What is a Fixture Test?
Fixture test uses a ‘Jig’ or better called ‘Fixture’ to transfer the electrical current from the machine to the SMT or holes on the printed wiring board (PCB). Hence, performing the electrical test as defined (link to ET). The fixture uses various sizes and types of conductive wires called ‘test pins’ to transfer the current from the machine to the PCB. The initial cost to produce a fixture is high but this cost is offset by the speed of performing the test on each PCB. Due to the cost of tooling each part number a fixture test is most economical from medium to high volume batches.
