ASTRON and IBM cordially invite colleagues interested in testing of digital systems to attend this interactive and hands-on Dome workshop.

This workshop will address production and functional testing of digital systems. Topics to be presented and discussed include: what exactly needs to be tested in digital systems, what can be tested, how to prepare a test programme, and what are limitations in testing? In addition to these test considerations, practical tests and test approaches will be presented as well. These include X-ray tests, optical inspection, flying probe/needle tests, needle bed tests, and boundary scan. After these sessions, hands-on demonstrations will be given of several test set-ups.

The workshop will be of a practical and interactive nature, and participants are encouraged to participate in the discussions. Presentations and demonstrations will be given by engineers form Variass, Batenburg, Transfer/JTAG, IBM, and ASTRON. Registration is required via:
