Top share of printed circuit boards (PCBs) inspection system "capacitive measurement method" models

Hioki PCB and substrate inspection equipment leverages our core competency in high precision component testing. The FA1816 is a horizontal-loading, single-side flying probe tester with a rapid 100 times/second test speed.

FA1816 Product Introduction Video

Latent defects on HDI & substrate. Definitely detect out each FAIL. Hi-speed test by capacitance measurement. Much fewer steps than resistance testing.
Significantly improved operability
Screens: Important information has been consolidated on a single screen, and a graphical interface allows intuitive operation.
Control: A workflow menu is now available to streamline the test data creation process.
Master data creation: Previously, operators had to carry out a variety of steps, including acquiring basic data and qualifying a sample board as a reference master, in order to create the master data that serves as the standard for pass/fail judgment. The FA1816 automates this process so that the operator need only click a single button, shortening control time and reducing operator workload.
