TestForum 2003

December 2 - 3, 2003, at Comwell Borupgaard, Snekkersten, Denmark

TestForum is an annual event that Nordic Test Forum (NTF)
runs every fall/early winter. NTF also runs 2 to 3 thematic events
during a year, but these are focused events addressing basically only
one topic area, each in the area of test and inspection of electronics,
whereas TestForum typically has 3-thematic areas and cover the broader
balance of test and inspection as well.

This year the number of attendants where around 50 and came from the
Nordic countries as well as from Germany, Great Britain, France, The
Netherlands and USA.

Key note speaker Stig Öresjö (Agilent Technologies, USA) presented "Test
strategies yesterday, today and tomorrow".

More invited speakers where Michael J. Smith (Teradyne Assembley Test
Division, USA) presenting "The effects of Business and Technology on
Image Inspection" and Göran Wetter (IVF, Industrial R&D Corp., Sweden)
presented "Real-time microfocus X-ray - a tool for quality control and
failure analysis of electronics". Gunnar Carlsson (Ericsson, Sweden) had
to stay in bed, but had prepared the presentation "System Test and
Boundary Scan".

The three sessions where

1. Boundary Scan - System test

2. Functional test and fixtures

3. AOI/AXI inspection

The panel session was "Does AOI/AXI remove the need for ICT and
functional test?"

The answer was NO! All techniques are needed, however it is product
dependent, what technique to use.
