Substantial Yield Improvements with ECT’s LFRE Probes for PCBA Testing
ECT probes with proprietary Lead-free plating passed extensive qualification at a major US based OEM
Everett Charles Technologies’ (ECT’s) LFRE plated probes successfully passed an extensive qualification testing with an incumbent probe at a major US based OEM for power infrastructure equipment. ECT’s LFRE proprietary plated spring probes demonstrated a significant improvement in first pass yield and fully met the customer’s expectations in contact reliability and probe life.
This customer’s fist pass yield was negatively impacted by continuity fails due to poor contact. In head to head testing with traditional gold plated probes, LFRE plated probes offered a more reliable contact, lasted longer and required less cleaning in high volume production test applications.
