 TESTER DESIGN 

Matric has in-line and MDA test capabilities for manufacturing your product. Quality of your product can improve when we include burn-in and/or full functional testing. Exercising your unit with real life or simulated loads can provide confidence that the product will work in your end application.

Matric can deploy one of your testers with an established procedure or help to create a new tester and procedure from very limited information. Customer involvement is recommended and likely includes approval of test rigs and procedures.

FUNCTIONAL TEST EQUIPMENT APPROACHES:

  • Customer provides Matric full test rig and procedure to use on their product
  • Customer provides tester specifications and IP for full test rig creation by Matric
  • Customer provides target assembly I/O and functional definition for Matric to create a tester
  • Customer provides schematic, PCBA sample or turnkey sample for Matric to create a tester
  • * Customer is requested to approve test methods and test procedure
 

HELPFUL DOCUMENTATION:

  • Tester drawings
  • Wiring diagrams & procedures
  • Assembly schematics, BOMs, Gerbers, or theory of operation
  • Application or test software to exercise target assemblies
  • Sample loads/interface equipment datasheets or samples
