Functional Level II Fixtures
Functional fixtures use a wide array of platforms, including CheckSum, Mechanical Test Fixtures, and Others. The fixture supports CAD data types of Gerber and NetList – combined with x, y files. Functional testing of assembled PCB, this fixture uses ESD G10 material and you close the lid and then provide pressure down on the UUT by using the lever. This provides a true vertical down pressure on the UUT.
These fixtures typically require fewer test points and most often the test is performed on custom bench top test systems.

Gardien certifies each order processed with a Certificate of Compliance with details about how the order was processed, what specifications were used to certify the product, equipment used with calibration expiry date, team member who processed the order, quantity, and failure analysis.
Gardien strongly recommends that the test sequence and parameters are clearly stated on the manufacturing drawing or at a minimum agreed upon during the quoting or contract realization phase. In addition, any PCB sent to us for processing should have a unique identifier on each peace for electronic traceability.
