This paper describes a novel approach to printed circuit board testing capable of providing unprecedented failure detection and prognostic capabilities. In contrast to today's bulky automatic test equipment (ATE) and expensive test program sets (TPSs) that perform simple parametric testing, this approach utilizes nanoscale sensor technology in conjunction(More)
This paper describes research and development efforts in the application of advanced optical techniques for prognostic analysis of printed circuit boards and their components. Current methods of automated electronic testing require development of costly unique test program sets (TPSs) for each type of board, and only return information related to the(More)
This paper describes research and development efforts in the use of infrared (IR) laser beams for detecting failures in integrated circuits resident on printed circuit boards. This work involves taking advantage of the transparency of the silicon substrate of ICs to radiation in the near infrared (NIR) spectrum to devise a non-invasive method for imaging(More)
“What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet;..“ William Shakespeare (1564 — 1616), "Romeo and Juliet", Act 2 scene 2. Whilst the management of Data Items (Publications, Drawings and Software) doesn't always “smell sweet”, and (unlike Romeo with Juliet) is seldom thought of as going “hand-in-hand” with learning(More)
