Hold Down Gates
Hold Down Gates allow the board to be isolated from the vacuum chamber that is created to actuate the board onto the probes, this allows for greater opportunity to have direct board access through holes added to the lexan.
Compressing the PCBA evenly against the test probes and making reliable contact to the test pads is critical to maximizing test performance. The ECT team will evaluate your PCBA and your manufacturing test environment to determine the best top plate hardware solution for your fixture. Our standard products are designed to fit on our Micro Matrix Kits and minimizing the loss of usable area to place your PCBA.
