ICT- In Circuit Testing at a Glance
|Set Up Costs||Can be expensive. PCBAs must have test points. Clam Shell fixtures and programming can be £10K or more for a double sided PCBA|
|Speed||Excellent test speed. Seconds rather than minutes|
|Coverage||Excellent IF test points have been designed in|
|Operator Level Required||Excellent. Non technical|
|Fault Finding||Excellent. Fault information is normally component or if not net level|
|Running Cost||Excellent. Very low test and maintenance costs|
ICT is a fast and efficient method of testing. Typically used for higher volume boards that are unlikely to be changed and will run for some time due to the higher initial set up costs needing to be paid back over time.
