Press Release: 16 Site Module Test Fixture
May, 14 2018
This custom test fixture designed for military and aerospace applications serves two primary functions. First as a soldering/assembly station which aligns tray based modules with flex circuitry to surface mount connectors of choice. Second as a fully functional test fixture with site independent contacts in the fixture base and lid for single or ganged test configurations.
A pad on the topside of each DUT assembly is contacted via a spring pin block incorporated into the lid. 4 position Molex connectors are used on the interface board for each site.
Customer Design Requirements:
Multi-site benchtop test fixture for PCB panel testing. The fixture is tested in an environmental chamber over the temperature range of f-50C through +90C. One of two fixture lids allows contact to the topside of each DUT while the other allows for assembly and separation of each unit. A rotary switch is used to switch all required signals as a group when switching between 1 and 16 sites. A 4 pin male connector and BNC connector mounted to the PCB allows access to a PC and oscilloscope.
