ASSET InterTech published a new ebook: How to Debug Dead Boards in Production. The new publication is a case study that will help circuit board manufacturers who want to recover their investment in assembled boards that won’t boot so called dead boards and still maintain the tight production deadlines that constantly reduce the time they can spend on board debug.
How to Debug Dead Boards in Production Topics
- Maintain higher yields with diminishing probe access
- Debug and recover dead boards that don’t boot
- Bin problems fast and create a feedback loop for production
The ebook guides engineers through the ins and outs of a changing production test environment. It is based on case study data provided by a manufacturer of Intel-based circuit boards costing in the range of $10,000 to $20,000. The principles described in the article applies to any circuit board manufacturer.
The ASSET InterTech technical paper outlines a methodology for quickly identifying the fault categories that dead boards fall into and how to apply narrowly focused diagnostic procedures to quickly identify the root causes of board failures. In addition, this root cause information can form the basis for a feedback loop to dynamically improve manufacturing processes, eliminating faults in real-time and increasing manufacturing yields.
