Thanks Artur - I e-mailed my presentation to Suzanne, so I haven't had the opportunity to test the revised functionality. I guess somebody else will though, in time.

I know how hard it is to get a new website working the way people expect (I run the SJTAG website) - someone will always find a combination of buttons to push that you didn't test!

In general, the site works well, though Smiley

Ian, thank you very much for a very extensive comment. Our new web site was just launched several months ago and it is true that we still have some flaws in its structure and settings. I'm very sorry for the lost time you had to spend when uploading your contrubution.

The problems you mentioned must be fixed now. ZIP as well as RAR extentions are valid. The max file size is 10MB.

Alternatively, you can always send your presentation file(s) to NTF Secretary by e-mail: sho[at]microlex.dk

If the web site functionality does not correspond to your expectations, please feel free to keep writing comments in this forum or report directly to artur[at]nordictestforum.org.

Thanks again!
Artur Jutman

What topics do you like to hear about in future TestForums?
Do you like to present a topic yourself?
Is there a specific speaker you would like to hear?

Please post your views here, mail them to the committee or tell us at TestForum 2008.

It is not so complicated, not simple either, thing to build it by yourself. Of cource it depends on what kind of accurace requirements you have etc.. In the past I have used Cognex insight with simple ring light + some additional lights when needed. Depending on your needs, if it is manual or in-line solution, things get more complicated.

I was trying to upload my paper for NTF 2008 today using the My Papers submissions page and hit a couple of limitations that possibly should be explained before someone tries to upload files:
  • I had two files to upload - the presentation itself and a PDF copy for distribution. I decided to zip them so I only needed to upload one file. I selected the file and clicked the "Attach" button, After watching the progress bar for several minutes, I got an error message telling me that the filename didn't have one of the allowed extensions Undecided
  • The individual files were of allowed types, so I tried to attach the PDF. Again after several minutes, I got another error message, reporting that the file was larger than the 1MB maximum Angry
It looks like the file only gets checked after it has been transferred to the server.
Apart from a 1MB limit seeming a bit small (I expected 8MB, which is a common HTTP file transfer limit), I could have saved myself some time if these limits were stated on the submission page, rather than only appearing in error messages, but I don't know how much control you have over the page content there.

Dear NTF member,

NTF is seeking for a very hot topic for panel discussion on the first day of the Test Forum 2008. This can be anything around production testing technologies. Just some hints below:

- Functional vs. Structural testing
- What is the future of Boundary Scan?
- Will 1149.4 be still alive after 5 years?

You have a chance to influence the Test Forum 2008 program! Propose your topic!

I know of some companies that can provide turn key solutions for these purposes. National Instruments have a number of these type of camera solutions that can be adapted for use in checking if components are correctly mounted or present. Many of their partners can provide a turn key solution for this. I guess it depends where you are located which partner it is.
Also I know that the company from Finland called Orbis can provide these type of turn key solutions.

If you do something on this then I hope you can come and present the solution at the Test Forum some time in the future.

Please, consider attending the Test Forum 2008 event in Tallinn. We are preparing an interesting program that tentatively will include also a presentation about experience with the Bead Probe technology.

This what's licenced:

Agilent Medalist Bead Probe Technology is a proprietary technology for incorporating test probes (beads) on printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs), and testing PCBAs with these Test Probes. In addition to other intellectual property rights (IPR) in Agilent Medalist Bead Probe Technology, Agilent has filed several patent applications on various aspects of Bead Probe Technology, and these include fabricating PCBAs with Test Probes and testing PCBAs with Test Probes.

So to answer your 2 questions for the PWB designer and test engineer; not without a proper license.
