High-speed Test System For Oversized PCBs

pcb test

atg Luther & Maelzer extended its range of Flying Probe Test Systems to support oversized test areas up to 40″x 60″ sizes of up to 27″ width. 

Special network technology and aerospace applications are driving the demand for high test coverage and 4-wire testing (Kelvin test) for large PCBs. However, 4- or 8-head solutions are not satisfying customer requirements for speed and throughput. atg Luther & Maelzer develops flying probe systems to make it possible to use a higher number of probes per test area resulting in faster test time and lower cost of test.

The company has recently launched the 16-, 20- and 24-head machines with test areas of up to 40’’ width. Depending on the number of test heads, the resulting maximum test area sizes are 40″x40″, 40″x50″or 40″x60″.


atg Luther & Maelzer Sales Director for Europe and responsible product manager, Peter Brandt, highlights: “The new systems make our high-end test methods now also available for the test of oversized PCBs. When considering that the 24 head version allows up to 15,000 contacts per minute, it is a significant leap forward for our customers“.

Key Features of the new high-speed test system for oversized PCBs:

  • High-speed high throughput test system for backpanel and server boards
  • Extra wide test area of 40″ x 39,5″ (1016 mm x 1003 mm)
    16 test heads
  • Also available with 20 or 24 test heads for board sizes up to 43,3″ x 59,2″ (1100 mm x 1500 mm)
