Test Board Design

Multiple ATE platforms, one leading player

ATE’s are our specialty, with over 15 years of experience in Test development we can safely say we have a good handle on our Test HW. Swift design of load boards, probe cards, associated test fixtures, and value-added services like fabrication, assembly and test allow us to deliver more than just a board. Hence, several of the world’s leading semiconductor companies consider us as their preferred supplier. We have a 24/7 design cycle and an integrated quality system that has kept our re-designs to <1% and while clocking in an average of 130 designs per month. Understanding the project requirements, our professionals may advise ways of designing Test HW that is cost effective but still meet the requirements. It may go through multiple assessments and iterations for achieving the required result.

FAQs

What information/data is required to get a quote?

Tessolve has customized Input checklists for ATE and System application boards. The data required for both PCB designing and Manufacturing is listed in the checklist. Please reach out to sales@tessolve.com to receive the checklist.

Can I get Turn-key service?

Yes, Tessolve offers services from Schematic Design to Tested Hardware delivery with our in-house capabilities – Schematic Design, Library development, Schematic Capture, Layout design, Simulation, Mechanical Design, and Supply chain Management.

Can I get round the clock design service?

Tessolve can provide 24×7 support on-demand basis when the timeline is critical for that project.

Can Tessolve support our in-house PCB Designers?

Tessolve can support the customer’s in-house PCB design team on a Time & Material basis for all PCB design tasks. Customers in different time zones than Tessolve India can benefit from using Tessolve designers while their designers are off.

How is my IP protected?

Tessolve is very particular in handling Customer Confidential information and strictly adheres to Non-Disclosure Agreements.

All our employees have signed a Confidentiality Agreement with the company and our IT security ensures secured access to customer data.

Does Tessolve perform VALOR (Design for Manufacturability) checks?

Tessolve has an in-house CAM Engineering team to perform VALOR checks for all the designs. Gerbers are validated in VALOR tools against the DFM of the Manufacturer and IPC standards. Feedback is implemented in the design and upon approval from CAM Engineering, Gerbers are released to Manufacturing.

What standards does Tessolve follow for PCB design?

Tessolve follows IPC standards for Library development and PCB design. But, if a customer has a standard, we will adapt to it and ensure the board is manufacturable and reliable.

What is the maximum thickness and Layer count Tessolve can design?

Tessolve specializes in ATE boards which are generally high layer count and thicker boards. We have done ATE boards with max. layer count of 64 and max. the thickness of 7.5mm.

Can Tessolve recommend Materials and Surface finishes?

Tessolve has first-hand experience with cutting-edge technologies by working with Top Tier Semiconductor companies in the world. Our experience in designing hardware for applications like 5G, Radar, HSIO, PAM4, etc. enables us to recommend the right choice of Materials and Surface finishes. Working closely with PCB manufacturers, Tessolve has a good knowledge base of high-speed materials like Rogers, Megatron, Meteorwave, and Smooth copper finishes.

In most cases, the entire stack-up may not need high-speed materials because the high-speed traces will be limited to certain layers only. In such cases, Tessolve can recommend the right Hybrid stack-up (High-speed material + Standard FR4) which can be cost-effective but also reliable.

Does Tessolve suggest appropriate Via technology for a board?

Yes, Tessolve has years of experience in handling Fine and Ultra-fine pitch BGAs in designs. Choosing the right Via is very critical for Signal Integrity and as well as it affects Manufacturing Lead time and Cost. Considering all these aspects, we suggest the right Via technology (Through vias, Flip-drilled vias, Back-drilled vias, Blind vias, Micro vias) for a design.
