The world has never moved so fast. Product life cycles are being squeezed like never before. Your product is the end result of numerous complex processes. You are manufacturing ever smaller runs of increasingly diverse boards whose shrinking real estate is packed with added functionality and ever finer features.

Best choice in equipment
Testing your bare boards is our business. It’s our core, our strength and our passion. We won’t try to sell you equipment: on the contrary, with your needs firmly in mind, we are totally supplier-independent, systematically benchmarking the best equipment on the market prior to making our own investment decisions. Gardien’s test centers are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that maximizes our performance and yours by delivering the fastest, most reliable results possible.
Full test services
To meet our clients’ ever changing requirements, Gardien offers a full range of inspection services, including electrical test using universal grid testers, fixtures, and flying probes, and AOI verification. Given the complexity of today’s advanced HDI boards, it’s essential that we keep up to speed with new developments. We pride ourselves on our ability to assess objectively all new test technologies and techniques as they become available. In this way, our customers know they are getting the best service in the industry. We back this up with Gardien’s proprietary front end data processing capabilities and a long tradition of fixture design, drilling and building.
We tailor our offering to your specific needs, from a quick one-off test of your latest prototype or preproduction run, right through to our flagship offering, Gardien’s Level 3 service. This is outsourced inspection at its best: a complex test cell that is managed by Gardien but that is custom designed for integration into your own manufacturing site and logistics management systems.
The power of independence
Leading edge sectors such as aerospace, semiconductor manufacture, power generation, defense and logistics all insist upon independent testing and certification for their products. For good reason: many of their products are life- or time-critical, making an objective assessment of their capabilities essential. Similarly, the independent verification of your bare boards is powerful testament to your commitment to quality, and a significant addition to your product’s value.
With all these compelling reasons to outsource it’s not surprising that more and more companies Go Gardien
