘Basics of Setting Up a Successful Test Strategy’ at PCB Carolina

Reading time ( words)

The Test Connection’s Bert Horner will be presenting "The Basics of Setting Up a Successful Test Strategy" at the upcoming PCB Carolina show on November 9.

Testing is a vital part of circuit card assembly. Without proper testing, an entire printed circuit board lot can come to you flawed in more ways than one. Having your product fail in the field is the wrong time to find out your CCA has flaws. Horner will speak to when to start planning and what steps should be taken to eliminate failure before your product reaches its destination.

Bert Horner is the president of The Test Connection Inc (TTCI). With a degree in Computer Science from UMBC, Bert followed his father, Bill Horner, into the world of test engineering. Bert grew up in the business, beginning at TTCi when he was a teenager.  Over the last 30+ years, he has held many positions at TTCI that range from technician and engineer to business development. Early on, witnessing how some companies (good, strong companies) valued Design for Test (DfT) and spent valuable time planning their test strategies sparked his passion for DFT and measuring test solutions value. 

To attend Horner’s presentation, visit PCB Carolina on November 9th at the ​McKimmon Center in Raleigh, North Carolina and be sure to stop by The Test Connection’s booth on the show floor for more information about their products and services.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.

Automotive Initiatives Make Headway at IPC APEX EXPO

02/25/2022 | Tracy Riggan, IPC
A significant number of automotive activities made notable strides at this year’s IPC APEX EXPO. Several committees dedicated to creating and updating automotive addenda for existing IPC standards, like assembly processes, PCB fabrication, and high-voltage cable, met and were led by companies like Toyota, Bosch, Continental, and Elmatica. Automotive dedicated groups, like the Cold Joining/Press-fit Task Group, also met and discussed inclusions in its next planned revision.
