What is the PCB flying probe test?

Flying probe test is a check PCB electric function method (one of the short circuit test). Flying probe tester is for component layout density, layer number, wiring density, small distance of measuring points of PCB (printed circuit board), a kind of testing instrument, the insulation of the main test circuit board and conduction values.

The advantages include: rapid test development; Low cost test method; Fast conversion flexibility; and in the prototype stage for designers to provide rapid feedback.

The disadvantages include: Because of easy programming, to within a few hours test prototype assembly, and test the low yield of UUT without typical fixture development costs, flying probe test can solve many problems in production environment. But not all production test problem can be solved by using the probe automatically.
